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.

There is something wrong here

Here's mine, same card, but I am running 2k

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

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