game played on computer before, will not play

Post by jberky on 19th March 2010, 12:29 pm

Hello
We have been playing Zoo Tycoon complete Collection on this computer without any problems. Recently a virus affected this computer (antivirus soft) and I loaded Malware bytes Anti Malware which removed the virus from this computer. Since that time I have not been able to load Zoo Tycoon disc 1 to play. Here is what the game is doing: I have uninstalled then reinstalled disc 1 on the computer (both with the disc and add and remove feature on the computer). After download is complete I select play game, the microsoft game studios and blue fame games will play thru there parts then will show its will show the game is loading for about a second, then the screen will go blank and then return to my windows view (the view I see after computer bootup). I have tried several things to solve this problem, ie disc defragmation and cleanup, checked drivers and directx and several other suggestions that I have found online. I have read that disabling antivirus software may allow the game to play, I have AVG 9.0 and zoo tycoon ran with AVG was active on the computer. Do you have any other suggestions that I can try to resolve this problem? I have played other games on this computer after I removed the virus without any problems.

Hope you can help me out with this problem

thanks
Jim

Sounds like a driver is failing , video or sound drivers, try reinstalling them !

Other games play on this computer with no problems, would they still play if a driver was failing?

I think makxp is right, figure out which graphic card you have and try to install the newest driver for your graphic card ;).
