How come I get DIRECT X ERROR DDERR_GENERIC when trying to run SWAT 3?

by on August 13, 2010

Q: I have recently installed SWAT 3 on my Windows Vista laptop. I can install the game fine, but when I load the game, an error message comes up saying “DIRECT X ERROR DDERR_GENERIC”. I have absolutely no idea what this means or what to do about it. Please do not start talking about graphics cards etc. because I will have no clue of what you are saying. Help would be very much appreciated.
