Hi, I needed help in solving this problem. I was playing Heroes of Newerth when suddenly I lost the game. When I reconnected, this error d3d_create: devicecreate() failed fatal error pops up. I tried checked using AVG PC tuneup about this error and it says that the driver was incorrect and that i have to update my driver. My graphics card is NVIDIA Geforce 8500 GT. I tried getting the latest version of this online at nvidia.com. When I installed it and restarted the pc, it still doesnt work. Everything works fine before but it just happened recently. I also tried uninstalling and reinstalling this but the same error pops-up. It's not only on this game. Any other game which I believe is "heavy" would not work. I appreciate if this would be resolved without me having to buy a new one. Thanks. :wave: By the way, my OS is Windows XP.
