    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.

    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

Reinstall hp webcam 101


Click start control panel view devices and printers you should see your webcam from there if you are have trouble with your webcam Click start control panel administrative tools computer management device manager scroll down image devices you could see a yellow question mark? right click to reinstall drivers or update driver xp Click start right click on computer select properties device manager scroll to image devices expand right click to update driver in W7 http://download.cnet.com/2000-20_4.html on the home page you should see a search tab just type in what you are looking for IE: webcam name webcam driver you might have to try a few times to get it right software if you dont have the driver you will need to download one here rather doing a driver hunt which can take hours http://download.cnet.com/slimdrivers-free/3000-18513_4-75279940.html Windows XP/Vista/7/8 It might take some time being a freeware driver solution note: it will find all of your outdated drivers this is a free driver solutions This will automatically search for and find the correct driver you will have to update every driver individually once you update you might be asked whether you want to restart or make a system restore point click no to both of these then continue updating each driver free then restart once all of the drivers have been updated Some webcams and programs require additional software, although that should be installed with the webcam if things are right. But is does not harm to check if your Java, Flash and Quicktime software are installed and up to date. But certainly check your DirectX software, since all video applications, including webcams, use DirectX for video processing. Try downloading the latest DirectX version and install it (Windows XP: DirectX 9.0c - Windows Vista: DirectX 10). http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/Which-version-of-DirectX-is-on-your-computer Hope this helps.

What is causing igi starting error?


There are so many reasons why the fatal exception error has occurred. First, your video card maybe has below specs and need to upgrade. Second, maybe you didn't install a direct x in your computer that's why games didn't run successfully. Last, some files are corrupt so the game will not run properly. Solutions:
First, upgrade your video card to a higher spec.
Second, try to install a direct x in your computer. This is the link to download DirectX
Third, try to uninstall the game and reinstall it again.

Usually this is a DirectX problem. Download and install the latest version of DirectX.
If this doesn't help it means that your video card doesn't support the game you want to run.

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!!
