If video for everything else looks ok, it might just be a driver issue... hopefully, you have Nvidia graphics as they are the easiest to find drivers for, you can go to their web site and basically have them scan your machine for the correct one.

for non Nvidia, i would just make sure you're current with your windows updates, usually they will patch your system with relevant drivers.

I already cracked the incredible hulk game but it says that i need to place the game disc on a drive

The procedure if you have the crack is to copy the crack file into the director folder...and usually it works ..
so ..if you have the crack see that it is just a executable file icon ..extract it if it is zipped..and copy that file in the folder of the game ..It will ask you if you want to replace the executable file ..and confirm ..after that strt the game from it ..or make another short cut for it ..on the desktop get to the director folder ..go to ..C drive /program files..and open the folder with the game .
You may try to look for other fix on the net ..there are threads with discussions about it ..and most of them have downloads for this kinda ..operation ..remember the crack is not something you need to install for games..but just another executable to full it and think it has a disk ..
Another thing you may try is to install daemon tool ..and play the game with the image of the game mounted into a drive ..This way the computer will not make the difference in having a disk or this image ..It will only see the files in a drive .

Why my Compaq Presario CQ20 have black part at both sides(left and right) when the time i open all games ?

The game is telling the PC to configure to a size that "LOOKS" the best for the game. Like 16:9 for dvd's on a HDTV. As games catch up they will fill up the whole screen. You can change it but it will look distorted,

I have a problem with my Samsung GT-B3410 regarding memory space. What happens is that once I install a few games (let us say 700kb with no problem, I already changed the JAR max size on my cellphone), it...

plug your phone into a computer with SD card in. find your game on your phone. either send/ move to SD card or whatever option you have. or you can try to cut it and paste into the SD card. Not all apps allows you to save to the SD and if they do, most of the time it is just memory, not the game.
Hope that helps

I have a Hyundai rear television HY5111W.I noticed that picture became distorted then disappeared. Can you help me fix it


Watching standard cable on an HDTV can be quite a shock; the images are likely to be in a smaller aspect ratio, and have grainy or pixelated distortions. Additionally, the use of non-HD compatible devices, such as a DVD player, VCR, or older gaming system, will produce a less than stellar picture.

If you've changed the aspect ratio or your television, or have changed the zoom in or out, you may be encountering distortion that would otherwise not be noticeable. Setting the picture to a 1:1 ratio and turning off any overscan can help ensure a better quality image.

If you're using a system that supports HD, such as a Blu-ray player or an HD-compliant gaming system without the use of an HDMI cable, the image may be distorted. HDMI cables transmit both HD quality digital images and sound over one cable, and provide the best possible picture A/V signals.

Im getting bad grpaics on games like shown in picture

try going in the games settings and increasing the anti-aliasing settings. these setting will combat image distortion in cases like this. if that doesnt work, you might want to lower your graphics settings, if that doesnt work, you need a better graphics card

When Playing Halo 3... The Screen Shrinks Down...

16:9 is the widescreen mode, the other size is 4:3 ratio which is what the game's native size, it is picture boxing by the plazma is showing the size as not to distort the image, to get the full screen picture, but make sure it's not the plazma's setting first - where it selects the size of the image, you may have the streched version on your normal play.

I have a game called "fable the lost chapters" and i get a black sreen after i leave the first town and then every thing gams can any one help me??

install the game again after saving ur game files where u have already reached. B'coz when u cleared a stage or save ur game in the game mode, a folder cotains saved game files saves ur games. so when u install a new copy of ur game then copy and paste that saved files in the dedicated game saving folder. u can find the saved game folder by keeping a sight to save file name in the game which u wrote while saving the game.

Game image distorted

Your PS2 is definitely broken. Either send it in to Sony to be repaired or buy a new PS3. Bummer. Sorry to hear about this.
