my graphics card is an ATI ALLINONE WONDER PRO with latest driver from ati. All hardware has the latest drivers installed from manufacturers sites but XP will not play games. Everything else is ok and under ME all games work.

Sound like the game is trying to put the monitor into a to high resolution and/or refresh rate.

Check that your monitor is correct in device mangler.

my monitor is a belinea 10 30 20 and that is what it says in my device manager. If i try with a different monitor games will play introduction but when the games starts it plays for about 2 seconds and then goes to the black screen wiyh flashing amber led.
Tried other suggestions but still can not play games but thanks everyone for trying

Just out of interest, are there XP drivers built in for this card ?
If there are, does it work with no ATI stuff at all, just windows bog standard drivers.

This one is for Inder:

I have found a way to install programs using the compatibility option in windows. If you are installing of a CD try this:

creat a shortcut of the games Intall.exe file (or close to it) on your desktop - then right click on the shortcut and go to the Compatibility tab.

Set the compatibility to something like Windows 95 (for an old game) and try running the shortcut.
