the game wont load, i start the game and the screen goes blank while it changes resolution, i get the loading screen only its in windows, but not in a window. i get the loading screen and the start menu. then the loading screen goes away and there is no main menu to the game or an error message. the resolution stays at its low resolution with windows and no game. i have had it working befor, but i quit playing it for a while and when i went to play it again it didnt work. i have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the game many times and it alwasy does the same thing. it does it with or without the game updates. i am running on a compaq pasario 2.4 ghz p4 ht, 512 mb ram, nvidia geforce 4 mx 440 64 mb video card, windows xp pro and everything is updated. plz help!! Thanks.

You could try a few things like:

Maybe you set your pc resolution to high, might work the first time and crash the second, normally i should work.

IMPORTANT!: Your resolution and statistics/useraccount are all saved in your: xdrive:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Mijn documenten\Command and Conquer Generals Zero Hour Data (winxp) *** Delete this folder *(save your maps in a differten folder) and reïnstall ZH. *** 1. Run a repair from the CD (but you probably allready done that) 2. Run the latest NVIDIA update 3. Run all windows updates 4. Install the latest patch 5. Uninstall all mods and non-cd cracks 6. Scan for virusses or security checks at: http://security.symantec.com/sscv6/default.asp?productid=symhome&langid=ie&venid=sym

if u are experiensing a problem when u double click the C&C generals icon, nothing happens for a while, and it pops up whith the message that have to check your directX version or your graficcard drivers, although all your other games work perfectly .......... THERE ARE 1 SOLUTION........... (1) install directX 9 one more time, even if you did it 20 times to figure out what was wrong with the game (2) go to my documents (3) go to the command and conquer generals folder (4) make sure that your folder settings are set to view hidden files and folders (5) finde the file named "options.ini" and DELETE IT.....NOW

your welcome.... now you can play the game....
