Ok, so to make a long story short, after having to do a system restore on my comp, I have been left with a number of unresolved issues.

the first of these is that I am unable to play Guild Wars. I have been dealing with them all afternoon. After performing updates, defrags etc. its even worse off than before. I get a 3d initiation error which tells me to update my drivers. The problem is that I already have.

the second issue is that I can no longer play warcraft 3 (and I need my DotA fix). again, my comp tells me that it cant find initiate directX 8.1 or better. but whenever I try to re-install directx or update it, the computer informs me that it is already up to date. If at all possible, I would like to not resort to re-installing either of the games

Are there any suggestions as to what I can do about this?


Many thanks.

As a matter of fact, I have.

I seem to have resolved my issues by rolling back the drivers for my video card. That appears to have rid my system of most of its problems.

Thanks though.
