    Hey phuc,

    Try this...

    Start>My Computer>"right click on that drive">go to the Hardware Tab>"left click on the drive in the menu that you need">Click Properties>Click the Driver Tab>and then go to Driver Update.

    That should be all you need...if it doesn't work, it means that you have the current drivers associated with it.

    Hope this helps.

    ;)

    look this is what it show and said

    (the software you are installing has not passes window logo testing to verify its compatibility with window xp.

    this software will not be installed. contact your system administrator.)

    And so the plot thickens...

    Um...are you installing this stuff on a network system or is this your OWN personal computer?

    Cause if it is, you shouldn't getting a System Administrator warning like that.

    Ok...Ok...Now we are getting somewhere...

    Are you trying to install it through the game or though Microsoft's website?

    Try this...

    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...4e-b4be-4135-95f8-ecfcf9182431&displaylang=en

    This is DirectX 9.0c

    after that, get this...

    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...33-06e9-47ba-914a-844575031b81&displaylang=en

    This is the SDK update, came out in February, this year, as you can see.

    Next, restart the computer and then do this:

    Start>Run>type "dxdiag">click "OK"

    Run all the DirectX Test to make sure everything is working properly.

    After all that...install the game and it should be fine.

    Hope this helps you.

    ;)

    Sounds to me like a graphics problem...

    I am going to take a quick look at it and see what I can find.
