Hi!
This behavior can occur if a hardware component malfunctions, or if there are damaged or incompatible drivers installed. As with VISTA!
To try to resolve this behavior, use the following troubleshooting techniques. Because Windows can display only basic error messages when hardware malfunctions occur, troubleshooting can be difficult. Most equipment problems center around the motherboard, the RAM on a motherboard or on an adapter, or the cache memory on a motherboard or on an adapter.
Remove any adapters that are not required to start the computer and run Windows. In many cases, you can start your computer with only the drive subsystem controller and the video adapter.
Let me know.

When I try to play jeopardy it goes to blue screen of death


Blue screen of death generally indicates a hardware problem. Does it happen with other resource intensive programs? I would lean towards a bad ram module, or possibly a bad on-board graphics processor (if you dont have a graphics card)

How to activate Bejeweled 3


i bought bejeweled 3 from popcap, they are being bought out and do not care about activating reinstalls due to necessary hardware changes (hard drive, motherboard) at this time, they have no tech support, e-mails to thier help go unanswered. Your only hope to activate, at present, even if you bought it legitimately, is to crack it.

When i click on play the game says could not initialize the render


Marine Sharpshooter II (PC)

The Bug:


Error message: "Could Not Initialize the Renderer"

What that essentially means is: your video card does not properly support the features required by Marine Sharpshooter II. Specifically, your card does not support Hardware Transform and Lighting functions, often referred to as Hardware T&L. Essentially, it's a type of processor, or "renderer," of the complex math equations that the video card handles instead of the main CPU.

The Fix: You need at least a nVidia Geforce 2 or ATI Radeon 7200 video card for Marine Sharpshooter II.

Computer games hestitate frequently.


This is due to using outdated hardware. Its not necessarily any one thing. Sure, more RAM and a new video card (even an upgraded processor if possible with your main board) will help. But if your computer is 5 years old, you need a new one for gaming purposes.

I've seen your problem countless times, and if you don't have an upgradeable computer, or its a name brand pc, you will need a newer one.

The reason it seems to get worse, is that #1, your hardware just gets older as time goes on, and #2, games become more sophisticated, resource intensive, and have higher system requirements.

Your computer can no doubt handle a lot of things without issue, but games, anything video intensive, or that require a high % of RAM, processor usage, or video usage are going to give you problems.

Not responding?


if the game is brand new its not the game. the most likely reason this happens is because your computers graphics card is not sufficient, what is your graphics cards memory? the brand? model? if you do not know this, how old is your computer? when did you get it and when was the last time you updated your computer with new hardware?
