This is a response to my old topic that was closed (Sorry) And before I left this place, I wanted to leave a solution to the people who MAY have the same problem as I do sometime maybe in the future.

Old Topic: http://www.geekstogo...63#entry1534363

Okay, I just found out that the Hardware Acceleration had to be turned up, and you may find this button scale by right clicking on your desktop>properties>settings>advanced>trouble shoot. To turn it on, drag the button all the way to the right to "full", to turn it off, drag it to the left to "none".

And if you have a DirectX problem, go to start>run>(type in) dxdiag>(click) Ok

Then, a window should pop up and click on the tabs, or press next, and check in the little white box that's labeled "Notes" along the way to see if you have a problem. Make sure to read all the information in the box EVEN IF IT SAYS "No Problems Found" If there is a problem then I suggest you look it up and find the answer. If you have the problem "Direct3D functionality not available. You should verify that the driver is a final version from the hardware manufacturer." Then the solution to that is up above because I had that problem.

Thank you for all the support along the way in the old topic. Special thanks to "edge2022" and "rshaffer61" for sticking along the way. Thank you :)

Please start your own topic as this one has not had a response in almost a year.
Although your issue may seem similar there can be other factors that may need to be resolved.
By bumping on someone's topic it makes it confusing for the tech to understand who they are helping. This can in turn cause the wrong support to be given and can cause instability or worse to happen to your system.
Thank you for your cooperation.
