World of Warcraft was unable to start up 3D acceleration

I have another issue with the game. The game now opens perfectly and I can play it, but after a while, it crashes and a window pops up with the following message:

“World of Warcraft was unable to start up 3D acceleration”

I have already checked for updates and checked the “Disable fullscreen optimizations” box in the properties of the WoW launcher (not Everlook).


You should update your graphics card driver. Judging from the two issues you’ve submitted, it’s highly likely that all your problems stem from your operating system and driver issues.

You can try updating the graphics card driver first. If there are still other minor issues, it is recommended to use some software to check and resolve the issues with the operating system and drivers, or consider reinstalling them.
