Default Driver Issue I Think....

My comp is fairly old but ever since the hardrive got fried and got a new one, I lost my Direct 3D availibility from my computer. Not exactly sure whats going on.

In DirectX Diagnostic Tool, I am displayed with this in the bottom...
-The system is using the generic video driver. Please install video driver provided by the hardware manufacturer.
-To test DirectDraw functionality, click the "Test DirectDraw" button above.
-Direct3D functionality not available. You should verify that the driver is a final version from the hardware manufacturer.
As well in DirectX Features, DirectDrawAcceleration, Direct3DAcceleration, and AGPTextureAcceleration are "Not Available."

The motherboard is Via P4MA (video,audio,lan)4 USB, 1 AGP slot.

Anyways let me know what you think is going on and for updates or something give me links plx im not the most computer smart person.
