unable to play cod wow xp pc game on gway dx4300

Hey all,

I did not know where to put this exactly. I have a gateway dx 4300 15e and many xp pc games wont play on it. specifically halflife battlefield 1942 and call of duty world at war, I get sound and a black screen. now this pc is a few years old but I take care of it, I am an artist and it runs all of my 3d engines[3dsmax, bryce and most others, photoshop all of this is graphic intensive, but no prob. I have benchmarked this with the new 3dmark games database, the can you run this online profile gaming checker and I have an amd ati radeon program for benchmarking and overclocking, I realize this is a 3200 intergrated but it is more then enough for most all xp games. I have 2 other laptops a gateway and a toshiba both older and they run these games there has to be some kind of conflict..excuse the link, but these are the specs to my desktop... can anyone assist an old guy with this.
