Mode not supported

I have installed a game "age of empires III" and when i start the game the screen goes black and the massage "mode not supported" is popped up.
the game is playing because i can hear the sound of it.
please help.
i am desperate.
I have the same problem. The installation states that it loaded properly, but when I try to play the game the same message pops up. I am trying to play the game on a laptop - could this be the problem?

    Sometimes it is good enough to check game creator's web site if there are game patches. Game patches used to repair some functionality or stability problems of the game.

    Another issue is to chech if you have the latest DirectX version

Check out the system req. of the said game. probably your laptop didnt meet the recomended system req. of the game. this happens when not enough memory from your system or your video card.

Try the fix I've described in this link:

if that doesn't work, try this next one:

You can also try to start the computer in safe mode and do a system restore back to when you know it was working. (Just a hint--try this first!!!!)

Does dskchck & freezes if cancelled goes black & only cursor show


That's a common problem with Vista...you'll need to restart your computer. Start back up in safe mode...by pressing F8 at the boot screen. then restart your computer normally through the start menu. After this I would find a good copy of Windows XP Professional and back up my data, and install XP over vista.

Computer starts then goes to black screen and system recovery wont work error code 257'


Hi,
The display drivers maybe corrupt.

Boot the machine into safe mode. Right click on My Computer (XP) Computer (Vista) and select manage from the sub menu.
When the window pops up select Device Manager.
A device list will populate. When it has look down the list for Display Adapters. Click on the + icon next to Display Adapters to it expands. Right click on the display adapter and select uninstall.

Restart the computer and let it boot in normal mode.
If it boots in normal mode let it detect the Display and install the drivers for it.
I would be a good idea to update the display drivers via the Dell Support website


Regards.

Boot into safe mode by tapping the F8 key on startup, once you're in safe mode, run the system restore tool (usually in start -> program files -> accessories -> system tools -> system restore) to a few days earlier and restore. After that, install an Anti-virus application, such as AVG Anti-Virus, and scan your computer to remove the problems.

Hope this help!

Need more info. The intro video requires less resources than the game itself, so thats no indication.Without knowing more about your sys, It sounds like your system doesn't conform to the minimum system specs for the game. Or there are apps that are using resources preventing your game to run. Go to www.tweakguides.com.

I purchased Age Empires and when placed into computer nothing happens


Sometimes when you buy a game, they games do not automatically load to install. The easiest way of fixing that. Is to open your "My Computer" and click on the disk drive. Which should say whatever current disc you have in there. In this case it would say Age of Empires. Click on that. The install screen should then come up and and once the game is installed you should be able to play it.

If it does not. Make sure your computer's graphic card is able to run the game. Also check the ram and CPU minimum specs.
