Windows Vista games running in software rendering mode

    I am having the same problem as others purchasing a brand new system and
    32-bit Vista OS in that the standard games that came with Vista are running
    in software rendering mode, which results in them playing extremely slow (eg
    moving a card in solitaire takes 1-2 seconds). The system also identifies a
    base number of 1.0 for games, and requires 2.0 to play them adequately.

    My systems specs are:
    Intel E7200 2.53 GHz
    500GB HD
    512 MB Nvidia 8800
    3BG DDR2 RAM

    My system is only 2 weeks old, and this is really frustrating because the
    scores for everything else the system does are at least 5.4.

    Can anybody assist with how I can change the system to not run in software
    rendering mode, or with any other suggestions.

    Thanks in advance

    Susan
