WinXP, Client crashes after logging on

Recommended Posts

Hey all :) ,

 

i had a few problems with my own laptop lately, so i borrowed one from a friend.

today i wanted to install EL here but i cant get it running.

this is an acer aspire 3003 WLMi using WinXp Home Edition, with the graphic card: SiS M760 GX.

ok i will try to explain how far i come ;)

i can install EL without any problems. i can chose a language and i can read the rules. then i can logg on and see piiia where i left her in the NC storage, but then the client crashes right away and i get this message:

Eternal-Lands Client hat ein Problem festgesstellt und muss beendet werden. sorry for the german but it means something like EL-client found a problem and has to be shut down.. (dont know the right englisch expression)

 

this is my error log:

Piiia grab the latest driver fof SiS M760GX, just go here:

 

http://www.sis.com/download/

 

select:

 

"Windows XP" -> "IGP Graphics Drivers" -> "SiS66x/SiS76x & SiS67x"

 

Then click "Go"

 

The first result (atm) is "R391_logo.zip", that's what you want.

 

Download that, extract it to a folder somewhere, and run Setup.exe.

Hmmm that's weird cause although under "Supported Products" on the site it doesn't actually say M760GX, the documentation with the driver (i downloaded it and had a look) said it did support it...

 

 

If none of the drivers there work Piiia, and the drivers off Acer's site don't, then most likely that IGP/GPU simply can't run EL :\

remember, there are TWO el.ini files...one in your profile folder, and the other one in your EL folder...edit both, then try again :)
