Hello, Please am having a recent problem with lunching Mavis Beacon on my PC,i was able to use it before, but now on lunching the application it brings up a message"failed to initialize window. Please try running the game again.If that doesn't help, try changing the screen resolution and colour depth. if that fails, then your video card does not support this game". surprisingly, have changed the resolution and colour depth, reinstalled the OS in-case its corrupted and updated all my drivers but still cant have a good result. what can i do ?

Bacon for lunch? I'm having chicken.

If this is one of the Mavis Beacon tutorial programmes that go back to years gone past, then it should work if you are using older versions of Microsoft O/S.

Do you still have the box it originally came in, if so, what does it say about installing the software?.

You could try installing through 'Your Computer' in the programme section on the O/S, if you haven't already tried that?.

Got a wide screen monitor? See encore support.

Sorry missed CQ60 - It's a wide screen notebook.
