    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?

    UniSol I'm all ears

    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
