Hi Vett,

Could be many things, maybe try some different GPU drivers, is the game online?

Ok, can I make a suggestion, this is just to rule out the 9400gt going bad, can you try the game using the onboard graphics of your CPU? I believe it has HD 2000.

I don't think the 9400gt is bad as it works fine with other games that are more complex, as for the onboard I don't see it anywhere

Maybe try reinstalling the game then? Does the game have support for Windows 7? It's pretty old right?

Is this it - ZanZarah: The Hidden Portal - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia ? Looks like it's 11 years old.
