It could be that the video card is not powerful enough or that you need to update the version of direct x that you have. Check your version of direct x by going to start, run (on the right hand side) and type in dxdiag and press enter, the first screen that will be displayed will have your version of direct x. If it is not as high as 9c then I suggest that you download direct x 9c from microsofts website or run a search in google for it. Download it and this will update your directx. Secondly when you are in the dxdiag program check under the display tab and make sure that 3d features are enabled. If they are not or you do not have this option (because it is greyed out), then you may need to upgrade your graphics card.

I hope this helps

Hi, The game, Nancy Drew: Danger by design, doesn't work in my laptop. Every time I try to play the game, the screen freezes but I can hear the music at the back ground. All the other Nancy drew games...


The first thing you should try, is to update both JAVA and Flash. If it uses those, that is likely the issue.

Here are the links:

http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/

Be sure to uncheck the boxes that install toolbars. Also, it wouldn't hurt to make sure that Windows is up to date. Click the Start button, click All Programs, and then click Windows Update.

When i play Nancy Drew:White Wolf of Icicle Creekall the things she says are whited out on the bottom of the screen. How do i fix this.


You may be able to adjust this problem on the Start Menu, go to Options> Display Options> ( or something like this[I do not have this game]) and try to adjust it.

Otherwise there may be something wrong with your graphics.

Hope this helps.

answer:your system is not compatible or your operating system

first of all make sure the game is compatible with your system.if the box says 256 ram have at least 380 or 512 for best performance.if the box said 1.00ghz and you have .89ghz proccessor the game won't work.if you wouldn't mind would you send me the specs of your computer and the game so i can determine if the game is compatible.i only need the processor ghz and the amount of ram,video graphics and the info on the game box.if you don't know how to get this info just email me at gamecrazy944@yahoo.comi will write a walkthrough for you.

Graphics do not display correctly


Has it worked before?

If so here are a few things you may need to fix / look at, since I doi not know how well you maintain the computer.
1st: Have you Defragmented your computer? If not this month, please do so ASAP.
2nd: How much free space is left on your hard drive? You need over 15% free space.
3rd: Have you cleaned out you cookies, temp Files & Temp. Internet Files?
4th: Every item you add or install anything on your computer, it starts running each time you boot up.
This eats up your limited power and processor.To see this you will need to use the CRTL/ALT/DELETE keys to open up your TASK MANAGER
On the right side you will see a TAB called START UP. Each item that is checked or ********** is running in the background.
You do not need this stuff running. Its a gift of Microsoft to make it start faster for you and is no longer a needed item since you have so much power.
Uncheck most if not all items, like MSN or YAHOO chat, Games and anything not directly related to the computer operation.
If it did run and all of the above are good then do a system restore to an date that you know it played.

GO TO: Start>>>>Accessories>>>>>System Tools>>>>System Restore
