XWA DirectDraw issue

Hi,
I have been playing XWA on my computer for the past week or so, and as of today, i started getting this error- "DirectDraw init FAILED at 2"
the specs of the machine are as follows -
Athlon64 x2 5600+
Asus Crosshair motherboard (NVidia 590 SLI chipset -15.01 drivers)
Geforce GTX280 graphics
2gb RAM
Windows Vista x64 Ultimate

I was running 177.79 drivers for the GTX280, but now upgraded to 177.91 to try and fix problem.
I have tried running in all sorts of compatibility modes.
the problem is, it was running fine up until today.

Fixed!

dropped desktop reolution down to 1024x768, restarted XWA - worked!
BUT! - the game lost all my remapped joystick buttons, graphics settings etc...
bumped desktop up to 1680x1050 again, and it still works like normal. any way i can export the key mapping etc to back it up? otherwise i will have to use the logitech software to do it for me.
