Whenever I click on the halo trial icon, a box comes up and says "A problem occured initializing Direct3D. Hardware acceleration maybe disabled, please run DXDIAG.

I already ran the diagnostic test, it didn't help. and every time i close that little box, nothing happens, I can't play halo!

Please Help! :-(
 

A:Halo trial help please?

are you sure your computer has the nessesary hardware to run halo? what kind of video card do you have?

assuming you have the proper hardware, you can always try updating your graphics drivers. what version of directx do you have installed? what version of windows are you running (include service pack)

Halo Trial - Fatal Error said:

A problem occured initializing Direct3D. Hardware acceleration maybe disabled, please run DXDIAGClick to expand...

Hey, slightly frustrated at this problem... I made this same thread awhile back, and I'm still having trouble for no apparant reason.

Okay, here is what is happening:

I am trying to play the Halo Trial, I install it fine and click the shortcut. It begins to load, before any menu screen comes up, I get a GAY error that is completely random and has no justification. I have the latest DirectX, and have the latest video drivers for my graphics card. I run games from Call of Duty, to Eve Online perfectly fine with no problems. They're both fully 3D games and graphics intensive, why does Halo feel the need to be a complete spanner in the works?

Screenshots:
Error
DirectX Version
Video Drivers

Hey, I'm re-addressing this problem as my previous thread I made about this wasn't answered well.

Sometime halfway through playing, my monitor auto offs. The game will freeze for awhile, then the screen turns black, and it says "Going to sleep". However, my CPU is still on. Attempting to on the monitor again is of no use. Sometimes, the game minimizes, telling me to run DXDIAG. When I run it, most of the time I pass the test, however I sometimes I fail the test. After passing the test, I try to open Halo again. However, a new problem arises. It tells me that my shaders/bin (or something close to that) is corrupted. I try reinstalling but it does not work. The computer at times, freezes in the game. I can't do anything, and I have to resort to turning the computer off. When I press the 'on' button once, it will present to me the normal turning-the-computer-off signals (eg. saving your settings etc.) however, the graphics are majorly distorted. The amount of time it takes for this occurence really varies.

This also occurs when I'm playing NFSMW. After I load my alias and try to move. For Maple which is more colourful as compared to Halo, it can still work fine unless I stand in crowded areas like the Chl1 Free Market.

Is there a need to change my graphic card?

I need help with the Halo Trial for PC.
I've installed it, I run it, and it says this:
"A problem occurred initializing Direct3D. Hardware acceleration may be disabled, please run DXDIAG."
I'm using the Windows XP Proffesional OS Service Pack 2, and my video card is an ATI Radeon Xpress 200 Series, version 6.14.0010.6534.
Is there an update for DirectX or any of its components? Or is there an update for my video card? Or do I have to change my video card altogether?
Some help would really be appreciated.

Okay. While playing, the game automatically shuts down itself. It tells me that a fatal error has occured. It asks me to run Dxdiag. So I ran it. Everything worked fine. When I tried to open the game again, it gave me this message.

If its not this message then it will be the one telling me that shaders\vsh.bin is corrupted and stuff. I've deleted and reinstalled the game numerous times. However, nothing seems to be working. Restarting the computer works for awhile. Then the game crashes. Can someone help me solve this problem?

Well, you probably clicked on it to soon after closing. Your computer didn't realize it was closed yet. Some times it will still be running in the background also. So you can use task manager to close it. If all else fails you can always just log off and log back on or restart your computer.

Ok first time poster so bear with me.

First here are the specs of my pc which shouldn't really matter,

Windows Xp Home Edition SP1
Pentium 4 1.6ghz
256mb SDRam
80gb Western Digital
Ati Radeon 9600Pro with 256mb ddrram
Modem: Dynalink RTA1320 1mb Downstream and 128kb Upstream

Now the problem is I can join multiplayer games fine, but when it comes to hosting no one can join. Now heres the tricky part, PC 1 Has the modem/router connected to it and PC 2 (the one playing Halo on) is connected to PC 1 by crossover ethernet cable. So Im connected to PC 1 and using internet via the Internet Connection Sharing. Currently the computers get there Ip address's via DCHP (think thats what it is)

So I portforwaded the Ip's both pc's had for the one day untill it changed, and the ports for Halo, but still no luck, also disabled firewalls on both pc's and tried the DMZ option on the modem, still no luck.

Sorry for making this so long, any help would be appreiceted (sp) in simple terms as to what i can do.

Thanks, Skull

Well, ive had Halo Trial for a while now, and really enjoy playing it (better players then on FV), and recently i just noticed when lets say im going forward crouching, and then i look left(Im still holding crouch and forward), and while looking to the left, my mouse goes really slow even though i moved it fast! Then, if i keep spinning the mouse, the game compensates and goes slow mouse movements then really fast twitches!

Its starting to get annoying. If that is too confusing this might help. If i hold too many keys on the keyboard at the same time, my mouse moves slow. But, this only happens in games. The only other game this happened was Jedi Knight 2: Jedi Outcast.

I have a nagging question that I need answered by E-MAIL only, not by telephone or by snail mail. I want to know how a person can take out the keys/tage that prevent them from continuing a trial version of a game or program. I know the registry puts some sort of key/tag that stops you from going past a timed trial or a 30 day free trial of a program. My biggest problem is I need to remove all evidences of the program so that I can also install the new program with no "trash" on my hard drive as well. The trial versions are never long enough or good enough to justify the purchase as of yet to me. How can I remove all the trah and debris of the trial programs I install so that the computer will see it as the fact that it was never installed to begin with? Thank you for your time and help.

Hello. To start off I have Windows XP and I can JOIN a halo game very easily and every time but people can't connect to me.. I know that people are unable to connect rather than choosing not to because I've had friends try to connect to me.. I have fast enough internet with cable (368k upload or something) and I've port forwarded ports 2302 and 2303 for udp and tcp and also tried using dmz.. I have a static IP address (which is 192.168.1.136) . . . I am using a Linksys WRT54G with a 54 mb wireless connection. I have tried disabling the firewall which I'm using (Default Windows Firewall) . . . I have also unchecked the box which says Block Anonymous Internet Requests... Lastly, I don't think my server IP address on Halo should be 192.168.1.136 (with port 2302) but it is and I don't know how to change it... Can anyone help me with this? I've tried everything but I really dont know on this one.. Any help is GREATLY appreciated..

P.S. I used to have dsl with a different router and on a cord connection rather than wireless internet.. I have also reformatted my computer since then so the settings may have been changed.. Sorry for long post!!

Can I run the trial for office 2007 and keep my 2003 stuff loaded and running? My life's in OneNote 2003, which I have the full version of(2 copies, actually), but my trial for all the other office things *just* expired, and I've got a giant paper due in 2 weeks. Which is now read-only. I can't figure out what I need to do in Oo.o in regards to headers and formatting. Which is the main reason I'm currently in a state of panic!

Do you have to get rid of 2003 to use 2007?

Edit: I'd like to hold off on buying 2007 until after the end of the semester, because I need to turn my tablet in for some pretty crazy repairs. And I'm debating the merits of switching to vista while all that's being changed around in the meantime. So I'd like to wait on buying until after I decide if Vista's gonna work for me.
 

A:Office 2007 trial question (My 2003 trial just expired!)

Hi there,

I'm not sure about the trial version, but with the whole version (which I understand the trial version to be, only with a countdown limit on it) you can install over 2003 and keep both versions. The only thing you cannot do this with is Outlook (you are only allowed one of those programs/versions at a time). There are some other minor issues, but for the most part, all can run together fairly well. I have 2003 and 2007 installed on my main hdd partition.

So when your 2007 trial is up, you can uninstall it, but will need to reinstall Outlook. It would probably be better to reinstall everything anyways. You may have issues with normal.dotx or personal.xlsb, etc.

Hi,
I downloaded a program with a 30 day trial but can't afford the full registration. When I uninstall and reinstall it knows how many days I have left. Is it writing this to the registry? How can I delete the info so when I reinstall I get the full 30 day trial again.

Thanks

Do you love Halo? Want to See the movies of "Reach", and find out why Master Chief is the last of the SPARTAN class super solders?

Mostly now I just play the Halo games on xbox, but I do have Halo: CE and Halo 2 on pc -this ties into Halo 1 and Halo 2, and you can get the "Halo" storyline on how it all started for those here:

So if you play (or have played) Halo:CE and Halo 2, and have considered getting the Halo 3/ODST/Reach games, or just want to watch some killer Halo videos to see how it all started, these Reach movies are a must see.

I've downloaded the Crysis demo about 4 times from different places.

Each time it finishes downloading I go through the installation process. Once the installation process is done and it says it was successful, I go to play the game but there is no shortcut. In fact there's no files on my hard drive (other than the download file). I've tried rebooting, with no luck. I can view the Add/Remove Programs list, and it's in there, but the game is nowhere to be found.

Is this a problem with Vista? Or was I just really unlucky and dl'ed 4 corrupt files in a row?

Thanks for any help!

Is it just me or is call of duty 4 the shortest ever demo ... seriously?

A small firefight, take out a few tanks, take out some resistance, blow up an AA gun and call for air support and it's over.

One and a half gig download for 15 mins ....if.

I played through it once...didn't really like it.....played it once more and thought maybe I was a bit hard on it and it was OK.... and then uninstalled it.

What is even worse for this game is that there was no multiplayer at all and when you compare this to other demoes that came out recently..ET:QW and world in conflict .. well I was disappointed.

I was looking forward to this game and now probably won't buy it ... roll on brothers in arms and UT3.

Bioshock has received many great reviews - the trailers/TV ads looks quite good... and its using the new Unreal3 Engine....

So far, I am not impressed with a game that can't even start.

First, I have downloaded two different versions of an Offical Demo from reputable websites... Each version is 1.9GB in size! For such a well funded game and lots of TV marketing (Unreal has never been on TV) - the first DEMO creates a crappy game setup folder like this:

<drive>:\BioShock_PC_Demo_FF\raid10\temp\manager\nfdekpwgaj\BioShock PC Demo

WHAT IS THIS GARBAGE?! Unprofessional... Anyways, near the end of the install, the Windows Installer window POPS up, showing various optional instructions you could choose - for the Installer - means nothing.... only OKAY button is available anyways. The game says its installed. Click on the ICON and wow, an error pops up saying:

''This application has failed to start because the application configuration is incorrect. Reinstall the application may fix this problem''

I redownloaded a version from the offical site, the installer is not 5 sub-folders deep, but the game still refuses to run.... a lot of people are having this same problem.

So after 4GB of Downloads, 4 installs... this "cool" game is useless.

Next... This game has severe DRM... you are allowed ONLY 2 installs of the game. After that, your disc that you paid $50 is dead. Well, you can UNINSTALL the game and regain your "credit" - b... Read more

Hi all..

I just downloaded the FEAR SP demo and it installed properly, but when I try to play it it crashes to the desktop before it even gets to the first screen. I disabled the "Sound" and it seems like that was the problem. I updated my drivers (SB Audigy Platinum) and also disabled Hardware acc in DX and still same problem? If I go into the config and disable sound I can play, but not with the sound on. So not sure what else to check..any info can appreciated!

Hi guys,

I got a few problems with the demo F.E.A.R. The first is that I have to disable sound for it to work. The other thing is when I am able to play the game, In the very beggining after the car drops me off in that little alley way, I seems to be dropped off behind the car? and I have no way of getting around the car and I can't seem to find anyway into the building? Any info??

Thanks!
 

A:F.E.A.R Demo stuck??

F.E.A.R. ** spoiler alert **

First, playing this game without sound is removing a big part of what makes it so good. They did a tremendous job using sound (and silence) to set a mood that gets you so on edge while playing that its hard to stay in your skin. My phone ringing (real one not one in game) has made me almost pi** myself while playing it.

**spoiler time**
After you are dropped off in the ally, move forward and go right to find a boarded over doorway. To get through, you need to break the three small boards that are over it. The other boards won't break. (use your melee instead of wasting ammo on them) Go through the door, look around until you find the unlocked door that's near a flaming barrel. Move up to it and open it with the use key (unless you changed the defaults its F), then head inside to find yourself in a dim storage area. Get used to breaking things in the enviroment, F.E.A.R. uses the havoc engine and a lot of things you aren't used to are interactive and can be moved or broken. In fact you will frequently have to break ventilation grates, windows, boards and so on to find a way out of a level ... or even to flank a big group of badies before they break up and flank you.

Hello.
I understand that this post may be deleted because I am asking for a way around a password. I have had my posts delete on support websites already, but i thought it was worth another try.

I was wondering if there is anyway of bypassing passwords on windows vista? I just bought an ex-display PC, but for some reason, PC World hadnt reformatted so it was a clean start for me to use. So now im stuck with a PC that has a pc world demo account, that is passworded. I basically have no way to get onto the PC.

I tried pressing F8 on start up, and selecting the repair PC option, but I still need the password for the PC world account. I have contacted the support guys, but they are telling me to take it back to the store. I would like to find another way around it if I could before I have to take it back. (Its pretty hard for me to get there cos i cant drive)

Any help would be appreciated. The PC is a Dell XPS.

Hello, my computer has been infected with malware. It started off with Google redirecting sites about a week ago. That has subsided, but when I woke up this morning, a program called SWP2009 demo was running, just like a rouge malware.
It pretends to find infected files that are not really there, and if I put the window box in the corner, I can use the computer. I tried running Malwarebytes, but a Windows Security alert pops up at the bottom of my screen saying "Application cannot be executed. The file mbam.exe is infected. Do you want to activate your antivirus software now?" Currently the message says the file wuauclt.exe is infected.
I cannot access the task manager long enough to do anything. When I press Ctrl + Alt + Delete, the window flashes for a second, and then disappears. The same security message appears saying taskmgr.exe is infected.
Little yellow shields with exclaimation points collect on the bottom of the screen, whenever i scroll over them, they disappear. The shields then begin to recollect.
I'm new here and I would appreciate any help on this issue. Thanks!

I downloaded hijack this, but my computer will not let me run the program long enough for it to log anything.

It's a hefty download +/- 8MB, but you can do it in sections, which is handy. I've tried it and it IS fully functional. Definitely worth a try in my humble opinion.

What are your pc specs? It's quite possible that your current PC is too slow and won't be able to run it.

If your PC can run it, your graphics card's drivers may need updating, and this may be causing the game not to be able to run.

A:Uninstalling demo software

I have downloaded the Battlefield 2 Demo from about 6 different places and each one does the same thing. When I double-click the executable demo file, it opens the splash screen and then the first window of the installation. Before you can hit the "next" button, the installation closes down.

I have tried closing all running apps, have turned off my software and hardware firewalls, checked for viruses and spyware and nothing has helped.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

I have a P4 2.8
1 GB ram
Radeon 9600

Thanks

A:Half Life 2 Demo

Haven't played the demo in a while; are you in the city where people are walking around?

If so, go to the right, you will notice a dumpster I believe, get on top of that, jump over a fence, and there should be a ladder somewhere near the other side of the fence.

A:Battlefield 2 demo crashs

The demo crashes on my system too, usually when a big explosion happens. I have a 9800se and have experienced the problem with half life 2 as well. It goes into an infinite loop. Both the 9600 and 9800se seem to be plagued with these problems. I've been told, even though its a graphics problem turning off directx sound acceleration could help. I didn't work for me but it might work on your 9600.

In anticipation of my upcoming (or so I thought) purchase of Doom 3, I downloaded the demo to give it a test run. Boy, am I glad I did! Here's my problem: I run the program and it goes through the loading screen with the Mars background. Then, the screen goes black. Almost 30 seconds later, a pointer appears in the upper left, and the music starts. About 30 seconds after that, the Doom 3 logo appears with a series of buttons at the bottom. About 30 seconds later, a picture of Mars appears behind the logo, and every 30 seconds after that, the picture of Mars rotates a little bit. I am unable to move the pointer at all unless I happen to be moving the mouse when the picture of Mars rotates. When I enter the Task Manager to shut Doom 3 down, it shows Doom 3 alternating between a status of "running" (for a couple of seconds) and "not responding" (for about 30 seconds.)

Here are my system specs:

Intel P4 3.2Ghz
Intel D865PERL Motherboard
eVGA Nvidia GeForce FX 5200 (128 MB Ram)
1 Gig ddr 333Mhz RAM (2 DIMMS of 512 Mb each)
Sound Blaster Audigy 2
Win 2000

Since this problem, I have updated my BIOS, video card, and sound blaster with the latest versions (clean installs of the video card and sound card.) I have uninstalled and reinstalled the demo after each, I cleaned out my registry, and I have tried Activision's suggestion of setting my desktop to 800x600 with 32-bit color. I have no CD-burning or copying software other than Roxio on my system at a... Read more
