Guys I'm having a problem getting FFXI to play on my new Dell Inspiron 8600. The specs are as follows:
CPU = Intel(R) Pentium(R) M processor 1300MHz
CPU Speed = 1300 MHz
No. of CPUs = 1
OS = Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 1 Ver 5.01.2600
Version of DirectX = DirectX 9.0
Main Memory = Capacity: 511MB : Free Space: 269MB
Drive [C:\] = Local Disk Free Space: 11.20 GB (Capacity: 37.22 GB )
Graphics Card = NVIDIA GeForce FX Go5650
Type of Chip = Unknown Video Chip
Video Driver = nv4_disp.dll
Version = 188.8.131.5281
VRAM = 128.0MB
AvailableVidMem = 117.6MB
AvailableTextureMem = 172.0MB
Sound Card = SigmaTel Audio
Sound Driver = STAC97.sys
Min Requirements for the game:
PII or faster
128 MB ram
Nvidia GeForce series with 32 MB or ATI Radeon 9000 series
DirectX 8.1 compatible sound card
6 GB free space
I have the game installed and can actually load the game. But within about 5 to 10 seconds of having the game open to play, it will completely close and exit out bringing me back to the desktop.
I've installed the latest vid drivers from Dell and even tried Nvidias website...but their drivers on the site state that they are not supported for mobile vid cards.
I also thought that maybe since I was playing on a compact keyboard it was conflicting with the configurations with the game. So I plugged in a USB keyboard and I was actually able to play the game for about 5 minutes or so. Then it started to do close the game out automatically again.
Can anyone know what my problem is? Help!
