Hey all.

I recently and miraculously got my computer working and I want to play World of Warcraft.. I easily top requirements and such, and have played it using my systems stuff. But now, on ME, it fails to initialize Direct 3D.
When I ran Dxdiag and closed my usual errors.. On my display tab Direct 3D isnt even highlighted, and I assumed it's because I get:

DirectDraw test results: Failure at step 1 (Loading DirectDraw DLL): HRESULT = 0x887600ff (Not found)

When I test DirectDraw...

I am also getting Ddraw.dll errors for Starcraft and a few other programs...

Any help would be appreciated. :cry:

You probably don't have it installed. Did you go to the Windows Update Site and download all of the Critical Updates and Service Packs?

I suggest getting the Critical Updates and Service Packs to keep your computer's operating system and programs in top condition.

If this is not the case go HERE and install DirectX 9.0c
