I am also having a problem running Civ 4 and Oblivion, the only 2 games I have tried to install on this new system so far.

I think it is something about trying to check the Cd's that is causing it. I have about 5 Windows screens that pop up before I can tell the game yes check the Cd. And then it crashes.

I am too disgusted right now to try anything fancy.
It is promising to know that these games have been working for others.

You will not play Oblivion with an integrated X3100 GPU, based on the G33 chipset - even at the lowest settings and details there will be hitching.

Thanks

That checks out.

I should have specced a video upgrade for about $35 and maybe I would also have been able to dual screen.

I don't game much anyways so it is not a big deal but I was trying to figure it out for a while today why it wouldn't work and that was frustrating.

Missing the Vid Card option is also sort of sad.

This is why I will always build a PC - very easy and customisable.

I need help too

I'm not sure where I should post this, but I'm still having problems with Oblivion as well as most other games I have.

I installed Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit the day before yesterday after having Vista Home Premium (I think it was premium. It came with the laptop anyway).

I used to play Oblivion on that computer a lot. In fact, I had been playing it right before I decided to go ahead and upgrade to Windows 7. So after the upgrade, everything was gone. The computer was clean (Don't worry I backed everything up ).

I installed Oblivion after getting Windows Security Essentials. Now, before, on Vista, Oblivion played only on Very Low settings. It did't lag too much, and I was fine with the graphics. It's still a pretty awesome game on Very Low. I thought that the upgrade to Windows 7 would bring it up to maybe Low, but when I told Oblivion to configure itself automatically, it chose Medium.

I was pretty happy, but then, it crashed right when the window appeared. I tried a couple other games like Jade Empire, and Caesar IV. They crashed before starting too. However, Seven Kingdoms II worked fine.

I heard about the Directx 11 that comes with Windows 7 and how it's not usually compatible with certain graphics cards and was wondering if there is a fix for it. For the past two days, I've been trying to find this because I was sure other people had had this problem before, but I didn't really find anything definitive or what worked.

If anyone would help I'd really appreciate it.
Some Facts:
I've run:
DXSDK_Mar09
dxwebsetup.exe from the microsoft website
15.49_nforce_winvista_win7_64bit_international_whql.exe => the driver that I got from nVidia website for nForce windows 7 64 bit

My computer's specs:

HP Pavilion dv6000 =>It's three years old. But, I played Empire: Total War, Medieval: Total War, Europa Universalis III and Oblivion on it with no problems. So I know this computer is capable.

Processor is a AMD Turion 64 x2 Mobile Technology
nVidia nForce [something] I can't remember. Windows 7 just calls it "Standard VGA Graphics Adapter". But that's not what Vista called it. I was pretty sure I had a graphics card.

2GB Ram

Sorry about the long post. I just don't know what to do.

Happy St. Patrick's Day
