tHello i just bought a new ideaPad y470,
it comes with a directX 11, but in the Display tab in the directx diagnostics tool
the ddi version is 10.1
so i cant run 3dmark benchmark .....
I've tried to use microsoft support http://support.microsoft.com/kb/975243 but when i try to use the hoftix installation, it gives me a message that the installation isn't applicable to my computer

guessing you are talking about windows 7?
ups u do...
this is a common problem. even MS does not know which ddi version is currently supported on the installed hardware - therfore a hack is needed to fix that.

it is like fixing the msreg settings to its real settings - means in fact binary hacking - if u know how to - u are glad - otherwise -. there is no solution at this point without paying for it.
amd does it by clean install, nvidia does't..
