    well, i test dxdiag to show if my direct3d acceleration enable facility is present but it was not. The usual installation procedure i made. Insert the graphic card to the pci express slot and then install the driver(even update it to the latest one) and also the direct x(latest version) i installed it.

    well, i insert on the pci express slot and then when my window alerted that "found new hardware(vga compatible)". I insalled the driver(Even update it to the latest driver) and the direct x 9.0c! then there, when i dxdiag it the display features showed not of the direct 3d acceleration(enable facility). that's what i did. still now the direct3d is not enabled.

    Well, i just did the direct x diagnostic which is the dxdiag but unfortunately the direct3d acceleration is not enabled. Or in short, it's not present(highlighted). I cant even turn it on to enable/disable.

You did the correct order of things. There is a diagnostic file that comes with directx that might help you. Go into WIndows Explorer and find windows\system323\dxdiag.exe. Just click on it and see if will help you. Let me know how things turn out.

Lineage2 critical error problem

is it the first time that you will play linage 2? if yes, try to check if your video card is directx 8 compatible... make sure you have a geforce 6 series or higher video card to play the game. Also make sure that you have the latest video card drivers... update your video card installation. If you have no video card at all and you are running internal graphics chip. You may not be able to play the game. Get yourself at least a Geforce 6 series card. I sure hope this helps

Asus motherboard p5gc-mx1333 and asus en8500gt v card

First PC  right,not laptop. Take out you video card and find the exact model of the card. No go to the NVIDA website that you have liklly been to before and download the driver for the version of windows that you are using.  After downloading the driver(I place then on the Hard drive directly , easy to find) In Xp START - CONTROL PAMEL - INSTALL NEW HARDWARE - Have disk? NO - Find driver for you? NO - INSTALL tell it where the dribver is when asked. Hope this at least helps.   If the vidoeo came with the computer you can just go to the manufactor of the computer and with the make , model , and CPU slot number, look up the driver for the video instead of going to the  NVIDA site.
