games are giving me problems

  filthpig 15:28 23 Apr 2007

i had a game installed on my computer and it wasnt working, the game was oblivion and i was getting an error message something like this:
the application has failed to launch dxd39.dll is missing
i ran dxdiag and there didnt seem to be any problems
recently i formatted my drive and i installed a different game: call of juarez whixh i then got the aformentioned message with juarez even though i worked fine before
now oblivion works fine but this other game doesnt
i have no idea what is wrong coz i have a decent video card and my system is fine with any other gaems
any advice would be great thanks
