--------------------------------------------------------------------- When trying to start Lego Star Wars I receive an error stating "Failed to created d3d device.Application will now exit." There are 2 possible causes for this error to occur. If you are running an video card which does not support Hardware Transform and Lighting (Tn L) or Pixel Shader v1.1, then Lego Star Wars will not run.All indications from NVIDIA, prior Eidos Postings, and from the LEGOs Star Wars II game itsself suggested that an FX series game should be adequate and support Pixel Shader 1.1.

Sorry, but your machine is unable to run this game.
Once you get that card make sure you follow these directions about your driver version, because even with a compatible card the newest nvidia drivers 77.72 cause it to give a d3d error.
See this article below regarding the nvidia ver 77.72 driver.
We require a graphics card which can support vertex and pixel shader v1.1.
The game will now exit." i tried 3d analyze but something went wrong could use some help from you guys :(None of the Nvidia MX line cards will work.
