Hello, I have 2 more or less identical computers. One has XP Pro, 3.2gh celeron cpu, 80gb HDD, 512mb video card and wont play the game,,,,,, the other has XP Pro SP2, 3.2gh celeron cpu, 120gb HDD, no video card and does play the game, can you explain why the first pc wont play game. Both computers have exactly the same motherboards, all drivers are loaded.
I also have 2 other computers, 2.4 celeron cpu, 40gb Hdd, 256mb video card in one and a 128mb video card in the other and both these smaller machines play the game.
The name of the game we are trying to play is Magic Encyclopedia.
Any assistance would be appreciated
Thankyou & Regards

COD WAW has a minimum system requirements of the following:
CPU: AMD 64 3200+/Intel Pentium 4 3.0GHz RAM: 512MB (XP) / 1GB (VISTA) HDD: 8 Gigabyte
GPU: 256MB Nvidia 6600GT/ATI Radeon 1600XT
One main reason why you cannot play the game, is that Intel GMA 3100 is not capable of rendering the vertex shaders that has to do with lighting.
In order to play the game, you need to buy at least greater than the PCIE video card mentioned. It's that simple.
For example buy an ATI HD 4670 512MB or Nvidia 9500GT 512MB consider the memory.

Yes it looks like it, to run the C language you will need to dual boot Windows 7 and Windows XP. Or install only WIndows XP. Another idea is to install a Virtual Windows XP Operating system. Therefore XP running in a Window of Windows 7. Called virtualization.
However virtualization is not possible on this model of Intel CPU.
1. Video Driver for display adapters to be updated
2. Codec not available.. Try in a different media player..(E.g> KM player, VLC player, GOM player, KL mega codec)
3. Check the DVD in a diff computer/Laptop or toa DVD player connected to a TV set.
Sol for issue 1: You can get latest & official drivers from your computer manufaxcturer's site or you may opt for some third party driver agents available(Google it)
Sol for issue 2: All the players i mentioned are free apps.. So download and try it..
Sol for 3: If DVD plays fine in a diff machine, then issue with your computer.. if it fails to play in diff computer's then its purely a faulty DVD.
Sorry to say, your computer does not meet the minimum system requirements for this game. Here are the requirements
Windows XP (Service Pack 3) or Windows Vista (Service Pack 1) / Windows 7
Intel Core 2 Duo 1.6 GHz or faster
1.0 GB (Windows XP)
1.5 GB (Windows Vista/Windows 7)
Hard Drive Space
6 GB of free space
256 MB Video Card, with support for Pixel Shader 3.0. Recomended: ATIRadeon X1800 XT 512MB or greater, NVIDIAGeForce 7800 GT 256MB or greater.
DirectX 9.0c compatible
512 Kbps or faster
DualShock 3, Xbox 360 controller keyboard, mouse, Wheel
the question arrives are do you have a video card on your board or built-in graphic adapter. co'z if you have a built-in just look for the installation kit but if you do not have just surf it on the internet. If you have a video card look for its installation CD kit but if not again look for it on the internet to find it more accurately
That is most likely it - the cpu is enought to run video. I have 512Mb on my old laptop and it plays video perfectly I think your going to upgrade this ones memory so it wont be a problem.
Cpu is good enought to play dvd and video.
Video card if no drivers are installed then it will be very sluggish and poor quality. if even after the right drivers are installed depending on what brand and model card it is, it may be too slow or the issue maybe in codec and media player.
try installing FFDSHOW into the computer and see if it improves (it wont help if the drivers aren't installed for the video card so make sure that is solved first) Download ffdshow latest here http://www.free-codecs.com/download_soft.php?d=4786&s=50 (for other users: its the latest version at the time of posting on may 18. check google for new version)
