Today I went to play Sim City 4 for the first time on my computer since I formatted it but after I selected an area in the region screen it didn't go to the loading screen like it was suppose to, it quit to the desktop, Sim City 4 use to work before I formatted it, so I tried another game Ski Park Manager 2003 but when it was suppose to load it shut down to desktop also. What's happening? Is it a hardware issue? Graphic Card Problem(Intel 82810 Graphics)?Can someone please help me? Is it something wrong with Windows 98SE?

After your format did you install the motherboard drivers from the CD that should have come with your computer? They are necessary. ;-)
