    DirectX Kernel Diagnostic Tool - dxdiag (Windows 8.1, 8, 7 & Vista)

    DirectX Kernel Diagnostic Tool (dxdiag)

    About: DXDiag
    DirectX Diagnostic Tool helps you troubleshoot issues with the DirectX suite of multimedia technologies that comes with Windows. If you're having trouble getting game animation or a movie to run properly, you should run DirectX Diagnostic Tool to try to find the source of the problem.

    To run the DirectX Kernel Diagnostic Tool, follow these instructions:

    Bring up a Search box and type dxdiag into it; select "dxdiag.exe" -

    click for full-size image

    Go through the various tabs and see if any problems are reported.

    The System tab - (click on image for full-size image) -
    click for full-size image

    The Display tab -
    click for full-size image

    The Sound tab -
    click for full-size image

    The Input tab -
    click for full-size image

    Dxdiag Report
    You can generate a text or XML formatted DirectX Kernel Diagnostics report, which I find easier to read than the individual screens. I also use it for troubleshooting and informational purposes. It does contain a lot of helpful information like driver names, driver dates, hardware IDs, etc. . .

    To save a copy of the DirectX Kernel Diagnostics report, click on "Save All Information" -

    Direct-X diagnostics tool (DXDIAG) may report an unexpected value for the display adapters memory.
    The DirectX Diagnostics Tool incorrectly reports DirectX 11 devices as DirectX 10.1 devices on a computer that is running Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2
