Having problems with your Computer Games ?

Cannot run Professor Tim's Incredible Machines on my pc

\015 My pc is running Windows xp. The pc game was originally designed for Windows 95.\015\012I have tried ignoring the initial prompt to install which was unsuccessful and copying all the files into a backup folder on my C drive. I right-clicked the TIMWIN.exe in the back up version, chose Properties and set them for Windows 95 and 256 colours. I then went through the normal install process without running a system test which had caused problems before and ignored the notification of failed tests and it seemed to install ok. Then when I go to play I get a Windows error report.\015

Answers :

Try running the setup file and game in compatability mode for Windows 98. It should cure it. It is likely that the software does not recognise the hardware on your computer though, and if this is the case the software won't run at all.

AGP slot The specs on this machine don't mention an AGP slot. It has 3 PCI slots and 1 PCIe x 16 slot. I'm assuming the GeForce graphics card is in the PCIe slot. I need to run 3 monitors. I want to get a 256mb graphics card that will run 2 monitors and replace the existing card with a 256mb card. I can't find a 256mb card that fits into a regular PCI slot. Does this machine have an AGP slot? what is the best way to run 3 monitors? If someone can help me it would be really great


Your machine does not have an AGP slot if it has PCIe. And the onboard graphics cannot be enabled at the same time as the pcie slot, it will use one or the other.Assuming you need to run them all at the same time, Matrox is the only manufactur ...
