    hi, i just bought NHL 2006 for my computer. i installed it right and everything, but when i click the game icon, it goes fullscreen then shows the desktop again with an error message saying that i should upgrade my video drivers. :eek:
    at this moment i am not on that computer so i cant copy exactly what the message said but, i know it said something about ''direct3d and my video drivers''. i checked the direct x diagnostics tool and everything seems to be updated perfectly. i have direct x 9c.

    i redownloaded the latest version of my video drivers(Intel 852GM/855GM/865G/910GL/910GML/915G/915GM/915GMS/945G) at
    http://downloadfinder.intel.com/scr...XP+Home+Edition&lang=eng&strOSs=45&submit=Go!

    but still no!!!
    i despratly want to play my game :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad:

    also i have another post in this website concerning my sound drivers but i somehow fixed it hoping that the same thing will happen here. :)

    I am not sure your integrated graphics are up to running this game. If your PC has an AGP slot I would suggest upgrading by buying a graphics card.

    Compaq Presario 7550?
    Are you sure that's the model of your PC and not your CRT monitor?

    Yes your are stick with a PCI graphics cards upgrade choice (not AGP or PCI-e).
    You can upgrade your processor to a Pentium4 from your celery (Northwood version).

    For the graphics card you might want to look at an FX5500 pci or a radeon 9000 series card.

    What do you mean, your video drivers are aparently 0 MB's????? :confused:

    Just a suggestion though, please don't take this the wrong way, you list your experience level as intermediate, you might change it to something else since you said that you are not very good at this ;) It helps us to know how basic to get, or NOT to get.
