video problems when playing a game

By fpoof230 ·
I recently purchased SWAT3. I got it while at lunch and went back to the office and couldnt resist so I installed on my computer at work (shhhh!!) i was hooked, so on the train, i installed on my laptop. Everything was going great and was all settled in completely dedicate my whole night to playing this on my desktop at home, after i installed it was about to start a mission a message box poped up saying "can not start 3d movie mode" i hit ok and i'm sent back to my desktop. Also, I noticed that all my sounds are very very fast. I have tried over and over to try to fix this and dont have anywhere else to turn. I have a compaq deskpro running windows 2000. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thank You

for high graphic games you will require a graphic accellarator for running high quality games. But also check that you have installed the right VGA Driver and the resolution of the screen. If you check the game CD it should tell u what is the minimum requirement for playing that game. Depending on that info change the settings.

Downloading the most updated drivers for your video card would be a big step in the right direction of fixing this problem. I do know that many games that claim to be Win2k compatible do not run great on Win2k just because of the way that operatingsystem works. I agree with answer number one though, download the latest drivers for the video card you have for your desktop and see where that gets you.
