Presume that's a game -check system requirements on cover of game? that you have enough Memory,Hard Drive space and your Graphics Card is ok for this application.

I cant play hunting unlimited 2008 it says sys_no_graphic


The error you are getting is an OpenGL error.

There are 2 ways to program a game: D3D (direct 3d) from MicroSoft or OpenGL which runs on any platform but isnt as sophisticated as D3D. You also have to pay for a license from MS so alot of budget titles are done in OpenGL.

Assuming you have it installed correctly it is likely a driver issue.

Get the latest driver from Nvidia (it looks like you have the 7300LE)

http://www.nvidia.com/object/winxp64_169.21_whql.html

If that doesnt work , you can try older driver versions until you find one that works. I had to do the same thing to get TimeShift to run.
You can find a list of these here.

Test Drive Unlimited Is Lagging even when offline


It could be the graphics card. It could also be the amount of disk space you have left and how much ram you have installed on the pc. To play highly graphical games on a pc you going to want to have at least 2 gig of ram. Go to www.crucial.com download the program to scan your computer and it will tell you how much ram you have and what type and speed of ram that your computer is compatible with. With new computers ram is pretty cheap more than likely you can get 2 gig for around 30 dollars at www.newegg.com. very trustworthy site

Pc gaming issue


Hi,
i,d suggest your problem, is with either the Graphics card. Or your Memory is very Low. I,d go 512 meg RAM ( minimum ) Go To 256 Meg ( AGP Or PCI-e Card ) minimum.
Install Direct X 9 Or 10 if the new card supports It.
Also check The Speed of the Memory.
Final solution, is to free up some items From The start-Menu.

Thankyou For Using Fixya.

Test drive unlimited is not for pc


The minimum hardware requirement for Test Drive Unlimited are: > Pentium 4 2.4Ghz or higher processor
> 1 GB of RAM
> a 256MB Graphics card (GeForce 6600GT or better)
> 8 GB of hard disk space
and it runs only on the windows platform. Does your PC meet these requirements? If it does, then, I suggest that you re-install your graphics card's drivers.

ok, have you tried reinstalling the drivers for your CD/DVD ROM? After reinstalling reboot the system if this doesn't work chances are it could be a hardware problem.

Hope this helps:)

System Recovery


If you've upgraded from xp or another earlier version of Windows, you cannot do a recovery. Recovery only works on recovering the present system.
If you have upgraded I would suggest saving off all your important files to a DVD, flash drive or onto another partition and then format and reinstall xp or whatever you had before.

Is the disk a dvd disk or and actual CD.
DVD's will not play on a CD drive and visa versa.
more so, problem might be your video settings are set wrong, or your video card and or PC processor does not support this game.
As always read the instructions on the game and it's support properties BEFORE you buy it.
Most software is not returnable once the shrinkwrap is broken.
good luck.
