Solution: Google Earth: ‘DirectX’ mode not supported

I’ve been using Google Earth on various computers and laptops until i installed Google Earth on Fujitsu Lifebook S6421. The problem doesn’t lie in the proper drivers that are not installed or directx 9.0c. It should also affect: Fujitsu Lifebook S6421BW, S6420WS.

I even went to install DirectX 10 on my Windows XP. But it still fails.

Solution:
- Start -> Settings -> Control Panel -> Display -> Settings tab
- Click ‘Advanced’ button, ‘Troubleshoot’ tab
- Under ‘Hardware acceleration’
- Move the lever to Full
- Check ‘Enable write combining’
- Press ‘Ok’

Now try Google Earth again!

    I decreased the level of hardware acceleration a few days ago and forgot about it. So, I changed it back to “Full” and it worked. Thanks!!

    None of the suggestions on this page worked for me. Google Earth still won’t launch. Still shows “Direct X mode not supported”.

    Thank you! This was probably the sixth thing I tried and it was the first that worked!
