D3DERR_NOTAVAILABLE error. How do I fix it?

I’m trying to play “Batman: Arkham Asylum”. I bought it on Steam and haven’t played it yet. I downloaded it and, apparently, it was successfully installed.

However, every time I try to start the game I get a message box stating D3DERR_NOTAVAILABLE.

  • GTA IV - Out of Commission - Helicopter bug
  • Which is better for a Gaming PC Graphics Card - more RAM, or faster GPU?
  • What are the equivalent PC keyboard keys and mouse buttons of the Xbox 360 game controller buttons shown on the screen?
  • What are the cryptic Steam Super Meat Boy achievements and what do the names mean?
  • What should I do when a hacker gives me hacked money?
  • Low Rider Challenge
  • I’m running Windows 8.1 (when I installed the game, I had Win8, but I never started the game. Last night I updated to Win8.1 and then tried to run the game). I have all Windows Updates installed. I have Direct X 11 installed.

  • Is it possible to get the Saitek X45 working with Windows 8.1 64bit?
  • Is Braid on PS3/PC different in any way? Is there a definitive choice?
  • Game Won't Launch from CD
  • The HUD is gone / mispositioned?
  • Reorder action keys?
  • How do I get my Xbox 360 Controller to work with Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition?

    It may be a steam failure, try to verify the cache. If it didn’t help you probaly need to contact steam.
    I also had the failure on some off my own game’s but that was a cache issue.
