No 3D :(

I had to RMA my 4200 so I borrowed a GeForce 4MX440 Now it's showing the same problem as the 4200. I have no 3D support. When I go to DirectX Diag. Tool and run "testing Direct3D" I get this message; Direct3D Test Results: Failure at step 5 [GetDeviceCaps]:   This is the same reason I RMA'ed my 4200. The only thing I have found that might be a problem  (not sure) is I have the following all sharing the same IRQ; VIA Tech 3038 PCI to USB Universal Host Controller ACPI IRQ Holder for PCI IRQ Steering Video Card My video card is a AGP slot, I have nothen installed in the top or bottom PCI slots. Anyone got ant ideas? I spent a hour or better on the phone with Gainward Tech support over the 4200 now I don't thinkthere was anything wrong with the card.     I'm running DirectX 8.1
