The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion Graphic and Error Problems

Hi,

I got two major problems with my The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion Game,
And they appear with and without any of the cracks/NO-CD patches.

I install the game without any problem, and when I start to run the game at the first time it try to check my graphic card so the game can adjust the game graphic into what I should have with my graphic card. But somehow it can’t find out what graphic card I use…

So I just start the game, I have tried to run on 600x400, 800x600, 1024x760, 1280x1024 and 1600x1400… But when I start the game, I get the menu where I should apply what name and such I want to have on my character. And then, when I’m about to adjust my characters appearance, then I see that my whole characters face is white, and all I can barley see of it is the eyes that are even more white…
So I simply just click ok, and give a damn in that appearance thing…
But it’s the same problem in the game, it’s all white! All I can see is a white screen, and maybe I can see some details around me that are even more white, and maybe some black stripes, but it’s terrible and impossible to play with that graphic!

So I thought it might help if I turn the graphic settings down a bit,
So I go into the options  video settings screen, and I actually put all the graphic settings to the lowest,
But everything I click on return from the video options screen, the game just close itself and I get a Microsoft error messenger, and it asks me if I want to send an error messenger to Microsoft about this problem and blah, blah, blah…
I have tried several times now; I can successfully change sound options and everything without the graphic settings. I have tried to reinstall the game, restart my computer, tried with and without all the cracks/NO-CD patches on gamecopyworld.com, but nothing seems to work! So the game graphic remains unplayable!

So what causes this failure in the graphic? And why can’t I change the video options without getting this Microsoft error?

I got a fully updated U.S Windows XP Service Pack 2, and fully updated all components…
All from my CREATIVE Sound Blaster Audigy 2 ZS too my MSI GeForce 4 Ti4800SE 128MB AGP 8x graphic card…

In that case it's the publisher that you need to speak to or use the official forums for the game: http://www.elderscrolls.com/forums

Also, if you read the Readme you would see that your MSI GeForce 4 Ti4800SE 128MB AGP 8x graphic card is NOT SUPPORTED by the game:

ATI X1900 series
ATI X1800 series
ATI X1600 series
ATI X1300 series
ATI X850 series
ATI x800 series

ATI x600 series
ATI Radeon 9800 series

ATI Radeon 9500 series
NVIDIA Geforce 7800 series

So that's your problem, your MSI GeForce 4 Ti4800SE 128MB AGP 8x graphic card needs replacing!

@RamGuy
Look at THIS thread or google for "oldoblivion"; but to really enjoy the game a good DX9 card with shader model min. 2.0 is highly recommended
