anyone know how to do this?

hold your pants.

you have vga.dll this is not your card's driver, this is the standard one windows throws at it so it at least works.

go to your vga card's manufacturer site and download the most current drivers.

09-21-2005, 01:30 PM
whats the site plz and u get 50 credz

09-21-2005, 01:40 PM
If you fins what driver you have and post it here (or google it)
the site should be there :-) then looks for drive updates

Gimme the make of the GFX card and Ill find out for you


Go into Windows Update and then it will automatically search for hardware drivers that you need once done that - Download the Latest DirectX - Which is DirectX 9.0c - Once downloaded that install it - Once installed Go to DxDiag and then enable it - After this it should work

but first i need the manufacturer site or you can go into Windows Update and download thru there

Post anymore queries and ill be glad to help

go into control panel > System > Hardware tab > Device manager > open up/click the plus sign of the Display adapters and give me the name

If it's a GeForce video card you can always go to their website & download the drivers. You don't need to know the model, the site automatically detects the type of video card you're using. If your using ATi that's another story. :blink:

09-21-2005, 02:34 PM

09-21-2005, 05:26 PM
lol - if you have installed your drivers that was 1 step

Now install the latest DirectX which is 9c you can find that from MS Windows Update - Go to Tools>Windows Update if using IE

OR you can go here http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details...&displaylang=en (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=0a9b6820-bfbb-4799-9908-d418cdeac197&displaylang=en)

OR an alternative to MS (because you need a valid Windows Serial it checks for that) here

EDIT - LMAO!!!!! Works without that was funny-lol ur right stupid computers
