it is GForce Mx 440. actually i updated my computer to p4 and recover my windows insted of reinstalling it, because i have only updeted motherbord and processor and after recovering windows the problem started. before that i was useing p3 and it was working fine.

So the problem is that it doesn't like running as REF. Well to be honest, unless it is hindering your progress or something, don't worry about it.

Sounds to me like you might have a mismatch in your installation somewhere... If you've "recovered windows" it could be possible that it's messed up your actual runtimes somehow...

Try seeing what DXDIAG tells you (start menu -> Run -> "dxdiag")
