Hi gang and a happy new year to all.
Anyway down to my latest problem,i've just installed my Chrissy prezzie ie. Microsoft links 2003,however on starting the game i get a message saying "3d acceleration is disabled,links cannot detect a 3d device update software for video card or instal new video card". On the options page i've selected my graphics card(a matrox g400 dual head with 32mb sgram ramdac 300mhz) and directx8.1 i've also updated the driver for this card,can any of you kind ppl shed any light on this problem or is the trusty ol'Matrox not up to the task? I await any suggestions, cheers in advance .....Denz

use an athlon 600 256 ram, win98se and have not been able to run any links game. could run links 98 on old p166 win 95 but same game would not run on win98se. even contacted msoft and they couldn't answer. kept getting message about graphics card. worked on voodoo2 but not on tnt2 64 pro ultra.

After much searching on the web and the microsoft data base it appears that my Matrox g400 dual head 32Mb graphics card is not up to the minimum spec to run Microsoft links 2003,now where do i stand? i've just purchased a product for £34.00 which does,nt work on my pc,i checked all the spec requirements on the box before purchase and it stipulates a 16mb 3d card well within my pc's capabilities,do you think i could demand a refund?
I bought the game from pc world,any idea what is their stance as regards opened products,any feedback would be most welcome.cheers in advance............
