Cannot Play Rise Of Nations - Error - Graphics Services Failed To Initialize

I installed rise of nations on my toshiba nb205-n230 netbook. It has the standard hardware except its os is now windows seven home premium(64). 1. 66ghz atom n280, 1gb 533 mhz ddr2, 320gb sata2 , intel 945 graphics chipset. These specs can should be able to play this game. I load the video with sound that works fine but when i get to the game load screen with game options it goes black, then goes to my desktop closing ron but comes up with this error message "graphics services failed to initialize. Please make sure that your video card and drivers are correctly installed, and are compatible with rise of nations".

Any help would be great as i love this game and its a great way to pass time in boring lectures. I usually use my asus gaming laptop but thats far to heavy to carry around.

Error - Could Not Initialize Graphics System

My problem is that aoe 2 wont work. I bought the collectors edition from eb for $10, installed all the ones on the disc (aoe (1), aoe (1) expansion and aoe 2 aok and aoe 2 aoc expansion) and the install worked everything was good until i tried playing the game it said exactly this: could not initialize graphics system. Make sure that your video card and driver are compatible with directdraw. Now im pretty sure they are compatible, as i am running vista (so it should be compatible? Right?).

Geforce 8300 Gs Graphics Card Failed On Dell Inspiron 530

I have a dell inspirion 530 with windows 7 ultimate installed. Recently the original graphics card failed (128 mb geforce 8300gs). As mentioned in that post i did cobble together an old fan onto that old graphics card which worked for quite a while. I also purchased a 512 mb ddr3 geforce 8400gs as a replacement had that ready if needed. My cobbled card finally went south again so i shut down and carefully installed that card (the new nvidea 512 mb geforce 8400 gs).

The first "post install" start-up showed the normal "starting windows" logo: the floating balls coming together as the pulsing windows logo - all in the normal high resolution. Then it all switched into low resolution and finally opened windows "as if in safe mode", appearing to be using only the standard vga graphics adaptor.

I opened the installation cd that came with the graphics card and read the installation manual. I then clicked autorun and installed everything that came up. Opted for the "clean install" and though everything took quite a long time, the installation appeared to proceed normally. I was then asked to restart to complete the installation, agreed, windows shut down and began to restart.

Everything on that boot-up appeared normal at first, i saw the dell logo, heard the first post "beep", boot screen showed "starting windows in 5 seconds, counted down, screen went black for a second (also as usual), then it started with dell logo again. This endless loop is all that happens; f8 has no effect at all so i can't even boot into safe mode now.

Interactive Services Detection Error

On bootup this morning i have been bombarded by a 'interactive services detection' dialog box - i've never heard of the program and am unsure what to do with it. Closing out the dialog box will make it disappear for roughly 10 or so mins, on which it will then return. I had a bluetooth detection warning or error this morning as well(i didn't see what it said before it went away).
 
I'm running win7 x64  on an alienware laptop - i ran mcaffee as well as some other security programs  and nothing popped up with an security issues - so i'm guessing that this is actually a windows program(although i have not heard of it). I went through google and a few of microsoft's sites and have yet to find any information regarding what the parent program is, what it does, how to disable it, etc.
 
I bought this laptop new, around 6 months ago and this is the first time i've ever encountered this particular error/dialog box - i did not install, download, or change any programs recently(within the past week, minimum). So i'm a little stumped as to why this is coming up now - with no changes to my system. So if anyone could provide some help/literature  on what this program, it's parent program, and anything connected to it does, is, etc and if this program is in actuality a virus or just a program, and to what i should do with it(delete, repair, etc) would be greatly appreciated.
 
>Win 7 x64
>Alienware laptop
>Most if not all drivers, updates, etc downloaded and applied
>Wireless router, bluetooth printer/fax(not connected to this laptop)

Tcp Error - Unable To Play Games

Tcp errors. Currently my tcp ports on my computer do not work for any of my games when i ping the game specifically byond.com it shows a connection within 80 sec the fastest time. I run on windows xp iv tried port checking with multiple sites and all answer the same with port refused connection. I have went through multiple processes to fix the problem by going to internet provider and my router provider. I run on several different ports that i opened through port triggering with netgear and none of them work but the udp does.

I was wondering if anyone could have the answer on how to solve this problem with my tcp ports so i can go back to my game programing.

Ati Radeon Hd 3200 Graphics Graphics Problem

I just upgraded windows 7 (twice now) and i'm experiencing graphics problems. It is most prevalent in windows media player and mozilla firefox.

Here's some pictures:
http://i254. Photobucket.com/albums/hh81/plasmaxwisp/errors.png
http://i254. Photobucket.com/albums/hh81/plasmaxwisp/erros2.png

It seems like the colors just drop off. And i know that windows media player does not look like that! The only internet browser that isn't affected by this is chrome. I've experienced another slew of graphics problems including a really bright wallpaper, but that inexplicably went away. I'm pretty sure i've updated my graphics card drivers. I've tried to load games, and they work with no problems; the problem only exists in these programs (as far as i know).

Computer specs:
Hp artist edition (this may contribute to the problem?) Laptop, pavilion dv6
Amd turion x2 ultra duel-core processor
Acpi 64 bit system
Ati radeon hd 3200 graphics card
4 gigs o' ram
Any additional specs needed? Just ask.
