    Could there be something wrong with your OS installation or settings?
    I remember I used to get such problems with games because I once installed windows XP on FAT32..

    Since the same Dell model can have different configurations, what are yours exactly? The reason I ask is your PC might not meet the minimum game requirements despite your statement that it does. For example, the basic Dell 3100 comes with integrated graphics. If you are using Intel integrated graphics, it likely does not support DirectX 9.0c even though you installed it. It also may not support Transform and Lighting which most newer games require even though they don't always say so on the box.
