Problem with "D3D" or "Direct3D"

Recently i bought a new monitor to my pc, his resolution was 1366 x 768, i installed the driver and everything was okay, even through i noticed the mouse was lagging a bit on the screen, the real problem started when i tried to play games, all games displayed the same error:


This started to happen when i installed my monitor driver, but the PC could run games perfectely without this monitor and its driver, so, how could this happen?
Here's a print of DirectX Diagnostic tool
(sorry for it being in portuguese)


I noticed something there, in the "modo de exib. atual" or "actual mode of exhibition" it says 32 bit, but my system is 64bit

Please help!

Hi Sapatin, Welcome to Sevenforums.

Regarding the Dxdiag, "Current display mode" or "modo de exib.atual", this 32 bit information is about RGB representation for the monitor using display drivers and nothing to do with Operating System architecture of 64 bit. So, no need to worry.

Now, have you updated DirectX? Windows 7 uses Directx 11. But, you are using onboard Intel graphic card. You can download DirectX from here.

Also, update drivers for your graphic card.

What games are you trying to play anyways?

I already have DirectX 11 on my PC, when i downloaded that it said i have the most updated version.
I already updated the graphic card driver yesterday. But the problem still persists...
Any game that i play have the same problem, however, source engine based games sometimes run, but they do not appear on the screen, i can only hear them.
Team Fortress 2 is a game that i got to work, by setting it to run in windowed mode, but it still lags... a lot...
I got a question about the graphic card driver installation, do i need to do what is said here?:

To make the driver work, you need to open up the device manager in Windows. Go the the "My Computer" icon and right-click it. When the context menu appears, click properties. From there, you should be able to open the Device manager from the left side of the window. If your having trouble finding it, then go to start and search "device manager". Click on the correct result when it appears. Once you have the device manager open, expand the "display adapters". Right click on the device and when the context menu appears, press update driver. A window will open to help you through the whole process. It will be easier if you choose to browse to the location that you save this file to. Remember to click on the .ini file because it holds the information needed to install this driver. Click next, select your driver again, and your done. It's that easy.
*this is best done under admin credentials to avoid any UAC-related issues

I might sound like a villain.
But, to play these games you need external graphic card. Your onboard card will not be able to handle them and games will lag. You need to buy a good graphic card.

For time being install latest .NET framework and see if that resolves it. Also, downloaded a trial version of Visual Studio 2012, install and check.

But the games ran perfectely well, i had around 100-140 fps with team fortress 2 or other source games, it really doesn't makes sense how a monitor driver can screw up so many things

I downloaded those programs, and the problem is still here...

EDIT:
Just found this in the manual:
