Well, first of all, I would like to not create a third account for this forum! I'm sticking to the Unreal Tournament 2004 forums... I'm not going back to the bastards at the Star Trek: Bridge Commander forums (don't ask)! Anyways, I believe your video card is causing the problem. Your computer: OS: Windows XP 5.1 (Build: 2600) CPU: GenuineIntel Unknown processor @ 2599 MHz with 511MB RAM Video: NO VIDEO Do the following steps, they may determine or solve your problem. Solution 1 1. Click START, then RUN 2. Type in "dxdiag" and press OK 3. Click the DISPLAY tab 4. Make sure all DirectX Features are enabled, including Direct Draw Acceleration, Direct3D Acceleration, and AGP Texture Acceleration* 5. Test Direct Draw and Direct3D 6. Look under the DEVICE section of the Display tab 7. Make sure information is available on ALL of the following: Name, Chip Type, DAC type, Approx. Total Memory, Current Display Mode, Monitor 8. If anything in step 7 is missing, you are missing drivers for your monitor (if it can't be identified), or missing drivers from your video card. You video card drivers may also be out of date. Check the manufacturer's main website (preferred), or download from www.nvidia.com if those Nazis haven't already referred you there. Solution 2 (skip this step if your video card is integrated to the motherboard) 1. Shut down your computer and remove the power plug 2. Open your computer (please comply with instructions from your owner's manual) 3. Remove any devices attached to the video card, including anything attached to the S-Video Out and the VGA output or the hard drive power cord 4. Remove your video card from the bus, and make sure it fits in properly into your AGP/PCI/PCI express bus 5. Cautiously attach your video card securly into the slot. Plug in any power cords necessary for the video card into the intended location. Assure your computer has enough watts of power for your specific video card 6. Reattach other wiring including, but not limited to, VGA output cables 7. Turn on the computer 8. Click START, then RUN 9. Type in "dxdiag" 10. Click the Display tab 11. Browse the "Device" section Solution 3
