    how do i get rid of dx9

    I installed dx9 today. I had dx8.1

    Can I uninstall 9 and go back to 8.1?

    What's going on is that when I go into system information, tools, and then the direct x diagnostic tool, it hangs and says there is no direct 3d acceleration. There was that feature.

    What I have done so far is to take out a voodoo 3 2000 pci card, remove the drivers as far as I know, install the 4.35via drivers, put in a new radeon 9000pro, install the software from the cd, and seemed ok, cept that the older version of UT won't run properly. It is slow to open, doesnt see the new card info, have to change a setting when it opens, it runs, and is laggy. Takes forever to get into the game, if at all. Sometimes it hangs there and I have to reboot and all.

    So, I guess there are a couple of questions here.
    For one, how do I get the direct 3d acceleration going again?
    Two, how do I get rid of dx9 if I need to and get 8.1 back?

    Also, if any of you are using the 9000pro and have some time to chat with me about the correct use of it/settings and all, could you look me up on msn's im. rsr86@hotmail.com

    Add me on your list please, invite me into a chat. Thanks

    Or post something here.
