|A while back my monitor broke down, and with it, a lot of applications (read: games.) started to refuse to run.
The monitor plain up broke, which I figured out after a while of trial and error, since, at first I thought it was the graphics card. First I switched graphics card to an old one, which did nothing, and then I plugged in my netbook to the monitor with the same results. (Red lines vertically on the monitor screen.) And, well, it obviously works fine now when I got my new monitor.
However, application support has not returned with the new screen... Most of them seem to have issues detecting a graphics card or getting it to do what they want. (And crashes during startup with various error messages. I can provide a few if needed.) I'm unsure what the issue is myself, it seems highly sceptical that both the monitor and my graphics card broke down on the same time. (Not to mention, the graphics card is pretty darn new.) ATM I'm highly considering that the issue might have come from when I switched graphics cards while I was trying to pinpoint the issue, and that there is some software fuckery causing this.
My current graphics card is of the Radeon HD 7700 series, where as the old one I ploped in was an really old geforce 405 ().
Edit: It's probably directx, actually, which is integrated in Win 7! (lovely!)
I'm not even sure how to bloody fix it considering the following:
