Dose e3400 supprot directx 11?

No it does not. However, it does support DirectX 10, and almost any game or other graphics program will run fine on DirectX 10, but won't display the extra graphics effects of DirectX 11.

It has DINPUT.dll error

Dinput.dll errors usually appear when a game or other software program is started. and are caused in one way or another by an issue with Microsoft DirectX.

The dinput.dll file is one of many files contained in the DirectX software collection. Since DirectX is utilized by most Windows based games and advanced graphics programs, dinput.dll errors usually show up only when using these programs.


1. For Dinput.dll not found. Reinstalling Direct X should fix this.

2. Install the latest version of Microsoft DirectX. Chances are, upgrading to the latest version of DirectX will fix the dinput.dll not found error.

Note: Microsoft often releases updates to DirectX without updating the version number or letter so be sure to install the latest release even if your version is technically the same.

Note: The latest version of DirectX should be installed no matter if you're running Windows 7, Windows Vista, or Windows XP. The installation may include DirectX 11, DirectX 10, and DirectX 9 files, but they run side-by-side without problem on all of these operating systems.

3. Assuming the latest DirectX version from Microsoft doesn't fix the dinput.dll error you're receiving, look for a DirectX installation program on your game or application CD or DVD. Usually, if a game or other program utilizes DirectX, the software developers will include a copy of DirectX on the installation disc.

Sometimes, though not often, the DirectX version included on the disc is a better fit for the program than the latest version available online.

Uninstall the game or software program and then reinstall it again. Something might have happened to the program files that work with dinput.dll and a reinstall could do the trick.

Restore the dinput.dll file from the latest DirectX software package. If the above troubleshooting steps haven't worked to solve your dinput.dll error, try extracting the dinput.dll individually from the DirectX downloadable package.

4. Update the drivers for your video card. While it's not the most common solution, in some situations updating the drivers for the video card in your computer could correct this DirectX issue.

Here is a good link for DirectX info on how to download and install:

I cant download directx 8.1 what should i do???

DirectX is freeware. You can do a Google search using "directx 8.1".

Have you tried one of the following sites?:

DirectX 8.1 is for Windows 98/Me. It is the highest release of DirectX that will run on Windows 98 or Windows Me (later versions such as DirectX 9 will NOT run on these versions of Windows). Windows 2000/XP/Vista users should get the later release though.
Best of luck to you, from 11407336.

Usually directx is disabled in an individual program or game rather then accross the whole card, and enabling will depend upon said program (game) - however you can test directx on the card by clicking start/run and typing DXDIAG - this will run through a series of tests to confirm the DirectX is working, and also tell you version numbers etc.
