Default Radeon 9600xt Drivers

Almost all videogames made after 2000 do not work on my computer. All of them complain of hardware acceleration or direct3d problems (although it shows that hardware accelerations is on)

ex.
Fatal Error:
No D3D drivers with hardware acceleration found.

I have installed Catalyst 5.13, uninstalled it and reinstalled it several times with no improvement. I don't necessarily expect the hardware to be capable of playing the zenith of, but videogames made 5+ years ago should be no trouble.

What is especially strange is that 6 months ago these games worked fine and since then nothing has changed on my computer.

If you have any ideas about what is causing the problems I would appreciate it a lot.
Thank you,
Matthew Swoveland

Yeah for my next CPU I will probably head back to NVIDIA, but its pretty messed up because I could play all these games. 6 months ago I was pwning the field in source and now I can't play operation IGI.
