DirectDraw and Direct3d Acceleration Problem

Trying to play halo: combat evolved trial, and it says that there's a problem with the DirectDraw Accleratiom. So, I went to DXDIAG and Display but the DirectDraw/Direct3D/AGP texture said "Not Available" and they wouldnt work. I checked the desk.cpl>Setting>Troubleshoot and my Accleration was already at full...anyone know how to fix it???

Thanks in advance!

This problem happened to me when I was installing halo pc. Its not fixable so what I recomend is that you take all of your files, pics, ect. and put them on a hard drive or flash drive and start over on your computer. I had to do that because the direct x 9 got corupted and I was not able to fix it. Now that I completely formated my computer, I am able to play halo and halo 2.

How to download direct3d device

I don't know you exact problem, you didn't give much information but I'm assuming you can't something to work that requires direct3d.
First try this,
Right-click on your desktop and select:
Properties > Settings > Advanced > Troubleshoot
and move the Hardware Acceleration slider to "Full",
then click "Apply".
really, that's all I got.
But I did manage to find you a page with legit looking download links for specific OSes

Got problem with agp everytime i run lineage 2 .....the game may not be consistant beacause AGP is deactivated..Please activate agp for consistancy...ive already check directX and download the latest...

Hello, I think you must need to make use of the DirectX Diagnostics and then you can simply turn on your DirectX if it is turned off. For that you need to follow the steps below:
  • Click on the Start.
  • Then click on the Run.
  • Then type the command as "dxdiag" without quotes and press enter.
  • When then progress bar disappears click on the Display tab.
  • Then simply enable the DirectDraw, Direct3D and AGP texturing.
  • Done.

The only time you could run a downloaded version of a current game is if it's a demo version. Most games require that you have the cd or dvd in the drive to play the game.

I can't play video on my PC it gives d3derr_not available Error

It means that the host hardware does not support the functionality you are requesting from Direct3D. In other words, you Graphics Card doesn't support what ever your trying to do like playing video games!

Get a better Graphic card.

I think ya need to enable DirectX So, to enable DirectX, you must first enable graphics acceleration. To do so follow the next steps: 1. Right click on the desktop and go to Properties, Settings, Advanced, Troubleshooting. 2. Set the Hardware acceleration bar to Full. 3. Click Ok all the way out. To activate Direct3D and DirectDraw (DirectX) follow the next steps: 1. Go to Start/Run and type "dxdiag". 2. Click OK. 3. Click on the Display tab, then click on the Enable button for DirectDraw and Direct3d. 4. Click Ok all the way out.
