I take it this is an online game. I know this is scarey, but you might want to change your search engine from Microsoft's IE to something more stable. I've heard nothing but negative about IE. Try Firefox, look it up and find a free download. I know you'll be pleased.

I can not play game in my laptop.when i open the game it says can not connect to d3d device.check directx.what will i do?


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..

Hello.. i was using windows 7 for a while and decided to go to xp because of gaming...though windows 7 has directx 11 but i think games perform better in xp..my cd/dvd rom does not support cd's so have to...


Did you create a drive image prior to the install ?

If so go back and run the Games from Windows 7 in XP Compatibility mode.

If not use Symantec Partition Magic to create two partitions and operate a dual boot system where you use Windows 7 for most things like the internet and Windows XP for games I also suggest that you use GameXP to optimize XP for Gaming

If all else false un-install it and re-install it. let me know if these help you.

When i start Axis and Allies the screen flashes for about 15 seconds and then an error screen comes up that says that "the game tried to turn the resolution to 1024/768 but couldn't so it changed it back...


When I try to play Axis and Allies cd-rom '98 it's like the screen is too small for the game because there is no buttons or anything that allows me to end my turn. My monitor is pretty big too.

Alow file to download and let the app check your system for you.

i have read that this game has compatability issues with laptop chipsets, are you lap or desktop?
