So I went to the Direct X Control Panel and ran tests. The tests passed running Direct X 7 but failed on Direct X 8 and above. So I went to the Manufacture web site and learned that my video card only supports up to Direct X 7.
What I would like to know is if there is a way to simulate Direct X 9 so I can at least open the two programs. One is a game that has 3D.
I would think that they would both open up at least but to no avail. When I click on them nothing happens.
I know the other way is to get a new video card. However I have built in video and the picture is quite clear and, actually, extremely good video quality. When I play a DVD the picture quality is excellent.
If anyone has any suggestions please let me know. Thank you!
Everything is up to date and I do have DX9 installed. There are no other problems when running tests.
