Default Re: directX error help HELP ME

You need to update your drivers for your card. Find them at ATI.com. Also I think your card doesnt support dx9 at all so that also could be some trouble.

Direct3d is a feature of a different Video card,ATI does it different.
Do all the 3 results for your's say "enabled" ?
