Oneline games don't load anymore...

Q: Oneline games don't load anymore...

I hope someone has an answer to my dilemma. I like to play games online, especially at and, but since yesterday I haven't been able to play any of the games. The games don't load for me anymore.

I have disabled the firewall and the pop-up stopper to see if it would help, but it didn't. I don't know what else to do. I am sure I am missing some files, but don't have a clue to which ones are missing.

Any help is greatly appreciated....

By the way my computer has windows 98SE.

Thank you in advance!

A: Oneline games don't load anymore...

Problem fixed. I did a system restore and now I am good again.

Hey, I went to turn on my laptop this morning, and got this error message. It just stays at 17% forever, and doesn't load up. I left it for about 5 hours, came back and it was still stuck there. I've tried booting it up from safe mode, restoring from a different point, but it still won't boot up. Help please!

Here is a link to the image i'm talking about: Imgur

A:XP won't load up anymore.

Hello priest_jimbo, to TSF!

You have the answer to your problem shown in the screenshot...."The Volume is Dirty."
This means that the HDD is bad; it might be recoverable, but it will mean completely wiping the Drive with a Wiping utility such as DBAN, and re-installing the O/S from scratch.
This in itself presents other issues:
You will need your original Windows? Installation Disc and Product Key;considering the fact that you are still using Windows? XP and Microsoft? no longer support XP; it might be time for you to seriously consider upgrading the unit completely.
It's probably more than 4 years old and ready for the scrap heap.
Even if you were successful re-installing XP you would not be able to update any of the security and system updates because of the cessation of support.
If the HDD is too far gone and re-installation of the O/S is unsuccessful; then, its time for a new replacement Drive.
Taking into account the cost of a new HDD for your laptop, and a new Windows? O/S; such as, Windows 7? or Windows 8.1?, it would more than likely work out to be cheaper to buy a brand new laptop, that would already have an O/S pre-installed.
Prices of laptops today are very good, because manufacturers and retailers are all competing for business; hence, prices are very good.
Now is the time to consider your options.
Post back with your thoughts and any queries you may have.

Kind Regards,

Suddenly my c.d.'s do not load anymore. Not in Windows Media, nor in my PCDJ, etc. When I restart the individual programs the c.d. loads, but only once. (after which I have to restart again if I want to hear a new c.d.

Only my Real Player works partly. It also does not automatically reload new c.d.'s but if I manually delete the playlist and then press Play again it works. But this is not normal I reckon...

Can somebody tell me what the matter can be? (It's not as simple as to click automatic playing via computer - c.d. ROM device etc.)

Hi paulvangelder

. . . and Welcome to the Tech Support Forums.

Several things to check:
(You've already taken a good first step: you already checked on the "Autorun" setting for your drive)
1) If you can, borrow another CD (or DVD) drive (an external is a quick troubleshooter for this sort of thing). If everything suddenly works just fine with a different drive, it's possible that the drive had become faulty. (Could be something as simple as the lens needing cleaning, or the unit could be failing).
2) If the problem just recently started (and trying a different CD-drive doesn't help), try a System Restore, using a restore point from when the CDs were playing OK.
3) If neither of these work - make sure it's not malware corrupting system files (scan in both Safe Mode and Normal, and use as thorough settings as possible. If you find an infection, try the 5-Step Security Checklist here at TSF
4) If the system scans clean, try uninstalling Windows Media Player.
5) Run a Registry Cleaner (I recommend CCleaner
6) Disable any "Download Manager" software you might have, and download a fresh copy of Windows Media Player (you can do this in Windows Update -- which is a good idea anyway, since you should also check for Security Updates while you're there).
7) Install Windows Media Player & test to see if it plays CDs OK now. Then ... Read more

None of my games work anymore, I either get a black screen, then am sent back to windows with no explanation or the games just don't run. These are all old games that I've played a long time ago and haven't touched for years and now when i try them they don't work! I've installed the latest version of directx and scanned my computer for viruses, but still no luck.

After I ran registry mechanic and defragged my hard drive (perfect disk - thrice, although I stopped the defrag half way through), none of the latest games work anymore (Call of duty 4, Crysis demo, Bioshock), although older games like Heroes of might and magic 3 still runs fine. Whenever I click to start a game, the splash screen will start, the screen will go black like when one normally starts a game, and then I'm just back at the desktop, with no error message. All other software works fine, like Ableton Live 5 etc.

I should also say that before all of this I decided to clean up my hard drive and deleted some files mainly in C:\documents and settings\bernhard\local settings\temp. I did not delete any read-only files. Maybe this screwed it up?

It's strange because everything works fine except these games all of a sudden.

Any help would be greatly appreciated

I think I am in the right place but if this thread should be in another spot let me know.

I bought a computer a while ago and because it has a GeForce 7800 GS video card it sadly has the infinite loop problem. I managed to fix the Blue Screen of Death errors this problem causes when I downloaded the latest drivers for my card. I haven't had the crash problem since, but still have video rendering problems when I play some games like Battlefield 2 for instance what happens is the environment goes all screwy, I see a checkerboard type map on the ground or the image of the gun I am holding has odd triangle shapes coming off it or when I get into a vehicle the view is all triangles and flashing object or the other characters in the game look all sparkly and seem to be made up of odd triangle shapes. The only way to fix this is to reboot the system closing the game and starting it again doesn't work. Anywho the main reason I am here is because since I updated the video drivers ( I don't know what they were before or if this is the real reason for the problem) or because of something else other than the driver update, I can't say for sure as I didn't notice the problem right away because I didn't start the affected games for quite some time after the fact. I can still play COD4 but COD5, COD6, and Black Ops all fail to work and close down before they start COD6 actually stutters at the menu screen and I have to shut the system down by pulling the plug....

A:I can't play my games anymore!?

The only thing I noticed with Vista and games is sometimes a game will load and you get to a black menu screen for the game. I play Silent Hunter 4 and the first time I loaded the game in Vista I had not issues at all. Me being me messed up how to handle admin account and user account so I did a clean install to start over. Once done I loaded Silent Hunter 4 again to play. No issues, loaded fine. I clicked to play and I got the load screen. Once I got to the menu of the game it was nothing but a black screen. I could hear the music and see my mouse cursor but nothing else. So, what I had to do was go to my videocard tweak program ( I just use the one offered by Nvidia, it works fine) and reset my video card to all the default values. Should be just a box to check and apply to reset to defaults. Once done, I ran the game and all was fine. I closed the game out and reset my videocard back up to the tweaks I like. My game ran fine every since. Give it a shot, it worked for me.

Guys you won't believe it.

I reinstalled Vista yesterday because of this issue and also my games.
Yesterday everything worked.
Today I installed my applications and extra drivers and I started Racedriver GRID and it did the same thing.
So since its a new Vista install I checked what I installed today and removed the Windows Visual C and my Genius Fpen 610 driver.
Reboot and magically Grid and all my games started.

My Genius F610 Tablet driver for Vista was causing all the trouble!!!!
Can you believe that?

Hey guys I have AT&T "High-Speed" Internet DSL. I used to be able to host games and such when I was directly connected to the modem and nobody would lagg, and I would never lagg in games. Anyways, now I bought a linksys wrt54gl because I needed internet for myself and other people here at home. Well I tried the best I could, and I can join games (I play Borderlands and CS:Source and Team Fortress 2) but I can't host. When I host, my friends can't join, they used to be able to join me with no lagg... now they can't even join me.

I've tried port forwarding, disabling DMZ, removing the router firewall, tons of stuff. I can't get it to work, and I need to be able to host games again because I have the fastest internet.

Please help me out, I'm a newcomer and not too Tech Savvy but I'm not stupid either.

Thanks guys at Tech Support Guy Forums,

I'm having the same problem as the member who posted about connection problems with craigslist. I have websites that I used to visit occasionally, but now when I try to access them they don't load at all. Other sites are fine. I tried different computers at home, all the same problem. I have a wired internet network at home with Verizon as my provider. I took one laptop to a wi-fi location elsewhere, and all the sites I mentioned loaded immediately.

I turned my modem off and on, and the sites then loaded normally. But last evening they all went out again and now when I reboot my modem they don't come up. I can't imagine what the problem could be. I will try the pinging method when I get home, but if that doesn't help me solve the problem I don't know what to do. Any advice on this issue?

Hi. My Sony Vaio laptop won't load up anymore. When moved I sometimes got the blue screen of death, it restarted and it was fine. But yesterday I moved it slightly and it got the blue screen of death again. It came up with the screen asking if I wanted to load Windows normally or in safe mode. No matter which I click it starts to load then gets the blue screen of death and restarts again, then showing the safe mode option screen again.

I have no clue what the blue screen of death screen says as it doesn't stay up for more than a second.

I have no back up disks. It doesn't seem to want to show the BIOS. It is running Windows XP.

What is most likely to have caused the problem and what can I do to fix it? I'd rather not wipe the hard drive and start again unless I really really have to.

Any help would be great. Thanks.

Hi, I'm new to the forum and I'd like to first say I really appreciate this opportunity to get some help. My Gateway has been infected with something for months now it seems. (I'm far from a computer expert, but I did try a lot of various anti virus programs) Google also has been hijacked. A lot of times the computer would fail to even get to the sign on screen, so I've done the "restoring to an earlier point" option several times . The problem seems to have gotten worse over time, and about two weeks ago, no programs would load. No AOL, no Firefox, Media Player , and a lot of other random links that wouldn't activate such as certain things in the Control Panel. The little arrow in the task manager that points up was still there, but none of the things that are usually there were there anymore (except the volume and windows update, which I also couldn't load) I did system restore again a few times, which worked, but a few days ago it crashed while trying to restore and now the only dates available are recent ones that still have the same problem.
I've looked around the internet on another computer and tried a couple random things, such as disabling a lot, if not all of the startup programs from running, but still nothing.

Hello all. not sure I'm in the right forum but whatever.

I'm running a dual boot system with Slackware Linux and Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit. Using the LILO boot manager to switch between things. Everything was working fine, just did a fresh install of both OS's. I was fiddling around under windows 7 in disk manager because I essentially needed to created a new partition because I had split my 500 gig hdd into the following: 100 gig, for Windows, 100 gigs for Slackware and the rest for NTFS data. I had not set up that final partition which was what i was doing under disk management. So i set it up as NTFS and say ok then all my partitions switched from blue to orange and it assigned some drive letters to my linux paritions (OS and the Swap) which it had not done previously... as expected. Now being the old tech that I am, i didn't take the time to read any messages that popped up as well... windows does that a lot so so i don't remember if anything popped up before or after this happened.

Now the big problem, i reboot my system, Linux works fine and I can access the windows partition no problem and even modify things in it. Then i load windows again and it just hangs at the "Windows Loading" screen (all black with white text). It's not frozen as the little cursor is blinking. But it just hangs there.

If anyone has any idea what happened and if there's a fix it would be a great help, I really don't feel like re-installing.

A:Windows 7 won't load anymore

I am not familar with old technology like Linux, but Windows 7 will configure the boot menu correctly when installed last and if drives other than OS's are unplugged in case one is wrongly marked active.

When Win7 has its boot sidetracked, it is normally recoverable by booting into the Win7 installer Repair console and running Startup Repair repeatedly, in case there are multiple issues. All former command fixes are automated there.

I went to the steam website and did everything they told me to and it still doesnt work....what should i do?

A:None of my online games work anymore

well make sure your are not in fact blocked by a firewall or anything, unless your 100% sure. make sure your internet connection is set under the right setting appropriate for you under Settings>Internet tab for Steam.

about 3 days ago, i was just on the computer. I went on the internet, tried downloading adobe after affects, and played minecraft. after awhile i got bored so i turned off my computer. When i decided to go back on later, i couldnt play my only 2 computer games which are wizard101 and minecraft. Internet, videos and other programs work just fine. Its just wiz101 and minecraft.
When trying to open wizard 101 i get 3 errors (see attached file). After all those messages go away i can type in my username and password to start the game, but it just tells me i am unable to connect to wizard101.
For minecraft, i have 2 different minecrafts installed. One of the minecrafts let me enter my password and username and begin playing the game, but after that the minecraft window just goes black and stays like that. When trying to play the OTher minecraft i get this error -
Java Virtual Machine Launcher 
Error: Invalid or corrupt jarfile C:\Documents And Settings\Victoria\Desktop\Mineshafter-proxy.jar
ive tried uninstalling and then re-installing minecraft, thats all. It did not work though. I havent tried anything else yet. I have a windows Xp. If you need anymore info on my computer or need me to be more clear about some things, please let me know. Thank you.

I have a gateway with a tsstcorp dvd =_ rw mlti format double layer drive and very suddenly I can no longer watch movies. Games play, cds play, audio fine. But I put in a movie and it's like there's no disc here. We've watched movies on it for over a year, so I checked multiple movies that once worked. I've followed the troubleshooting, tried to update driver. The wizard could find no better driver than what is already being used. I DO NOT get an error message. I just don't get anything to show up either under My Computer or in Media Center or Media player. Oh, and if it helps we have Windows XP Media Center Edition. This stumps me. I read somewhere "Security Update for Windows Media Player 6.4 (KB925398)" was a problem but I even went to add/remove programs and couldn't find that paticular update, so I couldn't uninstall that.
Thanks for any help.

At least 2 old games gothic 1 and gothic 2 ( raven ). Both played well on my winXP 64-bit. I reinstalled them both. Gothic 1 has no images in intro, and the sound is very spotty. Gothic 2 also has no intro images and even stopped in the middle of intro.

It is the same computer, except some more games. The computer is virtually not connected to internet except when I need a patch. What could be the reason?

one year old gaming computer
winXP pro 64-bit service pack 2
AMD phenom II X4 955
3.21 ghz 8 gig RAM
radeon HD 4870 X2 2gig video RAM
BTW, the DVDs come from " gothic universal " which includes 3 DVDs ( No1 is gothic 1, No2 is gothic 2 and No3 is gothic 3 ). No3 which is gothic 3 works fine so I have no reason to think that the other two DVDs do not work because they are dusty or scratched. Most other games played well including both old and recent games.

I use Photoshop Elements regularly. It recently stopped launching. It starts to load, but when it gets to loading TWAIN menu items, it unexpectedly quits.

This problem started soon after I got a new printer, an Epson Stylus CX4800. But it didn't start immediately. I did use Elements and print from it, but the problem started a day or two later. The two may have nothing to do with each other.

I've tried uninstalling the Epson software. Didn't help. I've also tried upgrading from Elements 3 to Elements 4 but that won't launch either.

Any ideas?

Hi all, I've got a new and weird issue. I'm on Vista x64 with all of the updates as well as the latest versions of IE and Firefox. I work on and haven't made any changes to the banner in many, many years but all of a sudden the single image that holds the logo and the words "" is not showing up. My first thought was that I'd been hacked, but it doesn't appear that way. Next, I found the image on my computer (it looks fine) and uploaded over the top of the old one. I still can't see it. The behavior is the same in both IE and Firefox.

For example, if I go to any page I can't see it. If I go to I see nothing, an empty page. I uploaded the same image to and I see that one. The odd thing is that if I go to these pages and links on another computer I can see everything in IE, so I know it's just a problem on my end.

IE and Firefox both have the same symptoms, so it seems like it's some Vista setting they share between them or I have a virus or some other bug (I have no idea what that could be). I looked at the site yesterday and there were no problems so this just happened today.

I deleted all of my temporary Internet files and reloaded the page. It grabbed all of the images again except for that one. Does anyone have any idea how this is happening? I'm really at a loss. Thanks!

I have had the ability to play older games. I speculate that after installing SP2 on the x64 you lose the ability to install/play older x86 games. I cant play my MechWarrior 4 anymore and it has me annoyed. I also assume at times...even though sounds stupid..that newer hardware is just too high end for older games that they cant be installed on them. I know its silly but possible. Just keep trying in compatibility mold all the way back to windows 2000/xp settings and try it out more. It might just work if it feels like it.

Hi, I have a computer with hardware capable of running almost all current titles, EG Bf3, Dota2, counter strike GO, that was until a few months ago.
I started experiencing serious ping issues / packet loss in games causing me to completely freeze, then re-appear where I would have been. On counter strike source "string_cmds" graph peaks when this occurs.
The problem has got worse now, though, I can't play more then 10 minutes of ANY game before something goes wrong, be it a game crash or my whole computer shuts down resulting in one of the many Blue screen Stop errors I have said.
The game will run perfectly smooth, then suddenly my whole computer will shut down. This can happen about 5 times a day depending on how willing I am to restart the game.
Google chrome has just started to crash frequently now, too, and with limited income being 16 I need to fix this rather buy a new pc.

Welcome to SevenForums,

I have had a look at your last 3 DMP Files, 2 of them are referencing memory.

Can you try these steps for me

Test your RAM modules for possible errors. How to Test and Diagnose RAM Issues with Memtest86+If there is no error, enable Driver Verifier to monitor the drivers. Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable

Before enabling DV, make it sure that you have earlier System restore points made in your computer. You can check it easily by using CCleaner looking at Tools > System Restore.

If there is no points, make a System Restore Point manually before enabling DV.

If you fail to get on the Desktop because of DV, Boot into Advanced Boot Options > Safe mode. Disable DV there. Now boot normally again, and try following the instruction of enabling DV again.
If you cannot boot in Safe mode too, do a System Restore to a point you made earlier.

So recently my gpu failed (8800 GTX M) and I ordered a replacement. After I replaced the faulty card the laptop was running beautifully for 2 days. Today while playing call of duty the game crashed with A directx error. Thinking it was just a random thing I restarted the laptop And it wouldn't boot up anymore. Not even the Dell splash screen appears anymore.

Shocked I disassmbled the whole laptop and put it back together. After this the Dell splash screen appeared again, only once though. Now I'm back at a black screen with nothing loading at all. I am super frustrated right now, and have no idea what itmight be.
Hope someone can help,

If so remove the graphics card and see if you get the splash screen.

I received this error after trying to play europa universalis 4, after updating with the latest windows 8.1 updates. Yesterday all games worked fine, today, none of them run at all.

I've been searching for a solution but all i can find is update your graphics card / DirectX / install the Dx in the game folder itself, all of which i did, but none of it worked.

I've tried pretty much everything i could find about this problem, anyone have any ideas? Only difference is i am running all of this off a laptop with an intergrated graphics card though, and for the next few months my laptop is all i have in terms of a pc.

A:load games

Lets backup, first, what Games do you want to install? Would these be the default games of XP or something more intensive? Second, does this computer even have a DVD-RW drive? Or is it just a CD-RW or worse a CD Rom drive. And if it does, what software are you using to burn DVD's with? If you want to make a disc for music, CD's are most compatible, you would probably want to burn CD-R discs not DVD's. IMHO

Many games that I install will not load up. When I select them the hard drive light will flicker briefly and then stop. The game will not go full screen or do anything. The computer simply returns to the desktop. The program is present in memory as I can see it in the task manager (i.e. Ctrl+Alt+Del Menu). It does this with postal 2, thief 2, simpsons hit and run, and gta vice city, and likely many other games if i bought them and installed them. Can someone please help me with this profoundly vexing problem?

Hi all,

I haven't been able to play any games recently on my PC. I've recently upgraded the mobo, CPU and memory (going from MSI-7091, 3.4Ghz P4 and 2Gb RAM to Gigabyte GP35-DS3R, Quad 2.4Ghz and 4Gb RAM). Originally I had a 7950GT and this played the games fine (BF2 and Civ 4). Now, I can't get them to open.

I double click on the shortcut and I get the little arty-graphic window when it's loading. Then the screen goes black, as it does before the FMV starts loading. Then the game minimises and I'm back to the desktop. If I click on it to open, I get a black screen with a seconds worth of sound stuck on loop, then reverts back to desktop.

I thought this might have been an issue with the GC (I doubted it, but was upgrading anyway) so installed an 8800GT with 1Gb RAM. I'm still having the same problem!

Does anyone know anything I can do to sort this out?! I've tried reinstalling the games and reinstalling the Nvidia drivers; neither has worked.

I have moved my computer to a new location, since then none of my casino games will load.
I can log in. see all the games, but when I click on them they will not load.
Thank you, Joseph Duda

A:Games won't load

changing physical locations should not affect the functionality of the software games... unless....

The casino games you play, was there a install on ur computer then you log in to play on the net?
If this is the case, did you move to a different building/ISP?
It could be possible that the program paired an IP for you when you originally installed it.
I'd suggest getting in touch with the company who made the games, if it is possible.

Not too sure how any other physical change could mess with the games not loading.

I successfully installed win98se / win2k / winxp (in that order) and had them all functioning properly using the windows boot loader. Well at least for a while. Today I tried to boot into win2k and it loaded to the point where it displayed my desktop wallpaper. It did not load the tasbar or start menu, and ctrl+alt+del did nothing. After a few minutes, it played the sound it plays when it loads up, and started flashing repeatedly the messages "Loading your configuration" and "Saving your configuration" or somesuch. It would not stop playing the sound and flashing those messages until I reset the machine. I then attempted to boot into XP, which ran chkdsk and said it "fixed" something in my win2k partition.

Any ideas what this could be and how I might fix it?

Don't exactly know what the problem is but you could try doing a repair install using the win2k CD. All your files and stuff won't be affected but to be safe backup your files first.

Just recently built two computers for my wife and I. One system runs flawlessly and mine (of course) has had a spree of BSODs.

I get the following error:

***STOP: 0x000000F4 (0x0000000000000003, 0xFFFFFA800DFAE510, 0xFFFFFA800DFAE7FO, 0xFFFFF80002D8B510)

Usually this occurs while playing a game, from The Witcher 2 to Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, and even then, sometimes it runs flawlessly. I usually get booted from the game and Windows locks up for about 30 seconds, with a BSOD to follow.

zip file contains all the required info plus the dump files.

A:BSOD under load during games

Been working on this for the past day or so trying to figure out if this is a hardware related problem.

The BSODs aren't any more or less frequent, I typically get about 2 each day. Today's BSODs occured when playing CSGO and later I received one while just browsing the web, so they occur very randomly, even when the system isn't under any stress.

I've swapped out the GPU and PSU (I built the exact same PC for my wife) with the other computer and still get these problems.

Also, I have been monitoring my CPU and GPU temps just to check out my temps. and haven't seen anything out of acceptable ranges (low 30s C on both, up to 40C if i'm multi tasking), under load it gets higher, but still within range.

Checked my thermal paste on the CPU at the request of some advice and found no overflow.

Still running on empty with these problems, but I'll update the thread as I come up against any issues.

I've attached the most recent dumps for 8/29.

Hope this is not a duplicate. I thought I posted earlier but do not see it.
I have been playing URU (Ages Beyond Mist). I am only an intermittent player and would play for a couple of hours and then stop and start up days later. It can take me a couple of months to play a game like URU. I never had any trouble loading the game. Then one day as I put the game disk in the DVD drive and the game tried to load, it froze the computer. Had to push the power button to shut down. This kept happening so I tried my other drive, a DVD-RW. It played the game and I went on. Next time when I tried to load the game the computer froze again. Then a friend told me to hold the shift key down when loading and that worked!. The computer did not crash and I just went to My Computer and clicked on the drive. I thought I could live with that if I needed to. But no the next time holding down the shift key did not work and the computer crashed. I tried this technique with the other drive and now it will not play the game either. The DVD Rom drives will play music CDs and in fact I down loaded this morning another soft ware program (Print Master, an art program). So I believe the drives are working other than starting the games. I have tried to load Dungeon Siege and Doom - Collector's Edition and they will crash the computer when trying to load also.

A:Can't load games onto computer

well, in my experience, this happens because of the condition of the CD you are installing.

1) first, take it and clean it. doesn't matter if it's fresh out of the packaging or not. use your Disk Doctor system, if you have one, or just one of those little spinners that you put the cd in. a clean cd is a happy cd. also if it came packaged in a paper sleeve, for goodness sake, throw the paper away and put it in a plastic cd case. paper scratches cds.

... if you don't have any kind of cd cleaning system, consider getting one. fingerprints are awful at stopping installations, causing delays/glitches for the install process and causing improper installs (the kind that appear fine, but when playing, errors pop up).

... if you can't get a cd cleaning system, wash the cd in warm, soapy water using your fingerpads (NO FINGERNAILS) and dry it off with a chamois. if you don't own a chamois, put it someplace out of the way and let it air dry.

now try it. this is the cause of prolly 95% of all install errors.

good luck! let us know if this works.

Anyway my new setup is an Asus M4A88D-TD/USB3 motherboard which has built in ATI Radeon HD 4250 but I'm still using my old ATI 3870 HD X2 as its faster.

Problem I've got it all games start to load but black screen. Nothing I do seems to help. I just get lit back screen, no sound, no video, nothing.

Is it possible the signel is being sent to one of the other video out plugs? I have a total of 6, 4 DVI and 2 HDMI. Not sure what to check. I've re-installed Windows 7 Ultimate x64 twice now.

Not sure what else to do.

A:Games won't load right? Some configuration off?

The only thing I can think to suggest first is to make sure that your onboard graphics is disabled in your bios.

Also this only happens with games?
Another thing to take a look at is in your device manager, is your monitor listed as what it is or PnP?
If it is listed as PnP your going to want to try and got to the manufacturers site and see if their is a driver for it (.inf file) and install it. This may not fix the issue but will at the least allow you full control over it's native resolution and other choices.

I don't think it has anything to do with your signal not being detected correctly form the output your using. As the signal can only reach your monitor through the cable outlet you have chosen to use.
If your using DVI and have a VGA cable and adapter and your monitor also will accept VGA I would give that a try and see if their is any difference.
Please let us know how your connected DVI to HDMI or whatever.
Thanks. Fabe
