First, ensure your graphics card supports this and you have the latest drivers installed.

Make sure you have the latest version of DirectX installed. You can find it by doing a google search. It is free.

Finally,
Click Here

1. Go to the link
2. Download The 3D Analyzer
3. Extract the files to any directory
4. Open 3DAnalyze.exe
5. Press the big SELECT button
6. Find your gamename.exe (or whatever it might be named in your game CD)
7. Select it
8. Under Directx 8.1 and 9.0 options - > Hardware Limits (cap bits) Check off emulate pixel shader caps
9. Hit run

Hope that helps! Should you have any further questions, please feel free to post them here.

I have just installed Spiderwick Chronicles. Upgrade Video Card?


Hello susan_eric,

Yes your card altho ok is not compatible with the game. You can try installing the latest drivers for your card and it may work but highly unlikely.

Sorry about your luck, thank you for choosing Fixya!

New Game I Bought


BAD IDEA to post youe email address !!!

May be a video card issue or directX not being at latest version.

What are the specs for you PC?

The min spec to run this game is as follows

Minimum System Requirements

OS: Windows® XP, OR Windows Vista™
CPU: Athlon™ 1500+, Pentium® 1.5 GHz, or faster (2200+ or 2.2 GHz for Windows Vista™)
RAM: 512 MB (1 GB for Windows Vista™)
Disc Drive: DVD-ROM
Hard Drive: 8 GB of uncompressed free space
Video: 128 MB video RAM, DirectX® 9.0c-compatible
DirectX® 9 Minimum card: ATI® Radeon® x700 Pro and above
DirectX® 9 Minimum card: NVIDIA® GeForce® 6600 GT and above
Sound: DirectX® 9.0c-compatible
Input: Keyboard and mouse

if your system is not at least at this spec the game probably will not run
