"Please make sure you have directx 8.1 or higher installed also verify your video card meets the minimum requirment"

I searched for help on C&C's website,Vaio's website and vista website but i didn't find any solution. I try to make option.ini file also work with administrator's rights.I also tried to use compatiblty mode of vista with xp service pack 3 (and other version)but it didnt work

U downloaded DX 10.1? That card doesn't support 10.1. Sounds like you've been installing incorrect drivers which would explain the errors.

Go into Control panel/Programs Features, uninstall Nvidia Physx. Then go back to Control Panel and into Device Manager, right click ur video card/display adapter from the drop-down box and uninstall it. When windows asks if u want to uninstall the driver for that device, choose Yes. Restart your laptop. Go to www.nvidia.com and click on the Drivers tab. Search for your 8M series driver in the search tabs then download the latest driver and install it. Might be worth going to Microsoft.com and installing the latest version of DX9c which i think is the March release. See if that works. If all else fails, play Red Alert 2 instead coz its heaps better than slow-mo Generals :D
