Oblivion won't load
When ever I try to load Oblivion, a small black box appears in the upper left corner of the screen then about two seconds later it disappears and the error report box pops up. I can't even get into the game. I have the latest version of directX and my display adapters updated.
I have reinstalled it twice and it is still not working.

Changed my resolution several times and it is still happening. Also, when I tried this on my other computer, the exact same thing happened.

This computer is an MDG, has 512mb of ram. I took the 512 stick out of my other computer and put it in this one to see if it works and the same thing happens. I'am sure that it is my GFX card, (an Intel(R) ) I'm planning on buying a new one sometime this weekend.

Go to Start -> click Run, then type dxdiag

Look for the processor speed and RAM on the first page; the video card information is stored on the Display tab.

Post that info. when you have the chance.

My processor speed and ram are fine, however, the video chip type reads
Intel(R) 915GM/GMs, 910GML Express Chipset.

So, is that my problem?

Yep. You need a real video card to run Oblivion. That's an integrated chipset, and doesn't support most of the features of Oblivion. Welcome to TSG, by the way.

I figured as much. Thanks for the wlecome.

After doing some fruitless searching, I was wondering if you could offer your opinion on perhaps one of the cheapest sets needed to run it efficiently? (and, if possible, on a laptop?)
