That is alread supposed to be in your system and probably it's just been disabled. so you need to enable it
Start>Run
type in " dxdiag" withou qeotes
once pane displayed then
choose Display tab
and enable your Direct draw one.
if you see nothing there then you need to download Graphic driver for your graphic card manufacturer website.
thanks

What will i do if my PC won't start up normally. It just asking to boot


Your Operating System (OS) is corrupted. You need to perform a system repair using your OS installation CD.
If this does not solve the problem, you will have to reinstall your OS.
How ever, OS installation will delete all your data in the system partition (the partition where your OS is installed).

Hi im bright and my problem is am using the vista pack 1.1 and i can't play games like road rash and the rest on my PC


It appears that you are trying to run older games. these may or may not work, but your best chance is to run and install them in compatibility mode.

Right-Click the Shortcut
Select Properties
Select Compatibility Tab
Select Radio Button for "Run this program in compatibility mode for:"
Select the Operating System for which this game was designed

If this does not work, you could go to the extreme of installing Microsoft Virtual machine, and install Windows 98 'virtually' withing that see http://www.microsoft.com/windows/products/winfamily/virtualpc/default.mspx

Hope this helps

Cannot install Windows XP,Vista on Compaq Laptop(FreeDos) V3607TU.


I have two solutions for this problem. the first one is to change the bios settings. the solution is here:  http://techrena.blogspot.com/2008/10/how-to-install-your-own-wndows-xp-in-hp.html
but for some laptops this setting is not available. so you can try another solution i.e. integrate the SATA drivers in your windows XP cd. this solution is here: http://techrena.blogspot.com/2009/01/integrate-your-own-drivers-or.html

Drivers


Hi

If you are using Win XP or Win Vista 32-bit Any edition, it will not ask you for any drivers as it will install the generic usb drivers once you connect the device.
If you are using Vista 64-bit any edition, the you have to get the drivers for Vista 64-bit OS from the manufacturer website.
