I kept getting the "Failed to set up graphics system." error. I tried this solution and it worked 5-6 times but now it doesn't. I delete the folder restart my laptop and I get the same message.

It's making me so angry! I haven't had it working properly for about 6 weeks. If it stays like this I definitely won't be buying 2011. :mad:

I used to get all the error warnings and my game always crashed often, then i downloaded adobe flash player and after this FM wouldnt load up at all even to the start screen.
So when i click on the FM icon the cursor loading thing works for about to seconds but then nothing, absolutely nothing. can't get to the load game screen (main) or anything. Will this here help with that do you think ?

Mate i had this problem you know. You need to download the latest graphics card for your computer, Usually free (it was for me)
Or if not the latest then you need a graphics card that will work for your game.

Ok, I got this problem, deleted the correct folder, and my game worked fine after that, except for this...

As you can see, you can't see loads of writing, and it just makes the game harder to play, especially when signing players, any solution?


EDIT: The screen isn't black when I'm playing games, usually. But you can't see the "Control, Attack, Overload" things, or the Touchline Shouts.

Try this path once you have made all folders visable

C:Users-your name-appdata-roaming-sportsinteractive-fm2010-settings

Sean, many thanks for the solution. However I have deleted the settings folder and the game loads fine now, but ' Load Last Game' is blacked out and when i try ' Load Game ' it says the saved game could not be loaded. I copy and pasted the saved game into my documents if that helps.

Any advide would we greatly appreciaed !
