Direct x Fatal error ongoing

  philtree 18:21 20 Apr 2005

I Installed some software that requires direct X
application. during the initial cd installation I was asked to update to DX 9.0c . I did this and the settings show I'm running on the latest version of DX.However when I try to open the programme i get the following fatal error ...'Unable to locate compatible graphic adapter, make sure you are running the latest version of Direct X'?? I've uninstalled/reinstalled several times but no way will it open. Anyone got any ideas please.

Go to START, RUN and key in dxdiag that should tell you whats wrong, I suspect that the graphics card you have is either not installed properly or is not fully DX9C compatible.

Should have asked, what graphics card do you have?

Thanks Bd , I've just done a test in dxdiag tools and there is a note.. 'hardware accelerated Direct 3D 9+ is not available because the display driver does not support it. not sure what this means but maybe this is the problem. Where do i find info for what graphic card I have?
