    Start - Run - type "dxdiag" and hit Enter

    That will run the DirextX diagnostics and tell you what you have on the opening screen at the bottom in the centre. Current version is 9c

    DiectX "is a utility that enhances multimedia capabilities on your computer. DirectX provides better playback of different types of multimedia and manages 3D graphics."
