I just received NFS Rivals in the mail today, since I preordered the disk version. I installed it, and went through everything, but when I launched the game, it came up with a DirectX error. The error is as follows: DirectX function "CreatePixelShader for (null)" failed with E_INVALIDARG ("An invalid parameter was passed to the returning function."). GPU: "Intel(R) HD Graphics 3000", Driver: Unknown
My PC specs are up to date, and they are at least at the minimum requirement. Is this error occuring because I do not have an NVidia or ATI video card?
Thanks in advance for the support.

Hi Bros, I hope this would solve the problem for people who are having secondary graphic card installed such as Nvidia, AMD, ATI etc.
Go to the My computer -> properties
Properties -> Device Manager
In Device Manager, go to Display adapters, in that right click Intel(R) HD graphics 3000 and then click disable and now run the NFS rivals and make sure that the another graphic card is enabled.

This solved for me and NFS Rivals runs perfectly.I hope this solves for U people too.

i have similar error that says "DirectX function "GetDeviceRemovedReason' failed with DXGI_ERROR_DEVICE_HUNG ("The application's device failed due to badly formed commands sent by the application. This is a design-time issue that should be Investigated and fixed.")."
just after some digging in google i have found a solution. i have 64 bits pc and the default is to run in 64. but when i run it in 32bits (x86) no error for me.
I disabled my graphic card driver and game started successfully, but after displaying intro it again showed error.So the problem is with graphic card and/or directX, but no solutions yet.
