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.

    It may be overheating. Try some older games and see if it does the same thing.

It sounds to me like you don't have a video card with enough memory. Those games require a very advanced video card. Check the specifications on the games and see if you need to upgrade.

Installation is not the problem. It's the thing that it is OLD game already as people are on Call of Duty 5. Anyway, you might want to download this patch and see if it does the job: http://www.gameupdates.org/details.php?id=2548

Call of Duty 1 & 2 should be ok. Call of Duty 3 should run but it depends on wether your graphics card is onboard or not. Call of Duty 4 and World at War are not recommended for your machine.
