Question about HP Compaq Presario SR2150NX PC Desktop
I bought a new computer recently and i am having problems playing some new pc games on it,i seem to meet all of the system requirement that are stated on the games'box,but when i go to start the game up it says-prism3d engine has stopped working,and it wont even let me start the game,i thought that maybe my graphics card wasnt up to snuff,but when i try to update it ,it says that its current and working fine,but some of my games work but others dont,which really baffles me.the game is hunting unlimited 2008,its minimum requ are-pentium4 processor ,which i have,256 mb ram,which i have160gb,1gb hard drive space,i have that also,direct x 9 or better,which i have,but i am sort of sketchy on the rest-64 mb graphics accelerator,not sure if i have this,and 64mb direct x graphics card,mine is a ati radeon xpress 1100,not sure if thats good enough.
I had the same problem with my computer too . Start playing the game and in about an hour I have the same error message "prism 3d stoped working" twice or more . I have a Intel core 2 duo 2.13ghz , 4gb ram and 1 gb graphic card so there's not a problem with system requirements . The only thing that really worked for me was download the update for Direct X 9 @ this link
So far I played 18 Wheels of Steel for about 2 hours straight with no problems .

My best Suggestion is to take a look at www.srtest.com You can see your system's compatibility with most games. The one you are looking at is probably there.

Check your virtual memory. it may not be allocating enough space on your hard drive to properly run. also there's a screen for software compatibility. programs that used to run flawlessly on win 98 may not run on windows xp or vista.
