    Do you have a graphics card? Not talking about intergrated. We will talk about graphics cards in a minute, Since the games your trying to play are kinda old, try runing as admin. For graphics cards, you have a intel intergrated(That sucks) and your computer and use PCI-E X16, post a topic on Audio/Video section of the forums. And how much PSU(Power Supply Unit) do you currently have?
