As soo as I switch on the coputer, the message "Failed to find proc address D3DPERF_Se.Options(d3d9.dll) appears


Meh, it's just a Direct3D file gone corrupted. Soft errors happen. Just reinstall Direct3D from Microsoft or restore those DLLs from a live backup.

Even so, does it give you that every time you try to boot? Graphics drivers are usually a ways down the chain....

No hardware-accelerated Direct3D devices were found swithiching to the reference rasterizer a software device that implements the entire direct3D feature set but runs very slowly.


more info please
But basically your machine is not detected a 3D video card.
It could be that a proper video driver has not been installed (Windows is using a default) so this maybe cured by simply downloading the driver for your machines GPU.

This machine might be using integrated "onboard" graphics, in which case don't expect very good performance especially with any recent game.

What is directX9 capable graphics card we have directX9 installed is that it my son needs this to play his new football manager pc game


Microsoft DirectX is a collection of application programming interfaces (APIs) for handling tasks related to multimedia, especially game programming and video, on Microsoft platforms. Originally, the names of these APIs all began with Direct, such as Direct3D, DirectDraw, DirectMusic, DirectPlay, DirectSound, and so forth. The name DirectX was coined as shorthand term for all of these APIs (the X standing in for the particular API names) and soon became the name of the collection. Direct3D (the 3D graphics API within DirectX) is widely used in the development of video games for Microsoft Windows, Microsoft Xbox, and Microsoft Xbox 360. Direct3D is also used by other software applications for visualization and graphics tasks such as CAD/CAM engineering. As Direct3D is the most widely publicized component of DirectX, it is common to see the names "DirectX" and "Direct3D" used interchangeably.
The DirectX software development kit (SDK) consists of runtime libraries in redistributable binary form, along with accompanying documentation and headers for use in coding.
The latest versions of Direct3D, namely, Direct3D 10 and Direct3D 9Ex, are only officially available for Windows Vista and Windows 7, because each of these new versions was built to depend upon the new Windows Display Driver Model that was introduced for Windows Vista. The new Vista/WDDM graphics architecture includes a new video memory manager that supports virtualizing graphics hardware to multiple applications and services such as the Desktop Window Manager...............sodeep

Direct 3D Driver Installation Or Reinstallation?


The HAL error is because you haven't installed your grafikcard so windows is using a defaultdriver. You need to download the drivers for your videocard.

I can't say what card you have, for that you have to read the productpaper that came with the computer or open the pc and check the card.

Most graficcards have either nVidia or ATI chips. Intel is the brand on your CPU (and some other stuff) but they dont do their own graficcards.

My advice:
¤ Check the manual/documentary of the computer and look for the type of card you have for your grafics.
¤ If you can't find it in any documentation. Open the computercase and check the cards for any card with a logo from either nVidia or ATI.
¤ When you find the correct card. Check for the name of the card. (could be ATI HD5670, or anything like that)

When you have all info on what card you have. Go to either nVIdia or ATI driverpage and select your card and download/install the driver.

Restart computer hand it should be fine.


Btw. at http://free.grisoft.com you can download a free version of AVG Antivirus. So you don't need to worry about staying connected.

Cheers and hope this will help.

I have a Toshiba Satellite notebook with Vista Home and NAV 360 and recently purchased a Sierra Wireless Mobile Broadband USB modem T-Stick D597. When I try to install the T-Stick, I keep getting an error...


You might want to disable the WiFi that is built into your laptop before installing that device. It is very possible that the built in WiFi is conflicting with that Wireless Broadband Device.
