Hi, I recently got an upgrade for my desktop and now any game excluding Rust won't startup. This only started happening after Windows 7 was reinstalled. When I launch any game, I would see the window for it (completely blank) pop up then it would minimize to the taskbar and disappear. Everything is updated and I do not have any problems with my temperature.


What I did to try to fix my problem:

Reinstalled multiple games

Tried running games in admin

Verified game caches

Updated all my drivers

Restarted multiple times

Ran multiple virus scans (malware bytes)

Reinstalled windows (again)



Below I have attached my dxdiag


Edit- I forgot to say that Warframe and League of Legends tell me to update my drivers and to restart my computer if the problem persists. LoL also tells me something about a DirectX error.
