Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Hi, I Have a toshiba Laptop (1 year old) with a 32 bit operating system, vista home premium, ATI Moblilty Radeon HD 2600 graphics card. Problem im having is im trying to play older games like fallout 1, and various other games and cannot play because i keep getting an error message 'Error initializing video mode 640x480'. I try to right click on the executable file for the game and change the compatibility for older versions of windows- still doesnt work, i try to run game at 640*480 in the same way and still doesnt work, i try and run windows from system boot as 640*480 still doesnt work. I think this a known problem because when i google this query hundreds of people have the same problem is this problem fixable? Also this happened with newer games as well, i tried gta san andreus and still didnt work but problem said cannot support full screen mode, please can someone cure this horrible problem for me i will be greatly impressed if you can Cheers Lee Stynes

Im thinking your new pc may be too fast to run these games you can try to go online and search for an emulator to run these games through.

I have a video card radeon hd 2400 series for vista 64 bit compatibility, will it work on xp 32? what can i do to make it work?

Hi There,
Yes it will work with Windows XP operating system.
1. If you're going to change the Vista operating system to WIN XP 32bit, you have to find WIN XP 32bit drivers for *********** board as well as the HD2400. Install Xp 32 bit
2. For HD 2400 drivers just click the link. ATI The link includes Catalyst, OpenCL and Display drivers.
3. Wait for the download to finish, Run the 32bit display driver and follow onscreen messages reboot if prompted.

A. If you're going to use it in another machine just download the display driver and attach the graphic card.

Hopefully this information helps.
Thank you for using FixYa.
