The only time I've gotten those errors is when I pick a widescreen resolution for the game to run in. See if you get the same errors when using a nonwidescreen resolution.

download and install the latest directX updates. I'm pretty sure that's your problem. i had the same thing happened to me when i reformatted last week. service pack 3 does include a directx 9.0c, however it's basic.
