Sam & Max S2 Ep 05 Direct3D Error

Hi, sorry to waste everyone's time here, but I keep getting the "Could not initialize Direct3D" error when I try to launch season 2 episode 5, which I am dying to play. I saw previous threads where people had a similar problem and tried what was recommended for them, but it's not working. I made sure the Compatibility boxes weren't checked on the .exe's Properties, I downloaded the latest version DirectX. I have a ATI Mobility Radeon x300, and the latest drivers I can find I got from Dell's site, and is from 2005. Anything I try to get from ATI's site, when I go to install it tells me that it is not compatible. It is also entirely possible that I can't find the correct drivers on ATI's site because it is a pain to navigate.

I am at a total loss for what to do, and I didn't change anything in my computer between playing the last episode and now so I have no idea what is going on.

I've gotten this error before in previous episodes if the game crashed after I adjusted the aspect ratio, but I was able to fix it those times by uninstalling and reinstalling, which I tried this time and it didn't work either.
