GRLevel3 uses your graphics hardware more than most applications. It accesses the
hardware through DirectX 9. The latest version of DirectX is available at Microsoft's
      Microsoft DirectX
It's also recommended that you download and install the latest drivers for your video

Common problems running GRLevel3 are:
   "d3d9.dll not found" -- you need to install DirectX9
   "Unable to create DirectX9 device" -- usually due to having a 24 bit desktop,
    switch to a 16 or 32 bit desktop

Go to the GRLevel3 support forums for more help.
