Re: image problems

Kiwiballs, are you able to reboot the machine and get into safemode? The go to control panel|system|devices|device manager|uninstall or delete the driver. You should download the newest driver from geforce. The driver from the disk are out of date. XP updates regularly. When you try to reinstall simcity make sure you disable any virus protection or spyware. Firewall should be ok to leave active. But shutdown the others for the install. Let me know what happens. Good Luck, Tim

Unable to play the PC game Crysis

AlanChong20, update you're video casr software. The radeon 9200 last update is listed at this link.
The date for the upgrade is Nov. 15, 2006 No more driver update are being made.
If you're game still gives you the same error try lowering the game graphics detail settings. If set to high, bring them down to medium. It very possible you're card does not have enough memory to play the game. The 9200 is a older card. It may be time to upgrade.
