SOFTWARE/GAME errors - it's insane!

Guest

Have a PC. Well within requirements of many games - they don't work though! It worked origionally - then messed up. Manufacturers corrected the problem - but soon after it happened again:

KEEP ON REFORMATING - still keeps happening!

Strange symptoms: Some games do not work at all - non responsive icons. Some work when installed but as soon as other software is used or PC turned off i get the standard XP error report messages.
ODD - some games do work fine. Half-life for example.
Plus - i've found odd ways around it. In Age of Mythology for example by installing the manual patch before clicking the icon the game works fine!
Also - Older versions of Kazaa and Morpheus work fine but the latest ones don't. Word style apps, Music applications, some art packages and the internet works fine - but certain things like game map editors and high demand graphical programs just crash! Very odd.

This happens whenever I reformat.

Your problem sound like it is display card related. The bios error is very
common and usually can be resolved by a bios update. Sometime this error is
meaningless and causes no adverse reactions. Updating the display card
driver and lowering the acceleration settings in display properties should
be first on the list to remedy the problem. Run the DirectX Diagnostic Tool
and check for problems , Start / Run / dxdiag. Post back if more help is
needed. Jym
