I keep getting the above error after reformatting my PC, I had game maker 8 and studio running on the same exact PC before formatting, no hardware changes have been made. What is going on?

You don't have the proper video driver, probably the generic Microsoft one.

Ensure you install the video driver specific to your graphics adapter, it's updated and set to hardware accelerated.
