Hey all, my friend's family got a new dell about 7 months back, and i think about 3 months ago it stopped playing certain games, notably shogun 2 total war. Rome tw and battle for middle earth 2 wont run either. From what I can tell Shogun starts but gets stuck on the loading screen and never leaves. Rome never plays at all, the CD is recognized, but it doesn't run. I believe bfme2 does the same thing Rome does, but I didn't get a chance to test it. I tried to download new drivers for him, except they failed to install, either from nvidia's website, or from window's downloader. The device manager told me the Gt 530 he has didnt have any drivers on it, and wasnt working properly. Thats all i really had time to do, thoughts?
his specks that i remember are as follows:
core i7 2600
Nvidia gt 530
Windows 7 64
8 gigs ram
something like a 1.5tb hard drive....not sure on that one
