Hi, Red.
What you need to do is go to the microsoft website, and download the newest directx for your operating system.

If it's windows xp, then you need directx 9, vista uses directx 10 and windows 7 utilizes the directx 11 software.

Also, you will need the latest drivers for your video and sound cards.

Most likely, it is the video drivers that are causing the problem, as d3d needs the most recent to set the device up properly and so that it will work as it is supposed to.

Hopefully, when all the software is topped off, your programs should work properly!

Good luck to you, and have a good day!

If my tip helps you out, please feel free to give me a 4 thumbs up rating. These are what keep my status up as an expert.

Thanks !

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.

Hi!

Microsoft DirectX is a software for handling multimedia task, video and game programing. You can download DirectX compatible for the operating system that you use in your laptop.
here are the list, select the file suited for your operating system, click it and save to start downloading, once finished, install it on your computer.

1. DirectX10 - windows vista sp1 & sp2

2. DirectX 9.0c - windows xp sp2

After installing the right directX for your operating system, try to play the game and direct 3d settings will work..

Please rate if this solution work...thanks..
