    I have been having a hell of a time getting games to play on XP pro.

    The latest 2 are Motocross Madness 2 and Tomb last revelation.

    Both install fine, and go through the initial game loads and menus.

    However, once I try to start a game it just exits out to the desktop, No error messages, nothing. They just quit to desktop.

    I'm running a geforce2 gts with 32mb and nvidia 23.11 drivers on a PIII 800 with 384mb.

    These games should run no probelm, but keep quiting.

    Any ideas why?

    have you tried a previous version of drivers?

    Assume you do have directx 8.1 right?

    What you need to do is goto the game .EXE and goto properties and run in compatablility mode - this will let you run slighty old games more easily :D
