Hello guys.
I really need your help and I'll be glad if you could help me.

When I wanted to play NFS Most Wanted it wanted to have some D3DX_26.dll or something like that and installed DirectX 9.0c but something went wrong.

Now when I turn my PC on it takes too long to boot. I have to wait about a minute from "Windows 7 is starting" screen ( to "Welcome screen" (
and the screen goes BLACK.

I installed latest DirectX package but nothing, I repaired Windows 7 with the option "Install a new fresh copy of Windows" but nothing changed.

I hope you have a solution.

Thanks forward

Try to restore the system to an earlier restore point.

If it doesn't help, try to completely remove DirectX:

After you've uninstalled it, install a fresh copy of the DirectX, and see if it works.

I've deleted DirectX via this way ----(, uninstalled it and tried to install the latest DirectX but an error appears "Please refer to dxerror.log and directx.log in your Windows folder to determine problem"

why did you try to install DirectX 9 on Windows 7? It's DirectX 11 - try reinstalling that instead.

The problem was not with DirectX :) 

I installed a clean installation of Windows 7 and it was working well till I installed some Codecs and Platforms such as Java, QuickTime, Flash Player, Shockwave Player, K-Lite Codec Pack and some other software.

Now I'm uninstalling them one by one and I hope I'll fix the problem and if I fix it I'll tell you. :) 

Thanks for your help anyway.

Best solution
