Sorry that it took so long to get back to you, but its hard to post without anything to say. I was trying to think of a cause of your problem. Almost everything has been covered, even took it to be repaired.
This was not mentioned.
run an antivirus scan

download and run malwarebytes

I ran the Malware scan with no errors.

However, in safe-mode the games I tried did not crash.

I think alot of Windows 7 users have the same problem, and here are some threads showing that I'm not the only one having this problem.

Good did not crash in safe mode, now we know its due to conflict, but which one.

This will tell us a lot.

Type msconfig in search, check diagnostic setup. Then boot

After boot, should I try to open up the games that used to crash and see what I get?

Yes, that is the point of the test, trying to figure out the cause.

Based upon what you said, I think it is a driver.Safe mode removes drivers.
Go to device manager, look for any yellow markers indicating problems.

If not make sure you have up to date drivers. Especially for graphics.

I say this knowing full well that your first post says that you looked into that.

I am not there, I cannnot see our touch your computer, I have only my exptertise and what I learn here.
