Windows 7: WOW will not load

WOW will not load

I just finished upgrade from Vista to 7 and when I attempt to play WOW I get the following message "Failed to find suitable display device". I did have to remove the ATI manager from the system when upgrading but cannot find a replacement.

Everything else seems to work but the WOW game.

You should download the drivers from ATi's Website.

Might try running as admin or checking the compatibility and setting it as Vista or XP as well, sometimes in Win7 things act wierd.

Most probably a driver issue. Compatibility isn't really a direct cause but could be the root of the problem.

Download and install the latest drivers for your gfx card. If you have any trouble be sure to post and tell us what graphics card you have so we can help you find the correct drivers to install.

Well I downloaded and installed the latest drivers for my video card, I have a Toshiba Satelite laptop, and now when WOW attempts to load I get the message it can't load the 3d accellarator and asks for directx 9.0c. I downloaded it and installed it and get the same message. I re-started the laptop just in case it was needed to complete the install but still get the same message.
