Windows 7: enabling display direct draw/3D

enabling display direct draw/3D

I am having issues with a few things. I believe it is due to display settings. #1) My yahoo messenger stops working. #2) When I go to display/device and click on advanced, Windows explorer stops working. I have uninstalled and reinstalled DirectX/Microsoft. NET/Java/Microsoft C ++ I have checked that my flash is the most current. I have done all the updates for Windows. System specs are:Microsoft Windows [Version 6.1.7601]

I am operating in admin acct, as my user acct won't run adobe flash at all anymore.

My Directdraw and 3D are either disabled or not available, and I can find no way to enable, or find more information regarding this.

I am probably forgetting some of the stuff that I have done, but these are the basics.

Welcome to our forum ShanRE627.

I'm thinking your notebook doesn't have the hardware or horse power to run 3D.

I have never owned a notebook or laptop so wait for others to replay.
