    I'll never get this game to work...

    Hi All,

    Same problem for me - the game is installed but when I attempt to play it, I get the dreaded black box in the corner of my screen and then Windows informs me there is a problem and Oblivion must close.

    I've already run defrag and scandisk; and msconfig to disable all...

    Here's my system specs... can anyone identify my problem? I don't know squat about computers. Thank you!

    Windows XP
    Dell Dimension DIM 4600
    Intell Pentium 4 CPU 2.66 GHz
    512 MB of RAM
    Direct X 9.0c
    Intel 82865G Graphics Controller

    Seems to be going around...

    We're having trouble starting up as well.

    When we start up Oblivion on my computer we get an error message.
    I clicked on the blue "click here" note and it shows this error.

    AppName: oblivion.exe AppVer: ModName: oblivion.exe
    ModVer: Offset: 00098749

    Ram and video meet the requirements.
    Running XP
    CD in player etc.

    Your integrated graphics are the problem. They will not allow you to run the game normally. Try using Oldblivion as suggested in post #21. It may work for you.

    i have the same problem it is not a problem with the computers stats it is that oblivion won't run with intel graphic cards.i know this because i called the tech support up for oblivion and they said that oblivion absolutely will not run with intel graphics cards no matter how good the card is so the problem is you need to get a different graphics card other then intel
