you probably have an nvidia or ati video card. go to the appropriate web site and dwnld the drivers for the model of card you have. dont install beta drivers.

pm me if you dont know how find your video card model and make.

if your video card drivers are up to date, try downloading the latest directx from here:

the card i am running is an older Stealth S60 card. the problem i am trying to solve is after installing Vista (i know, but i was bored) on an older Xp box some of the graphics will not work because i need at least Direct3D abilities....so the machine says.

so you installed vista and now your colors are off and your icons are huge?

i would go into the device manager and into your graphics card properties. im not familiar with vista but you should have the option to update the graphics driver. if you cannot update via Vista, i would search for a downloadable graphics driver for a Stealth S60 for Windows Vista (this may be a challenge).

if youre getting this error when trying to run a video game, you might be good to go with just installing directX.

edit: you may be out of luck. i believe the stealth s60 uses the ati radeon 7000 driver. i dont think they have Vista drivers for this but i may be wrong.

You are right. There are no Vista drivers for that card. I can into a similar case here at the shop and after hunting around  the internet AND calling ATI, they said there are no available drivers compatible with Vista. (which USUALLY means there is no windows 7 driver either.)
