Hey guys ok problem is as follows, had Win2k on the machine with no problems.
bought a new HDD and decided to install WinXP SP2 (what was I thinking)
any way installation went fine installed all neccesary drivers and software,
decided to install 3Dmark05, tells me I need DX9c for it to run.
So I install Dx9 only to find that nothing happens even though it sais all the features were installed and are ready to use. didn't seem right so tried installing Dx9b again, same thing.
Eventually I ended up dl a dx uninstaller and guess what when running a dxdiag
only dx8 features are available, and still unable to install Dx9 b or c
so this really has me stumped.
Searched the net and only "fix" remotely corresponding to my system is that I to have Kerio Personal Firewall installed, now havn't tried to disable or un-install it yet I'll only be able to try that tonight.
If any one ever experienced this please let me know or if you have a solution cos this is really irritating
