    guys guys, i have a

    AMD athlon 64 3500+
    geforce 7600GT
    2gb ram

    after installing vista i tryed installing my geforce's drivers, i use 91.X
    if i remember right, however the drivers arnt recognized by the os, after
    rebooting its like i didnt install the drivers at all, when i go to
    properties>display settings>advance> i dont see the aditional nvidea tab with
    all the options, i tryed unistalling the drivers, and installing the latest
    drivers from nvideas site that didnt help either, also tryed the windows
    vista compatible nvidea drivers and didnt work 2.
    I also tryed runing counter strike 1.6, but it starts up and crashes
    immidiately after 3 seconds.
    so i was wondering if any1 had the same problems (with the drivers, and
    runing games like cs) and can help me out.

    thnx

    Yes, as others on this board have said but I would like to add that a game
    that I was having issues with in Windows XP (XIII - it would load level 3)
    plays without issues in Vista Ultimate.

    Thanks again.

    Just a couple more questions. Does Pirates of the Carribean (game) work on
    vista? And does Vista run games withou the use of disks? If not, how do I get
    games to run without the use of disks?

    Thanks.

    on a long line of programs including games?

  13. I found the updates when I ran Windows Update manually and when I got
    the list, double clicking on one to see the details.

    I don't do games so can't help you about your other question. I know
    that MS Streets & Trips gives the option of keeping the maps on the CD
    or transferring them to the hard drive but I don't know what games do
    -- I would think it would affect speed to much to run from a CD or DVD.

    Hey all,
    Dont even think that you are going to run COD United Offensive on VISTA
    ........NO way no how.....IT loads fine but when you go to multi player it
    crashes.Single player works,,,,but who wnats to play yourself!

    Just a thought (I HATE VISTA)

  17. Battlefront II has worked for me just fine but would love to get the regular
    battlefront working......One that really bugs me is actually one of my
    favorites of all time is Red Alert 2....I can load it and get it all ready to
    go but tells me that there is a fatal error when it goes to load and then
    NOTHING....What the hell was going through these guys minds when they
    released something with no backwards compatibility?!!!!!!

    That worked for me when I ran RA2 and Tiberian Sun.
    What sux is that there isn't a network protocol that works outside of
    joining Westwood Online.
