Sir please reinstall your game if doesnt succes try this
Copy the DATA folder from the CD to the "C:\Program Files\The Learning Company\Oregon Trail 5" folder (assuming that is where you installed the game)
Inside the copied DATA folder, RIGHT click on the MOVIES folder and choose Rename. Call it anything you want except MOVIES... Press Enter.
In your "Oregon Trail 5" folder, find the file called OREGON5.INI and open it (double click on it).
Change the rsrcpath line to rsrcpath=Data and then SAVE and EXIT the file.
Now, when you play, you will have black screens where video should be, so you can just click the mouse to get through them. Sometimes, you have to click more than once, so click be careful and be patient...
Good Luck! If you need more help or further instructions, PLEASE do not hesitate to as

To go fishing, you need a fishing pole! If you don't have one, or lost
it, then you will have to buy one or trade for one. You can get a
fishing pole in Independence, where you first start off. Make sure you
do not throw it away by accident!
If you are not catching anything, try another part of the river.
Be sure to note your location before you start to fish! If you try to
fish in a desert, but not even you are that unknowledgeable, you
probably will not find a stream. You will also lose a day of travel.
If you catch a fish (which you will) you will see a message about the
type of fish you caught and how much it weighs. The computer rounds
down, so a 3.9 pounder is the same as a 3 pounder, unless you catch
more fish to balance it out. The guidebook is a handy reference for
more information, not that you need it.
Like hunting, point toward the edges of the screen to move left or
Point at the spot you want to fish and click.
To cast, hold down the mouse button until the pole disappears and you
get a view of the fish underwater.

I remember playing one of these games ages ago. This game is quite dated and only seems to work on very specific NVIDIA drivers. I know you have tried the old ones, but have you tried version 61.77? You can get that here. Might be worth a shot.
Aside from that I would say it probably doesn't work any more on a newer hardware - hence the fish and book errors.

This is a main issue if you are using Windows Vista.

To do so:
1. Open Windows Explorer.
2. Locate the application executable.
3. Right click the executable and click the Properties option.
4. Select the Compatibility tab.
5. Select the Run This Program in Compatibility Mode option.
6. From the drop-down list, choose the operating system you ran before upgrading to Vista.

I'll try to put in some help... After looking at the list of comments you tried the patch for your game. you can also try these ideas. Right click on the desktop... go to the bottom and click "properties".... then click "Settings" tab on top and then click "Advanced" on the bottom Then (this differs from computer OS from another) then click "Troubleshoot" and adjust the HARDWARE ACCELERATION slider to a notch slower (you might have this under a different tab like "Performance") Sometimes a game runs a little better if the graphics card is slowed down a little bit. Try it after one notch...if it still does it...move it down another notch. or if you want to see if it works at all...go ahead and slide it to "NONE" and try it.
If it does bump it up one notch at a time until it starts giving some trouble. You can go either way. And if that doesnt work then see if you have several drivers to choose from for your Nvidia card. the card also might run better with an older version or a newer version. just something to consider. Most poeple think they NEED the latest and greatest drivers for their hardware when they should just leave them alone and only update them when they have issues. Consider the Drivers for your card as they came as the "old"one and any "Updates" as newer ones. to go back to an older one its called "Rolling back Driver" and going forward is known as an "Update Driver".
I hope this will help you out. and SOMETHING works for you. Keep posting comments about what you tried and we will keep posting potential solutions.
