I get the following error, I googled it but it didn't turned up much....
"The procedure entry point DetectReadPciSlotInformation could not be located int the dynamic link library netdetect.dll"
What can I do to fix that?

When tryin to open this eumlator that I have I also that an error from DirectX about "D3D_INVALIDCALL"

There is nothing out in the device listing... no yellow question mark beside my video driver. And how do I fnid out the name of my video card so I can search for the drivers if I need 2 again.... plz help :confused:

Sounds like a graphics card driver problem to me or an incompatibility with the version of DirectX you have and your graphics card. Your graphics card's model and manurfacturer should be under display adaptors in device manager...if it isn' t then I don't know why :confused: :)

Hi,

Why don't you try reinstalling your Graphics adapter? If you can open up your PC, (don't know if you're allowed), you can get the name of the graphics adapter. It's usually written on it.

If it is onboard then you can just reinstall the drivers straight off your driver cd which came with your pc. However do dell do that? it might all be in with the recovery software :eek:

Erm if you can't find the CD then you can probably get them of dell's website ;)
