Dx9 isn't a sound card driver, but a protocol for them, you need to know the chipset name of your sound card and download the right drivers, or, the name of the model of your desktop/laptop in order to download the drivers on manufacturer'site

    So if you provide me manufacturer of your sound car, or model of the computer. (if the sound card is the one provided with.) I'll locate for you the drivers package and give you the link to.

Video card or driver doesn't support the required fixed-function texture blend operations. DirectX 7 rendering path will not be available. Video card or driver doesn't support direction lights in...

Hello, the problem seem to be related to the video card you're currently using, See if you have an integrated video card: a hint to find out is to see behind your computer if the monitor connection is on a side of the back panel is probable you have an incompatible integrated video system, you can solve this problem by buying and installing a compatible video card as any Nvidia or ATI card, Call an IT professional and ask for some advice on what card you should buy and install to make these problems disappear, also ask him/her to install it for you.

Have a nice day, and If you have any other questions you can come back and reply.

PD: If you still want to buy and install it yourself ask me again and I'll help you.

How to initialize directx 9 renderer

1. Just install the latest directX 9 @ DirectX 9.0c (Jun 10) download

2. Update your Graphic Cards drivers from the Manufacturers' site.

3. Update your PC/Laptop hardware drivers to the latest versions!

If you have done the above and still cannot cannot use the directx 9 rendering, most probably your graphic card does not support the rendering options.

Hope it helps.

I don have aduio in my dell computer directsound output v2.46. were can i download a driver to fix my problem

It is my understanding that DirectSound drivers are part of DirectX drivers available from Microsoft.

You may have to update DirectX drivers to fix this

shows how to download and install.
Cannot provide any more suggestions as you have not provided the details of your Dell computer, ie, model no etc to know what audio / sound card it has.

You can also go to the Dell support site for download of specific drivers after you select the model of your computer

Too slow

the only way to improve graphics is to upgrade your graphics card and ensure that you have enough system memory and proccesor power to run the game as it should do. If you have a 32MB or 64MB card then maybe you should go for atleast 128MB
