    For some reason my Football Manager 2008 just will not load. I've uninstalled it and reinstalled it twice but it still won't load.

    I've attached the image that keeps coming up!

    Hope someone can help!

    Thanks

    Shouldn't really matter if you're able to install it. Likely to be a graphics card/driver issue. Download the latest driver for your graphics card, change to a lower resolution, I take it that you get some sort of blank screen then the program shuts down/freezes?

    And also try restarting you PC as well...
    Btw did you do anything with hardware/software since the last time the game was working?

    Disc is fine, I'm able to install the game so I'm guessing its ok.

    Cheers will give it a go. I don't even get a blank screen that message pops up and thats it.

    Again cheers will give it a try. I don't think I did anything with the hardware/software but my computer was running pretty slow so I did go on a bit of a spree deleting old files etc but I'm pretty sure I didn't go into the Sports Interactive folder.

    I'm 19 and on a gap year, so no exams to concentrate on.

    I used to always have issues with pc games, most went back to incompatible graphics cards, or old drivers. Much prefer my xbox now though... it's completely fool proof, no faffing about.
