Just trying to run a game......

Guest

Just bought a new Pentium 4 2.6 mhx . No connection to internet and only installing store bought games (so assuming no chance of viruses). Installed EA Sports F1 2002. Runs for about 10 seconds and freezes system. Must do a hard shutdown to restart computer. Receive following message:

The drver for the display device was unable to complete a drawing operation.
The display driver SiS 661FX_760_741_M661FX_M760_M741 seems to be responsible for the system instability
szAppName: Drivers.Display szAppVer: 103963300063301039
szModName: SiSGRV.dll ModVer: 6.14.10.3520 Offset: FA3206EA

And then goes on to say if I want to send the report to Microsoft but of course I'm not hooked into the internet on this machine (and don't want to be at this point)

I'm computer illiterate so any help would be appreciated........

You've got a fast CPU but a pretty basic video chip, and it's probably an
onboard chip, as well. A pretty lousy setup for playing games. I'd suggest
that you get a gaming-quality video card and install it, with updated
drivers. Before you run out and buy one, find out if you have an AGP slot or
if you're going to be stuck with PCI. Also, make sure you've got enough
memory.

You might find that buying the upgrades are more expensive that what it
would have cost to get a gaming-quality computer in the first place. If the
computer is very new, perhaps you can return it and get something more
suitable for your purposes.
