Unhappy "Unable to use 3D Hardware..."

Hello everyone.

I come here, desperated, looking for help, as I've done the same at XWA Upgrade.
Since yesterday I am trying to play XWA on my computer (Windows 7, EVGA GTX570, latest drivers), and I've tried everything I could find on the internet to play this amazing game with 3D hardware, unfortunately with no success.

Every time I start a mission, during the loading screen a message shows "Unable to use 3D hardware, using software".
After that, the game runs normally but in low quality.

I've tried the XWAhacker bat files, ddraw.dll file, compatibility modes, turning off features from the Nvidia panel, and nothing.

So I am on my knees, looking for help.
Does anyone could give me a clue?

Thanks a lot for any information and time spent on this thread.
Have a nice day, week, month and 2013.
Happy new year.

Best regards,
