I have gotten the same note. I have a GeForce GTX 260M. Sometimes i get thrown out of games and being told to upgrade my Graphic card. I have updated it with the right update and i still get the message.

Hi,

If you're been getting this message:

An unknown DirectX error has occurred. Please make sure your video card supports shader model 2.0 and that it is using drivers from the manufacture.

Yes, it is missing the last r in manufactureR.

Try these solutions (all credit goes to DavieB of the support staff):

The most common solution is to update your video card drivers.
Confirm that Video Card Drivers Up to date:
http://support.leagueoflegends.com/e...o-card-drivers

However there are several other fixes I would like you to try.

Update DirectX:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/e...a-9b6652cd92a3

Disable your Anti-Virus.

Disable any programs that use an overlay. (ex. Xfire, Mumble, Ventrilo)

In Game Settings:
Shadows: No Shadow (unless you are sure you have a dedicated(not integrated) graphics card)
V-Sync: Change it
Fast Terrain: Disable
Frame Rate Cap: Stable
Resolution: Make sure your game resolution matches your desktop resolution and that you are running in Fullscreen mode.

To determine your desktop resolution:
Right click your desktop background
Select Properties (or Personalize in Windows Vista and Windows 7)
Select the Settings tab
Your desktop resolution is listed under Screen Resolution.

If the issue persists please don't hesitate to contact me again and we can try to further pinpoint your issue. In order to provide you with the quickest solution, I will need two pieces of information:

1) A DxDiag
How to get a DxDiag: http://support.leagueoflegends.com/e...stic-or-dxdiag

2) Your most recent r3d log where you experienced the problem
Log information: http://support.leagueoflegends.com/entries/20076987



Remember though (his words): keep in mind that although this is the solution to the most common problems that cause crashing symptoms, there is no universal fix for everyone since there are many things that can cause this same problem. So just make sure to mention that if this doesn't do it for them they can also feel free to write in at this URL:

Hope this helps SOMEONE!
That may be able to assist you.
