I am running Windows 2000 on a Compaq Presario 7940. I am running DirectX 7.0. There was a problem with getting my DirectX working properly. The directdraw drivers were not being recognized. I tried to mess around with an earlier version of direct draw and now somehow have messed up any program that would seem to use directX. The error that I receive is "entry point not found" "the procedure entry point MapLS could not be located in the dynamic link library KERNEL32.dll". It will not even let me load up any program that would use directX. I just keep getting that error. How do I go about fixing it?? Can anyone please help me with this. Thanks in advanced.

Greetings

Have you tried re-installing Win2K over the current installation? This might help. Also, remember that you are running an NT-based Operating system, not a Windows9x based operating system. DirectX is part of the operating system, not a multimedia add-on, so you can not just go installing DirectX on your system. DirectX upgrades normally arrive in NT service Packs.

Also, with Compaqs, the hardware is very proprietry, which means that your OS is a Compaq tweaked version of Win2K. This means that some sound and graphic cards either do not work, or might have diminished compatibility. This is why I prefer Dell. it has none of this proprietry nonsense.

Cheers
