I have a fairly modern computer, purchased from Tiny Computers, (Yuk), approximately two years ago running on Windows X/P Home.
Until I recently moved, I was able to play Formula 1 2001, (manufactured by EA Sports), with no problems at all.
Since moving and re-installing, this one game refuses to run. I get the following error message:-
[color:"red"] 'F1 2001 cannot be run on this computer. No Direct X 8 video adaptors found. Please contact your video card vendor for updated drivers.'
I am running Direct X version 9. I have done a diagnostic check in the Direct X file by running 'dxdiag' in run, and there are no problems located.
My chip type is KLE/PLE and it's serial number is VT8361/VT8601, (manufactured by VIA Technologies inc.)
I have placed a message on the VIA forum and have received one reply which seems rather drastic asking me to remove the mother-board, check the details, then go out and by another video card which would be compatible.
Seems odd to me that this game ran perfectly before the house move and computer re-installation.
Any SENSIBLE replies from you more experienced youngsters would be greatly appreciated, either by P.M. or E-Mail, or on here ! Me Grand-Son is distraught he can't play his favourite game when he calls, and I ain't tooo chuffed either !
