Try to install DirectX from the Microsoft website. If it still says this error, then the computer doesn't support Direct3D. ( http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/resultsForProduct.aspx?displaylang=en&productID=9C954C37-1ED1-4846-8A7D-85FC422D1388)

Simply click start right click on my computer select properties then select device manager scroll to Display Adapters and click on the small "+" you should see the model of your PCI Express graphic card there. If there is a problem with it, a yellow exclamation mark should appear besides it. If you don't see it everything is OK and your card is working properly. im not sure what the eror might be

It keeps saying when i try to play one of my games: Initialization Error: Direct3D renderer creation error: Creation failed:


Hello,

The first thing you should do is check on the installation CD/DVD game on for any readme.txt or
troubleshooting.txt files.

The readme.txt file should list the graphics cards that the game is compatible with. Make sure that your graphics card is compatible with the game.

Also the same file may tell you which version of DirectX the game requires.

Make sure you have the version of DirectX required installed. Most games have the DirectX libraries needed in a folder on the game's installation CD/DVD.

Also there is a program in C:\Windows\System32 called dxdiag.exe you can run this to diagnose your DirectX setup and your machine.

Hope this helps.

When I try to play Wizard101 it says something like Direct3d creation renderer failed to initialize. How can I fix this?


Update your Flash to the latest version: http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/
If you're on Google Chrome, update your browser using Wrench > About Google Chrome
If this doesn't fix it, you should try updating your graphics card driver.

I got a remote controll helicopter and when I installed the software for the Flying Model Simulator, it brings up an error saying that D3DRM.DLL IS NOT LOADED.. What can I do to run this program so I can...


The D3DRM.DLL file is the Dynamic Link Library for Direct3D Retained Mode, an older DirectX display technology that was not included with Windows Vista. Direct3D is used to render three dimensional images in applications where performance is important; the most common examples of which are games, CAD drawing programs and graphics editing software.
The error message displayed varies by program, but some some of the more common ones are:
  • "Failed to initialize Direct3D with current settings"
  • "Cannot find the file d3drm.dll"
  • "This application has failed to start because d3drm.dll was not found"
  • "D3DRM.dll is not loaded"
This error is usually a sign that the d3drm.dll file has been deleted, corrupted or altered in such a way that makes it unusable to your program.
To fix errors like this:
1. Install the latest version of Microsoft DirectX. It will fix the d3drm.dll error.
2. Uninstall the game or software program and then reinstall it again.
3. Update the drivers for your video card.
4. If it doesn,t work copy d3drm.dll file to the system folder.
Hope it helps.
