Harry Potter Quidditch World Cup CDROM Problems

  Giggle n' Bits 23:29 07 Jan 2004

hello all, I am trying to install the game from CD "Harry Potter Quidditch World Cup (Another Xmas Present that hasn't worked out of the box).

Disable the Virus software, turn of Screen saver and stick the disk in. But it starts to install then the screen turns a full screen of Pink, then to green then to blue, then to White with distortion if you try and stop the game using CTRL-ALT-DEL.

The audio if fine and can be heard ok in the back ground but the picture is a no no.

Running WinXP Home, DirectX 8.1 and DirectX9 still no good, Dedicated FX5200 AGP x8 card with drivers by Nvidia installed ok, erh and even tried on another machine running 98Se but you get a BSOD error.

Could this be down to using a older monitor, a fault with the AGP card ( other games are fine). Tried refresh rate change from 60Hz to 85Hz no difference.

Carn't really think of anything else apart from take the game back. Which i have done on a second occassion.
