  1. This is the first time I got this when I installed Onimusha 3
    I looked at Directx and Video and there's nothing wrong..

    Details
    Operating System: Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional (5.0, build 2195)

    DirectX version: DirectX 9.0c (4.09.0000.0904)

    Display:
    RADEON 7000 SERIES

    No problems found.
    DirectDraw test results: All tests were successful.
    Direct3D 7 test results: All tests were successful.
    Direct3D 8 test results: All tests were successful.
    Direct3D 9 test results: All tests were successful.

    Any advice?

    All I can suggest is you check the games system requirements. Particularly check for supported videocards.

    Right click on an empty part of your desktop and select properties, then settings, then the advanced buton. Click on the adapter tab. There you will see info about your graphics card.

    AGP(Accelerated Graphics Port) Is the type of slot your graphics card goes into, providing that`s what your mobo has.

    PCI-E also known as pci express is the newer slot type. Again it depends on what mobo you have. You cannot put an agp card in a pci-e slot and vise versa.

    Check your mobo manual for which type of graphics card slot it has.
