What is a dxdiag file? How do I send one?


The DirectX Diagnostic Tool (Dxdiag.exe) is designed to help you troubleshoot DirectX-related issues and gives detailed information regarding your computers graphics, sound and other devices related to gaming. It can be a valuable tool in determining things like hardware specifications such as for determining if your computer meets the minimum system requirements for a game.


  • It can also help determine if the drivers are up to date or need to be updated (a 'driver' is essentially the software that allows Windows to interact with and communicate with your computers hardware).
  • You can also use this tool to generate a 'dxdiag' (text) report file which has detailed information about all the items listed above and can be useful when communicating with support.
  • A Dxdiag report is the results of the execution of the DirectX Diagnostic Tool (dxdiag.exe). These results are very helpful in troubleshooting technical concerns with a computer.
