Re: why?

Go to your contol pannel and run the diagnostics direct x, it will also tell you what version you have installed on your computer, I personaly don't like playing games on my PC it changes to many things i.e. graphics settings, winsock (tcpip) and so, thats what I have an XBOX for...

Why "OpenGL/Direct3D" Problem ?

This isn't a solution as of yet but if you have updated everything and it runs fine for 14/17 minutes it could be that the card is overheating. I have run into this several times with gamers. The load on the card causes it to heat up more when playing games. Check and make sure all vents and the fan are clean for one. Over time they will clog and not cool your CPU and Video Card.
In other cases the video card is just not up to it. It will play for a time, overheat and then distort or stop working at all. Is that card adequate for the games you play?
One gaming laptop I worked on overheated and soon the graphics card would not work at all. Had to replace the motherboard.
First make sure it's not overheating, Second,check compatibility of your hardware to your game. Third, double check your drivers, completely uninstall then reinstall.
Hope this helps.
Good Luck

I cant play fifa 09 on my acer aspire one 522, is it with the resolution? how can I fix this?

Your processor is the problem : It's a dual core 1GHz AMD C-Series processor C-50 and even though it might barely be able to run the game, the game was made before the processor type was released, and thus the game doesn't know what the heck it is and only sees that its a 1GHz CPU and thus considers it to slow to run the game.

Here are the system requirements:
Operating Systems: Windows XP SP2 / Windows Vista - CPU: 2.4 GHz
- RAM: 512 Megabytes of RAM (1 GB required for Windows Vista)
- DirectX 9.0c Compatible 3D accelerated 128 MB video card or equivalent (must support Shader Model 2.0 or above)
- DirectX 9.0c Compatible Sound Card
512kbit/s or greater broadband connection for online gameplay
- 6.1 GB free hard disk space for DVD format and additional space required for DirectX 9.0c installation
- 8x or faster DVD-ROM drive

Regarding on my video card ... i cannot play 3d games ... kindly help me plz ...

Hi, welcome to FixYa.

Have you tried installing display driver for your laptop? Try to install your latest display driver first before playing any games. After that, install DirectX to make sure you have latest engine to play.

I unable to play a game because VGA compatible device not found in my computer & i want to install this. How can i install this explain it? & i am using XP

VGA compatible device not found represents that either your bios couldnt recognize the VGA hardware or your OS pnp service couldnt initialize the Hardware for VGA. Either these cases, we should look for the level of Hardware detection at which it fails. If its an onboard VGA device, you may need to replace it with an addon VGA card based on the Mother Board compatibility and then try install it again. This should solve the issue.

Good Luck.

I have an acer travelmate 2440 and it wont play sims 2 at all, it just gives me an error message about direcy x and ive already installed drivers and driver updates i dont know what to do!!!

Direct X is a miccrosoft video 'layer' it helps to generate video and sound. If you don;t have it installed then games or other programs that need it will not start or error out.

This ia free download from Microsoft. If you go to then in the search type directx download and in the results you are lookig for a title called DirectX End User Runtime Web Installer

Click on the download button and save or run it.
That will download and install directx . Once it is done then reboot and try your game.

Usually most games will check and see if you need directx and try to install it but some don't.

And I have no idea why everything is being typed in bold ;-]

I cant play romance three kingdom with my acer aspire one 8'9 " w/ intel atom inside, it always said cant find directx.. why? in case.. i allready download directx 9.0c and install it but it doesnt work

What it means is the "Hardware DirectX" your hardware, the Video Card is NOT DirectX 10. This is the level of hardware required to play a game such as that, that PC's, Video is not compatible with it.

Graphics adapter its hardware device rather then software. You check whether all driver installed for you video card and DirectX9.0 installed too. It might that you poses old video on board card which doesnt support directX 9

Direct3D in my computer isn't avaiable !!

If your video card does support directx 9, as asked in the clarification request by bobbyspencer, you probably need to update your video drivers to ensure the directx 9 compatibility.

If it does not work, you can try reinstalling directx9 on your PC. If updating does not work, try to uninstall directx first and then update.
