DirectX 11 issues

Whenever I try to play some DirectX 11 only compatible games a window comes up with the following text:
"The program can't start because d3d11.dll is missing from your computer, Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem.
Now I've tried reinstalling the game, updating my drivers and DirectX run-time and such. I've had this problem using two graphics cards now: Radeon 7770 and my newer R9 270X which I bought a few days ago. I used to be able to play these games (Hitman: Absolution, for example) but for two months is no longer lets me. It's been annoying me for quite some time and I've yet to come up with a solution.
Graphics Card: R9 270X 2GB GDDR5 OC Edition
I'm running Windows 8 64-bit

Thanks

You must put the d3d11.dll to the same folder with the game executable, I'll post more details shortly.

"Execute the sfc /scannow command to replace a missing or corrupt copy of the d3d11.dll file.

Fortunately, the d3d11.dll file is provided by Microsoft in at least some versions of Windows so the System File Checker tool (the sfc command) should restore it.

Important: This is the most likely solution to a missing or not found d3d11.dll error. Please make every effort you can to complete this step after making sure your computer isn't infected with malware."

"Windows Resource Protection could not start the repair service." is all I got from that.
