Default Need for Speed Direct x issue

Ok i go to install Need for Speed Most Wanted and during install it says install direct x 9.0c to continue setup. So i do this by redistrobutional install and no go says same thing. I then get it by microsoft.com and no go still. I go and get direct x from nfs install and still no go. Ive rebooted after each install and it still wont work. All it says is please install direct x 9.0c to continue setup. What do i do?!?!?

All it says is continue setup and then you hit ok and nothing happens? Does the setup close or sit there or what?
