    My games won't play or download. I get error message: Failed to initialize window. Please try running the game again. If that doesn't help, try changing the screen resolution and color depth.

    I have tried everything I can to change the resolution and color depth and nothing works. I was playing my games just fine when I accidentally changed something. Now I have uninstalled all my games and when I try to redownload I get the same error message. Please help.

    It's terrible you lost your games like that, but I guess I don't understand the issue. You were getting this error before you uninstalled, and now your getting it again, 'just because' you attempt to download them? (Or is it)When you try to instal them?.. When you try to launch them the first time after installing them? Are you using Steam or another download utility?

    I'd like to try to help, but I'll need a bit more of a description of the problem.
