I am having serious issues with launching games on my new PC. I am trying to understand if my DirectX is to blame. I try to run the DirectDraw and Direct3D test in DxDiag utility and they both appear to fail. See screen shot attached for the exact error reports (bottom portion).

What is it telling me? What actions do I take to correct?

I ran the DirectX latest updater from MS website and it seemed to have patched some files, so I think I now have the latest version.

I have the following specs:
AMD Phenom X4 955 Black Edition
Crucial 2GB DDR3 memory (singel stick)
Diamond HD 2600XT video card (took it out from my old platform, so I know that there are no hardware issues here)
Latest Video driver is ATI 9.12
Win XP Pro, SP3
NET Framework 3.5 SP1
