Default Direct 3D

Ok I launched dxdiag and went to display and tested Direct 3D and this error came up:

No problems found.
To test DirectDraw functionality, click the "Test DirectDraw" button above.
Direct3D 7 test results: All tests were successful.
Direct3D 8 test results: Failure at step 6 (No hardware supported display modes found): HRESULT = 0x80004005 (Generic failure)
Direct3D 9 test results: Failure at step 6 (No hardware supported display modes found): HRESULT = 0x80004005 (Generic failure)

Anyone know how to correct this errors. I'm trying to play a game and a D3D9 application error pops ups saying that it cant find a compatible Direct 3D, so I'm suspecting this is the problem. Does anyone know if it is?

No, you don't need to uninstall. Just reinstall it onto the default directory.

This time, try to reinstall updated video card drivers.
Uninstall old ones before the install.

Also, what video card you hard?

I have the nvidia geforce go 7900 gs for laptops. I'm not sure exactly how to uninstall those drivers? Where do i go to delete them?

EDIT: Never mind about the uninstallation. I got it, but where do I go to install the drivers?
