I am having problems reinstalling an ATI Radeon 1400's driver into my Dell Inspiron E1505 running windows XP, SP2.
When I try to install the driver from dell, it goes through installation, but then says it cannot continue because DirectX8 is not installed. I then installed Direct X 9.0, because I couldn't find 8.0, but the driver install still does not work.
Strangely, when I go to device manager and click on the ATI radeon 1400, it says the device is working fine and when I try to reinstall driver this way, it says that I have the latest driver.
Does anyone know what might be the problem or how i can check if DirectX is properly installed?
