Did you try re installing direct x ?

Also install the drivers that were first installed with the laptop

Sometimes upgrading there drivers does more harm then good

try the beta driver Nvidia gave you it might be a issue with a driver you can try to re install direct x but if you talked to Nvidia they may have a better option for you

Of the OS or the drivers?

You can't re-install directx 11. It's part of the OS.

The DirectX End User Runtime are updated DX 9.0c files.

Give that a whirl. It can't hurt.

Looks like drivers. Does it happen in other games?
