Default Can't Play Games: DirectX Unrecoverable Error

Hi HWC,

I have a massive problem. I can't play any games at all.
All it says is that Direct X encountered an unrecoverable error.

All my other games don't work either ie: Flatout 2
I'm using Vista 32Bit Ultimate.

Just ~30 mins ago, the Vista Aero turned off...



Help PLZ!!!

Vista is dx10.

Run DXdiag.exe (from the run command box) and see what it reports.
