    Is there any way to run spore on an ATI 2100 graphics card? I installed the game but when I try to run it nothing happens. There is no shortcut on the desktop and I have 3 gigs of ram. I am currently running vista.

    Umm... sound like this isn't a problem with your GFX card.
    If your graphics card was too low powered the game would still run, just really badly.
    What do you mean when you "try to run it"? How can you try to run it without the desktop shortcut? You don't need the disc in the drive to play it if that's what you mean.

    Well, I put the disc in go to my comuputer and double click it. I also tried autorun and exploring the disc and finding .exe but to no avail.

    look for a folder called 'sporebin' or 'bin' in the directory you installed the game, run it from that.

    Yeah, I've heard of other people having the same issue with this game, you'll have to find the program and make a shortcut for it yourself.
