 direct3d cannot initialize HAL

i have a geforce 2 mx 100/200 nvidia card with agp 64 mb and tv out,it
worked great on my xp pro final,for months,and about a week ago every
application or game that used direct 3d stopped functioning ,i tried system
restore points,that did'nt work,i used older drivers,uninstalled the card
and reinstalled it,i even just finished reinstalling xp over,and yet the
same errors are occuring,and i've had little luck finding support for this
issue online,someone please help me out.

it's strange because every other function except direct 3d works on the
card,including smooth 2d screen graphical effects and very high resolutions

Hi all, 

I was trying to run Diablo II under WINE, but I receive a "Direct3D
failed to initialize" error in a dialog box. The log says this:
***** DirectDraw error: Failed to get gamma control interface! - <

error message. I'm using Linux 2.4.1, XFree86 4.0.1 on a GeForce256 DDR
with the NVidia 0.9-6 drivers and WINE release 20010112 (CodeWeavers
