    When you Sis graphics, do you mean a Sis graphic card, ie PCI or AGP, or do you mean 'onboard' as in integrated with the motherboard? If onboard that could be your problem as many games require the better faster agp or pci versions. Also, which games are giving you grief? And what OS are you using.
    If you do have a card then are you using the correct video mode for the game, ie Open GL or Direct3d etc etc.
    Might also be a driver issue. Have you updated to the latest?
    Hope you get it sorted...come play HL, hehehe :cool:

    Only one of the windows updates causes problems.... stay away from Service Pack 1.

    Would be interested in hearing why they won't play and which don't play. Do they load at all? Do you hear sound but no graphics or vice versa? Bad graphics? Crash? Does Solitaire run but not RTCW?

    Update all your vid card's drivers to the latest. Also, run dxdiag to spot for any errors that might be related to this.
