I have just installed an AGP 3D graphics card into my system as it use to run with on board graphics which were not 3D. Taking into account that my system is not big the processor being only 700Hz I have only put a small 3D card in and for some reason certain software ie, flight simulator 2000 even though it stating on the box 3D card required is not running and coming up with an error message runtime380. Should I have a larger card in say a Geforce 4 eg. If anyone can help please let me know.
the system I have is a intel celeron 700Hz processor a 20Gb hardrive 256Mb memory and the graphics card I have installed is a savage4-LT AGP adapter for some reason the software flight simulator 2000 keeps running a runtime error 380 then closing the program down do you think I would be better installing a larger graphics card
Is Flight Simulator 2000 compatible with Windows XP (check the game's packaging)? If it isn't, you may need to use the Compatibility Wizard (which is part of Windows XP) to emulate an earlier version of Windows. Another alternative could be a patch for Flight Simulator 2000 (that's how I got the game Unreal to work with Windows XP).
By the way, how old is this Savage graphics card you have? How much memory does it have? It may not be good enough to run the game properly.
Several possibilities, I know, but sometimes it's tricky to get PC games to run!
mac for all games/sims the bigger graphics card u can afford the better and the fsater the PC. I am running a geforce 256 32mb vdeo card on a pentium 3 700e cpu and CALL OF DUTY will not run, even though I match the spec. It seems u have to have a very recent pc to get things to work. Which is a pity. One way of getting us to upgrade.
Thanks to everyone for your help, have soughted the trouble and I am upgrading my whole system in the near future probably to 3Gb and probably one of the new fx graphics cards 256Mb I think that will do the trick. Anyway once again many thanks to you all.
