You can got to start>run> type in the box "dxdiag". This runs the directx diagnostic tool. Towards the bottom of this window it will display a version number the latest being 9.0C. If your version is not current you can update directx thru windows updates or you can download it from http://www.softwarepatch.com/windows/directx.html

If your version is current I would suggest updating your graphics card driver.

hope this helps

When trying to play a PC game I get a pop up that says 'Failed creating Direct 3D Device"


Make sure all your devices have updated drivers. To do this, right click on "My Computer" and select "properties" Select "Device Managers" Find your video components and click the button that say "update driver" Then make sure your other software, such as DirectX, is up to date.

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!

I've loadded the game on my pc windows 2000 pro it will not play on my pc its says i need directx5.1 or higher but i have direct x 9


This is a problem in newer machines. The hardware we have these days is actually too powerful to play some of the older games.

Try running it in compatibility modes. If this does not work. Set up a Virtual Machine with the recommended system requirements the game states and that should solve your problem.

Having trouble playing game


You might need to update you version of DirectX by going to the microsoft site, or make sure that the 3D accelleration is enable in DXDIAG.
If using XP go to Start>Run (on the right hand side) and type in dxdiag then press enter. When the program opens click on the display tab and check that the 3D accellarator is enabled. Also carry out the tests within the display tab to make sure that there are no other errors. Check the game for the version of DX that it need against the version that you have, your version will be displayed when the dxdiag program opens. I hope this helps
