Oh my god...I dont know what did i do...When i want to play again my Last Chaos US..This error pop out.

Cannot set display mode!
Last Chaos was unable to find display mode with hardware acceleration.Make sure u install proper driver for your videocard as recommender in documentation and set ur desktop to 16 bit (65536 colours).

I go to Settings and my desktop already set to 16 bit...How I can fix this prob? I heard people say reinstall my video card, but how? I am using laptop, XP...I never have this problem before...until one day i saw 1 post about Why laptop lag..So i follow the steps and i think i unclick some files in some programs..Not sure..Just someone can help me with it? I install Pirate King Online and still when i click Enter Game, Nothing happen..

My laptop suddenly lost the Display Adapter as i cant find it in the Device Manager. So i go to RUN>DXDIAG and check for my Display...What i get is under Device,

Name : ( blank )
Manufacture : n/a
Chip Type : n/a
DAC : n/a
Current Display Mode : 1024*768(16bit)(1Hz)
Monitor : ( blank )


I checked for my laptop..

Manufacturer : COMPAL
Model : modeal 0860
ChipSet : Intel - i855PM
CoreSpeed : 1395.5MHz

I bought this old laptop few years ago..Its COMPAQ...Maybe in 2002..or 2003.

Can anyone help me check normally which driver is for it?

Hello FishyKing,

What graphic card do you have?

To find this out please go > Start menu
> Run
> type dxdiag.exe
> Then click on the "Display" tab.

Please provide everything under the heading of "Device"

Jazza!

As you have been told before, we will not help you with ANY issues on that computer until such time as you get a legitimate copy of Windows.
