What are the Direct X recommendations for the game? Is your direct X up to date.?

You can check if your graphics card is compatible with 3D graphics by going to Start>run (just on the right below search), and type in dxdiag,

This will bring up your direct X diagnosis program and enable you to run some checks.
Check to see if 3D graphics Accelleration is enabled and then run the video and sound checks to make sure that you are having no problems.

Theoretically, your computer should have no problem running these programs. However, after researching the Dell Precision 450 specs, I found that it is a business machine with a quadro graphics card. This card is not targeted at gaming applications such as an Nvidia GeForce. This link will explain the differences. The graphics card itself may be causing the problem if the graphics drivers are crashing. This manifests as everything going black and no keys working. Also, if it is the stock card, it barely has enough graphics memory to run guild wars. You could try updating the graphics drivers from Nvidia. You could also get a new graphics card that is designed for gaming.

Another solution that you could try is updating the games by downloading patches for your games.

Heloo, I am trying to play call of duty world at war and the game keeps crashing. I have tried all different settings in the nvidia control panel and my system is up to date. Can you help me with this?


Make sure your system meets the games minimum requirements. If it does then try using a lower video setting. If that does not work you may need to upgrade to a better graphics card. Hope this helps.

Media Edition DVR Recording


It is most likely due to a media codec issue.

These issues are often difficult to remedy since many different software applications and plugins will install codecs.

Try reinstalling the DVD decoder (probably Sonic Cineplayer, and make sure the update is installed from Dell's website) support.dell.com downloads for your system, or http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/download.aspx?releaseid=R143248&fileid=191233

I usually do not like to install more Codecs, but you could install a Codec pack such as http://www.free-codecs.com/download/K_lite_codec_pack.htm

Hope this helps
