I get this error message as an application pop up in Event viewer(system) any ideas or does anyone know the answer, there is loads of stuff on the internet about it but no one really seems to know what its for.

This is an intel processor so its not an AMD this but it is a pentium 3 600 pga so is a little outdated.

On your machine you must have a application that relies on DirectX like a game, P2P program, multimedia, etc.  

I had this exact problem before and installing DirectX 9.0b corrected the problem for me.  This update is also included with Windows Update (but not part of the Critical Update).

For the update click here:  http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=141d5f9e-07c1-462a-baef-5eab5c851cf5&displaylang=en  

That should do it.  Good luck.

Any ideas why this would only happen to run on start up I don't have any apps running on startup that would use Direct x, that I am aware of .


I have recently installed service pack 2 and don't get this error message anymore.


I am going to check the other pc at my friends which I have just put service pack 2 on and see if it has stopped that machine getting this message and see if that has cured it.

Cheers for your comment I will let you know.
