Try this, and let me know what happens. Go to start>run. In your run box type "dxdiag" without the quotes. When it opens up, click on the displat tab at the top. On the left hand side you'll see DirectX features. Make sure the DirecDraw Acceleration , Direct3D Acceleration, and the AGP Texture Acceleration is enabled. You might have something a little different depending on pc configuration but make sure everything in that category is enabled. You can test them if you like. There are buttons on the right to test them. If not enabled, enable them, click on save all information and exit. Try your game again. If this solves your problem PLEASE rate this as fixed. If it did not, do not rate yet. Just add a comment and let me know what happened. I'll be happy to assist you further. Thanks issac.

What should i do ,whenever i open chess in my laptop a message is shown on the screen hardware accelaration is either disabled or not supported by your video card?

Hello there Sona..
This is because the game software is trying to access hardware accelaration which it looks like your laptop does not have.
To stop it asking all the time, go in to your Chess game settings and switch it off. There will be some kind of tick box that is making it look for the hardware.
If you can see Hardware Accelaration in the settings either un-tick it OR choose Software Accelaration.

Hope this helps.

PS: if you cant find it, just post back and I can go through it with you.

Problem playing a computer game I bought

what game is it? sometimes your graphics hardware can stop games from working if you haven't got the right hardware. or sometimes it can be as simple as not having the right version of direct x installed on your computer. Check the requirements for the game on the back of the disk case then check that you have all of the recommendations that it asks for e.g. graphics card, direct x, harddrive space, 3d accelaration etc..
