    Can anyone help me with this? I already re-installed DirectX, I'm not sure if Direct3D is even there now (It was before we had it "Fixed"), I says I should make sure that the driver is the final version x.x... I'm lost. Does anyone know where I can update this version, or if my vido card is just dead -.-? (Er..I would post what type, but I think the ss shows it)[​IMG]

    What is your video card and did you get a driver for it or a disk with the PC with any drivers on it.?

    The type of video being used is right there in plain view in the first post.

    He's using onboard intel graphics. This will be a problem with trying to run any recent games, much less the older ones.

    You need a graphics card if you want to play at an acceptable level. If you do by chance get a game to work it will likely be like watching a slideshow.

    It's funny how the games worked before we took it to the computer shop, I haven't tried them after we took them..but do you think he may of took my video card, and replaced it?

    Thanks for the help guys, I guess I'll just wait until I buy my new labtop :p (Unless anyone knows of a cheap video card)

    Recently I posted about not being able to play games, and I was told my video card was not good enough to play them. But, I'm wondering what happened, A month ago I could play them perfectly, I haven't changed my video card or had any work done on my computer, and now I don't have Direct3D (I have the newest version of Directx), Can anyone give hints on what I can do to fix this?

    Try posting your direct 3D problem in appropriate OS forum. Click on triangle at top of post and request a mod to move it there for you.
