The steps should be the same. Just right click on desktop and select screen resolution (or whatever it is in your language) and follow the rest of the instructions.

What is your language?

Re: Red Alert 2 video problems on windows 7
hi there

You can fix the problem by entering Intel HD Graphics control panel (via Windows Control Panel or right-clicking the desktop) and enter Power section. Choose "High performance" mode. Works like a charm!

Have a nice day!

Right click ra2.exe > properties > compatibility > tick run as administrator. If it still persists set compatibility for XP.

SAME PROBLEM! :(
I just got a new computer. From first decade CD I can't see menu to play game. Then I uninstall and download ra2 .0.0 on strike team and then I get "fatal string Error" Maybe I need to try on red blue and yellow CDS?

I just got an Intel IGP myself and was hoping to be able to reproduce the problem. But on the desktop it works fine.

Hi

I have this topic open but i don't understand how you create that loop of the monitor.

http://strike-team.net/forums/index.php/topic/173190-ra2-slow/

I appear not to have as many options on my drop down as you.

Help please!

Cheers
