What is wrong with my video card?

For some reason D3D hardware acceleration won't work for me anymore.I don't remember when it stopped working, but I think it was when I installed Windows XP. The computer I'm using is a Laptop Inspiron 8100. It has a 32MB Nvida GeForce Go video card. I already downloaded the new drivers for it, but it still won't work.

1. Which drivers did you download for it ? - IIRC the Detonator drivers will install properly, but aren''t the correct drivers for the GeForce2Go (i.e. won''t work properly) - you have to download special GeForce2Go versions of the drivers from the nVidia site.

2. What does DXDIAG say ? (Go to Run... from the start menu and type DXDIAG)

Thanks S1CA. I did the DXDIAG thing and found out my 3d acceleration was disabled. It works now.
