Ok this has been really been an issue. i belive the solution to this has something to do with the driver. I have a HP Pavillion xt345(really a Pavilion ze4000). i lledcan not get the video card to work on any games. its gives me a spoong error and tells me to check to see if direct x 9 is installed or or video driver might not be installed. well dx9 is installed i just don't know what video driver to use. i have tried installing ATI MOBILITY RADEON (Omega 3.8.291) [Display adapter] and still no luck. any ideas? here is the specs

Off the top of my head, I'd download direct x 9.0c again directly from microsoft and install it. I've recently learned that they actually do update it every now and again, but don't rename it every time. The last update was in December.

If that fails, then I'd download the ATI drivers for the card, uninstall the Omega drivers, restart, then install the latest ATI drivers that you just downloaded.

If that fails, then you might have to reinstall the drivers for the card.

Let us know how you make out! :thumbsup:

Run dxdiag from start/run and post it up. I have the exact same laptop but Im having a different issue, which I'll ask you about later since you have the same one.

driver version: 6.13.0010.6071
driver name: ati2dvag.dll

I actually used a ze5000 notebook restore diskset (due to a HD failure) and I didnt have the original restore disks. and dxdiag is reporting no problems. Post up your Dxdiag log and I'll compare it to mine. My question do you is... Is your wired network controller in working order? Im having some serious issues trying to find a driver (since the ze5000 diskset does not have the correct one) and original XP (yes original release xp) does not recognize my card.... If you could. could you post the driver specs on this onboard network card for me. Oh btw I got directx 9.0b installed as well. Could this also be a lack of video memory? Remember this laptop only has 32megs of video memory on board and since the bios is SO... locked up by HP changing this is not possible (if its shared memory) But I have no problems with my video card I'll do some searching see if I can find you a weblink for the drivers that Im using and see if that can help you just post up dxdiag in the meantime.
