I just got a new totally sweet video card (radeon 9600 Pro) but right now I can only play games that support OpenGL. I tried installing DirectX 9 from microsoft, but when I actually try playing games it says DirectX isn't installed. I had this trouble before on my old illegal os, but this one is legal and registered so I shouldn't be having problems (on my old one it said 'DirectX cannot be installed on this version of windows' when i try to install it. Now I can install it and everything but when I try playing the actual games it gives me the error).
Anyone know what to do? I'm kinda stuck.
Did you check DirectX site for help? Or maybe you need to update your drivers for your video card or something. Either way I think you took a wrong turn and missed the tech board :)
Yes I have been searching the directx site for help but it has not been helping. My drivers are up to date from ati.com
I put this in the general discussions board because more people view it than the techboard.
