Computer help please!

Postby Devsar » Thu Sep 16, 2010 12:18 pm

Ok, I ran a full scan. Now when I try to log into EQ I am stuck in windowed mode. I have tried changing my computers resolution and im still stuck. Whenever I try to alt enter or go to full screen mode in game under options EQ locks up and I have to end task in the task manager. I have even uninstalled EQ and reinstalled it. Any advise? :evil:

What DirectX are you using?

Everquest requires that you install DirectX 9.0c separately. You still need to do this even if you have DirectX 10. Link to Microsoft installer.

if your problem is that the button never changes from "Updating" to "Play", then right click on your shortcut to Everquest, select Properties, Compatibility Tab, Set to run as Admin.

For Vista/Windows 7 users, To avoid problems with over-zealous security, it is best to install to a directory that isn't under "Program Files" - for example "C:Everquest". You should also set the properties of the Everquest short cut so that it runs as Administrator.

Installation:

How can I install Everquest?

How long does it take to download?

How much space does an installation of Everquest require?

Does Everquest run on Vista/Windows7?

I have installed Everquest, but it doesn't work. What now?

if you are making it in the game do an ALT-O think theirs is a button to switch modes on on of the tabs?
