    Ok, whenever I go into one of my games it freezes, doesn't do anything but put a little white dot in the far upper left corner. However, when I change my graphics acceleration down to none or one before none it works but way too slow to even play (like 1 step ever 5 seconds) I have tried downloading new drivers for my videocard but that didn't work, I upgraded my RAM as well. This has happened with three games so I am pretty sure it is my computer that has the problem.
    I also put my dxdiag information in here as well.
    Please Help

    I would suggest changing over to standard vga, then reinstall your display drivers and directx.

    Go to start/settings/control panel/display/settings/advanced button/adapter tab/change/follow prompts until you see a check box that says show all compatible, check that, you will see a list, scroll all the way to the top, select standard vga, follow prompts and reboot. Graphics will look terrible, that's normal. Now reinstall your video drivers and reboot, then go to windows update and reinstall your directx, it should because your one version behind.
    If not get directx here www.microsoft.com/directx

    download a new set of video drivers, something wrong with those

    try these
    TNT/GeForce Reference Windows 9x/ME-driver, version 22.80
    w9x-2280.zip (2.79M) - 6 November, 2001
    http://www.reactorcritical.com/files/NVidia/w9x-2280.zip

    Change to std vga again
    these drivers are zipped, unzip to a folder, when changing browse to folder and select the .inf file

    Are the games all d3d or opengl also.
    Are you using control alt delete to end task on everything running in the back ground.
