Why doesn't DirectX work Windows 7 Ultimate

Hey there! I am Zach, I am also wondering why my DirectX 11 is not letting me select DirectDraw Direct3D and that stuff, It just says Not Available it has been like this since I reset the Laptop. It worked fine before but my reason for resetting was that the computer wouldn't function at all. I also have another question and that is why Microsoft Windows Update takes forever to find updates, I have had it open for 1 hour now and still nothing.... Ideas please ?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Hi Zach

I would Try Install DirectX 10 then update from that.

make sure your win driver update option is set to "online"

and make sure all the motherboard drivers are installed!

and connected to the internet.

good luck

Ok, both issues might even be related.

As for fixing, I would start with fixing the update process, since everything else can be fixed from there onwards. Unfortunately, windows being stuck op updating can have quite some causes. I always use the following guide to help me through the steps. Even the most stubborn stuck updaters have managed to start working again using these, though you'll need quite some patience to try them.

If you're the more inpatient kind of user, start with step 4. In my experience this fixes about 90-95% of the updating problems. Rebuilding the update base afterwards will take quite some time though, depending on how many updates are already installed on the system.
