I've just installed Quantum of Solace and can't get it to run. The cursor will be busy for a few seconds like it's about to start then nothing. I've read that this game has issues with XP (which I use) and Internet Explorer security updates, but I have none of these updates. I also downloaded msidcrl40.dll & d3d_37.dll which were supposedly meant to help but to no avail. My computer isn't very high-spec but I've known this game to run on a friends computer with pretty much the same specs as mine, and they also have XP. Please help!

Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core 4600+ 2.41GHz, 1.87GB RAM, GeForce 6150SE nForce 430 (512 MB). Like I said my PC is pretty old and it's basically stock, but this game still works on my mates PC and his is basically the same as mine if not worse.

well, off hand I would update your drivers and reinstall your directX and make sure you install the latest version you can when you do-however, on a cursory glance, Id say the problem is your video card-the 6150SE is a integradted card, am I wrong? According to the game specs you need a 6600 or above.

Ok ill try all that, but I'm pretty sure everything is up to date already. Yes it's integrated. On the back of the game case it has 3200+ or any 1.8GHz dual core, 512MB RAM & yes, GeForce 6600 or better. I just got the specs on my friends PC that runs it, and that has a Geforce 6200 Turbo Cache with 256MB.

the 6200 is a slightly better card, still not at the min. specs from the site-but the fact that its dedicated might be what gives it the edge to be able to handle the game while yours cannot. I used to have an old, dedicated ATI card that would play games it wasnt supposed to be able to, while many newer, integrated cards could not. Your CPU, and memory both exceed the game requirements, neither should give you a problem-my guess its that video card. My media machine has the same chipset, and I switched to a dedicated video card for a reason. For checking email, it was ok, for any kind of gaming, it wasnt all that great.

No problem. Watch the Newegg shell shockers, you can often find a low end card on it for around $10-15 that will do the trick.
