Direct3D Errror...

Hey guys i have been tryin to get my Direct3D accelerator running for
the past week. Its not allowing me to play some of my games, just as i
lauch the game it comes up with an error msg "Direct3D could not be
correctly initialized...." Basically tells me to restart or reinstall
DirectX. Ive read over tons of forums and have updated my drives,
reinstalled directx, adjusted my hardware accelerator all the way. I
have been to the microsoft page to go through all of their steps and
still no luck. When i go into Run and the Dxdiag, It still shows that my
Direct3D, DirectDraw, and AGP Texture are all Not Available. I have even
reformatted my entire HD in hopes that i can reinstall and run some of
my games. If anyone knows more about this, please let me know.

I'd try cleaning out the video drivers, thus reverting to the standard
MS video driver, and reinstalling the Nvidia drivers. Then download and
install the DX 9c update. It's been some time since I had a similar
problem, and it was not with Vista. The final cure for the XP system was
(of all things) to download and install an Nvidia developer's kit.
Seems that some rather obscure registry settings were not correct.
There was an interim driver version release that actually turned out to
be the real culprit.
