I have got directX 9a installed on my laptop, but recently for some unknown reason direct 3D has decided to stop working because, according to dxdiag my hardware "doesn't support it"?? Well it did up until recently. I have tried reinstalling my graphics card drivers without any luck. I haven't updated the drivers and still use the ones that came with my laptop as Sony recommend against using ones that haven't been certified by them. The card is a Mobility Radeon 7500 I think it has something to do with directx being muffed but I can't reinstall it.
