I am sure there is. I know there is for warlords. Or you can just use a mini-image and daemon tools.

Daemon Tools. Ok, I have that now. Guess I'll try and figure it out.

Thanks.

Ok, what do you think this means?
Bad ISO? Bad pc? Operator error?

Bad graphics card.

What are you on? An MX integrated graphics card on a laptop?

Noper. A Gateway thats about 6-7 years old and an ISO CD that I don't know what to do with.

In your start menu, click "RUN"

Type "dxdiag" in the box.

In the window that pops up post the info listed under processor, memory, page file, DirectX version and also all the info in the device box of the display tab.

Well, since you didn't manage to post any of the info I asked for, I would have to agree.

You will never play Civ4 on that.

The problem is you are using a 1GHz machine with a graphics card that is not only integrated into your motherboard but is about 1/4th the power of the lowest end cards that are out now.

Plus it only has 32 Megs of ram.

You need a new graphics card, and, frankly, a new motherboard, new chip, and some new (and more) ram.

Okey dokey. I suspected a new pc was the answer. Thanks.
