I am running Microsoft windows XP service pack 2, 1.8GHz,256 MB of ram, Dell Dimension 8200, gforce ti 200 64mg ram video card. Ok here is my problem everthing was fine I intalled a game(The mark)Says game wont play without directx 9.0c, and it wont play because its not reading my directx. I ran dxdiag and it says version 9.0c. Reports no errors and passes all test. Tried reinstalling 9.0c and the same. Then tried to install the game(The Godfather) and get the same results. Why doesnt these games read my directx 9.0c. Have not tried but maybe all games reqireing directx.
