Nancy Drew game won't play - incorrect drivers??

Hi,
I've been trying to play my Nancy Drew games and none of them seem to work. As far as i can tell my pc meets all the requirements and everything, and i have the latest DirectX, but then when i try to play the game I get the following message everytime:
"InitDirectDraw0, pSPrimary CreateSurface0 - Unable to create an DirectDraw Surface. Game shutting down - DDERR_NODIRECTDRAWHW - A hardware only DirectDraw object creation was attempted but the driver did not support any hardware."

I have no idea what this means! Help? Thanks!

SOURCE: Nancy Drew game white wolf -video flashes by so text not readable

it could be that the video card is not powerful enough or that you need to update the version of direct x that you have. Check your version of direct x by going to start, run (on the right hand side) and type in dxdiag and press enter, the first screen that will be displayed will have your version of direct x. If it is not as high as 9c then I suggest that you download direct x 9c from microsofts website or run a search in google for it. Download it and this will update your directx. Secondly when you are in the dxdiag program check under the display tab and make sure that 3d features are enabled. If they are not or you do not have this option (because it is greyed out), then you may need to upgrade your graphics card.

I hope this helps

Is there a setting under options to change what you can view regarding text? Some programs have it and some don't.

SOURCE: Hi, The game, Nancy Drew: Danger

The first thing you should try, is to update both JAVA and Flash. If it uses those, that is likely the issue.

Here are the links:
http://www.java.com/en/download/inc/windows_upgrade_xpi.jsp

http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/

Be sure to uncheck the boxes that install toolbars. Also, it wouldn't hurt to make sure that Windows is up to date. Click the Start button, click All Programs, and then click Windows Update.

You can get a free installation of direct X off the program in most Nancy Drew games, but if that does not work you can get a free direct x install off the internet.

if you desperately want to play nancy drews that have that problem, there is a way but this way youl have no sound but the game will still play.
Go into the directory where you installed the game and then o into the game.ini file. it should open in a notepad.
go to sound system is active=1.
change the 1 into a 0. then enjoy. the game may have no sound but its still the game ayyy
nd dont try and change the volume or else the game shut down.
