3D Hardware Problem

  fazza8 19:17 23 Jan 2005

My son has bought Jedi Knight : Academy and has tried to install it on an acer laptop running Xp Pro on which he has successfully played lots of games. It won't run even though installed properly. We keep getting an error message "There is no 3D hardware installed on your system. Please see the troubleshooting guide for a list of supported 3D video cards" We tried that but can't find much help. I installed it on standalone PC and got the same message. Any ideas?

Had same problem untill I loaded latest graphics acrd drivers.

You need to look on the Acer site and get the latest downloads for your laptop.

Thesame applies to your desktop machine.
