Please help i've been having problems playing certain dvd titles. when i press play the error comes up. Cannot render video. Please check your graphics drivers and ensure they support the latest version of direct x. So i went onto a website and downloaded the direct x 9.0 which said it was the latest version. How do i check if it's downloaded properly if it has what could be the problem because the same error comment is still coming up when i try to play dvd.

Start > Run > Type: DXDIAG

Then "DirectX Files" at the bottom if it says "No problems found" then you should be ok with DX9.

Also go to "Display" and make sure nothing is disabled, If it is enable it.

You should also update your video drivers.
