Not sure how to explain this one.

I am trying to install Directx9 on my machine but, get half way through the installation (on the blue bar) then the installation freezes and will not continue. I have to ctrl/alt/delete-end task to get out of it. I have download directx9 from several sources but still does the same thing.
I have heard that it might be because my graphics card drivers are not up todate, so clicked on the link from my system settings to update my G.C. drivers but get directed to a Nvidia wewpage that doesn't exist.
I have a Nvidia GeForce2 MX/MX 400 graphices card and have been to thier website and followed thier driver download steps but end up downloading something called DetonatorFX which a) I don't know if is the right thing and b) have tried this and it doesn't work, but has stopped any previous game type programs that did work under directx8 from working.

Has anybody else had this same problem or suggest any things I should do to correct it
