Windows ME DirectX problem

By deeda ·
Hi everyone! I am having a problem with installing DirectX on my aunt's ME machine. It starts to install and gets about half way through and then locks up? I have tried installing it off the game disk that she is trying to load and also downloading both DirectX 9 and 8.0a off the internet and they all do the same? Can anyone help me with this one? She really wants to get this game installed?

Check the driver for the video card.

If it does not support DirectX 8 or 9, then you will need to upgrade her video card.

Looking at Microsoft's DirectX requirements page, does she have at least 65 MB of free hard drive space?

While not mentioned as a requirement, I would want a minimum of 128MB of RAM.
Do not install over 511MB of RAM, or you could run into Microsoft's large RAM bug.

How exactly do I check the drivers to see if they are DirectX compatible? I know that it is the video card that came with her computer and it is an HP computer. Also I know that she has played other games that has DirectX on the disk (not sure that it installed though).

Thanks for the help!
