I've seen this issue on here before but can't find it again! There's soo many threads, sorry. "Failed to find any DirectX 9.0c compatible graphics adapters in this system! Please make sure you have a DirectX 9.0c compatible graphics adapter and have installed the latest drivers provided by the manufacturer. The application will now terminate." I'm not sure of all the information you'll need from my computer but here's some specs. I used Everest to make a report and attached it here. It's a Northgate computer and I have none of the original cds. Edit: 1/23/09 I fixed it.
