    Hi Dan.
    It,so a Samsung series 300 with 6gb of ram,Intel Core i3,Intel 3000hd video integrated with 2gb of ram and the Nvidia dedicated with 1gb of ram.

    When I run the configuration it only shows the Intel video and when try to get it to use the Nvidia video it will not launch.

    Hope you help since the Nvidia card is 2x as fast as the Intel.
    Also F1 2012 demo works great with the Nvidia car.

    Hi mate,

    I'm going to get your post put into the Race 07 forum, where hopefully someone can help you there.

    Ensure you have the latest drivers, I would also try completely uninstalling the graphic card drivers, then re-downloading them and installing them again.

    Here is a guide to uninstall your graphics card drivers

    Driver files should always be uninstalled before updating to newer drivers or when removing an older NVIDIA card and replacing it with a newer card. To uninstall your current NVIDIA Display Drivers from your system, follow these steps:

    1) Go into your Control Panel
    2) Double-click the Add/Remove Programs icon
    3) Select the NVIDIA Windows Display Drivers from the list of programs.
    4) Click Change/Remove or Add/Remove button.
    5) Confirm with Windows that you wish to continue with the uninstall


    Here is a the nvidia website link to download the new driver files. - Click Me

    I have the Nvidia control panel set to check for latest drivers on a daily basis and inform me when a update is needed.

    Hi Mark, when I do that the game will not launch just stops running and no messages at all.
