Well. Here I am on my last leg of sanity before I throw this !@#$ing computer out the window.

Im having some issues with DirectX 3D functionality and accelerator. By issues I mean they are not there and they should be. I installed/uninstalled COUNTLESS drivers and programs that should fix the problem but none of them have worked. My cash is short so please give solutions I dont have to pay for.

I ran dxdiag and at the bottom of the display tab it says:
-The system is using the generic video driver. Please install video driver provided by the hardware manufacturer.
-To test DirectDraw functionality, click the "Test DirectDraw" button above.
-Direct3D functionality not available. You should verify that the driver is a final version from the hardware manufacturer.

and I tried all of that, to no avail, but speaking of dxdiag, here are the saved results:

Lastly, if it helps, my computer is a completely stock Emachines W3650

Can anyone out there help me?

By stock am I correct in that there is no add on video card only the MBs integrated video port.

Try updating the MBs chipset drivers, you can use the Automatically find drivers option Here to help with this.

Could you tell us a bit more about your system? Such as manufacuture and model info?

Issue is: The system is using the generic video driver. Please install video driver provided by the hardware manufacturer. Direct3D functionality not available

We need to help you to identify and install the correct video driver for the system so all the direct x functionality will be there.
