    installed and everything but when i click play a little window pops up
    and another one saying Oblivion has stopped working. Can someone help me
    on how to fix this?

  2. First thing I notice is that your RAM could use an upgrade! :) Also, what
    kind of video card are you running? You may need to either update drivers or
    upgrade the video card to something that can handle Oblivion. A lot of
    times, HP computers will only have a basic video card (and it sounds like it
    if your PC only came with 1 GB of RAM) that cannot handle many 3D games.

    Good call, I overlooked the ram thinking video.

    Post the model number of the computer it's usually on a sticker on the
    side of most HPs, it's like Media Center a123n or something like that.

    Video card upgrade, ram upgrade - might be necessary just to get the game
    to run.

    You can try getting updated drivers for the video card in the meantime,
    go to http://support.hp.com - find your computer model number using
    search then download the video drivers from the downloads section.

    http://www.microsoft.com/directx - get the latest directx files, you want
    to follow the links to DirectX for Gamers (not developers), and download
    the latest directx should net you the file DXWEBSETUP.EXE, run that,
    follow the prompts while online.
