"Application has now crashed" message with all graphic heavy applications
Every time I attempt to run anything requiring a little bit of graphical wizardry I get the same message time and time again:
"The application has crashed the application will now terminate"
We're talking anything from my wife with The Sims 2 or my daughter on Dora The Explorer & The Magic Turnip People or whatever the hell the latest one is.
On the specs side of things we're on my own home-built system running an Athlon Sempron 2200, with 1GB of RAM. Operating system is XP on an 80GB hard drive and it all runs from a 300W PSU. I feel it's worth mentioning that when all I do is surf the NET or download, this thing can run for days on end without so much as a hiccup. Hence my belief the problem lies with the GPU.
An e-mail to Nvidia advised us to clear out the drivers and install the latest ones which we duly did. After the problem persisted, a follow-up e-mail saw us receive the verbal equivalent of a shrug as our reply.
Is it time to admit defeat and buy a new one or do you think there's life in the old card if I know where to look? Any help you could provide would be vastly appreciated.

I think you have not follow the basic rule. first check your system configuration with iTunes application requirement.
If possible update your system. Now you can download a Apple Application Support file and if not helpful then read this tutorial if you have some technical knowledge https://discussions.apple.com/docs/DOC-6562#qtmoviewin
and follow Mac Technical Support for more guidance.
There is a large range of graphics card on the market in both performance and prices to match. The graphic card that suits your requirements depands upon what you want in terms of performance and the application that requires a particular level of graphic capability. Check the software documentation or games program for the graphic card that is required to run with their program. Generally games programs that require photo realistic rendering require high end graphics cards. You may select a graphic card that is a bit above your current requirements to cover for future requirements. I suggest you Google search the Internet or go to your computer shop to see what is available that meets your requirements. You can spend a lot of money on a very high end graphics card when a lessor graphics card would still suit your requirements and not burn a hole in your pocket.
Hi! Normally you missed to think about system requirements while purchasing application software. Suppose if you are system is 32 bit operating and your application is 64 bit, then you are going to get words such as "doesn't support" / "not compatibility". please consider to go through your application manual along with laptop operating settings, Don't worry about laptop and application; have fine
You can try running the 16 bit app in compatibility mode. Right click on the app's exe, click on properties, and select compatibility, then tick the box labeled "run in compatibility mode", then select Windows 98 from the now available drop down box.
The following was taken from http://www.busdrivergame.com/support.php#14Based on the below description, I believe your problem would be solved by updating your video card drivers. The ones that ship with the card on cd are always very old. Here is a link to get the new drivers from NVIDIA.You did not say, so I will assume you have Windows XP, if so, here is the link for the most recent driver:http://www.nvidia.com/object/winxp_175.19_whql.htmlIf you do not have XP, then go to this link and find one for you OShttp://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-usIf this works, I would appreciate a rating, I am new to fixya and would like to get a good rating. Thanks and Good Luck!!14. I get a message saying: We are sorry, but the operating system failed to provide the window to render game graphics in. Bus Driver immediately crashes with a Prism3D error.
There are several possible causes for this to happen. In most cases, the critical element of resolving the problem is upgrading video card drivers. (See #8 above)
Reportedly, some computer vendors ship new machines with the system preconfigured, but without proper drivers for the particular brand of 3D accelerator card installed, including OpenGL support. Make sure to always have proper up to date 3D card drivers installed.
Upgrades of certain Windows components (upgrade of DirectX, a Service Pack application) may require driver reinstallation afterwards.
You may have your desktop color depth (Color quality) in Windows set to 256 colors. Make sure you have Windows running in 16-bit or 32-bit color depth.
You may be using a very old computer with hardware capabilities below minimum specifications required to run Bus Driver.
check the event viewer by going to start>right click my computer>manage ... click on the left pane whre it says even viewer and click on applications.. look for a red ballon with a white x at the time when your application crashed and double click on it (there may be a few of those if it has crashed before.. and not all of them may be about the the application you're troubleshooting.. so read a little bit on the error and see if it's related with your problem and post the information you see there. or google the error code.
