Hi,

umm, certain things never run on certain computers.
But.. try setting compatability to win 2000 by right clicking the shortcut for the game and going to properties>compatability.
Sometimes this fixes these annoyances

Taking into account that the game is nearly 3 years old - I think maybe your PC is too UBER! to run the game, you could try different compatability settings (they wont mess up your pc, mess about at willl) if you can't solve it through this, i would e-mail the game developers for advice (thats what you pay for remember!)

thanks.

Well since it looks like you have an Integrated Graphics card, so the graphics chip may not support something that the game needs. I'll do some research and get back to you.

-Doesn't look like your graphics chip supports it, Warhammer 40k: Fire Warrior needs a card/chip with Hardware T L support. Although I'm not sure what that is, it doesn't look like it's supported.

-Your chip specs: http://www.intel.com...b/CS-009078.htm

-Game specs: http://pc.ign.com/ob...496/496390.html (on the right side)

You can check the Intel site to see if the latest graphics controller release is more recent than the installed version
