    I don't suppose you could be any more vague? I'm overwhelmed by the sheer amount of detail in your question.

Hmmm, interesting.

First, compare the games' resource( you can usually find these in the game's website, or anywhere on the internet), to your machines' capability. I say this because the cause of this anomalous behaviour is frequently caused solely by the video card, or lack of an adequate one. If the games resource needs are much higher than your machine can supply, then this very well could be the root of the problem.

Another source of this erroneous behaviour could be an installation performed incorrectly, under which the game will attempt to a file that is missing due to the aforementioned installation. A proper remedy is to uninstall the game, then to promptly re-install it, following the correct procedure this time. And also before doing this, check your computer for the presence of any malware,(this consists of viruses, bots, adware), and if any is located, attempt to remove it. I recommend that you use anti virus software anytime you are online. Some anti virus software is free, a good example is AVG's free anti virus, that can be located at this website, , And lastly, try to update all yoour drivers if possible, for the manufactures also may have encountered such problems after further testing, and may have already released fixes to these errors. After you do all of this, is when you may then proceed to the installation, and remember, always follow proper procedure when perfoming any installation, as the software publisher's instructions tend to be safe and error free.

Lastly if this doesn;t work for you, then send me the following:

> The name of the compute game.
> Your computer's Operating System( Thats is either Windows, Mac OS, Linux) But in your case, i'm rather safe by guessing that you run a copy of either Windows XP, or Windows Vista.
> And also, if possible, send to me, a list of your computer's system specifications & measures.

Some games are for other regions of the world, the machines are made to only play certain regions games, hence people chipping them, the downloaded games may be missing encrypted data, thus wont play.
