I recently downloaded a game off of Steam and immediately after trying to run it I received an error message which said: "Failed to create Direct3D9 device". I have had this error message before and did manage to resolve the issue by updating all my drivers. So I decided to give that a try but still I receive the error. I opened DirectX (dxdiag) to check if I could see any error messages there but there was nothing. I did notice something under display though, both DirectDraw Acceleration and AGP Texture Acceleration are "Not Available". I tried reinstalling DirectX but wasn't successful.
