It just doesn't work is that because windows 7 sucks and doesn't play games

i have a Pentium 4 3ghz with 1 gb ram
with a nVidia GeForce FX5600 (256 mb ram)

is this up to snuff or is it windows 7

(i've also tried running the compatibility mode doesn't work)

    If you guys wanted to design a game that cause epilepsy you accomplished your job!

    Not happy with Vista, which you had the game running on?

    Have you installed...
    ... the latest DirectX Version?
    ... the latest drivers for audio, video and chipset?
    ... the latest Service Pack and security updates?

    If you want me to take a look at it
    Please start dxdiag to give us some information:
    Windows XP: Go to your start menu and click on run. Type in "dxdiag" and hit enter
    Windows Vista / 7: Press the windows key on your keyboard or click on the start menu. Type in "dxdiag" and hit enter.

    Now click on the button that says "save all information".
    It will prompt you to save a file. Save it where you can find it.


    Now you have two options to make it accessible to us. Pick the one that works best for you:
    [LIST=1]
    [*]If you know how, you can zip the file and attach it to a message.

    [*] You can upload it to Rapidshare and copy the link to the file into a new message.

    Can you make a screenshot of that?

    What graphic quality setting do you use in the game, and does it happen too when you set it to 1?

    Since the latest official SB Live driver is from 2003, i would suggest using the kX Project drivers.

    If the graphics problems continue to exist you could try an earlier version of the nvidia drivers. Uninstall the previous one and reboot before installing this one.

    It's quite possible you're getting these problems because of your graphics card. I had the Geforce FX5600 a few years ago and it would get annoying graphical issues for certain games. It's also a very slow card as well. For any slightly modern game back then, I'd have to turn all settings low and still only get barely passable FPS.

    I hate when such things happen. Do you have a digital camera you could use instead?

  • I'm probably an idiot for asking this but i've been looking all over the internets, my motherboards RAID driver is probably not installed would this have anything to do with my video card not working right?

    I've had other computers before where i would need to have drivers installed for the motherboard somewhere.. The only driver available for mine is a RAID driver. Could this be the problem?

    if it is the problem i have to run windows install again i guess which will be fantastic!

    The RAID driver should have nothing to do with it at all.

    What is your Motherboards Model and Manufacturer?

  • ecs 848p-a, i didn't think that would be the problem so....

    i'm just going to follow your previous instructions

  • got it going good...

    turned the graphics card down!!

    thanks for your patience and help
