USER32.dll Error.....###

Hello everybody @ Experts-Exchange,

I'm kinda game freak. :-)
I'm running a Windows 2000 OS.
Whenever i try to open games like NFS Underground, NFS SE II, NFS Porche Unleashed, Mortal Combat, Midtown Madness, etc...
I get an error which says

"The procedure entry point GetRawInputDeviceList could not be located in the dynamic link library USER32.dll"  

I downloaded a new User32.dll file from the net and copied to the "\system32" folder, but still i get the same error.

Can i get a relief from this problem??..

thanks for reading it :D

this sounds like a problem with directX.
Uninstall directX, reboot and install it again

Hi ---

This could be an issue with DirectX or it could be an incomaptiblity with the OS and the games. I was running Windows 2000 Pro before switching to XP and I could not play High Heat or one of the NFS games.

running sfc /scannow should resolve this problem. Its a file conflict.

Good Work. MrAruba.
Well, the guy couldn't play NFS Underground, something no man should be missing, it's kinda the same thing like 'education for all children in the world', and a social motivated dude like me I always do my best to get as much sorrow out of the world as possible :-)
