What does "can't" mean? Does running dxdiag do nothing? Does it crash? Does it give you an error? What error? What Direct3D program are you testing? Do you have the latest drivers for your graphics card?

Windows Update will probably have updates for your driver.

Is there anything in the Notes field at the bottom of the Display tab? I have:
Quote:

* No problems found.
* To test DirectDraw functionality, click the "Test DirectDraw" button above.
* To test Direct3D functionality, click the "Test Direct3D" button above.


Can you take a screenshot of that page, upload it to something like photbucket and then link it here?

yeh it says this

No problems found.
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.

Then you don't have a driver installed [smile]

If there's nothing on Windows Update, you could try the website of the manufacturer of your PC / laptop, or you might have an install / recovery CD with the drivers on it.

do you think this will solve my problem if i update
If a graphics driver is listed in the list of updates, yes. I'd recommend updating anyway - Windows Updates are there for a reason, and may contain important security of compatibility fixes.
