  1. When i open my Halo PC game it seems to be working, then suddenly stops and presents an error message. [​IMG]
    I ran the troubleshooter and none of the options worked.
    I attempted to reinstall Direct X but this happened...

    (May be irrelevant) Also when i ran Halo and the error message came up it moved all of my desktop icons around.
    What is wrong?

    download the latest version of DirectX which is directx 9.c. Hopefully that'll run the game.

    If you have DX 9.0c use this patch.The name will not change.

    Did the game cd have an older Direct X and you installed it ?
    This should be ignored.Use the latest as we have suggested.Not an older game cd version.

    and i dont think it came with an older direct x on the cd...
    The game appears to work then suddenly flashes, cuts out and brings up the error message.

    try this, It might work.
    from the start menu, select run, type in dxdiag and click ok.
    over there under the display tab, enable everything if anything is disabled. and hopefully that should resolve the problem.

    Make sure that Hardware Acceleration is enabled.

    Running Direct X

    You have not indicated in any way that you ran Dxdiag as the error says.
    Please verify your version it lists.Post a SShot of that .
    Run the Display Tests.Post the saved information of those.
    Don't keep us guessing with,
    "and i dont think it came with an older direct x on the cd..."
    Read the cd contents.

    BTW,Lets forget Halo and get Direct X set properly.
    It has more to do then play Halo.
