A:

Unfortunately you do not state in your question what type of video card you have or the type of games that you are trying to play

There is always a possibility that the games that you are trying to play are not supported by your video card (the game is not designed to work with it) This is likey to be your problem If the card IS supported, you may need updated video drivers, updated Direct X, or an update for the game (log onto your video card manufacturers's and to the particular games websites for these updates)

I suggest your check these specs carefully against what you have in your machine, for starters Pay particular attention to your video card and Direct X version

Good Luck.
