I have this older game that I am trying to install and it says that my drivers are not supported by the game. Is there anything I can do?

Just a note- I am in no ways a computer person so if something can be done- you will have to walk me through it :whistling:

Please post the game's system requirements as well as your system's current specifications. If you're not sure what these specs are, let us know and we'll help you.

Hello ememkey and welcome to G2G!

What are the specs of your PC?
If you don't know then please download and run SysSpec. Run the application > click on the system button > click edit > click copy to clipboard and then paste it with your reply.

Have you tried updating your drivers?

We can certainly help you do this, however, we will need your system specs, as ZEUS_GB instructed above. Once we know what kind of card you have, we'll be able to help you find suitable drivers for it.

The drivers can be downloaded from the Intel website.

Is this the game your trying to run? If so you might have problems running it using Windows XP.
