Hello, can anyone help...

When I start windows up it states "a3d.dll" on windows driver ca cabinet is needed. It then prompts me where to look for this file.

What is this file and how can I fix the problem? Does anyone know where I can tell it to find the file in windows?

Regards

What version of Windows is it? Usually you can stick your Windows CD in and it should find the file? Else you could run MSCONFIG and "Expand File" - point to your Windows CD, and tell it the name of the file and where you need it to go (the error message will probably tell you where?), and see if that works.
