maybe CPU but i'm not sure, i'm not sure what the requirments are for world of warcraft and HL2 DM

it might have stopped working because the games updated and your system just doesn't make the requirments anymore.

His CPU is a little weak. The rest is fine. Umm I would check your drivers. HL2 DM you can just blame Steam. It's probaly the reason. Check for Spyware to. They do all kinds of crap.
