    I have to look at the pointer for 5 minutes until the menu starts to load. That's because my system is 30 years old. Your system also isn't the fastest. Just start the game and wait for about 15 minutes.

    You also should disable everything in the background (including Explorer.exe).

    Did you have a problem installing a file called directx9.0c if so uninstall the whole game and then re insert the disk go to drive that the disk is inserted in right click explore right click on the NFSmw.exe and got to properties and run it as a a window 98 program. Don't know why this works but it does then reinstall the game. Also if you have anitblaxx or alchohol or dameon tools installed you will also get the no disk in drive error.

    If you're not using the original you may want to try something called sd4hide.exe

    I takes about 10 mins. to start and show the menu.
    When i select start career or and of the quick races then it keeps on ooading and loading.
    Since it was doing this i just kept it like that and when i returned it had closed.
    I swear i feel like KILLING all the creators and **** of the game ug2 worked superb on my pc and this bloody piece of **** why doesnt someone KILL me or my pc

    PC133? That could be a problem...... But the rest of your specs seem to be ok, though you might wanna aim for at least a 2 ghz processor, 1.7 aint that much anymore......

    I have an XP 2000+ also, sittin here on the floor as a matter of fact on its MSI mobo. XP's are good processors, mine OCed pretty good i thought. But i could only push it as far as the mobo would let me, which was only from 1.6 to 1.934.

    its probably not the processor, its the memory

    That PC133 memory is killing you! If you can.... get something with DDR ram and a faster processor, an athlon 64 isn't that expensive these days...

    But hey all these people having problems with this game... it makes me wonder if I'm gonna have problems to make it run when it's in my hands...

    Of freaking course it is the ram. He probably only has 128 available when trying to play the game. I don't know why you people would even consider the CPU when he has only 256 MBs of ram.
