Using the Registry Editor

The Registry Editor (regedit.exe) is included in Windows to enable you to view and edit the contents of the Registry. When you open Registry Editor, you will see a window divided into two panes. The left side shows a tree with folders (see structure of the Registry above), and the right side shows the contents (values) of the currently selected folder (key).
To expand a certain branch, click on the little plus [+] on the left of any folder, or just double-click on the folder.
To display the contents of a key (folder), just click the desired key, and look at the values listed on the right side.
You can add a new key or value by selecting New from Edit menu.
You can rename any value and almost any key with the same method used to rename files; right-click on an object and click rename, or click on it twice (slowly), or just press F2 on the keyboard or by right-clicking on it, and choosing Delete.
2. Accessing and using Regedit:
• Click on Start Button
• In the search box, or Run Window, type the following:
Regedit and then press Enter.

3. Accessing and Using direct X diagnostic
You can test Microsoft DirectDraw and Direct3D on each monitor attached to your system. You can also test DirectSound on each wave output device, and DirectMusic on each music port.

To run DirectX Diagnostic Tool (DX Diagnostic Tools Window of Windows XP differs from Windows 7 but it does the same function):
Click on Start Button, type Run on the search box.
On the Run Window, Type dxdiag and click Ok or press Enter.

Next you will see a window with various tabs
The System tab shows information about your computer and displays a version of DirectX installed on your computer.
The DirectX Files tab shows the file name and the version number of each DirectX file installed on your computer. It also shows the file names and version numbers of other files that are used by games that are running under DirectX.
The Display tab lists your current display settings, and allows you to disable DirectDraw, Direct3D, and AGP Texture Acceleration. You can also test Direcraw and Direct3D from the Display tab which will indicate that the DirectX Graphics runtime files are installed and operating correctly. It will also display your device’s available memory and can tell you if your video driver has passed Microsoft’s Windows Hardware Quality Labs testing standard. The DirectX Diagnostic Tool, however, cannot report memory that is in use at the time that it starts and you may see less memory reported than your video card actually has.
The Sound tab displays your current audio settings and allows you to test DirectSound. It will tell you if the audio driver assigned, meaning it has passed Microsoft’s windows Hardware Quality Labs testing standard. The Hardware Sound Acceleration Level slider is used to correct audio glitches that might be caused by some audio drivers. You can adjust the slider settings and see if it provides better features of your system. If the tool detects a problem with your sound settings, a warning message is displayed in the Notes box.
The Music tab displays your current MIDI settings, and allows you to test the DirectMusic component of DirectX. Click on the Test DirectMusic button to perform the test. If the DirectX Diagnostic Tool detects problem with DirectMusic, a warning message is displayed in the Notes box.

Figure 16. Input Tab of DX Diagnostic Tool

The Input Tab lists the input devices connected to your computer such as USB and PS2 devices. It also displays the input devices installed on your computer. If the DirectX Diagnostic Tool detects a problem with the input devices or an input device driver, a warning message is displayed in the Notes box

The Network tab lists the registered DirectPlay Service Providers. These are the connection methods that DirectPlay will operate across. A registry problem here can normality be resolved by reinstalling DirectX. A registry error here can normally be resolved by removing and reinstalling that application. If the DirectX Diagnostic Tool detects a problem with a DirectPlay Service Provider or Application, a warning message is displayed in the Notes box.
The More Help tab allows you to further troubleshoot problems that the other tabs could not resolve. Features include the DirectX troubleshooter, sound troubleshooter, system information tool and the override toll which override DirectDraw’s refresh rate.
