    Okay. I put up this problem before and no fix was found but I have limited options so I'll ask again. My Laptop completely refuses to run games. In the past it would allow them to make it through the starting credits and close the window when reaching the main menus and refuse to reopen the window. However, now it just refuses to open them at all. My comp sounds like its trying to for a second then just stops.

    Games I've Tried:
    Halo PC
    Half Life 2
    IMAGINE (An Online MMO downloaded from the net. No disc involved.)

    Things I've Tried:
    Restarting the comp
    System Restore
    Uninstalling the games
    Redownloading DirectX

    System Spec:
    Gateway - Laptop with AMD Turion™ X2 RM-72 Dual-Core Mobile Processor
    Model: MD2601u
    SKU: 9172655
    Run By: Windows Vista
    Graphics Card: ATI Radeon

    Thanx in advance guys.

    You do not specify which ATI Radeon you have. Make sure that your ATI Radeon is actually compatible with the games. Vista has problems with Halo PC I think.
