Whenever I try playing Trials 2 I get this (http://www.fileqube.com/file/XomEpHwOf202237) error http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon_mad.gif And if I switch the screen mode to windowed I get this (http://www.fileqube.com/file/IbKFcLP202239) error. It happens right after I click Start, it starts opening and then pops out the error.
I'm using Windows Vista 32 bit edition.
I have a 15.4 laptop widescreen.
Can someone please help me I really want to play.

Things that are likely going to help:

1. Right click on desktop background and select "Personalize"
2. Click on "Display Settings"
3. Check out the "Colors" selection. It should be "Highest 32 bit".
4. Here is a drop down list telling your display and graphics adapter manufacturer names. Remember the display adapter manufacturer name for later use.

Go to the website of your laptop manufacturer (http://www.hp.com, http://www.dell.com, http://www.asus.com, etc) and search for newest Vista graphics (display adapter) drivers. If you cannot find the newest drivers there, go to the website of your graphics adapter manufacturer (http://www.nvidia.com, http://www.ati.com or http://www.intel.com) and download the newest drivers there. Install the drivers and reboot your computer.

If the game does not work after there steps, please do the following:
1. Open windows start menu and type "dxdiag" on the "Start Search" field. Press enter.
2. DirectX diagnostic tool opens up.
3. Click on the "Save all information..." button and save the file to your desktop.
4. Open the file with notepad and copy all the text and paste it to this forum thread. I will check the info out to see what is the problem.

Thanks Sebbbi for your help and fast response, so I guess my display drivers were a little outdated.
