I think he has a point. He didn't spot it was running underclocked though.

If you think you can get some more use out of it then it's worth investing in a decent psu. You won't have to spend a fortune but don't be tempted to go cheap. Something around the 50 buck mark from a maker like Corsair would work fine.

I had a look on the badcaps forum to see if the motherboard was mentioned, but I couldn't see any reference to it, so hopefully it's not one of the boards affected.

Lol. Not going to lie, no one but you noticed that it was running underclocked. Also, to my utter surprise, all three of the games now work. So, it was most likely my processor, or my sound card drivers that were stopping it from working. Either way, you helped me alot today. Thank you.
