Laptop and MS Games

  aitch 12:08 16 Jul 2003

My daughter has just bought a HP Evo NX9005 laptop,Athlon XP2400,40HDD,256MB/ DVD/CDRW. All MS Office programmes have been installed and are OK and running, but her only 2 games MS Madness/ MS Rally (Genuine CD's I hasten to add), have been loaded but as soon as they are clicked on to start, after a few seconds the screen returns to the desktop, and the programme will not run. Have tried through the Start menu and the same thing happens. Autorun is enabled so everything is being detected and properties etc. show no conflict. Anyone with any ideas to help out much appreciated.
Regards, Aitch
