    I recently got a new computer just to have my favorite games on it. However, after fixing several small problems, any game I download either cannot find directX 9, or 11, or it goes straight to BSOD. This has also started to happen when I start firefox. The computer cost around a grand, and I'd really not like to send it back if I can fix the problem by myself, please help.

    Welcome to TSG! (y)

    What were the problems you fixed? and how did you fix them? They may shed a clue on what is happening.
    Have you tried reinstalling Direct X and updating/reinstalling your video drivers? You might need to do a "clean" install of the vid drivers.
