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.

When some game plays then the computer do not play and says that can not direct 3d device 9 error.


Hi,

It is possible that your computer cannot carry the graphics required to play some games. Especially that you mention about Direct 3D.

Try to read the system requirements of the game before you install it and check it with the specifications of your computer if it can carry.

Hope it helps!

Thanks!

Hi!

Microsoft DirectX is a software for handling multimedia task, video and game programing. You can download DirectX compatible for the operating system that you use in your laptop.
here are the list, select the file suited for your operating system, click it and save to start downloading, once finished, install it on your computer.

1. DirectX10 - windows vista sp1 & sp2

2. DirectX 9.0c - windows xp sp2

After installing the right directX for your operating system, try to play the game and direct 3d settings will work..

Please rate if this solution work...thanks..
