Getting really mad

I just recently bought  a game. it wouldn't work so i took one of my other games and tried it again, still it wouldn't work. i'm getting really mad. i think it has something to do with my D:\ drive. but when i tried to start it manually it said that nothing was in the folder. and the game works fine on vista and i have all the system requirments. is it that my hard drive isn't reading the disk? how do i fix it?

Video game color dull

First guess: Your video drivers need updating. Go to Resist downloading from but see right underneath where it says to download from Slimware Utilities. Download and install. Run the program and do a scan. See if there's a better more up-to-date driver for your video sub-system. If so, SlimDrivers will let you know in the scan results page then let SlimDrivers do the update for you. You'll need to reboot. Do so and try your game again to see if there's improvement. Your NVidia software kit probably also will get updated at the same time with the driver. If not, go get the update for that utility too once the graphic issue is solved. Attack one problem at a time. Notice too that SlimDrivers will most probably find a dozen or more drivers in need of updating. Again, attack the main problem first. Don't try to do more than that as you begin.

Good luck.

UBYTE4N vertex data doesn't support my computer

Try updating your video card drivers to the latest ones and also update to the latest version of directx.

If you do those two things and call of duty 4 still wont' run then that means the video card doesn't support the game.

Game doesn't run without dvd and doesnt run smooth!!!!

the first question, its a a copy protection, no its better to play with the dvd if you actually own the game.

the other question, lower the video settings and quality settings to get more performance on the cost of quality.

My assassins creed wont load????

well the game must meet the minimum requirements of ur system. even a slightest decrease in ur video card configuration or direct x version or even the required memory then it would fail to turn up and re installing it again and again will not solve the issue.even just buying a new video card will not help. ur desktop MUST meet all the requirements of the game.
