Download CPU-Z from here: CPUID - System & hardware benchmark, monitoring, reporting
and run that, it will give you info about your motherboard, cpu, ram and graphic cards.

Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit

You can find the System Manufacturer and model by running MSINFO32 and look on the summary page.

As for the driver, try the Control Panel, Programs and features, and uninstall any Nvidea or similar drivers from the list and reboot. Then install the new driver again. This should clear out any conflicts between old and newer drivers.

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit

How did it go, Skypatrol? Did you find out what was wrong?

Guess what; now I have the same problem!

I recently updated my computer’s video driver from Nvidia 275.33 to the new 285.62 for Windows 7 (64bit) as I have a Geforce 560 video card.

It all worked fine until I restarted my computer...all of a sudden my pc won’t run any games, there’s no resolution options to choose from in the game menus, and I get a “failed to initialize render” error message.

In Dxdiag it says that the Direct X components Direct Draw-acceleration plus Direct 3d and AGP texture is not available. I tried to enable them in the control panel, but there were no buttons for enabling.

I’ve tried re-installing the newest Nvidia driver twice (plus the new beta), and it only works (with Dxdiag saying the Direct X components are active) until I restart my computer, then the direct x-components turn to "not available" and nothing works once again.

I have Direct X 11, tried to download Direct X 9 in case there’d be any files missing on my pc, but it tells me it’s not necessary.

I updated all the relevant new drivers I could find, including for my chipset, that didn't help.

I did other things for a few days, that didn't help.

I did a harddisk recovery, lost all my programs and files, installed all drivers again and that didn't help.

Now I'm about to check whether my graphic card is boiled, fried or just slightly out of balance, like me.
