Is there some way to reinstall Direct X 11?
I'm not sure, but maybe my Direct X 11 was corrupted somewhere along the way.



I guess rather than lag, I'd say stuttering or jerking. Everything...

I will give that a try, but I'm not sure of how it will work. I've tried using the installer for Direct X (the one that's 286 KB or so) and it's always told me that my Direct X is up to date, etc.
