    When you type in all capitals it is as if you are shouting and it makes it hard to read. Have you attempted to uninstall your games and do a fresh re-install? Sometimes that is all it takes. Also, when installing I would shut-down any anti-virus, firewall, and spysweeper programs you have running in the background. See if the games can be played. Don't forget to enable your anti-vi, etc.

    Also, what video card do you have and can you tell us your DirctX version?

    In addition to what Route44 has suggested, i would also suggest you try and re-install the latest DirectX drivers for your computer (9.0c if you're using Windows XP) as sometimes a faulty .dll file in the DirectX files can cause a world of truble for some games but not others..

    I really hope that you're not using an onboard video card... If so, it's time for a new card $$$.....
