Hi guys,

I'm having problem with direct x 9.0a (my guess).

When i try to run this game called BloodRayne on my
windows xp, it gives me this error message.

A box pop up with the title DirectX8 3D Driver error and
in the box the message goes like this,

DirectX error
Code:8876086A
Description:This device does not support the queried
technique. While trying to do this. Reset the device.

Then i press the ok button and it just won't execute my
game. Is that the problem with directX 9.0a?

FYI,i've a game called Fung Wan Online which runs
perfectly using the directX 9.0a. So could it be the
BloodRayne giving me the problem. Pls help.

Thanks
Chris

I run it perfectly with Windows Xp, dirrect X 9.0a, but i have a Ati Radeon
9700 graphic card that fully support Direct X9, so it might be your graphic
card dos'nt support all features in Direct X 9, i know some of my friends
had the same problem and they had to use Direct X8.1 to play Bloodrayne

Try getting the very latest video drivers for your video card. Most
manufacturers publish revised video drivers, from time to time.

Glad to be of service! :-)

| Hi Chris,
|
| Try changing your "Color Quality" to 32 bit by clicking Start /
| Control Panel / Display. If the 32 bit option doesn't exist, or
| if that solution doesn't work, try the following suggestions ...
|
| Updating video card drivers can solve most gaming issues.
| Me & XP users should create a restore point before any upgrades:
| http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/p...temrestore.asp
|
| Before you update your drivers, I recommend you upgrade to DirectX 9.0a:
| http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...displaylang=en
|
| Keep any download accelerators or antivirus programs disabled.
| Here are the steps I recommend you use to update your driver:
|
| 1. To identify the make and model of your card, right click your
| Desktop, choose Properties / Settings / Advanced / Adapter.
|
| 2. Download the latest video driver for your card online, using
| http://www3.sympatico.ca/nibblesnbit...o.html#drivers
| to find the website to download from. I also have advanced
| video driver and direct X troubleshooting steps on that page.
|
| 3. Save the .exe driver (or uncompress the zip file) to a folder
| in My Documents named after the driver version number.
|
| 4. Restart the computer in Safe Mode by pressing the F8 key
| about once every second as it's rebooting to pick Safe Mode.
|
| 5. Click Start / (settings) Control Panel / System / Hardware
| Device Manager / expand +Display Adapters / right click on
| the adapter, pick "Uninstall", and click No if asked to reboot.
|
| 6. Use Control Panel / Add-Remove programs to uninstall the
| previous driver (exe)software which may have been installed.
|
| 7. Restart the computer in Safe Mode by pressing the F8 key
| about once every second as it's rebooting to pick Safe Mode.
|
| 8. If the driver is a (exe)program file, GO DIRECTLY TO step 10.
|
| 9. When Windows prompts you to install the video adapter,* click
| "Install from a list or specific location", click the "Browse" button,
| browse to the My documents folder where you saved the driver,
| click on one of the driver files to begin installation. Go to Step 11.
|
| * If Windows doesn't prompt you to install the video adapter, click
| Start / Control Panel / System / Hardware / Device Manager /
| click the + next to Display Adapters / Doubleclick the Adapter /
| Update Driver... / follow the instructions in Step 9 to install driver.
|
| 10. If / when Windows prompts you to install the video adapter, click
| "Cancel". Double click the driver program to install the new drivers..
|
| 11. After you reboot, go to Control Panel / Display / Settings and
| choose 32 bit Color Quality, and 1024x768 Screen Resolution.
|
|
| TROUBLESHOOTING:
|
| Test your drivers using DXDiag: Click Start / Run / type: DXDIAG
| Click the "Test" buttons in the Display, Sound, Music & Network Tabs;
| If any of the Display options are Disabled and you cannot Enable them,
| your most likely solution would be to update your Chipset Drivers as per:
| http://www3.sympatico.ca/nibblesnbits/Video.html#v11
|
| Along with your Video card, Sound Cards, Motherboard Chipsets,
| and Video Monitors may also require updated drivers. Even your
| motherboard's BIOS may need to be updated for compatibility with
| your Video card. These steps are listed at: http://NibblesNbitsVideo.tk
|
| The latest video drivers sometime don't work with a particular game.
| (Check the Video suggestions in the readme.txt file in your game folder/CD)
| If there's no suggestions, try an older (WHQL) driver, and/or if you still
| experience problems try a Beta driver, or even an Omega driver instead:
|
| BETA Drivers: http://download.guru3d.com/
| OMEGA Drivers: http://www.omegacorner.com/
|
| Do you have more than one video outlet on your card? If so, test the
| monitor using other outlet and disable the 2nd outlet if that doesn't help.
|
| There you have it, if you have any questions feel free to post them! :-)
