    Update video drivers, update directX.

    Nop it found no problems, also I tried to download my graphics card drivers but the install failed, why's that?

    Okay I downloaded drivers for my graphics card but it still wont allow me to change to 16 bit colour.

    Did the video driver go threw its install, ie automatic one (next, next then ok)?
    Did it force you to reboot? (this should happen)
    Or did you do it a different way?
    Are you administor, Full rights on this machine?

    Yep it installed I restarted, yes im the administrator. Now I got it to go to 16 bit colour but I still get the same error when I try and run the game?

    Maybe download newest DirectX?
    before you had problems changing setting and installion of driver, how you fix that (what was wrong)?

    Have you tried running the exe in compatibility mode?

    Have tried running in all forms of compatibility mode still gives the error, downloaded the newest version for xp about 15 mins ago and restarted computer. The graphics card is Ati Radeon x850 xt platinum II edition. Its an old graphics card but its still decent.
