i have played pandora's box on my computer for a couple of years but now it is telling me "unable to create Direct Draw surface. Make sure directx is installed and then try again." Well I have directx installed, updated directx and run troubleshooting. What is says is that the hardward accelerated driver 3d 9x display driver does not support it and that I need new driver. I have VGA driver SiS 30 (vmm32.vxd version 4.11.01.1060. What can I do to correct this problem. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Reinstall your 3d video card drivers using updated versions from the maker of your cards website

I am not very good at reinstalling anything can you tell me what to expect and how to go about this proceedure? Does the manufacturer charge for these updates,etc.

No charge for the free updates off the makers website and usually, but not always, all you have to do is double-click the download after it's done to begin it installing, but the website usually has install instructions for driver install on there too.
