    * Hardware accelerated Direct3D 9+ is not available because the display driver does not support it. You may be able to get a newer driver from the hardware manufacturer.

    * To test DirectDraw functionality, click the "Test DirectDraw" button above.

    * Direct3D 7 test results: All tests were successful.
