Amnesia: The Dark Descent PC

fatal error?

By thunderman37 posted 14th Mar 2011

I just downloaded the game Amnesia and whenever I try to start it up I get a pop up that says: "FATAL ERROR: Renderer #0 could not be initialized! Make sure your graphic card drivers are up to date. Check log file for more information." What does this mean and how do I fix it? If any of this information helps, I'm using a Dell Inspiron 1545 laptop that's running Windows 7. Thanks in advance!

you graphics drivers might be to old...they get upgraded regularly. You need to download the latest drivers depending on what card it is. Ati or Nvidia.

Thanks! Do you know how I can find which one I have and how to download the new drivers?

go into control panel , system and security then system and device manager. Failing that right click on your desk top and it might tell you there.
