Alright for the past few months I have neglected this computer by letting it sit all alone by itself with no internet connection in my bedroom. And well I cleaned off the spiderwebs and gave it some power and updated everything and now its as good as new! However - There has been an error that I always been noticing with the computer which I was hoping would be fixed with all the new updates I did on it; that did not get fixed.

It has to do with the Diagnostic tool that you can go under when you go to Start: Run: Type in: dxdiag

When everything goes well you are given a lot of system information as well as given tabs with additional specific information you want to look at, etc..

However - For me it is not doing so well. I keep coming up with a DxDiag Error saying "Error: Could not find DXDIAGN.DLL" when I hit ok after I type in Dxdiag in the "Run" program.

I tried some googling of past experiences other people had and downloading of the DirextX 9.0c stuff and still no luck.

Anyone have any advice or have dealt with this type of problem before and have found a solution?

Most appreciated! Thank you

Download it from DLLDump.com and place it in the C:\Windows\System\dxdiagn.dll
This should solve the problem.

Ohh Acklan I wish you were right =(

I downloaded it and indeed it was not in with the rest of the system .dll's. But even after I put it in and a whole restart - Run: Dxdiag - And same error message again ><

Though might I add - It sticks out then the rest of them - its in black text with grey texting belowing while the rest of the .dll's are all blue text >.> Maybe something needs to make that recoginized? dunno x.x

try this
1.) Copy the files you would like to register to [C:\WINDOWS\system32]
2.) Go to the command prompt Start --> Run --> cmd
3a.) To install/register the file type in: regsvr32 file.dll
3b.) To uninstall the files type: regsvr32 -u file.dll

substitute your file for bold

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.

If that fails, uninstall DirecX, and download and install this version from Microsoft.
