Help with Shogun 2 and others total war games

hello everyone im here to beg your help to fix a problem that has been regarding my PC since many years now.
when i try to launch total war games (ive got napoleon, empire, shogun, medieval, rome 1 (barbarian), ) through my steam account nothing happen, sometimes it pop up a window that says ''microsoft directx downloadin'' but then the window shut off but nothing happen and im not able to play. That doesnt make any sense, since many years ago i was able to play shogun without lag problems on medium-low settings and never had problem. Then one day, it random stopped working, i dont know what to do i tried every guide on every forum in the web but nothing seems work, the thing weird is that im actually still able to launch rome 1 total war and medieval, but i cant play any other game.
I have windows 7 XP
after some research it seems the problem is my directx but i dont know how fixed it, can you help me? when i try install my dirextx it says ''error occuring while downloadin, check dxsetup.log and dxerror.''
Please, i really need your help

    You may be better off posting a similar topic in the Tech forum; however, have you tried manually uninstalling and reinstalling your DirectX program?
