Hello there,

I just bought a copy of TitanQuest and attempted to intall it on my computer. After the autrorun sequence started I recieved and error "Acces to the specified device,path, or file is denied" When I try to access the disk (DVD Version), all of the exe files give me a "This is not a valid Windows 32 operation" error. I can open the .txt files but have no access to any exe's.

I am currently running Win2k with an Athlon 850mhz cpu 768 mb ram with a Radeon 9000pro graphics card. I have two Toshiba optical drives( one is rom the other is a dvd burner) SD-R1002 and SD-R5272 which I have checked and both have the latest firmware updates.

I have the latest drivers for my graphics card as well as the latest version of Direct X.

I realize that this current machine is well below the bare minimum to run this game, but I cant even get it to load to check. This is the same machine that I played both Everquest and WOW on in the past (albeit at lower settings, but still very playable)

I did however install the game on my laptop (Acer 3003LCI) without any trouble and then when it came time to play the game, I ran into the error "Your graphics card does not support Pixel Shader 1.0) which I expected.

I did some research through the games message boards and read about problems with SecureRom. But I am not sure what that has to do with anything.

Would this be a hardware or software conflict???

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance

I have to laugh at win2k & an 800mhz CPU.

If you want to game, get at least a P4 2.0, I'm not too sure about AMD since I haven't used them, XP, and at least 1 gig of RAM.

There are tons of free demos and games you can download legally.

Also, try to upgrade to a 9600PRO 256 on card, I have it and it can max out halo, BF2 on some ok settings with 800x600, AVP2 maxed out, same with NOLF.

Of coarse, if you want to be good for a few years get the x800GTO from newegg for $130 ;) 

this is good also

yeah there is no way that game will run on your pc, you need to look at the recommended hardware requirements on the box. i have a evga 7900gt ko video card amd athlon 64 3500 and 2 gigs of ram and it stutters sometimes on my machine
