Games won't play

  fazza8 13:29 22 May 2005

I bought a PC for my 10 year old daughter to use and I have bought some games for her like Them Park. It seemed to install OK but when I tried to run it the screen clicked off and it dumped me back onto the desktop. Is something missing from the computer? Her is a profile of it :

Theme Park is an older game, it may not be compatible with XP. Suggest you look on the game website and see if there is a patch.
