Installing DirectX/3D: AGP Texture Acceleration Are Not Available?
Jun 26, 2010
HI currently have from what I can see a very common and well known problem with Direct3D. My computer has DirectX 9.0c ( 4.09.0000.0904 ) installed. I assume that Direct3D comes along with DirectX and should be installed seperately. However when I click on the Diplay tab Direct Draw Acceleration, Direct 3D acceleration, and AGP texture acceleration are not available and the option buttons are grayed out.
My graphics card is Ati Radeon 9250. I have downloaded the Ati Catalyst Control center and the drivers for the graphics card, however the problem still wasn't solved . Could someone please help me out with this matter, since it's really bugging me, any help would be much appriciated. I have also included print screens that I think may be good to look at and see certain information. If any other information is needed or you have questions that please do not hesistate as I really need to get this issue sorted.
Hello all, I was wondering is there a way we can install directx 10 onto XP 32-bit. directx 10 is one of the main reason why Vista 64-bit is the best way to go for gamers, but I'm trying to save $150 and installing specfic drivers needed to run Vista properly on my PC. Looking at my specs, should I go head and invest in Vista Home Prem 64-bit or settle for XP 64-bit and hope for the best when SP3 comes out?
Can I safely install directx 10 or 11 on my system? Where do I find the downloadable executable install file? Will upgrading the DirectX in my system cause any problems with any current programs I'm running on my system (mostly MS office, a Couple of MMO's and a stand alone game or two)?
Just formatted my desktop and installed a fresh copy of XP Pro on it. I did a search on google and found that some people said XP does not support directX 10, but then when you go to the directX website to download it, Windows XP IS under the list of "Supported Operating Systems". So is 10 supported by XP, or do I have to download 9.0c?
I would like to create a script of some sort that can be run by a regular user and that can reduce the sound acceleration like in the Sound tab of dxdiag. An older game my kids run needs lower acceleration to function properly. A second script to reset it would be helpful too. I don't want to give my kids admin priv or have to set it myself before and after each gaming session.
By mistake I unzipped some Microsoft Flight Simulator texture files to my desktop [from a safe site I have been using for years] instead of the intended FS04 folder. I deleted the files and cleared the recycle bin, the next time I turned on the system all the files were on the desktop again. I restored the system back a few days before the files were unzipped, no luck, the files reappear every time my computer is turned on.
My computer started acting up, and I couldn't play any games.WoW mainly -(Yes I play it) and Cod4, So finally I managed to fix it myself and this is what I did. Went into device manager, disabled then enabled my GFX card, Then I have to go into display properties and change 3D acceleration to 0 then back to full, Also when I do this it corrects my resolution.
However, EVERY time I power down my computer, I have to do this which get's very annoying
I think I am losing what little sanity that I have left. I am having a couple of problems and they seem to be linked. Let's see if I can explain this so that it makes sense. I downloaded directx 9.oc last week don't know where it went because when I try to run "dxdiag" it says that I have vers 8.1 then everything crashes and all that I can do is push the reset button. Then when everything comes back I get an error message about the nv4_disp.dll
Is it possible to get DirectX 11 for Windows XP anywhere??? minus the trojans?? I would like to run an ATI HD5450 card in my Lenovo 3000 J110 7393 it has a PCIe slot but I cannot seem to run it no matter what i have tried .
When I try to play Tony Hawk's Pro Skaker 4 on my laptop and I get the following error:The file SiS630v.dll is not digitally signed, which means that it has not been tested by Microsoft's Windows Hardware Quality Labs (WHQL). You may be able to get a WHQL logo'd driver from the hardware manufacturer. The file sis7018.sys is not digitally signed, which means that it has not been tested by Microsoft's Windows Hardware Quality Labs (WHQL). You may be able to get a WHQL logo'd driver from the hardware manufacturer.I think the main problem is that my drivers (audio and graphic) are not verified or whatever with Windows.How can I do this?How can I can each of their logo'd driver from SiS?
Tried installing a program but it needed DirectX8.1.. Went to MS site and found that DX8.1 is already installed in XP. DOwnloaded and reinstalled anyway. Program still doesn't find it. Think it may be a registry problem but am hesitant to fool around with it. Anyone know how to make XP default to DX8.1? (There are other DirectX's in registry, i.e DX3, DX6 etc. Think it may be defaulting to one of these.
I had to reinstall my OS (Windows XP) to correct a problem I was having. I did so, and afterwards reinstalled all my drivers and such to get everything back in working order. Everything is fine now, but for some reason Windows isn't recognizing DirectX. Whenever I try to run a game (for example, World of Warcraft), the screen flickers a few times (as if it's changing the resolution), then the game shuts down. In WoW's case, I get an error message stating "World of Warcraft was unable to start up 3D acceleration. Please make sure DirectX 9.0c is installed and your video drivers are up-to-date." (again, no game is working, but WoW is the only game that's actually giving me a specific error message).
My video card is an ATI Radeon X1650 and I uninstalled the drivers for that and reinstalled them, which did not correct the problem. I'm certain I DO have DirectX 9.0c, as I installed it just yesterday and running dxdiag confirms that I do indeed have that version of DirectX installed.
I unfortunately deleted 3 reg keys @ HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMIcrosoftDirectx and now I dont have DirectX, accordng to dxdiag. I have tried to download several packages from Microsoft,(directx_9c_redist.exe), opened it and run dxsetup. This however does not change anything. I have also tried to run it directy from 2 videogame cd's, but with the same result. I really need help, I cant play stalker.
I recently got a virus on it and reinstalled xp. Now all the games I used to play on it are coming up with directx errors. When I looked at the errors in the diagnostic tool it tells me I am using generic drivers. So I popped my driver disk in and installed them all but it still gave me the same error. So I reinstalled directx 9.0 with no fix. I understand that this thing is a beast and I should just stop using it but, it is the only pc I want to clutter up with old games and stuff. And I know it is compatible because I used to play these games before.
I'm having trouble w/forwarding e-mails that have pix. Does that have anything to do w/directx? When I did a search on my computer for directx it said read only is that what it should be? Basicly what is directx/what does it do?
When trying to insall DirectX I get an error message stating "A cabinet file necessary for installation cannot be trusted. Please verify the Cryptographic Services are enables and the cabinet file certificate is valid."
After downloading a game, I found out I needed Microsoft DirectX SDK to make it work. I downloaded it but now it's telling me:There is not enough free disk space on drive C:The amount of free space required on the drive is 1, 124, 040,704 bytes.The space currently available on the drive is 612, 560, 896 bytes. I've tried getting rid of as much as I could on my computer (Microsoft XP by the way) but it didn't make much difference. And I really don't have much at all on it either.
Have you ever had headache while playing a game? Did you ever noticed a low refresh rate in your game? Here is a solution how to change it.1. Select Start > Run, and type "dxdiag".2. When the dialog appears find the last tab, and click "Override" (or somthing similar).2. Just type your Value (be careful, dont type a value that your graphics card or monitor can't do!). Click Ok, and that is it!Remember you changed the refresh rate only for DirectX Applications, not for OpenGL.
