I just got my new computer last week,
And I installed warcraft 3, it worked fine
Now today I reformatted my hard drives, and installed warcraft 3 again
It says: warcraft 3 was unable to initialize directx. Please ensure you have 8.1 or higher and that your display drivers are current.
Well, when I go to dxdiag, it tells me: Direct-X version: DirectX 10
Thats 8.1 or higher right??
Or is there something wrong with my drivers??
I don't know anything about drivers I just reinstalled my vista and formated my drives, so I don't know what happened
Your graphics card will work without drivers but to work properly they need a bunch of code called drivers. These drivers would have presumably been on the hard drive you formatted. You can get new ones from the web site of which ever company your card is from ATI or Nvidia
go to device manager and see if there are any error messages. Most likely, you need to go to your mobo manufacturers website and download the onboard sound drivers and ethernet drivers. that is, assuming that you have everything plugged in right and nothing is broken
Is that sarcasm;)
It`s possible you have not reinstalled your motherboard drivers either, most modern MBs` have onboard sound (needs driver) and a NIC (Network Interface Controller) that connects to the `net (also needs driver). You may find these drivers on a disc which came with the new computer, if not, best bet is to try Tech Support.
Tell us if this is store bought or a homebuild, can you?
