You can fix your direct x error by doing this simple steps for your computer.Make sure that you have the latest version of direct x on your computer.If not you can easily download the latest version of direct x on Microsoft official website and just install it on your computer. If you have already installed direct x on your computer you need to test it that its working properly and you don't have any problems running it on your computer.

First go to desktop then right click on it select properties then click the setting tab then click advanced then click the troubleshooting tab check to see if the hardware acceleration slider is running in full then click start and run then just type dxdiag in to the box and click ok, check the display tab for the direct x diagnostic tool and lastly check that all the direct X features is already enabled.

Finally don't forget to scan your windows registry for any errors.

This problem with the DirectX component of Microsoft Windows that shows incorrect physical RAM value is most of the time caused by a problem in the memory card or the actual RAM card installed on the computer and not by the DirectX program. DirectX only reports the information it gathers from the computer.

DirectX can’t fix any problem especially if it displays the wrong amount of installed RAM. The only thing you can do to make sure that DirectX is running very well is to upgrade it. By default, Microsoft Windows already includes its own version of DirectX so installing it is really not necessary not unless you want to upgrade it.

But upgrading DirectX also depends on the operating system you are using. Like if you are using Microsoft Windows XP regardless of the edition and Service Pack, you are tied to DirectX 9.0c. Here are the different versions of DirectX and the operating systems they are supporting. DirectX 9 is supported by Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, and Windows 8.

DirectX 10 is supported by Windows Vista, Windows 7, and Windows 8. DirectX 11 is supported only by Windows 7 and Windows 8. If you are using Windows Vista, there is still a way of supporting DirectX 11 by installing a so called “platform update”. To install it and visit here for 32-bit and Update for Windows Vista for x64-based Systems for the 64-bit.

To upgrade your DirectX, search the latest version of DirectX from Microsoft Download Center and then select “DirectX End-User Runtime Web Installer”. Follow the instructions to complete the installation.
