Unable to initialise Direct Draw

  Nauta1 16:18 12 Apr 2003

When I originally installed SimCity 4 on my PC the game ran OK. Since my PC crashed last month the game will not start. The panel "Unable to initialise Direct Draw" appears. The Direct Draw tests check out OK, as do all the other checks, DirectX, etc. I have tried uninstalling and re-installing the game but to no avail.

Try reinstalling or even updating your video card drivers, I had the same problem a while back and reinstalling the video drivers worked, they may have become corrupted
