Unhappy newly bought machine making me cry !!!

hi.. ...this is my 1st post here......anyway lets talk business right away......I've bought this new computer ASUS motherboard(M2V-TVM)
and AMD 64 (AM2) 3000+ processor......512 DDR II RAM ....my problem is that though the performance of this is quite satisfactory but there r certain games which play in slowmotion.......but all these games used to run perfectly in my old P4 (intel 845G ; 2.4Ghz ; 256 DDR) machine ....... wat's more strange is that this new machine itself takes the default graphics options(for games when I first launch them) as high to medium .......there's hardly any option with low resolution selected. I've manually selected those low graphic details and played the game ....BUT..... the quality decreases(naturally) AND THE GAME STILL RUNS IN SLOW MOTION. I've even tried to install the latest graphics driver.......and also disabling all background appz(anti vir; firewall) .......BUT it doesn't help. It's doesn't do partiality to any particular genre of games .
It doesn't matter whether the game is system heavy or just a 'Virtual Tennis'..........so guys plz help me .........I'm counting on u .........don't disappoint me......I've expected much from this machine ......BUT u c......
PLZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ......

I've created two files (1. DirectX details & 2. Graphics details)
and posted them in Rapidshare......
if u need a detail information u can download it from here:
http://rapidshare.de/files/34948969/...ation.rar.html
(don't worry it's just 28 KB) plzzzzzzzzzzz help me.........

Well your link doesn't work and why can't you just post it on the forum. Nobody trusts a novice and people shouldn't be randomly downloading stuff. We're trying to maintain the integrity of this forum.

Anyways, have you install the chipset that came with your motherboard. And anwser what's the brand and model of the graphic card. Look into device manager and see what you're missing or any errors.

Your upload doesn't work, link is enter incorrectly. You must of missed my post.

Anyways, your video card seems like a low end POS though. You said even old games doesn't play correctly? Have you install the chipset drivers for your board?

My suggestion is that you get yourself a decent PCI x16 video card. Don't settle for less too if you're going to be gaming. Onboard video card doesn't cut it.

Link to your motherboard spec

onboard video card?!!

Surely, it is not supposed to be used for 3D gaming!
