Civilization 4 game

I recently purchased a new Toshiba laptop that had Vista installed. I also purchased Civilization 4. When I went to install, the last disk, the video, couldn't be recognized and thus the game couldn't be completly installed. Is there a patch, or some other action I can take to play the game? If not, can I return the game for a new game altogther? Thanks.

I had an issue with Vista and my video card. I had to go to the video cards manufacturers website and download the most recent driver for the card. Also if your game is open they won't let you exchange it for something else. I hope this works.

How can I install this game on my laptop when I've list the code?


You CAN'T! You need the code. If you purchased it recently, the code is on the envelope it came in. Otherwise, go out and download it as new!

Can't get it to work in vista


They just want you to buy a brand new one. Don't do it. If they can't help you, Make the controller RMA on their site, which means, they are forced to by law to send you a brand new one once they receive the controller from you. BTW, this is free, Except some companies, charge S and H. Good Luck. Please rate my solution.

P.S. Try it on another PC with XP, if you own one. If not, try a friends PC.

Drivers Emach T5230


I solved this problem completely later that day.
Here's how:

From the Emachines site I downloaded and installed the file:
RealTek_Audio_5_10_0_5152.

This dirver is for vista but it must also be for XP because it really worked well.

This can be found at www.emachines.com
click on: customer care > product support and downloads.

Then select desktops, T-Series, and T5230.
By clicking the plus sign [+] next to downloads below you will see a list of drivers including:

Realtek High Definition Audio Driver

be sure to click on the Driver File Download (36.29 MB) and not just the readme file.

download this to your computer and run the self extracting install.
Then right click on the MyComputer icon (on your desktop or windows explorer) and choose Hardware tab and Device Manager to verify that the RealTek audio device is working properly.

You'll see the other broken devices there of course.

I went to www.nvidia.com and downloaded:

nvidia is easy to navigate. Just click on Download Drivers

The GeForce 6150SE video card driver

From Option 1 select GeForce, GeForce 6 Series, Windows XP and click the Search button. Then click download now. to save the file to your computer so you can click on it there to perform the driver install. This made a huge difference in the quality of my display.

nForce 430 chipset driver installers

From Option 1 select nForce, nForce 4 Series, GeForce 6150SE/nForce 430, driver, windows XP. Then click search followed by Download Now to save the file to your computer for installation.

This took care of everything but the generic PCI device.
For that, I hooked my legitimate copy of Windows XP to the internet using my newly functional RJ-45 network jack and an ethernet cable and let windows find the driver for me. Which it did seemlessly. No More Yellow questionmarks in the Device Manager!

That was mostly painless.

I noticed that some quicktime programs didn't like my nVidia driver so I created an alternate hardware profile to use the generic windows video driver and that solved that problem too.

I didn't have to open the case on the emachine and I still have the Vista install disk that came with it if I want to go back.

I'm impressed that my games work fine on XP home when the didn't on Vista. I expected it to be the other way arround.

Vista OS


It does not work with vista at least not for me. And besides with XP and Vista you shouldn't have to install it anyway as both OS's have a feature called plug and play which means that when you plug it in via a USB port Windows Xp automatically recognize it and its driver. Thats one thing about XP thats so great XP just about recognizes every joystick and game pad driver there is without installing the pads software.
