It states right on the DXDiag that you are running the generic video driver, go to your Video card manufacturer's website and download the proper and current drivers for your video card.
That should solve it.

You should be able to find it in device manager.
Right click on my computer then select.... Properties/Hardware/Device Manager.
When you get there look for Display adapters and you're video card should be there.

Do you even have a separate video card, or is it just "onboard video" (integrated into the motherboard?

Tha pic is suggesting the latter, and you have not loaded the motherboard chipset drivers for it (hence the yellow "?"). You need to identify the motherboard type (its not in that display though) to get the right drivers.

Where your video connection is on the back of the PC is the best clue. If its on a card it will be on a different plane than the printer port (LPT1) or serial port, it will be at right angles indicating its on a separate card.

If all the ports are grouped longways relative to the longest dimention on the back of the PC, its on-board (and may be seriously limiting for games play)

Any chance you could tell us more about the hardware?

We are going to need more information about your hardware before we can help you so I suggest this.

Download everest free edition from here:
http://www.majorgeeks.com/download4181.html

Install the program and when you run it and go to Computer/Summary.
From the info you get let us know what Motherboard you are using and also if it says anything about your display.
