Hi,My wife has a laptop now for some time she uses it mostly for playing games such as bejewled etc.Now over the past few days we have been unable to install any games.The laptop is fully updated spyware clean, Its a Notebook Computer Model M765S Running windows XP,Sorry thats all the info I have on it from the label underneath.Tried and run a crucial scan to check the ram but it did not recognise the pc. Any help please.

OPTION 1 - Repair XP by replacing corrupt files Type

sfc /scannow

in the run box, press enter and let system file checker find and replace missing / corrupt file in windows and explorer.This will take awhile to complete and you may be asked for the CD to be in the drive if windows is not preinstalled on the hard drive.
