I installed dx hr on my HP PAVILLION DV 9000 laptop with winows vista sp0. i thought it'd wirk, but it crashed and said dxhr has stopped working. Same for the expansion.

If I upgraded vista to SP2 will it wirk? also, will i be able to use DX11 on vista? Thanks!

Ooh, sorry, another Q! I have win vista sp0 and I wanna up it to 2. Will i need sp1 or can i go directly for 2?

You must have Vista SP1 installed in order to install SP2.
Installing SP2 will give you Direct3D 11.
I don't think Deus Ex requires Vista SP2 and it's supposed to work in Vista. That said, using Vista SP0 is a terrible idea and you should patch it ASAP.

Those specs,....dude get a custom built PC Asap, you can build for cheap nowadays and even a modest pc will blow that away. Heat in laptops is a issue as well.
