Games keep crashing...

Various 3d games are crashing on me would directx be the problem?

I've got a laptop that is:
Vista Home Premium 32bit (6.0, Build 6000)
Intel Core 2 at 1.73GHz
2GB RAM
Mobile Intel(R) 945GM/GU Express Chipset Family (Intel GMA 950)
When i go under DXdiag it says i'm running directx 10 (which i think intel
doesn't support yet)
My specs are well above the requirements for the games but some have low
framerates or just all of a sudden crash and close without any dialog
indicating an error (while nothing else other than that game crashes).

My husband and I are running the newest games out right now. Vanguard, Lord
of the Rings Online, other games. The best think to do is go on the forums
for the game that you have and read the posts about running them on Vista.
They'll have different things you can do to make it run on Vista.

Try updating video drivers.

The same thing was happening when I bought a nVidia "made for Vista" video
card.
Stopped when I got new drivers.
