I finally got my copy of SPORE! Been waiting two years for this game… and I still can’t play it. The video card is a weak piece of crap and it’s taxed trying to handle the graphics (even though it’s a Radeon X300, which SPORE supports).
Trying to get updated drivers proved a hassle, and trying to restore the drivers I had before I started the mess proved a worse hassle. In trying to do that, somehow I told the computer to stop using the basic monitor profile, so now when I start it up I see the first couple of screens (warming up, finding master drive etc) but after that it’s just a blank screen.
How can I get the computer to start that profile again? I’m tearing what’s left of my hair out.
