Avast ate it and never gave it back. Like some magic trick! :-o

I actually don't know what 4 k is, sorry. But I can tell you it was a HP Pavilion 23 xi (23 inches) with a VGA connection. This one is a HP 22 f (22 inches) with a HDMI connection. That's all I can say. Wait, I can also tell you I think there are newer 23 xi models but mine was a few years old already.

It now tells me "Failed to setup DirectX". My PC, according to the diagnostic tool told me it had DirectX 12. Still, if I searched for it in the search space nothing would appear for DirectX. So, I downloaded it from Microsoft's page. It still can't find it within the search function and I still get that message if I try to start the game. It's a mess. Maybe someone can make some sense out of it...

Yes. Dxdiag tells me there is DirectX 12 and that there are no issues. Weird, I think.

Hmm... Never saw it. I may have checked diagonally but I'm not a member. I just performed google searches.

Sent from my cell phone/mobile etc.

Didn't remember that thread, sorry.

http://forum.trle.net/search.php?keywords=DirectX
not sure about you can see this
https://www.tombraiderforums.com/search ... id=1993912

you should also try to update drivers from this page
if you haven't done it
i suppose that it was
this pc you bought https://www.worten.pt/informatica/compu ... np-6629348
that's where the this link goes to
https://support.hp.com/my-en/drivers/se ... l/22296875

another thing if you don't have a graphic card in the pc
can you then use it with a monitor
aka are there a slot for the monitor
like a hdmi or dvi
then you shall probably turn of the onboard graphic in bios

@ vimmers and Jeff: thank you so much for all the help you've provided.

Quote from Lore Raider (on the other thread): "As I wrote to you on another thread, the DirectX error is caused by using "Core Design MMX etc..." option in output settings of the setup, using the other, " Microsoft Hardware.." should fix the issue"

Case solved. It now works. Now, why don't these things come with a tutorial? Lol.

Many thanks again. We're a communty and we help each other, that's how it must be. Thank you. :2thumbsup:
