Hi Kszanz,

More specifically, what is your video display adapter that you upgraded the drivers for? You can find this by RIGHT clicking on the PC desktop background and selecting PROPERTIES, then clicking the SETTINGS tab. You should see the display in the center saying something like "Plug and Play monitor on NVIDIA GeForce FX 5700LE".

The suggestions about reducing the resolution may help also. But the description that you gave about the view of the telescope opening I have run into before and I think they were display adapter related. I did a search but couldn't find the topic on this site. If we can identify the display adapter we may be able to focus the problem better.

We're here to help!

I ran into the same problem with the telescope running windows ME. Updating video drivers, turning off screen saver and antivirus did the trick for me.

kszanz if your system still locks up after doing all that was suggested then you may have another program that is using the same memory address(s) used my M4. You will have to shut off everything that isn't needed to run the system.

I did everything recommended and then reinstalled the game. I then got the message about the drivers again. This time, I noticed Ubisoft wasn't there. Then it dawned on me that perhaps I was to download different drivers from most if not all of the locations listed. I then proceeded to do that. I don't have Intel, so I skipped that one. As far as I know, I got everything I needed because the game has been working. I got to the part where I got stuck before, and it worked fine that time.

The game did just shut down on me further on, but I went back in and have gone a long ways after that without any problems. The only thing that I've noticed when playing this game is a lot of static and popping noises. What could cause that? It doesn't seem to do it except when playing this game. It's rather irritating. Any suggestions?

Other than all of this, I absolutely love the game. I love all of the Myst games and want whoever created them to know they're fabulous!

Kszanz, I'm no expert on computer matters, but I would guess that these problems are directly connected to your video card. I remember when Uru came out that there were some video cards that it didn't like at all, and that may be why you're getting all the popping and static.

Is there any possibility that you could install Myst IV on another computer, just to see if things go more smoothly... think

When we went back another day, the noise didn't seem so bad. I think we may be okay for now.

Thanks so much for your suggests. I really appreciate them.
