    do any games run ?

    what does windows experience index give you ?
    (right click my computer and run the WEI)

    do you have all (needed) versions of direct x installed ?
    (run dxdiag)

    Experience tool gives me total grade 1.0, and all other stats are normal but graphic and gaming graphic are 1.0, and when I run DirectX Diagnostic tool, then he says no problems were detected but "DirectX features": DirectDraw Acceleration, Direct3D acceleration, AGP texture acceleration all of them are not available, can this be the answer?

    I believe there are lot's of people experiencing problems installing drivers with the Nvidia GeForce 8600M GT integrated graphics cards ...........

    your spec says you have a Dell XPS M1530 notebook , with a 2gig CPU and 4 gig ram and a 32 bit operating system

    try going to the dell website and enter your service tag , pick your model (XPS M1530) and login to get access to all the drivers, download and install the graphics card drivers for your NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT , then let us know how it went and if it worked :cool:
