Hello, Whenever I try to boot up a steam game, it goes through the Valve logos. Then, I hear an error sound, the screen minimizes, and it tells me "Failed to create D3D device!" It procedes to give me a dead link to a support page. Can anyone help? Thanks!

D3D? I think means Direct 3D. Can you possibly Post Your Specs? (Done by going to "Run" then typing "dxdiag" then click on the Display Tab)

Try installing the latest DirectX

Download details: DirectX End-User Runtime

Also make sure you have the newest drivers for your graphics card.
