It won't be the Direct X. You should be running no less than Direct X 9.c for XP, and 10 for Vista. The reason will be your graphic's chipset isn't really good enough for the game that you're trying to run.

One thing to do, is to download the most current drivers for your system, which can be found on the support and download page of the Sony website. If you look on the back of the box on almost all games, they come with a little note along the lines of "while laptop or intergrated chipset versions of the above may work, they are not supported". Unfortunately if updating the drivers doesn't help, then the only solution is to play it on an up to date desktop system.

Sony VAIO VGN-NS230E vga


Look and see if it appears as a monitor in your display settings, if it doesn't, then another good first step would be to update your video card drivers (go to this page and select "Video" then download " Intel Graphics Driver"). If none of this fixes it try the VGA cable with a different PC and see if it works.

Hook a spare monitor to the video output usually on the back of the laptop, if picture okay! the LCD panel on the laptop is faulty and must be replaced. If both show the same system it is the Video Graphic Card that is defective and usually built into the motherboard.

Sony Vaio Auto Shutdown... as if there was a power shortage


when your laptop begins to boot hit F8 to see if you can repair it. You may also have a virus on it that may have infected the boot sequence at start up or shutdown
