First, check which Direct X version that you have currently installed to make sure that is the problem:

* Go to the Windows START Menu
* Select RUN
* Type dxdiag and click OK.

If you don't have the updated Direct X required, you will have to download.

it means the graphics card in your computer is old and not capable of playing the game. You need a new graphics card to play the game (and more than likely a new computer)

Exactly!! Either that or i believe that you dont have any external graphics card and i think you are using the default one that must have come with your motherboard.


BTW which game is it that you have installed and trying to play:p
