Hello customer,

Updating video card drivers can solve most gaming issues. Here's some
simple abc's to always keep in mind. a. Shut off download accelerators,
firewalls and antivirus programs when downloading or installing updates;
b. Check for game patches: www.avault.com/pcrl/patches_list.asp?letter=a
c. Make sure you meet the game's minimum video and system requirements.

Before you update your drivers, I recommend that you update DirectX
from: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/directx/default.aspx

Here are the steps I recommend you use to update your driver:

1. To identify the make and model of your card, right click your
Desktop, choose Properties / Settings / Advanced / Adapter.

2. Download the latest video driver for your card online, using
http://mvps.org/nibblesnbits/Video.html#drivers
to find the website to download from. I also have advanced
video driver and direct X troubleshooting steps on that page.

3. Save the .exe driver (or extract the zip file) to a folder
in My Documents named after the driver version number.

4. Restart the computer in Safe Mode by pressing the F8 key
about once every second as it's rebooting to pick Safe Mode.

5. Click Start / (settings) Control Panel / System / Hardware
Device Manager / expand +Display Adapters / right click on
the adapter, pick "Uninstall", and click No if asked to reboot.

6. Use Control Panel / Add-Remove programs to uninstall the
previous driver (exe)software which may have been installed.

7. Restart the computer in Safe Mode by pressing the F8 key
about once every second as it's rebooting to pick Safe Mode.

8. If the driver is NOT a (.exe)program file, GO TO step 11.

9. When Windows prompts you to install the video adapter, click
"Cancel" and Double click the driver program to begin installation.
* Even if not prompted, doubleclick the driver and install it.

10. After you reboot, go to Control Panel / Display / Settings and
choose 32 bit Color Quality, and 800x600 or higher Resolution.
That's it! Scroll down to the Troubleshooter if you have problems.

11. When Windows prompts you to install the video adapter, click
"Install from a list or specific location", click the "Browse" button,
browse to the My documents folder where you saved the driver,
and finally click on one of the driver files to begin installation.

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 just bought a used laptop and i installed two games on it Stronghold 2 and Prison Tycoon. Neither will run on my computer. When i try to run Prison Tycoon, it says Direct3d renderer creation error and...


It could just be that the graphics set in your PC is just not capable of producing the resolutions/operations required for the game as they are set or you maybe need an updated graphics driver. Try reducing the resolution settings in the game(s) if you can. Also make sure that the resoulution screen setting is correct for the size of screen and that you dont have any strange modes set up like trying to output to 2 screens etc.
