Could you please let me know the specifications of the Laptop/desktop that you are using and also let me know, if you have tried install and playing this game on any other Computer.

Check if you have latest DirectX installed on your computer:

1. Click Start > Run > Type "dxdiag" in the box and click Enter
2. In the System Tab > Check for DirectX Version
3. If you don't see DirectX 9.0c, then you can download it from the below web link:

or

http://www.softwarepatch.com/windows/directx.html

Please do let me know if it works, if not I would be glad to help you further.

You have alot of options. 1) Does your pc meet the requirments to run it? 2) The PC may be wondering why are you playing a baby game? (Joke) 3) Make sure your PC isn't damaged
4) Try using windows update to update your computer.

Sonic the Hedgehog CD PC version Windows 7 error. After installing the original gold colored Sonic the Hedgehog CD, and the patch for the program, Sonic CD loads the intro screen, then freezing, and a...


Hi, welcome to FixYa!

Forgive me, but I remembered that Sonic the Hedgehog a rather very old program, which is designed to be running in Windows 9x/ME. I bet that's why it's demanding an MCI driver because it's not compatible with Windows 7.

There are 2 solutions for this.

First choice is you can try to use compatibility mode to run this program. Right-click on the .EXE file of the games (or you can use also right-click on the shortcut on Desktop or Start menu), then go to Compatibility tab, check "Run this program in compatibility mode for", then choose "Windows 98 / Windows ME".

Second choice, you can use VirtualBox, install Windows 98SE or ME on it, and then install the DirectX, remember to install VirtualBox guest addition as well, configure Shared Folder so your Virtual Machine can access to your host OS, then install the game and played it inside your Virtual Machine.

I hope my solutions are working. Thanks for using FixYa!

Video Scrambles After Loading Screens


Sometimes things like this are much simpler than they seem, but since the problem appears so severe, it freaks you out. I'm assuming since you didn't state it that you haven't tried many if any fixes at all. So I will start with one of the most basic ones.

First try checking the settings on the video options for your video card... "display options" or the geforce console.. if you are using anti aliasing... what setting is it on? 2x? 3x? Other than that, try using the lowest video settings for the game and see if it still does the same distortions/freezing. if not, your settings may have just been too high, gradulally ease them up to the highest setting you can without it having problems during loading.

If none of that works.. try the following options.

1. Try re-installing the games themselves.
2. Try rolling back your video driver.
3. Try updating your video driver to the newest possible version.

Halo 2 for pc


The reason is, it only happens when you try to install Halo 2 on Windows XP.

The Game gets installed perfectly on Windows Vista

Because, I have installed and played the game on Windows Vista. But, when I de-graded my OS to Windows XP and tried to install the game. It gave me the same error message.

So, if your OS is Win XP then try install on Win Vista if you have it or on your friends PC.

But if you are already on Win Vista then please do let me know.

Also could please let me know whether your trying to Auto install the game or you are manually trying to install the game by clicking Step.exe?


I would be glad to find some help for you in this regard.
