recently installed a computer game called "Wild Life! The Ultimate Animal Park Simulator. the installation was completed sucessfully but when i went to start the game nothing happened. received a message saying,"cannot open video device". the game runs on Direct X9 video and sound.that was installed,also. installed more memory thinking that might be the problem but still no sucess. tried uninstalling and reinstalling,still nothing.

Memory has nothing to do with it. The video card and or video card drivers are the fault..

You can try to update the video cards drivers and make shure that you have the latest direct X version and you can tell us what video card you have in your system. If its an integrated video card that is more than likely the cause and you would need to buy a new video card that goes into an expansion slot on the motherboard.

We would then need to know what kind of expansion slots you have. Do you have Pci express, Agp or do you just have regular pci expansion slots.


Listing your computers model number and manufacturer can also help us.

If its a custom computer and you dont know about your pc you would then have to download a program to tell us what your pc's specs are..

pcwizard 2006 in my signature is a good program that lists everything about your pc you will just have to look for them.
