or here:


Download DirectX End-User Runtime Web Installer from Official Microsoft Download Center
Oh, they already tried. BIG file. 14 minutes to go.

You mean replacing made no difference? or you couldn't get Direct-X itself to install?

Well it was worth a try, just in case something with it had gone fowl.

Try dxdiag.exe from the search box.

That is the Direct-X troubleshooting tool, click on all tabs and see if any errors are listed in the bottom boxes, the System tab doesn't have that, the others do.... just checked my own, and I am good.

Glad to hear it, I love my PC usually after a wipe and drop until I re-bloat it with all the 3rd party software.

I am trying hard this time (I say this every time) to do less testing and stick with just what I need.
