    Hi, I am experiencing problems with Dungeon Keeper on my WinXP Computer.

    When I click KDDisk1, Nothing happens. So I right-click, then click 'Explore'. I then click 'Setup.exe'. Nothing happens. So I tried the Dos installation. The dos installation works fine, but doesn't have my Sound card listed.

    What should I do?

    Then, I decided to see if I could start setup.exe. So, I right-clicked on setup.exe, and went to the 'Compatability' tab, Checked the box that said 'Run this program in compatability mode for Windows 95', Then checked all the other boxes. This time, it loads up, but displays a black screen for 2 secs, and switches back to desktop.

    I assume that I need a computer slow down program.

    Some comp specs:
    AMD Athlon 64 3000+ 3.0 GHz
    Realtek AC97 audio card.

    Try the DOS installation, and just select Soundblaster compatible card from the list (if it has that). Or, if AC97 is listed, that would be ideal, but I doubt it has that. I don't really know if that will do the trick, but it's worth a shot.

    Tried every sound card on there, they didn't work. The game works just fine, but no sound.
    Any ideas?
