I have a huge problem with Warcraft III on my laptop. When I installed it, nothing out of the ordinary happened, except the fact that DirectX 8.1 could not be installed. I just thought it was a problem with the disc that wouldn't allow it to install, so I wen tot the Microsoft homepage and downloaded DirectX 9.0c. I installed it and then tried Warcraft III. This is what appeared when I started Warcraft III word for word, [COLOR=Red]"Warcraft III was unable to initialize Direct X. Please ensure you have Direct X 8.1 or newer installed and that your display drivers are current."[/COLOR] When I tried the map editor for Warcraft III, it came up with an error window with the same thing, except it told me to also try changing my color display to 16-bit or 24-bit. Please help me with my problems. I feel like an idiot with this problem, lol. :confused:

How do I find out how many mega-bytes my display drivers are and if they are up-to-date?
