    First a question. Are you running VISTA?

    if so, thats the problem and you will need to contact Microsoft tech support.

    If not go here:

    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/detai... and get the DirectX drivers.

    Since I have no idea on what all you have done, I have some questions / suggestions.
    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.

It could be the graphics card. It could also be the amount of disk space you have left and how much ram you have installed on the pc. To play highly graphical games on a pc you going to want to have at least 2 gig of ram. Go to www.crucial.com download the program to scan your computer and it will tell you how much ram you have and what type and speed of ram that your computer is compatible with. With new computers ram is pretty cheap more than likely you can get 2 gig for around 30 dollars at www.newegg.com. very trustworthy site

Test drive unlimited is not for pc


The minimum hardware requirement for Test Drive Unlimited are: > Pentium 4 2.4Ghz or higher processor
> 1 GB of RAM
> a 256MB Graphics card (GeForce 6600GT or better)
> 8 GB of hard disk space
and it runs only on the windows platform. Does your PC meet these requirements? If it does, then, I suggest that you re-install your graphics card's drivers.

Ps2 memory card wont work


check the back of the game cover to see how many blocks it will use to save the game data. Your memory card may not be big enough. You may need to buy a bigger memory card to save the data.
