Omen 17 can't play game

HP Recommended
OMEN by HP 17-cb0050nr
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)


I have a new Omen 17 gaming laptop. I purchased a game with the following recommended and minimum requirements:


Windows 7 SP2 and Higher


Intel i3


NVIDIA GeForce GT 630


4GB Ram



Windows 10


Intel Core i5-4690


NVIDIA GeForce GTX 670


6GB Ram


Each time that I open the game I receive the following error message:

Msg: Can't initialize 3D acceleration. Failed to create device, no d3d11

support: 0x887a0004

File: 1130

Computer: LAPTOP-09DOL2ED

This is an unofficial build. base\run.cpp compiled Nov 19 2019


I have done the following to fix the issue:

  1. Run all troubleshooting on the drives
  2. I have confirmed that my DirectX (Version 12) is up-to-date and confirmed that Direct3D Acceleration is "Enabled"
  3. I have made sure that the graphics card drive is updated
  4. I have reinstalled Visual C++ Redistributables

None of these potential solutions have fixed the issue. I don't know what I can do to get the game to work. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
