Thinkpad2 Direct X 10 or higher

#1 Post by aimgator » Wed Nov 12, 2014 5:49 pm


I have a thinkpad 2 running windows 8.1 pro and office 365.

I was trying to us the Power Mapping feature on Excel however I would get the following error.

"Cannot Initialize DirectX. Confirm that your hardware supports DirectX 10 or later and that you have the latest video card driver installed."

I ran diagdx and apparently I have Direct X 11.... but I guess the video card only handles directx 9--- any way to update this driver? or is this a hardware limitation? --- thanks!!!
