    Not able to play games in my Dell GX280 WIndows 7 OS

    I recently bought new Dell Gx280 laptop with WIndows 7 OS and now the problem is I am unable to play the games which I use to play in Windows XP PC. What might be the problem? Can you tell me how to fix this issue and play games normally in my Dell Windows 7 laptop?

    Hi,
    Not running of a games canbe due to many reasons.

    Check the system for virus infeation and clean if found.

    Install latest version of DirectX to your system, download from the net,

    Check the games for any corrupted .EXE file that may have issue with the opening.

    Thank you.

    Due to many reasons. first you have to install the DirectX and then check.
    to download the new version of DirectX click this below link.

    http://filehippo.com/download_directx/


    in this link you can download NVIDIA nFORCE AND forceware also.
    after install these apps you can play the games.

    OR

    the graphic drivers are different to the windows XP and Windows 7.
    so install the motherboard graphic drivers for your laptop.

    ALL THE BEST>!
