Ello, I have a slight problem. I recently reformated my drive to clear a previous problem, and then installed all my games again. Upon double clicking a desired game, all have the same error along this line:

Unable to initialize 3D output. Please verify that you have installed DirectX 8, and an updated video driver

The problem is, is that I have DirectX 9, and as far as my driver program says, (Driver Detective) it says everything is up to date... I have no idea what to do, since everything appears ok, when obviously, they're not....

Well, I have a Microsoft XP Home Edition 2002. And now that I look at it, my video output devices (I have 2 video cards), and in my device manager they show up only as "Video Controller VGA Compatible," and the other shows up as "Video Controller," And they both have a computer sign with a yellow "!" sign on it, next to them.
