      try to re-install DirectX. If the problem persists, maybe you oughta think about going down to a later version like DirectX 7.

      If updating the video driver as in answer one does not help or reinstalling or downgrading the version as in answer two, you may have to get rid of the direct x altogether and then start over. Directions for direct x install always say that uninstalling it is virtually impossible but you can go to this site to help you get the newer version off of your PC if nothing else works:
