Solved Game issues

Post by ViKtory on 9th November 2010, 1:32 pm

I bought a new game. I installed it correctly, I have the DriverX in the last updated version. Yet, when I try to open the game, It shows me a black screen for about half a second, and it goes off. Any help/suggestions?

Your computer goes off, or just a game ? Did you tried to update Graphic Card driver to newest version ? Also, what's the name of that game ?

The game goes off.
My GFX card is Intel(R) G33/G31 Express Chipset Family and I'm not sure how to update it.
The game's name is Monster Jam.

Umm.. When I selected the download button for G33 driver and the "Check your system for the latest updates" button, the "Installing" text with that moving bar below seems to go on forever. And yes, I have downloaded Java. So...

After I installed that update, it said I need to do a restart.
I did so, and after that when that "Welcome" thingy appeared, I was left with a blank screen. Nothing else.
My PC din't respond, so I switched off the main power. Then I switched it back on, booted my PC and tried to play. Also did re-installs. It failed.

And also, I have the same issue with my game "Prince of Persia : The Sands of Time". But "POP : The Two Thrones", wich is a later installment to the POP series, works fine. It had higher requirements than SoT, but it worked.. I wonder why.

And if it's my comp's fault, please let me know Big Grin
I'll have to return those both games to the CD shop..

The game is not a problem. I have few things on my mind, but i'm not sure that's your problem. Let's try.

Maybe it's a Graphic Card problem or maybe System. I still wonder why do you have Windows Vista, because Windows 7 is much better ? Smile

Go to Start > Run > type sfc /scannow

You have to hit space between c and /. Try again.

Also, you can open Command Prompt and than type that command.

I did leave the space.

When I did it in the CMD, it said some cra*

I ran CMD as an admin, and it started the scan.

*EDIT*
Done scanning, no good results.

It looks like a big problem. Graphic Card won't recognize new Driver update, Windows don't have problem.

Let's try to remove your Driver and install Fresh one, not just Update.


  • Open HijackThis and go to Main Menu.
  • Click on "Open the Misc Tool Selection"
  • Click on "Open Uninstall Manager"
  • Click on Save List button.
  • Save your file anywhere on your computer and Copy-Paste me whole List in your next reply.

Heya,

Please delete next software :

  • Intel(R) Graphics Media Accelerator Driver
  • Xfire (remove only)
Btw, if you using Game Booster for gaming, it sucks.. Delete it if you like.

Install new driver for Intel Graphic from Intel's website.

And just as a side-task, some games(which don't work) won't get off my computer, no matter how much I try to uninstall them.. If I mention the software's names, would you mind to help me remove them?

Use Windows Installer Clean-Up Utility for that ;)

I don't know what to say. Use Windows 7, not Vista.. It's not problem with your graphic card, because you can boot up windows normally and you can access some games. It's mainly OS problem.
