Just what sort of games is he playing?, it's just that the graphic card he has is a little weak for some of the latest games. Most games now come with updates already on them for directx 9. You should be able to download to your P/C then transfer files to his P/C.

One of the games that will not install is Tomb Raider. Spec required Pentium 90, x2 cd rom, 8mb ram, SVGA VESA local bus graphics card and 256 colours monitor. My spec is well above that. I insert cd and opening screen comes and I click on install but opening screen comes up with lines and colours but can not read. Works on my pc with better spec than my sons

It will help if you only do one posting for the same problem,otherwise it can get confusing for everybody.

Did you completely remove the old drivers before installing the new ones as that can sometimes cause problems, sorry if this sound stupid but you have to start somewhere.
