    Graphics Card DirectX Issue

    I have been trying to play Civilization 5 (an older game, I know, but it works fine on my Windows 10 laptop) and it keeps crashing on my Windows 10 desktop. Noticing that it runs in DirectX 9 mode fine and only crashes in DirectX 10/11 mode, I decided to look at my system's DxDiag file. Turns out, DxDiag is stating that my graphics card driver is from November 2015.

    I have an nVidia Gefore 760, and I have actually ran the Geforce Experience software several times and my drivers are listed as up-to-date. The Gefore Experience software states that my graphics card driver is from December 2015. Why would DxDiag return a different date? Is DirectX 12 not recognizing my latest graphics card driver install? Is there a way to fix this that doesn't involve completely reinstalling Windows 10?

    You can install DirectX 9 alongside the ones that come with Windows 10. Give that a try and see if it helps.

    I can already run my game in DirectX 9 mode as it is. I would like to be able to use it in DirectX 10/11 mode.
