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

Could not find any compatible Direct 3D devices


You don't have the correct video card to support the game. Always check game system requirements. gl

I cant play 3d games


Try earlier versions of 3D games.
Your computer is a somewhat older model. So try playing 3D games released around 2000-2002.
Try NFS 6 or lower, GTA version 2, IGI 1 & 2 etc.
If even they don't work, try replacing the VGA card with a compatible but better VGA card (Cards from nVidia might be a good option).

I made the setup of the game i downloded and when i tried to work it gave me the messags about can't intialize renderer.cause d3derrr_not available


That means your video card is inadequate for the game. D3D is Direct 3D and if you're getting that message it's because your card isn't compatible with Direct 3D part of DirectX. You'll need to upgrade your card in order to play the game and make sure that it meets the recommended (NOT minimum) requirements for the game.

3d games are not working hp brio ba600


With those computer specs you are going to be limmitted to older or less resource consuming games. You might try turning all the video settings to minimum in the game options, and to turn off everything you dont need in windows itself , while you are playing.
But the bad news is you dont have cpu, video, or memory enough to play most of todays highend 3d games..

Problem playing a computer game I bought


what game is it? sometimes your graphics hardware can stop games from working if you haven't got the right hardware. or sometimes it can be as simple as not having the right version of direct x installed on your computer. Check the requirements for the game on the back of the disk case then check that you have all of the recommendations that it asks for e.g. graphics card, direct x, harddrive space, 3d accelaration etc..

check your virtual memory. it may not be allocating enough space on your hard drive to properly run. also there's a screen for software compatibility. programs that used to run flawlessly on win 98 may not run on windows xp or vista.
