I'm playing True Crime New York City on windows xp and every time I'm trying to play the screen goes black and then I'm back at my desk.

Whenever I try to play True Crime New york city for windows XP it is closes its doors after the theatrics start and gives me an error saying the file d3d9.dll has stopped working or the screen goes black and then then I know you left the game back and I'm at my desk again.

Hello Respect137, welcome.

It would appear that running DirectX files installed on your system were corrupt. This gives a test:
2 follow the instructions which is there to install the package to update DirectX
3. Once installed, restart your computer and try to run the game
Let us know if this helps,
Thank you!

  • Re: Satellite L350 - screen goes black when I try to play

    I have a laptop Toshiba L350 Sat. Its currently running on Windows Vista. Caused by a virus, I recently had to reinstall Windows. The laptop is now free from virus.

    My problem is that when I try to play some games that I have the screen goes black and I have to do a forced restart using the power button. There are no other noise running in the background, and Ctrl alt del does not work either.

    Is or has anyone else suffered from this problem and if so how they remedy? I'll try to re-installthe drivers when I get home this morning, but I can't think of anything that could be the cause of the problem...

    Any help would be appreciated

    In addition, you can try to clean your laptop using a jet of compressed air. This could blow the dust of fans cooling and, therefore, it of not necessary to disassemble the laptop.

    Two invites on 1 page in Indesign that when exporting to adobe reader in pdf format, I can simply add new names that populate both copies and then be printable. Any help out there is how to make an invitation in Indesign, but now how to make 2 copies on a single page that someone else ie the customer can add their own names. So each field name must complete on both guest. Sounds simple, but is not really there to help. I think he called an interactive pdf. Thanks in advance.
