    What is the make/model of your graphics card? My best suggestion would to uninstall graphics card drivers and re-install fresh. I would do that with the Direct X also (uninstall then re-install from fresh download).

    Go to, type in: [MAKE] graphics drivers. Select your model etc from the dropdowns.

    Here is some info on DX.
