EA Game ''Spore'' - Videocard & Driver Issue

Well, I can solve it but it is somewhat bad news. Basically your video card is not powerful enough. Here are the ATI specs from the EA website;
  • ATI Radeon™ series
  • 9500, 9600, 9800
  • X300, X600, X700, X800, X850
  • X1300, X1600, X1800, X1900, X1950
  • 2400, 2600, 2900
  • 3450, 3650, 3850, 3870,
  • 4850

    and here are NVIDIA
  • NVIDIA GeForce series
  • FX 5900, FX 5950
  • 6200, 6500, 6600, 6800,
  • 7200, 7300, 7600, 7800, 7900, 7950
  • 8400, 8500, 8600, 8800
  • 9600, 9800, GTX 260, GTX 280
    I would recommend buying a new video card. You can pick up a NVIDIA 8400 thru 8600 for about $30 or $40 from or sometimes cheaper with rebate.

    They are fairly easy to install.

    Good Luck.

    Screen goes blank

    is it possible for you to test the card in another omputer ? like a friends or something ?

    sound as if your card may be overheating...hence the need to restart the PC...normally if the card is faulty it will not work at all..

    take the side over off your PC and use a normal room fan to blow air into your box... if everything now works fine you need more fans to extract heat out of you system...

    Sapphire HD 2600 XT Driver Problems

    Just because you have a new video card with CD drivers does not mean the drivers are the latest. Go to Saffhire directly & download the latest driver software for you're card.

    Uninstall any older driver software before installing newer. Try not to restart the system between installs.
    And update windows before you install the new drivers. You do not need to install WinXP SP3. Unless you want too.

    Good luck!

    I think my video card wont dump its cache

    Have you tried un-installing and re-installing the game? EA has posted instructions for doing so on their support website. I've pasted the website link and instructions for doing so below. I've had to un-install and re-install at least six times myself, and have seen exactly the error that you have described occur twice. I hate this game for the crashes that occur regularly. My system plays Crysis fine, with no crashes, but crashes regularly from 2142. I wish that for once and for all EA would fix this game. It is the best battle simulation in the world, IMHO.

    Answer Use the supplied Uninstall shortcut from the Start menu that came with Battlefield 2142 or use the Add or Remove Programs to remove the software. If you encounter difficulty in removing the game, carefully do so manually as follows:
    To delete the configuration files and local copy of your account:
    1. Click the Start button on the Windows Taskbar.
    2. Select My Documents.
    3. Right-click the Battlefield 2142 folder and select Delete.
    To delete the game files (in the default location):
    1. Click the Start button on the Windows Taskbar.
    2. Select My Computer.
    3. Double-click the C:drive.
    4. Double-click the Program Files folder.
    5. Double-click the EA GAMES folder.
    6. Right-click the Battlefield 2142 folder and select Delete.
    7. Go to the following folder: C:\Program Files\InstallShield Installation Information (If you cannot find this folder you may have to go to Tools > Folder Settings and click the setting to SHOW hidden folders.)
    8. Right-click the folder named {ED50ECE9-EC54-4C05-B5ED-EE4741A9F2EC} and select Delete.
    9. Close all open windows.
    10. Right-click the Recycle Bin and select Empty Recycle Bin.
    To edit the registry and remove Battlefield 2142:
    1. Click the Start button on the Windows Taskbar.
    2. Select Run.
    3. Type regedit in the text field and click OK.
    4. Click File and select Export.
    5. Name the file Backup and make sure the Export Range is set to All.
    6. Click Save; you will now be returned to the Registry Editor window.
    7. Click the plus (+) sign next to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE.
    8. Click the plus (+) sign next to Software.
    9. Click the plus (+) sign next to EA GAMES.
    10. Right-click the Battlefield 2142 folder and select Delete.
    11. Back under Software, click the plus (+) sign next to Electronic Arts.
    12. Click the plus (+) sign next to EA GAMES.
    13. Right-click the Battlefield 2142 folder and select Delete.
    14. Just above EA GAMES, you will see a folder named EA CORE. Click the plus (+) sign next to EA CORE.
    15. Click the plus (+) sign next to INSTALLED GAMES.
    16. Click the plus (+) sign next to EA GAMES.
    17. Right-click and select Delete on any Battlefield 2142 folders.
    18. Click the plus (+) sign next to Microsoft.
    19. Click the plus (+) sign next to Windows.
    20. Click the plus (+) sign next to CurrentVersion.
    21. Click the plus (+) sign next to Uninstall.
    22. Right-click the key named {ED50ECE9-EC54-4C05-B5ED-EE4741A9F2EC} and select Delete.
    23. A Confirm Key Delete window will appear, choose Yes.
    24. Close the WindowsRegistry Editor.
    Battlefield 2142 should now be completely removed from your system.
