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.

My Nancy Drew computer game won't work


Hi longview924,

Unfortunately there is no way to make that game run on your mac. Your mac uses the older powerPC architecture (all G3, G4 and G5 macintosh machines use this architecture) but the game requires that you have a mac using the newer intel architecture.

I found the details of the system requirements here:
http://www.buzz99.com/1167/nancy-drew-trail-of-the-twister-system-requirements/

Intel and PowerPC processors are very different in how they work (Intel chips are CISC chips and powerPC chips are RISC chips), which is why there is no way around it. This is also the reason why apple dropped support for the powerPC architecture in mac OS 10.6 upwards.

Without meaning to sound harsh, it may be time to consider an upgrade - macs are very expensive but the intel macbooks are leaps and bounds faster than the powerPC range :)

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://www.java.com/en/download/inc/windows_upgrade_xpi.jsp

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.

Hi!

Go to "My Computer" icon that is on your desktop, double click on that, and you should see the icon of your game under the correct CD Rom letter.

Double click, and it should start.

Good Luck!

if you desperately want to play nancy drews that have that problem, there is a way but this way youl have no sound but the game will still play.
Go into the directory where you installed the game and then o into the game.ini file. it should open in a notepad.
go to sound system is active=1.
change the 1 into a 0. then enjoy. the game may have no sound but its still the game ayyy
nd dont try and change the volume or else the game shut down.

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.

Nancy Drew game white wolf -video flashes by so text not readable


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
