    Default Can anyone help me? Im desperate!!

    Hey, I have just bought a new laptop and installed Football Manager 2008 on it. It worked prefectly until today, when I tried to run Football Manager 2008, and during the startup, it said 'Unable to open fullscreen mode'. The game then shut down. I have tried to uninstall and reinstall, as well as restarting the computer.

    As well as this, I installed Football Manager 2009 with Steam, however, when I ask the computer to launch Football Manager 2009, nothign happens. I then try again, and it says that 'Football Manager is already running'. This is just plain confusing, and pparently it has nothing to do with the laptop.

    Someone please help!!!

    Is it a netbook? I went through trial and tribulation to get FM09 working on mine, but it's perfect now.

    With 09- perhaps it's running as a process but not an app, normally caused by a virus?

    Ctrl+Alt+Delete, that will open Task Manager. Flick to "Processes". Is "FM.exe" or similar, running?

    08- has your resolution changed?

    09- Yes it is running, but even when I tell it to end that process, and try to load fm09 up again, nothing happens

    08- I ddon't think I have changed anything since it was working, it just happened overngith but I dunno why

    I have accidentally changed my resolution in the past

    Control Panel->Appearance and Themes->Change the screen resolution. I believe it needs to be set to 1280 by 1024 (should be the far right option).

    As for your 09 problem, I suggest doing a thorough virus scan, preferably with Kaspersky (my tech guy says it's the best).

    Oh, and have you read the FAQ? That could have the answer.

    08- For some reason I cant change my resolution, but it is set at the lowest so all i need to do is find out how to correct that
