I have had this problem with various games in the past, Godfather, C&C Zero Hour, Singualarity, etc, only way to get the to play was REINSTALL windows!. Has to be a DX problem, because these games work when I first install windows, but when DX gets updated, failure.

ok, when you reinstall windows make sure you install the directx update last and before you do that be sure to make a restore point in case there is a problem

No, forget that. I see no other options left than a complete re-install of Windows...

or download a previous driver since it seems it is a driver issue, my cousin had the same problem turns out it was a bad driver update, downgrade to a previous version and see what happens

If you have the original driver cd use that

If you have the original driver cd use that. Updating drivers is not always a good idea and the general rule is if it's not broke don't fix it.

I tried using older drivers, and unistalling some windows updates, nothing worked.

Had to reinstall windows... everything working fine right know. Thanks all for your help.

There is a windows message coming up on the middle of the screen every 5 minutes or so, warning that the "Dell Support Centre" has stopped working and that it will look for a solution. So what can I do to disable this annoyance or even all the "Not working" warnings since they are useless to me...
