    Can you post your system specs for us. (especially your video card info)

    If you know how, update your display drivers.

    Which games are you trying to run and what are the minimum system requirements for them?... Moreover, what are they compared to your system..?--Post your system specs plz

    You could try some of Brink's tips for speeding up your computer:

    Speed Up the Performance of Vista

    I would also recommend installing CCleaner to remove your temporary files and clean your registry. Don't change any of the options (e.g. IIS Logs) unless you know what they do because you could lose data that you want.

    Download CCleaner 2.30.1130 - FileHippo.com
