    Dear all

    I have just bought a new computer with Vista installed.

    WHen I launch the latest SC SD software, only half of the screen shows up on the screen. i remedied this by editing the properties of the shortcut to 'maximize'. This worked so I'm now able to download roms onto the cart. However, when I try to go into any options, half the screen is showing again and I'm unable to make any changes.

    This fault also occurs on programs that are basic trainers for games. Any ideas?

    strange... I have nor Vista nor the Supercard software, but you might try to run it in compatibly mode or something.

    go up to a higher resolution and make sure the graphics drivers for vista are installed


    i had this exact problem when my monitor broke and had to use a spare that could only manage 800x600 max... the bottom of the options screen was inaccesable, so you can't press the OK button

    Don't get Vista. That simple. :V

    But anyway, couldn't you just click and drag the menu bar thing over so it fits?

    Try increasing your monitor's resolution, that may help.

    If your buying a new pc, you haven't got that option. I've tried the latest supercard software on vista and it seems to be running fine.

    Worked for me too for the couple months I had Vista Ultimate. All I did was run in XP compatibility mode and run as admin.

    damn that sucks.. I guess I will have to keep that xp dual boot after all. it isn't that big of a deal though to keep xp about, just as long as it doesn't access MSIE.
