Windows Vista problems with Tiger Woods Golf 2005

I have recently purched a Dell computer and loaded TW2005 Golf. Had it working and now, nothing. The game seems to want to start, I get the picture of the course, and then shuts down. Any ideas?

    I just "upgraded" from an XP machine to a Gateway Q6600 running vista. This is on a machine that I keep offline for safety purposes.

    Installed my TW05, started it and I get the initial TW 2005 intro screen, my disc drive seems to speed up and then the intro screen disappears and everything powers back down to normal and nothing happens.

    The video card is a NVIDEA GeForce 8500 GT and I don't know how to check for the directX.

    I'd appreciate any help

1. what graphics card are you using that is compatible for vista
2. download updates and the patches from dells web site for your graphics card
3. update direct x from microsoft this is also important for gaming on vista
4. reboot your machine and hopefully this will work

Program failure when downloadng pc games

Well Vista is prolly the issue, there are several programs that run on my system that vista will simply not allow me to load. Try loading xp?

Try lookin for a fix on the tiger woods 08 site, and consult for solutions to gaming issues, but mostly I'd say it's just Vista being a terd.
