Okay so my computer is having major issues running any game, says I'm missing .dll files, and the .dll is differen't for each game, shit I can't even run dead pixels LOL I've tried updating drivers, directx, etc etc, everything I can think of but nothing seems to help. I'm running XP by the way.

 

Help -_-

 

Another thing I am having trouble with is my computer will absolutely not boot any windows cd from start up, that's why I'm still on XP.

I'm sure you've tried it, but have you tried reinstalling the games? Or like Stuck said, downloaded the .dlls the programs want? :0

 

And I'm not sure if it'd work on your computer but you could always try installing some other OS through USB ^^ This guide is pretty good!! Reinstalling Windows and all your other software usually fixes the sorta problems you're having :3 Besides, you might wanna upgrade to 7 or 8 since MS dropped XP support :p <3

I doubt this will help but it does seem to fix a lot of problems. Have you tried cleaning out your registry? It could be trashed and causing you weird issues as a result.

Just search the dll in google and download it.Put the dll in the game folder and it will be fixed :-)

How can your computer not load any windows CD from start up?  Have you got it set to launch from CD drive before hard drive?

 

If you're happy losing everything, you may be able to create a bootable USB drive to boot to DOS and format your computer and then reinstall windows.

The fact that you're using XP means if you don't have all of the windows service packs and updates downloaded, you may not be able to get them as it's now a discontinued product from Microsoft (RIP XP) so you'd need to upgrade to Windows 7.

You can try downloading ccleaner, go to registry menu in ccleaner, click on scan for issues and then select all problems and click on fix selected issues.

^ These are your best options. 
If you dont have any luck with this, you will probably have to buy a new computer :(
