Unhappy Need help with several errors

System Stats
OS: Vista premium 64x
AMD Phenom 9550 2.2ghz quad core
ATI Radeon 4890 PCS+ OC
7 gigs DDR2 high speed
1 TB Harddrive with about 100 gigs free
650 watt psu

Atm, I cannot play any games nor even open them. Upon opening p64 i get the error:
Direct3D failed to initialize.
The default or selected video plugin is missing or invalid.

EDIT: It seems that it was able to run once i closed Crysis and Empire Total War, i cant understand why i would have to close those for this to work without errors though. Its rather strange and annoying since i generally leave games running in background. dunno how to del this thread, sry.
