Re:Ddhelp error?

this usually means your video drivers are corrupted. you should reinstall your video drivers. after that, you need to run DXDIAG and have it test your complete DirectX setup. you may have to remove all your video drivers from your system, reinstall the ones for your video card, and then reinstall DirectX if this doesn't work.

It sounds like bad driver install

try removing your video drivers and reinstalling them , if this doesnt work you may want to try reducing your hardware acceleration start/settings/control panel/system performance tab and click graphic reduce it by 1 at a time. Hope this helps
