I've just bought a new pc which unfortunately came with Vista. I wiped it clean an put back on windows xp ran all the update, sp 3 etc... When i try to run a game it just wont initialise, it wont launch or anythning. Microsoft suggested it could be a win32 virus but have run every virus scan i can get my hands on and none of them have found anything. Does anyone know what would cause this?

Could be a driver problem, did you get the right XP ones for your motherboard etc.
