This issue can occur if DirectX is corrupt, your video adapter does not meet the minimum requirements, or your monitor is set as unknown or default.

Check the Amount of Video Memory

Click Start, and then click Run.

In the Open box, type C:\Program Files\DirectX\Setup\Dxdiag.exe, and then click OK.

Click the Display (or Display 1, if present) tab.

If fewer than 4 megabytes (MB) of video memory are installed on your video adapter, you need to install additional video memory or install a video adapter with more memory.

Check Your Monitor Setting

Click Start, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel.

Double-click System, and then click the Device Manager tab.

Click the plus sign next to Monitors.

If there is more than one monitor listed, make sure that the selected monitor is the same as the monitor that you are using.
