    ***Need Help Please - Bad Image Error 0xc000012f


    Thank you for taking the time to read this. Recently, I installed a GeForce 8400 gs on a Acer Aspire xc600.

    After updating drivers and what not I received this error message when TRYING to log on my game.

    c:\windowns\system32\nvd3dum.dll is either not designed to run on windows or it contains an error. try installing the program again using the original instillation media or contact your system administrator or the software vendor for support. Error status 0xc000012f.

    (The top of this error box says) archeage.exe - bad image

    I am an amateur and am not sure where to go from here but I have tried a few things that are listed below. These are not in order.

    Ccleaner general scan and registry fixer
    cmdprompt - sfc/scannow (am a little confused on how to exactly use dism to repair specific items/files
    Uninstalled my whole game and re-installed
    updated available windows updates
    and maybe 1 or two other things I cannot think of off the top of my head.

    Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. I am ready to start slaying some monsters!

    What is the difference between scan health and check health? Do I need to do all of these? If so, in what order?
