Game only work in WinXP with Direct3d disabled (on Win98 it runs ok)

  1. My son used to play Motorace (on Win98).

    But when I migrate to WinXP it crashed.
    The game only works if Direct3d disabled.
    The problem is that the game lost quality without direct3d active.

    Does someone can help me?

    Have you tried running it in Win98 compatibility mode?

    Do you have updated video drivers for your video card under WinXP? What type of hardware are we working with here?

    Video Card

    I have just updated my Video card driver:
    "NVIDIA GeForce4 MX Integrated GPU" and when I run the game the screen becomes black and the game crashes!

    Remember:
    The Game works with Direct3d option of Directx 9.0b disabled! (See first message)

    Thanks for attention!
