    Hello i have a big problem but first i want to give my laptop's specs:

    Intel Pentium M 740 (1.73GHz, 2MB L2 Cache, 533MHz FSB)(Sonoma)
    15.4'' WXGA (1280x800) LCD TFT
    512MB DDR2-533MHz
    Intel 915GM (max. 224MB)

    This laptop has a widescreen so I'm playing game at 1280x800 resolution. When i tried to make graphics medium or low it says it will happen when you restart the game. When i restarted the game nothing changes still 1024x768 and high graphics. This is the problem one how can i change them forever!

    And the biggest problem comes, when i'm playing game with 1280x800 and high graphic after a while (half an hour later) it crashes and screen look likes a color chaos and it locks my computer. Those 2 problems both happen at Civilization IV normal and Civ IV with extension Warlords. When i restarted i can start again and it crashes again. What can i do? How can i get rid of this problems? They made me crazy :rolleyes:

    Thanks in advance!

    Is your windows user name containing funny regional characters? If so, civ cannot update your ini file. Create a windows user without "scharfes S" or so.

    Pls report if this helps you.
