I successfully reformatted which I'm happy about. What now is the certain programss that I can't run now. I installed Empire Earth 1 and tried to play it but once it starts loading, it makes an error sound, and just stops loading. I installed DirectX8.0 directly from the Empire Earth CD. But..am I forgetting a certain driver or something?
