    The NVIDIA GeForce 6150SE is not a graphics card.
    It is actually integrated graphics on the motherboard.
    Which games do you play on your PC?

    Racerpack (Autobahn, Grand Prix Evolution, Speed Thief and Midnight Racing by Uwish Games) and Scooby Doo 2
  6. You can always run dxdiag.exe which is the windows directx diagnostics. It will tell you if if directx is working properly. As stated, if you are using an integrated graphics chip, most of these don't do well with games.

    It used to work with them, but the latest update made them not work.
  8. If the games used to work, then there may be a conflict with the update and the video driver. If there is a newer version of the video driver, then download and install it. Worst case, go to "control panel/add remove programs" and click the "show updates" box. Find the newest updates and start removing them one by one until you find the one that is breaking things. Once you find it, you can then go into windows update and tell it to hide that update so it won't try to install it again. Once a new video driver is out, you can then install it. You can go into windows updates and tell it to unhide that update at any time.
  9. The system requirements for the games say that you need a video card with at least 16MB memory. You should upgrade your hardware to an add-on video card, even if it is a cheap low-end one.
