I have a Dell Inspiron N5110 with 6gb Ram, Nvidia Geforce 525m GT 2gb memory. I have been having a real bad issue with the GPU.
I am sure all my drivers are upgraded and I have the latest Direct X. The problem is that when I run the latest games on my laptop it always displays an error about the Direct X. It says that my GPU does not support Direct X 11 but I am pretty sure it does because I used to run the same games in Windows 7 without a single problem from the GPU.
e.g I just installed Crysis 3 on windows 8, I ran it and it showed that my GPU does not support Direct X 11. But I used to play the same game in Windows 7 without a difficulty and with the same specs. The same is with other heavy games that use Direct X 10 or 11 (of course they show different errors but all point to the same problem.) It's been quite the headache and I have looked everywhere.
I checked my Dxdiag and it showed that Direct X 11 was installed. I also checked the Nvidia Control panel and it also showed that the latest Direct X was present. Please I will be very thankful if somebody helps me with this problem, I am sure I am not the only one. I would be very grateful if the Dell community would give this matter some attention.
