thanks for your help:)

 

The game has special protection if you are using a pirated copy of the game. If you bought the game and you're still getting a no cd error, I'd advise you to try a no-cd crack. PM me for the website.

The motherboard is hardware, not software. It is the main big printed circuit board inside your computer. But if you are a gamer, I assume your computer has a separate video card and isn't using the (God forbid) integrated video built in to some motherboards. If so, go the videocard maker's website for the latest drivers. Most videocards use chips from nvidia or ATI. If your card has chips from one of those manufacturers, go to the appropriate website (i.e. http://www.nvidia.com or http://www.ati.com) and they will have the latest driver.

 

Now please don't say "How do I find out what videocard I have?". Right click the desktop, Properties, Settings, Advanced, Adapter, it will tell you there.
