Hey guys,

Need some help here.

Pretty sure I'm running graphics just off the harddrive (or whatever, I'm poo with computers). My Windows Experience Index gives a rating of 1.0 (the lowest) for graphics and gaming graphics.

According to the system, I am using:

processor: AMD A6-3400M APU with Radeon(tm) HD Graphics 1.40 GHz
System type: 64-bit

I downloaded AMD download manager and tried to install graphics drivers, but I don't know if it worked. I don't know how to run the AMD download manager. Anyway...

I followed this chain of events:

It took me to this:
C:\Windows\Performance\WinSAT\DataStore\2012-10-12 15.06.38.029 DWM.Assessment (Initial).WinSAT.xml

And it gave like a rundown of my PC I guess?

Inside there, I saw:

GraphicsScore>1</GraphicsScore>-<LimitsApplied>-<GraphicsScore><LimitApplied Friendly="Limiting DWM Score to 1.0 - no DX9 capability">NoDX9</LimitApplied

So I guess that this means what's causing the error is there is "no DX9 capability".

Only problem is I have no idea what that means. I tried googling but there was nothing that made sense to me.

Halp?

Nevermind, I got it. Mods can close this if they so choose.

Sorry for the preemptive thread start.
