    i have direct x 9c installed, i built my computer and ive played 64 bit games like half life 2, my graphics card is evga 8600 gts, the problem is the game thinks i have server 2003 installed.

  • Eric Jones Dec 07, 2008

    i fixed half the problem i set the compatibility mode to xp and that part worked but it still says i need directx 9.0c and ive installed it 50 times and restarted, it even says i have it installed in the system info, is it possible for an older directx to still be installed if so how do you get rid of it?

  • Eric Jones Dec 07, 2008

    well i installed the latest driver for my video card, ran all these 32 bit tests, all came out fine and i know for a fact i have 9.0c so its probably because i have xp 64 bit, theres another game i cant play

    i can almost never play any older games because 64 bit xp doesnt like them, so if you have old games you like to play dont get xp 64 bit, its not worth all the trouble

Dear sir
you can install directx 9c from www.downlod.com
after that you can run NFS from you system.
need no worry.
i think your system is not suitable for windows 64 bit. its not at all a porblem.
when ever you installed winxp 64 bit in your system automatilically it will install 32 bit graphics memory card.
dont worry about that.
first of all please install driectx from www. download.com ( its free).


with regards
murali

Hello there,
Here is *********** boards VGA details.
Integrated Intel GMA X4500 graphics Maximum shared memory of 1GB
Supports RGB with max. resolution 2048 x 1536 (@75Hz)
Supports Microsoft® DirectX® 10
Here are the system requirements of the games you are currently playing with problem.
NFS Most Wanted- It should run with no problems just avoid high detail settings.
Minimum: 32MB or more, ATI 7500 or greater; ATI Radeon Xpress 200; NVIDIA GeForce2 MX/GTS or greater Recomended: NVidia 5900 or ATi 9800 with 256mb of video memory
Prince of Persia Two Thrones
Minimum: 64MB Recomended: better than recommended in NFS Most Wanted
COD Black Ops
Minimum: Shader 3.0, 256MB GeForce 8600GT/ ATI X1950 Pro or better. Recommended Nvidia: GT 240 or higher Recommends Ati: HD 4670 512MB or higher Minimum Memory: 2GB
Some games have hardware validation test if your unit fails to the requirements you cannot install the game. try to download this BurnIn. Select the 32bit Standard edition. install the utility and stress your x4500 graphics. Sir you did not post your Processor and Memory. The x4500 graphics will use 128MB of your ram, If you are using 1GB or 1024MB - 128MB = 896MB. 2GB or 2048MB - 128MB = 1920MB. For Memory system requirements your system failed and the main problem is your video card.
Hopefully this helps.
Thank you for using FixYa.

My nvidia 512 9500gt vga card does not support nfs most wanted.there is aerror message to get the direcx 09 or higher where i have already got direct x9


Update your DirectX to the latest(DirectX End-User Runtimes (June 2010) @ Microsoft Site.

Update your Graphic Card drivers to the latest @ nVidia Site.

If your game does not run after these updates, you should get a better graphic card.

Hope it helps.

Abt directx & NFS Carbon....


To find out what version of directx you have installed, go to your Start menu at the bottom left of the desktop, select Run, then type in dxdiag. Answer yes to the prompt, then you will be presented with your directx info.

DirectX 10 is not available for Windows XP, so 9 will have to do.

There are several problems that could be causing your game to crash. Incompatible video card, not enough ram, or a bad installation. Make sure your PC meets all the minimum requirements for the game, then try to uninstall and reinstall the game. If this is still an issue afterwards, either post back here for some more suggestions, or email the game publisher's support contact for assistance.

Hope this helps!!
