i think it might be something up with my video (graphics) card what do you guys think?

warcraft 3, guild wars, city of heroes (sometimes), etc don't work but starcraft broodwar and some other games work

my specs: hp pavilion laptop 512 ram 120gb hard drive running xp media center and my video card is ATI mobility radeon x600

older games work fine while only slightly newer games are not working well. Could be they are just enough to challenge your system. Could be that you have a hw issue. Why don't you run this : http://www.systemreq...referrer/srtest
Choose Warcraft Frozen Throne for the test.
