I get this error when I try to start Halo CE it says "There is a problem intializing Direct3D, Direct3D could be disabled. please run dxdiag" Well I check dxdiag and direct3D is enabled so i don't really know where to go from there. The regular Halo works just fine...so help?

Ok, first upate the drivers for your graphics card,

If you have an ATi card: http://www.ati.com/ If you have an nvidia card http://www.nvidia.com/page/home.html

If you have an intrigrated card(which I doubt since you play Bf2) then your screwed.

I could not find the exact issue you are talking about, but MS may have it in their tech support section
