NO 3D acceleration on HD 5870

Hello. I've installed an ATI Radom HD 5870 today (Windows 7 64-bit)


I cannot open any games, and I've received the following messages:


- "Could not initialize Direct3D. Make sure you have current video drivers and close any other applications that might be running."+

- "This game requires a DirectX9.0c capable graphics card. Your card or driver does not support DirectX9.0 c 3D Acceleration"



Before this card, I had some crappy NVidia card. I've already uninstalled the old NVidia drivers and installed the latest ATI Catalyst driver (15.7.1).


DXDIAG gave me this. NOTE that the DDRAW status is UNAVAILABLE.
