Could not initialize Direct3D... help?!

I can't play games because it tells me that I need to check if the latest version of DirectX is correctly installed on my system. Also make sure that this program was compiled with header files that match the installed DirectX DLLs.

So I've downloaded DirectX 11. Still doesn't work.
On dxdiag it tells me that Direct3D Acceleration is not available.
When I try to turn Hardware Acceleration to full its grey and it says: Your display drivers do not support modifying these settings.
So I can't turn it to full and it is at None right now.

I have ATI Radeon HD3200 Graphics.
Windows 7 - 64bit.

What would restoring my laptop to an earlier time do for me? Because everything worked fine until about 5 days ago and I didn't touch anything.

I would like a solution to my problem, thanks.
