    I have a Pentium 4 2.4 GHz with 20 GB system

    I have 3 partitions, C: D: and E:

    I had Win XP and Win 98

    I recently formatted C: and D: and installed Win XP Pro (without Win98)

    When I tried to install Direct X 9.0b i got the following message " This software is not digitally signed and will not be installed"

    I tried disabling the driver signing message but it was of no use.

    then I used the Repair Option in Win XP setup to reinstall windows XP

    After that I found My grafic and video drivers not working

    So I uninstalled them and restarted the system

    After that my system never Started . I shows the welcome screen and then restarts again..

    What do I do? :cry:

    Will Win XP start up disk be useful?

    the warning:
    "This software is not digitally signed and will not be installed"
    suggests to me that ur display drivers r not properly installed or the drivers u r currently using are pretty old.try updating ur drivers by
    downloading the latest graphics card drivers and then try to install direct x 9.0b.

    The startup disc will surely help if u r unable to boot.
    But ur system shows the welcome message.
    Press F8 at boottime n select the recovery console in XP(I think so) n
    perform the troubleshooting.
    If nothing works then format n go for a fresh n clean installation.

    The DirectX that you were trying to install was not a valid setup.

    Try installing DirectX9 from the di9it CD.

    That's pity on microsoft. It's own product is not digitally signed :) .
    It can happen sometimes if the archive is damaged. As busyanuj
    said install it from the digit DVD ;).
