Compaq Evo D510 tower: game compatibility issues

I was given a used Compaq Evo D510 tower computer and wanted to use it offline to play games. I've downloaded some and managed to play a few, but the computer seems to have compatibility issues with most of the games. I think it may be a driver issue or maybe my graphics card can't handle some of the info on these games as they are new ones. Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Upgrading the windows version and adding ram and better video card may be a good solution. It couldn' hurt at least.
Try it and see if you can play you games.
Games are the most resourse hungry application that you can put your computer through. The ram size and video card memory size are critical for acceptable preformance.
Thank you and good luck,

I cant play 3d games

Try earlier versions of 3D games.
Your computer is a somewhat older model. So try playing 3D games released around 2000-2002.
Try NFS 6 or lower, GTA version 2, IGI 1 & 2 etc.
If even they don't work, try replacing the VGA card with a compatible but better VGA card (Cards from nVidia might be a good option).

How to plug front panal wires in mother board of compac evo d510 cmt?

I realize that this posted problem is over 4 months old, but in the interest it may help someone;

According to Compaq this is the motherboard used in the Evo D510 Convertible Mini-Tower,

Observe the blue long female connector on the motherboard. This connector is where the 40-pin flat IDE ribbon cable for the Harddrive, plugs in.

(On the above link; it may not work as a direct link. It is a PDF file you download.
In case it does not work just by clicking on it; copy it, paste it into your address bar, press the Enter key )

Scroll the page down to a little more than halfway. Observe the illustration of the motherboard to the Left of the page.
(Has J22, J21, P23, J20, J40, P54, above it)

Look at CR1, CR2, CR4, and P5
