Problem with DirectX

866 Views 4 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  TonyKlein
I'm a newbie, bear with me. I had borrowed a new game and downloaded the files from the game to play it. After the downloading was complete, I hit play and I was notified that my there was an error with DirectX. I found out that my version of DX was way behind, so I upgraded it from the Internet. My game is reading that DX doesn't exist .

Any information as to how to fix the problem would be greatly appreciated.

Welcome to TSG........
Im wondering if you uninstall the game then reinstall it would it detect the DirextX then?

Im not sure but I'd try it.

Savvy :)
Hi the1stew,

Welcome to the board!

Go to Start/run, and type Dxdiag.
What version of DirectX does it say it is?
Also take a look at all tabs, and see whether any errors are reported.
If all is OK, go to Control Pane/Software add-remove, and uninstall your game.
Reboot, and install it again.

Good luck!
Under DirectX files, there was a yellow triangle with an exclamation mark inside ( it was sitting next to a entry "".

In the Corrections box, it says that this file is a beta version which is unsupported and could cause problems. Reinstall DirectX latest version.

I did this, same problem occurring.
But if you do Dxdiag now, are any errors being reported on any of the tabs?

If not, it might be your game misbehaving.
