Hello,
I've recently came across one sort of a big problem on my PC. I found out that the games that I used to run without problem few months back don't work anymore... But I can run them using Integral graphics instead of my Nvidia card.
This would lead me to think that there is some hardware issue with graphics card but curiously I can run other games without problem with Nvidia. I can assure you that there is no problem with my PC specs as I was able to run those games before the problems arose.
So naturally I didn't want to spend few days trying to find a solution and I jumped directly to reinstalling whole Windows... as I also wanted to clean my PC little bit, but I was quite shocked to find later on that the problem still continued to exist after I reinstalled whole Windows.
My PC runs on Windows 8, it is MSI, Graphics card is Nvidia GTX 765M, I got all the drivers updated as well as all the Windows updates installed on my PC
Any ideas what might cause the problems?

Without knowing real specs on your PC my first thought is .... so what did you change between when they worked and stopped working?.... seriously, give it some thought.  You might have updated a graphics driver that broke your card's compatibility, or some other software may have updated and created a conflict with it (frustrating, yes).  If you're running an "M" graphics card then I'm understanding this is a laptop.

 

Another thought is if those games are a part of a particular server system (like Steam or Origin based games) in which case it could be a port forwarding issue related to a modem/router change.  It would be remote for the graphics card to fail in the laptop without physical damage (dropping) but not completely impossible. 

 

My best guess is a software update (most likely driver) is buggy. you might search for an older driver version on line or find an older version you downloaded and roll back to that. good luck.
