Hey sexyizrod4e,

Can you post a screenshot of the error message? That way is easier to figure out what could be happening.

Thanks!

"Could not load direct3d" may have multiple issues:
* Lack of a graphics card driver. Download the one that fits your graphics card here:
nVidia (http://www.nvidia.de/Download/indexsg.aspx?lang=en)
AMD/ATI (http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/Pages/index.aspx)

* Missing Direct3D9 libraries:
load them here (http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=35)
Note: LoL uses DirectX9, so it needs the newest DX9 libraries. It cannot replace them with DX10 or DX11 libs as the entry points differ. This means that you have to load DX9.0 even if you have DX10 or DX11.
