Did you try this?


I upgraded my system to the intel D845wn with P4-2.4 processor. I used all the hardware from my previous board on which everything worked. With the new configuration I get the following err message"get drvice caps failed D3D err - not available on adapter 0".

I also notice that my direct 3d version is while my direct draw version is

I have installed direct x 9

Video card is compatible with mb, I have reformated multible times and loaded direct x 8.1 with same results. I am beginning to believe either my 3d card is bad or the mb is at fault.

power supply is 350 so lots of juice

Please help
