Re: pc problems help needed

After re-installing Windows XP, did you go through all the windows updates, including Service pack 2 and then service Pack 3 ?

Games need the latest Direct x but most likely when you install a game it installs the direct x for you ..

Download the latest graphics drivers, very important.

What happens when you try and run the games ?
