no u shouldnt need any drivers for them anyway.
only thing you would need installed is your SATA cotroller drivers for your Motherboard. Usually come with the motherboard drivers.
if the games are only patialy installed so you have to use the CD to play them, that would definatly cause what your saying. in witch case its performing as it should. but i dont know if a full install with needing the CD to start it would cause such a thing. Because any games i have played recently, i just do a full install, and use a no-CD crack file, so i dont need to keep inserting the CD.
EDIT: o yea, just download, the 'compile package for floppy'. and extract it to a floppy. restart with the floppy in the drive, and if you floppy is set higher in the boot order then you HDD in bios, then it will auto run memtest.
you only need to press escape to stop the test.
the langer you let it run, the more pass's it can make, making a more acurate test.
each pass takes a long time, best to just let it run overnight.
