HI, I understand your issue. First, your PC specifications must match the game requirements. starting from the PROCESSORS to VIDEO CARDS etc. Check first the game requirements, and most of this issue is that you have to upgrade your video card you can upgrade that and buy a NVIDIA GEFORCE 1 GB or 2 GB memory or ATI RADEON in a computer shop. Also, to make sure upgrade your processor to AMD ATHLON X64 or have DUAL CORE 2.00 GHZ processors and RAM Memory to 2 GB. This will give you an excellent game experience on your PC directx 11 is latest...

I have windows 7. When i try to play Nancy Drew: Danger by design a box pops up requesting i insert disc 1. There is only one disc! It seems to work ok on windows xp. Ca you suggest anything to make it...


From the Nancy Drew web site:

Windows Vista/7 Support Installing older games (#1-13) with Windows Vista/7.
While our older games are not completely Windows Vista/7 compliant (notably games #1-13), there is a workaround which has been successful for most players. Please take the following steps to manually install.
If you had previously installed, uninstall the game and then delete all remaining game file folders from your computer, including emptying them out of your Recycle Bin. These files may be in one of the following locations:
C:\Nancy Drew\
C:\Program Files\Nancy Drew\
In your Documents folder: C:\Users\Username\Documents\
Once this is done, make sure you're logged on as an Administrator for your computer and manually install by taking the following steps:
1. Go to your "Documents" folder and create a new folder. Rename the folder with the title of the game.
2. Insert game Disk 1 in your disk drive and open "Computer" from the "Start" menu.
3. Double-click on your CD-Rom/DVD drive, look for a Setup or Setup Launcher Installshield file. Double-click this file to start the installation process.
4. When install asks what directory you want your game to install to, click "Browse".
5. Navigate to the game folder you created by selecting "C:" drive, then "Users" (or User name), then "Documents", then select the game folder.
6. Continue forward with the installation process, when asked if you want to install DirectX, check "No, I will install myself".
7. Upon completion, uncheck the "Play Now" box, click finish and exit setup.
For game titles #1-5, follow these three additional steps:
1. Right-click the game icon that is now on your desktop, select "Properties".
2. Under "Properties", click on the "Compatibility" tab.
3. Check the "Run in Compatibility Mode" box and then select "Windows 98/Me" from the drop-down menu.
You should now be able to open and play the game. If you installed an older version of DirectX with the game, please go to Microsoft's Download Center to download and install the latest version of DirectX for your version of Windows.

Have football manager 2010 it installed fine but wont run!


There are two different versions of the game available for PC and MAC, a 'strawberry' and 'vanilla' version, with both providing half a season of gameplay.
PC
OS: Windows XP/Vista/W7
Processor: XP: 1.4GHz or Faster / Vista/W7 : 2.0GHz or Faster
Supported Processors: Intel Pentium 4, Intel Core, AMD Athlon
Memory: XP: 512MB RAM / Vista/W7: 1.0GB RAM
Hard Drive Space: 2GB
DVD-Drive: 4x Speed
Video Card: 128MB *Supported Chipsets : (see below)
Sound Card: DirectX 9.0c compatible
Directx: Version 9.0c (included)
LAN: TCP/IP compliant
Input: Keyboard, Mouse

*Supported Chipsets - Nvidia FX 5900 Ultra or greater; ATI Radeon 9800 or greater; Intel 82915G/82910GL or greater. Earlier cards may only display 2D Match Viewer Mode and are not supported. Earlier cards may require the DirectX 9.0 SDK is installed to run the game. To download DirectX Software Development Kit click here.

Laptop versions of these chipsets may work but are not supported.

Mac
Intel Processor, OS X 10.5, NVidia Geforce 7300 GT / ATI X1600 Radeon

SOLUTION 1:
1. Right click on the game icon, select Properties and click the tab Compatibility,
2. Select the proper compatibility mode for your PC,
3. Run the game.
This may solve your problem.
SOLUTION 2:
While many different errors and problems may occur while attempting to run a game within Windows (from corruption in graphics and sound to black screens on loading or crashing) the majority can be quite easily fixed with some input from the user. To see General Windows Troubleshooting (for crashes, graphic and sound issues etc) to solve the problem click here.
SOLUTION 3:
Using Daemon tools software you can mount the game image (virtual drive) and by installing the game you can manage to play. Click here to download Daemon Tools.

I hope this helps you.

i have read that this game has compatability issues with laptop chipsets, are you lap or desktop?

Can not update DirectX


One thing you might want to try is seeing if there is an update to the graphics card driver. Check with Nvidia for an updated one. Sometimes that will allow the DirectX to load up and sometime the current DirectX will be loaded up in the driver update.
