The problem is with your video card, not with directx. This game needs a faster card, capable of using full 3D rendering.

You'll need to find out what kind of open slots (PCI or PCI Express) are available on your motherboard, and then start shopping for a graphics card.

I recommend spending some time on gamer websites asking other people what the best card for the money is for your PC. If you have any gamer friends, they might be able to help you as well.

Installing a graphics card is fairly easy. If you find one you like and want help installing it, you can probably find help here.

When I installed the spiderwick, it didn't have any problems. but when it finished and I wanted to run the game, it can't.
it says "Wrong disc inserted. Please insert the original "Spiderwick Spiderwick" CD/DVD. Please have a look at http://www.securom.com/message.asp?m=wrongdisc for further, more detailed information.".
i have tried with crack, but it also didn't work. so what will I do now to solve this problem??

Cant enter the game on pc


First here are the minimum requirements needed to run it:
  • Windows XP
  • Pentium III 800 or AMD Athlon 700 MHz processor or faster
  • 256 MB of RAM
  • 1.1 GB free Hard Disk space
  • 8X CD-ROM drive or faster
  • 32 MB DirectX 8.1 compatible 3D Video Card (64 MB recommended)
  • DirectX 8.1 compatible Sound Card
  • DirectX 8.1 or higher
  • 56 Kbps or better Internet connection or LAN multiplayer


My guess is you are trying to run it on vista or windows 7 though and since this game came out in 2001 it's a pretty old game and if you are trying to run it on Vista and Windows 7 you will encounter problems. Download a copy of Dosbox or Virtualbox and use it to run your games. They work very well for older games..

Downloaded Starwars StarFighter from Steam. The game wont detect my 3d card under configuration it states. No 3D Display Adapter Installed. I am runing Direct x 11 With two NVIDIA GeForce GTX 580...


I would say you are running a very advanced system for this game as the spec is directx 8. And if you are using windows 7 it may not be compatable.

You could try running it in compatabillity mode for vista or XP, if you havent already done so!?

I have just installed Spiderwick Chronicles. Upgrade Video Card?


Hello susan_eric,

Yes your card altho ok is not compatible with the game. You can try installing the latest drivers for your card and it may work but highly unlikely.

Sorry about your luck, thank you for choosing Fixya!

Having trouble playing game


You might need to update you version of DirectX by going to the microsoft site, or make sure that the 3D accelleration is enable in DXDIAG.
If using XP go to Start>Run (on the right hand side) and type in dxdiag then press enter. When the program opens click on the display tab and check that the 3D accellarator is enabled. Also carry out the tests within the display tab to make sure that there are no other errors. Check the game for the version of DX that it need against the version that you have, your version will be displayed when the dxdiag program opens. I hope this helps
