Go to start/run and type in dxdiag and hit enter. Under the Display tab you'll have the option to test DirectDraw. This might tell you what the problem is.

Here is one possibility

DDERR_EXCLUSIVEMODEALREADYSET
An attempt was made to set the cooperative level when it was already set to exclusive.

i would use dxdiag to see what version of directx i had (and if any problems) i would then go see what version video drive i had. then i would go to mfgs website and see if i had the latest version of the video driver installed and that it was compatible with the version of directx i had. i would put on the most recent version of directx that was compatible with my video card. might not be latest version, see?
