Re: need bigger video card
If the built in video card uses shared video ram (most do), then there will be an option in the BIOS setup to change how much ram is allocated to the video card, and how much is used by the host system. Raise the video ram to 64mb, and you should be in good shape.
If you go into setup at boot and there is no option in any of the menus for this, then you're basically out of luck. Laptop video cards are proprietary, and not upgradeable, in all but the most high-end modern systems.

You can fix this problem by going into your control panel and removing Age of Empires 3 using the uninstall program utility. Then go into your documents and delete any folders found in Program Files/Microsoft Games folder that are related to Age of Empires. After that reinstall Age of Empires 3 and then try to install the expansion. Hope this helps!
you can if ur advent is running a windows format, if it is a linux based, you will need a linux copy, but yes you can! you have to install the game to the sd card, just like you would to a regular hdd. I have the original warcraft and warcraft 2 on an sd card, that i use with my ASUS mini....www.computereworld.com
Age of Empires 3 requires a decent computer to run. If im correct in understanding what you are saying, you graphics card may not be up to date. This is what happend to me on several games. All i had to do was update my video card drivers and it worked.
The recommended requirements are:
- Microsoft Windows 98, ME, 2000, XP - 512 MB of RAM
- 2.0 Ghz CPU
- 128 MB 3D video card - 1.5 GB of extra free hard disk space - 32x CD-ROM drive - DirectX 9.0c(important) - DirectX 8.0 compatible sound card
- 56 kbps Internet connection for online play
If you PC has all of the above or better, it should work perfectly.
If you do not have those requirments, download a 3D render that acts as a card for your computer, making your computer play games it orignally cant handly. I recommend "Swiftshader". Just type in google and go to there site, and download a demo. their are harldy any restictions on it apart from a splash logo in the side. when you extract, place the "d3d8", and the "d3d9" files in the root (main folder) of the game. Then run!
This method is good if you have a good amount of ram (more then the game requirements)
