    My emulator was working, but a few days ago it started giving this message. I dont want to use opengl because my game was laggy even with Direct3D9.

    I know you're probably thinking one of these things

    1) restart computer (tried, will try again)
    2) update direct3d (currently on v.11)
    3) update dolphin (cannot update, anything above v4.0.2 wont display any graphics because this laptop is old)
    4) update graphics driver (up to date)

    I know it worked, so there has to be a reason why it stopped working. Any suggestions?

    downgrade directx to 10 or 9.
    11 is not fully supported yet
