Check to see that you have loaded the latest motherboard and graphics drivers from the motherboard manufacturers website. If you dont know the make/model of the motherboard then use Belarc click here

i had this problem after i reinstalled my xp pro,i tried to watch a dvd in wmp but it said i did not have the right software,i then installed power dvd and it was ok.i had wrongly presumed that wmp would play dvd without extra software.not sure why it wont play games.have you reinstalled the motherboard drivers and any seperate graphics drivers?
