I have an alienware laptop and have recently run into some strange issues when I try to run a game. I receive this message: "Failed to initialize Direct3D. Make sure you have at least DirectX 9.0c installed, have drivers for your graphics card and have not disabled 3D acceleration in display settings. InitializeEngineGraphics failed. When I run dxdaig everything looks fine. I was able to resolve the issue by uninstalling and reinstalling the device GTX Geforce 860M. It happened again about a week later, but this time I cannot resolve by reinstalling the drivers.
I should also say that I did nothing to my laptop previously. One day the games ran fine, the next day this message.
Any suggestions are appreciated. TIA.
