I have an old emachine running XP for my 5 yr grandson to use so he didn't ruin mine.  I've noticed that when he goes to certain sites, the graphics are bad.  Like trying to watch some videos, there will be a row of thin, horizontal lines going diagonally across the entire screen.  I recently bought Crazy Machines for him to play.  I knew we were in trouble.  As the ad screens appeared, the logos would be cut in half and jump around the screen.  When he got to the actual game, the screen was a mess of jumping geometric figures and blinking objects.  I tried running Windows update to make sure everything is updated on this computer.  That didn't help.  I've tried messing with my display settings a little but nothing helped.  We have other games with simpler graphics that play just fine.  I'm not a gamer so I'm lost.Attached File  DxDiag.txt   42.59KB   1 downloads

It appears that Crazy Machines installs Nvidia Pyhsx check in Add/Remove to see if its installed. If not uninstall and reinstall this game. Do you have the latest graphics drivers?

Tech support had me get Nvidia Pyhsx online.  Did nothing.  They then suggested I update my drivers which should have been done when I did the Windows update.  I tried again and the Nvidia site said I had the latest updates to Nvidia.  Is there anything else that needs updates that Windows wouldn't cover?
