Its Not working anymore


Recommended Posts

My Kotor game finally doesn't want to work. I have tried everything to help i think. At first a long time ago it didn't work when i first had it but it finally kicked and worked nice with great graphics and everything 2yrs later it just doesn't work and don't know what to do.

 

One problem is the openGL but i don't know what to do about that if it was working

 

Please help

 

thanks

Can you be a little more specific about the "not working" part?

 

Could the disc just be fubared?

I'm also a little mystified why your video card isn't even showing a card name, let alone "Video Memory=0" - even if it's on-board/integrated video, shouldn't it show something in those two details? ...

Sounds like a video card issue, given the limited info: the cut-scenes need more juice than the title sequence and menu. How did it "stop working"? Does any other game (or significant GPU draw) work?

 

Also, this shouldn't be here ... either Skeeter's or KotOR2.

well i also decided to install some other games of mine and they didn't work either so i finally decided to just come here. games like: battle front 2 which "was" also working perfectly, and Battlefield 1942 just randomly doesn't work either. Yeah its pretty random and weird that none of my games all the sudden don't work. But last time i tried those games was before we formated the computer now months later after the format i decided to install the games so maybe something possibly happened in that time period that making the game stop working. But what could possibly go wrong with a graphics card when time goes by.......

 

Also what is a GPU draw.

 

thanks

What could go wrong is the drivers for the GPU: the software component that manages the graphics capabilities and is updated frequently.

 

A corrupt driver would result in your system not being able to identify the video card.

 

What is the card? What drivers have you installed for it? (For example, you could update the installed Windows DirectX driver to version 9.0c, if your video card can handle version 9.)

 

(My comment should have read "orf significant GPU draw", meaning an application that draws a lot of "graphical complexity". :thumbsup: )

According to that, it's not detecting your video card. Reinstall its drivers?

The easiest option would be to find new drivers and installing them (which would effectively replace your current drivers).

 

If however you have the newest drivers, you can uninstall them via the windows control panel under "add/remove programs" - I would also recommend a driver cleaner program, since some drivers tend to have somthing against being deleted and needs some forceful encouragement.

Well it turns out that I have all the newest stuff cause my computer said i have everything so i was just wondering would it be best if I just formated my computer? I also cleaned the drivers and didn't do much

 

thanks

there's a difference between downloading and installing drivers. you need to actually rerun the executable to reinstall the drivers.

Could his card be overheating or come loose?
