Hello, You need to install the graphics drivers for your laptop, in order for DirectX to function properly. For the Advent 4489, you can download all relevant drivers from this website.
Hope that helps to solve your problem! :-)

The best way to get the drivers that you need is from the manufacturer website. Another possible way is to download drive checker or another similar software to locate and download missing drivers automatically.

You should have received a CD ROM with drivers from Intel with your laptop. You can use it to install your graphics card drivers. Just put the CD ROM in and follow the onscreen instructions.

IT sounds like you need to replace your battery. If your laptop (notebook) is working properly while plugged in with Ac power we know it is not your power supply.

I would visit the manufacturer's website for replacement batteries. One complaint I have read about over and over on these particular systems is that the battery life is very poor.
