I'm at my father-in-laws trying to install Scrabble 2003. It would appear that it does install ok, but when the credit scenes are loading with the logo's etc. I then hear a click inside the monitor and it completely finishes reverting back to the desktop! I have downloaded a 2 MB patch for this game from Ubisoft, but seems to be of no help on this issue. He has an XP home machine, 128 MB Ram. Emachines 130 is the PC concerned.
Also, I see on the back of the package for the game it says: not compatible with: Intel i810 and i815 video cards. Under the device managers System devices it says "Intel 82810 Systems & Graphics Controllers" 82810 seems rather similar to the i810 as above.....Is this the basis of my problem then I wonder?
Hope you can help soon as I am due to leave here in an hour or so to drive back to the Midlands.
The only thing can say is that had the same problem with The Sims Deluxe Edition. It installed o.k. but when trying to access it went back to the desktop. I took it back to the shop and exchanged it and it worked perfecly. Dont forget to uninstall your present game if you do this. Maybe the shop can advise you on your card????
