    Re: HELP: error 25: a critical error has occured while initializing direct 3d

    you need to install/update your video driver

    to see what kind of card it has
    start -> run/search -> dxdiag [enter] -> display tab
    card name and mfg should be listed

    if its says nvidia or geforce go here
    http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us

    if it says ati or radeon go here
    http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/Pages/index.aspx

    if it says intel or igp go here
    http://downloadcenter.intel.com/default.aspx?iid=subhdr+dnlds_drivers

    if it says generic
    post your motherboard or computer mfg/model

    ...and if that does not work, start using the glide wrapper found here.
    Heck, you should use it anyways!
