Games not working!

Hi, new here. I love Windows 7 but i cant make my games run properly!

Ive tried all types of compability-modes and "running as admin" and so on. Still wont work!

Ive asked around on diffrent forums for help, all day long but with no good result.

If you need to know my system specs just check my profile!

Most grateful for help. Starting to get desperate.

Best regards and sorry for bad english.

dont worry about the english but we do need more information. What does it do when you attempt to run a game? Is there an error code?

Does it happen with every game?

Does it happen when booted into safe mode (F8)?

Every game so far havent worked. Tried NWN + Both EXP, GTA SA, HALO: Combat Evolved.

Different things happen depending on which game im using. On NWN the start menu comes up (With play, update, config etc) and i click play ofc. Game starts up in uber low res and with no sound. When i come to the main manu the game finally crashes. This happens all the time.

On GTA SA it starts up correctly with sound. The problem here is the messed up graphics! Im running it on the highest settings. The colors and stuff are weird. Its clearly not enjoyable with those graphics. Check my image for example:

Done that. What i DO need drivers to is for my soundcard intergrated in the graphics card (Using HDMI). I cant find the latest drivers to the sound card so i would be happy if anyone did.

Check my profile for information.
