Sure it can; just like Vista/7, you can still run legacy DX9 titles provided you update to the latest version.

Now, the game may crash for other reasons, but DX9 apps are fully compatible.

Mmmm... i mean games :D

lot of my games on windows 10 (I'm a windows 10 user, so i experienced by myself) are constantly crashes without exact reason. But, yeah DX9 apps are fully compatible.

You can try "windows xp compatibility mode" located at properties > compatibility tab.
See if it can solve your problem.

What is your graphics card model and make?

If this worked before you installed 10, check for drivers for your system from the laptop vendor. If you have never tried that game before, check the requirements for it and see if your onboard video hardware can run it.
