Hello,

I am trying to play a game and i get this message
"Direct3d could not be correctly initialized. Sometimes this will be fixed by rebooting your machine. If it still occurs after a fresh reboot, you may need to reinstall directx."

OS name: Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate
Version: 6.1.7100 Build 7100
OS manufacturer: Dell Corp
System model: Latitude D630
System type: X86-based PC
Processor Intel Core2 Duo CPU T7500 @2.2ghz, 2201 Mhz, 2 cores
Bios: dell Inc A15, 11/24/2008

I think i need to update my video driver but all it says is "Generic VGA Video Adapter" when i go to device manager so I dont know how to update it. Thanks.

try the vista drivers for your card.
also go to microsoft downloads and try downloading dx from there, they should have the latest.
I cant find the specific drivers for my card since I try to find out what my video card is and it just says Generic VGA video Adapter.

Thanks.

And i have the latest directx11.

go to the dell support page for Latitude D630 as that is the model of your laptop.
download the vista driver for the graphics card.
