okay well i just got my build today after getting it ready i had it all set up i was playing games testing things out and then i was like hmmm i have this old gfx card im gonna see what it is, it turns out to be a HD 3450 i tried to play a game with it, it was terrible the APU performs sooo much better than that low profile card, but once i took out the old 3450, no games will play on the APU, some games tell me i dont have openGL some games tell me i dont have direct x, and some just freeze on start and close, all of these games worked perfectly amazing before! im guessing somehow when i plugged in that super old card the drivers it installed for it took over! and it wont let me do anything , right now im installing the beta catalyst drivers maybe that will help me 


dxdiag tells me the dx version is 11

but on the features they are all "not available"

no main drivers show or nothing!

I think you messed up the drivers somehow, you should do a clean install of them, use Driver Fusion in safe mode and after booting normally, install the drivers that you prefer again.
