Default Directx 9 (help)

I just bought Fallout 3 GotY and downloaded it off Steam. After if finished I tried to play and it went through the first time setup and failed step one (directX) Saying "The software you are installing has not passed windows Logo testing to verify its compatibility with windows XP" "This software will not be installed"

After that I went onto the windows website and tried installing Directx 9 and got the same error message. How can a program for windows XP off the windows site not be tested to work with XP??

Also for my Driver signing I can't change it to ignore always warn. It will let me set it to ignore but always sets back to warn.

I only have a X850XT PE but it should run the game on low settings. I get the error about windows logo testing on almost every program I try to install now. It all started about a month ago when I installed AVG free 2011.

Does anyone know a way I can just skip over the windows logo testing eg. setting my driver signing to ignore? if not I will have to buy a new PC but want to wait for the newer CPU's.


Thank you

No, not on the game install or the directx install but I did on the AVG free 2011 and the ATI Catalyst. I installed new drivers for the GPU to see if it would fix any problems but it didn't.

I just googled directX 9 and got this link and tried to install it. Is this not right?

Are you sure the X850XT PE is DX8? my computer says it has DX9, and the X850XT PE came out like two years after DX9 came out.

My System Specs

Default

The X850XT PE DOES support DX 9 but! most of the game use DX9.0C ( shader 3.0 ) while these older ati use DX9.0 ( shader 2.0 ) that could be the issue...I may be wrong on that it's a pretty long time since I use these.
