Hi

I have a relative who got a new Dell Dimension 2400 yesterday and I was installing some stuff on it for them today. Anyway to test the graphics I tried out Fifa 2002 and assumed it would work since it works on my machine which is older, weaker and has a Intel 810 graphics controller as opposed to the 845GV or something like that or this new one. When the match is about to start the machine simply cuts from the game to the desktop and closes the program. Any ideas why it runs on my machine and not this new one-I don't have a video card on mine.

Specs of the two machines

Dell................................Compaq (mine)
Celeron 2.3...........................Celeron 700mhz
256 RAM...................................128 RAM
Windows XP Home.........................Windows ME
845GV Graphics Controller....................810

So how can it run fine on mine and not on this one?

You don't get a message about missing indeo codecs?

Have a look at this Game Stops Responding (Hangs) or Quits Unexpectedly When Introductory Video Clip Is Played (http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=327979) and download the recommended update.
