Looks like you need a more Modern Card to play with it?

What exactly do you have as your Card?

Other System Specifications would Help too!

:thumbsup:

Your PC definitely has some type of video card, how else would you get a picture on your PC monitor. In order to suggest a card, we need to know which one you have now. There are several ways to determine what you have now. One is through DirectX, which you say you have. If you have XP click start, run, then type in dxdiag and hit enter, then click on the Display tab. If you have Vista, click start then type in dxdiag and hit enter, then click on the display tab. This will allow you to tell us which graphics card you have but it might not be enough.

Intel extreme graphics means onboard video, no separate card unfortunately. Hopefully there is a slot open for an upgrade.

You need to have a PCI-Express slot or an AGP slot open in order to get a recent video card.

hi abacus.(I think) I followed the directions to the dxdiag window and hit the display tab. I have an intell extreme graphics from the intell co. Also a chip by the same descripti0n. It seems to be bad news according to one reply here but it may be partially solved. I got the game set up with every thing working except the ball launch. I hit the space bar and the ball only goes 3/4ths of the way up?? I'll putz wwith it ssome more, Who knows?? Let you know.

What is the make and model of your computer?

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
