I just reformatted my computer and I installed a few games (League of Legends, etc)but when I launch them I get an error, both pretty similar and relating to the same problem. "Could not load Direct3D".
My fist instinct was to download and update my video drivers, which is the "Intel® 82915G/GV/910GL Express Chipset Family".
Then I realized something, it gave me this error from the display adapter:
This device cannot find enough free resources that it can use. (Code 12) If you want to use this device, you will need to disable one of the other devices on this system. You need to restart your computer before the changes you made to this device will take affect. Click Troubleshoot to start the troubleshooter for this device.I tried using the troubleshooter but it didn't help me fix anything.
Then I ran dxdiag and it gave me this:
The system is using the generic video driver. Please install video driver provided by the hardware manufacturer. To test DirectDraw functionality, click the "Test DirectDraw" button above. Direct3D functionality not available. You should verify that the driver is a final version from the hardware manufacturer.
The major thing I noticed was it said "Main Driver: vga.dll" which is the windows software moniter (I believe).
I have no idea how to fix this, I've tried everything, but I'm pretty sure the Display Driver is up to date, it's just the fact that it's not being used. I assume that DirectX won't work under the VGA monitor and the only way to fix this is to get the computer to use the original monitor instead.
What I've done so far:
- Updated Windows
- Reinstalled DirectX
- Reinstalled the Display Adapter (From Intel & Dell)
- Reinstalled the games
- Call Dell, never mentioned anything about it using the VGA drivers though.
Hope you guys can help me, thanks :D
