3D Acceleration


G

Guest

When I try to run World of Warcraft I get the following error:
WoW was unable to start 3D acceleration. Please make sure DirectX 9.0c is
installed and your video drivers are up to date.
I do have 9.0c and as far as I can tell, the video drivers are current. Is
there a way to turn on 3D acceleration?
I am using Windows XP with SP2 I have an nVidia graphics card on a Toshiba
Tablet.

Hi NCBlaise,

Lets run a diagnostic of your system to see if we can pinpoint the problem.

In order to Create a dxdiag.txt file: Click Start / Run / type: DXDIAG
Click the "Test" buttons in the Display, Sound, Music & Network Tabs;
Afterwards click the "Save All Information..." button in the bottom row.

Open the file and copy/paste everything up to this section in your reply:

I've had the same problem, turn off 3D acceration, apply that, then
turn it back on. That should work.

Is your video card in the list of supported video cards for WoW?
