    My girlfriend downlouded a trial of pandoras box earlier today but after a perfect install it wont start it gives the error message
    "unable to create directdraw surface Make sure directx is installed and try again"

    Wat is this ? directx is installed with windows not ?

    thats strange ... the very latest DirectX is bundled with XP

    if you go to Start > Run and type dxdiag

    a DirectX diagnostics tool should pop up in a few seconds ...

    go to the dispaly tab and see if Direct Draw is enabled ....

    theres a heap of troubleshooters etc there too...
