    Default Graphic engine Direct x

    I have just rebuilt laptop with XP which came with the PC. When I try to play some games I get a message "can't start graphic engine" " ensure Directx 9 loaded and Diect3D turned on" I have downloaded latest direct x10 which should sort direct3d but still cant play game. any ideas on how to sort this?

    If your card supports DX 9, then you should download the latest update to 9 NOT 10

    Did you install the videocard drivers, and the chipset drivers?

    Yes. DirectX 10 is for Vista only.
    Intel i5-2500K 3.3GHz Quad Core, Asus P8Z 68-V LE MB, GTX 560 TI 1GB DDR5 graphics card, Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit, 8gb Corsair Vengeance DDR3 ram , Viewsonic VX2233WM LCD 1080P HD Monitor. Seagate Barracuda 1 TB 64MB Sata3 HD

    Direct link to the March 2009 DirectX 9.0c install. It's 90+MB.

    Install that & it should sort the problem out.
