    Check the diagnosis, you prolly are going to have to reinstall Direct X. If not, uninstall any other games that you have in there.

    Were you ever able to play it? If so, has anything changed since then?
    You might try installing all the patches.

    Or go into your C: drive, click Program Files, click Microsoft Games, click Halo, then click on haloupdate.exe. That should get the patches that you need.
