    Direct3D accelerators

    I opened up AA:SF and it said I needed to enable Direct3D accelerator. Then it said I start running dxdiag and click on the Display1/2 tab after installing DirectX 8.1b(or later) and the latest drivers for your graphics card. I did that but it said that Direct3D was unavailible .
    Please help

    What's AA:SF? If it's a game it sounds to me like you won't be playing it until you get a better graphics card. I guess it's possible it's a problem with Direct3D although that's unlikely. What version did you install, 9.0c?
    Good class architecture is not like a Swiss Army Knife; it should be more like a well balanced throwing knife.

    What graphics card are you using? I didn't know people still played America's Army.
