    SOLVED!

    The graphic card seems to have loss the capability to run Minecraft. At the moment, this is one thing that can't be used, I'm not so sure about any other games. I'll post updates.

    Edit: It's not just Minecraft, the graphic card itself must be having problems since I checked some other games as well. Well, I should have guessed that in the first place. When I opened Alien Swarm, the game just freezes right when I open it. As for Minecraft, the colours and such just goes all insane. What could have caused all this?

    Post a screenshot of minecraft. Try (re)installing latest drivers for your card.

    Re: Problem with the graphic card

    How do I get to reinstalling it?

    Edit: Here's an error screenshot of Minecraft.

    [tn=700:azl2kfk4]http://filebox.me/files/wcrmfwipm_Error.png[/tn:azl2kfk4]
    It was displaying very odd colours and shapes. The game was all laggy as well which has never happened before. Shortly afterward, the desktop itself started to display odd colours and the computer has restarted all on its own.

    I've read elsewhere that it might be because the graphic card is old. Might that be it..?

    Check to see if your graphics card is overheating. If you got a program that monitors your computer temperatures then open that while you have a game running, or else open your computer case and place your hand near your graphics card or even touch it really lightly to see if it's getting overheated.

    Well, when I touched the Graphic card, it was warm, but not so hot that I had to take my hand away. And also, the computer suffered from a virus attack a while ago and the internet browser can only run quite slowly.

    Update

    Now the entire screen is messing up, and as I said earlier, the computer is restarting on its own.

    Alright, after a long process of fixing the computer with great help from someone over Teamspeak, the problem is finally solved. I do appreciate the help people tried to lend me.
