  1. Hi guyz .i'm hoping to get my problem sovled hear.
    ok.when i install "Need for speed underground 2 Demo" .and launch the game it gives me a "c0000005" error......

    So i thought it was just the demo being half broken.....so i got the full game.
    but it gives the exact same error...........

    so i formatted my pc.just to get a fresh start again......and i installed directX 9.0c , and it still gives the same error.

    my pc specs are:
    windows XP
    1000mhz
    64mb graphic card
    256mb ram

    any suggestions are welcome thnx
    Bruce. :rolleyes:

    Check the specs on the back of the game does your machine support them?

    CPU seems a little slow for that sort of game as it is does involve very high graphics!

    What graphics card is it? On Board?

    If its onboard it may be using system memory your 256mb, to run the graphics card.

    try updating you MB drivers the video drivers
    chk irq settings get the video away from sharing if you can
    some agp share the first pci slot if you have a nic in that it can cause irg sharing conflicts with games running
    also might try increasing your VM
    should be about 350MB

    Well theres your problem you just said it yourself!

    DDR RAM 256MB? SDRAM 128MB?

    I assume that the 256 was in it orignally?

    They can not work togeather you need to buy DDR ram to go with the 256 DDR RAM.

    YOu preferabbly need to buy the same make of ram you currently have in your machine.

    Or you could just buy a stick of 512mb DDR ram ?
