I have an Intel Celeron D Processor 356, 3.33 GHZ, FSB 533 MHz. 80GB hard disk serial ATA interface, Integrated VIA Chrome9 HC IGP onboard graphics. Hardware accelerator is now on full but games are running really slow and it keeps telling me hardware accelerator is disabled. Games are, Oberon games: Solitaire, Spider solitaire, Minesweeper, Hearts and Purple place. Any ideas? Cheers

Run DXDIAG from the "run" menu & post back your findings. Even with a crappy on-board graphics chipset you ought to be able to wing Windows games like Solitaire.
