My husband is having trouble with playing games on our computer. We have windows XP. Our Dell computer is only about 2 years old. One thing worth mentioning is that our modem was hit by lightening last year. As far as I can tell it was the only thing affected. It just makes it so we can't use dial-up. Anyway, everytime my husband goes to play a game from CD, it won't open. He's able to download the games to the system without any trouble, but when he tries to play them he just gets a flash of a white screen and then that's it. Sometimes the initial game menu will come up, but then when you click to play the game, it just flashes and then nothing. Any ideas of what's going on?
