If it doesn't cure it, click start>run. Type "dxdiag" (no quotes) in the run box and hit your enter key.
On the "system" tab, at the bottom of the list, is the version of directx currently installed.
If it's lower then 9.0c, then go here
, download and install it, reboot, then test again.
If the issue still remains, from the desktop, click "My Computer" and select "properties".
Click the "hardware" tab then click the "Device Manager" button.
Click the + sign next to "display adapters, right click the adapter and select "properties".
Click the "driver" tab and note the version number. If it's lower then version 81.98, go here
, download and install the latest drivers and reboot. Read the "driver installation hints document" while you're there.
