    Default "Cannot Display This Video Mode" err - help!

    Hi,
    Just installed TOD, when I run I get a black screen and the above msg! I hear the soundtrack playing but no picture.

    I have a dell 4700 with geforce 6600GT PCI-E, 1.5Gb ram, 200 Gb HD, Pentium 4 3.2...many other games work such as half life 2 and fear.

    My nvidia drivers are the latest, direct x 9.0c...what else could be the problem?! Eidos said uninstall and reinstall, I did this, no other things I can think of...please help!

    Is there a way to set the screen size before starting the game?
    If so, try 800x600 with 16-bit colors.

    If you can't do that, try changing your desktop to 1024x768 with 32-bit colors. Are you using a widescreen?
