aaaahhhhhhh, help, what have I done? I think I might of done something stupid. You know when you get bored and you start opening programs in your Windows directory just to see what happens . . . . . well i've done that.

Now when I start games with intro's, such as Delta Force & The Sims (havent tried any other games yet), I can't see the intro although I can hear the intro music. Although not seeing the intro to The Sim's isn't that important, with Delta Force it is because you need to navigate round it to select what type of mission, etc. When I run Delta Force it goes to a black screen, then puts it in a window (maximised), and then nothing although i can hear all the sounds (can't see the mouse pointer, if that helps).

Am I right in thinking its not Direct X which is the problem as I can play the game fine (The Sims) and I can hear the music. Just to be sure I upgraded to Direct X 8.1 from the Microsoft Site.

I'm running Windows 2000, Direct X 8.1, all the critical and recommeded updates from the Microsoft site, Pentium 2 450mhz, 256ram, SiS 5598/6326 display adapter, C-Media soundcard, er. . . . what else? . . . . my mum's maiden name is Healey er . . . . I'm 6 foot and I drive a white car.

Thanks for the help

i've tried updating my display drivers and no luck.

the intro's are interactive (delta force) so they can't be avi's as they aren't interactive (is that right?)
