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?

if you right click "my computer" \ properties then open device manager from the list on the left are there any exclamation marks next to any devices ?

Here is the picture of my system information: http://img109.imageshack.us/img109/6551/86603204.png
And here is some picture of my graphics card information: http://img7.imageshack.us/img7/8108/47344637.png
NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT is the name of my graphics card :)
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:
