directx 3d acceleration card not available
Posted on 2002-07-20
hi everyone, really need some help here. i'm using windows xp but can't run directx 8.1. when i checked it out, i learned that the direct 3d acceleration is unavailable. i tried downloading directx 8.1 again but everytime the computer detects that a similar program is already installed, it won't execute anymore. i can't even uninstall it. i don't know how can i get a 3d acceleration card (or whatever it is called)without downloading the whole progam. thanks a lot. looking forward to a response.
i'm using a fujitsu lifebook, OS- ATI. i recently installed warcraft III but it won't run because there's no 3d acceleration card. can't install directx 8.1 which comes with the game. the message was "directx 8.1 or latest version already installed." i checked the directx 8.1 program in my notebook and saw that while directdraw is enabled, direct 3d is "not available". i'm not doing any programming. i simply want to play some games which require directx.
