This time I come bearing problems related to compatibility. I'm trying to run some older computer games on my Windows 7 laptop ("Intel Core i3 CPU M330 @2.13GHz, 4GB RAM, 64 bit"), as well as on my desktop with Windows XP (2GB RAM, I think Intel Pentium ca. 2007...will have to check the rest of the stats).
On Windows 7, games keep giving me the 'Cannot find d3drm.dll' or something like that. I can't find that on this forum, and Google searches turn up suspicious free download sites and other frustrated gamer forums. Is this as simple as downloading that file to a system folder to get some quick Direct X fix? Compatibility mode, running in fewer colors/options, etc. didn't really work so I'm out of ideas O_o. In case it matters, games include Breed, Martian Gothic: Unification, Serious Sam, Will Rock...
On my windows XP computer, I get a message to the effect of "Legacy USB keyboard not detected". Similarly, I tried Googling answers and did a couple of BIOS changes at start-up, but the common answer of enabling the legacy USB keyboard wasn't an option- my computer only has USB devices or Legacy Mouse listed.
Thanks for the help!
