Same problem. Upon executing lol.launcher.exe League of Legends splash logo displays followed by "Could not load direct3d" error--does not make it to the launcher. WinXP 32-bit, 8800GTS, latest ForceWare drivers (296.10), reinstalled DirectX 9.0c with no luck.

Thanks for that, can you please go to DXDiag, under display can you check if Direct3D Acceleration is enabled?

I rolled back my Forceware to 295.73 and it works now, so probably just a driver compatibility issue somewhere. Champerbutt try reinstalling your actual video card drivers (not DirectX drivers) also.

i have the same problem as well. when i go into dxdiag it says: Direct3D functionality not available. You should verify that the driver is a final version from the hardware manufacturer. could someone give me a link to find a new driver. all the ones i found were in effective
