Castling is a special move using one rook and the king. Castling is the only time in chess in which you can move two pieces at once. There are two varieties of castling: kingside and queenside. Remember, in both (kingside and queenside castling): the king always moves two squares toward the rook with which it is castling, and then the Rook (switches) moves to the other side of the king. TIP: Top players castle early in nearly every game. It makes the king safer, and also gets the powerful rook out of the corner. You can only castle, if all of the following are true #1- Your king has not moved yet; #2- The rook you want to castle with has not moved. #3- There are no pieces between the rook and the king; #4- You are not being checked. (You can't castle out of check!); #5- The process of castling will not put or land the king in check. #6- The king and the rook must be on the same rank (to exclude castling with a promoted pawn).

you can search on www.hp.com. They should have an upgraded driver for the game. If not... you could google something about it and see.
Where can I get the old dos game Battle Chess? - Here's the catch - It needs to be XP compatible.?
If you played a game of chess with your child, would you be disappointed if your child won the game?
Well you need to make sure that the king and the tower are moving for the first time while switching. If you have already moved any of the 2 then the switch does not happen. This is called Castling. Move the camel and the horse that are between the two so that king can switch with the tower.
This question does not belong in board games. It is a computer question and has nothing to do with the game of chess. If you question is about chess games you have downloaded from Yahoo Games, it is possible software on your computer is outdated, or files on your computer have become corrupted. First remove the old software; it's stored in a windows folder called "downloads," "program downloads" or something similar (unless you put it in another folder when you downloaded the original program.) If you have played this chess game before, then you have the chess program somewhere on your hard drive. Find the program and remove it. If it's listed in control panel, add/remove programs, use that feature; if not, then delete the program manually. Next install your program back-up (you did make a back-up copy, didn't you?), or obtain a replacement copy if such a service is available from the seller. If you still cannot run the game, most likely you also need to update your version of Flash Player or Java. Both Adobe and Oracle constantly send reminders to upgrade these products for free, but people tend to ignore these until they have a problem. Navigate to the Adobe and/or Oracle download sites and follow their instructions carefully. Frequently you will need to uninstall the old version before you can download and install the newest version. Use Windows control panel, add/remove programs, to uninstall Flash and Java - do not attempt to do this manually (multiple hidden files.) If you're question is about the "new, improved Yahoo Chess," or the old "standard Yahoo Chess", these online games are server-side applications and there is nothing you can do from the client side. While waiting for Yahoo to fix their problem, why not do an internet search for other providers of online chess?
Yes it is called castling. You can castle king side or castle queen side. If you are white to castle king side 1) your bishop and knight on the right side of your king must not be in the way. 2) Your king and rook must not have previously moved. 3) Then simply move your king two space to the right, and the rook while swing around the king all by itself. Note there are some conditions: 1) You cannot castle while in Check (when another piece is threatening your king) 2) You cannot castle through Check (if an opponent's piece has influence over the necessary squares you need to castle) To castle queen side, move your king two spaces to the left and the rook will swing around. This time however the queen, knight, and bishop to the left must not be in the way. If you are black to castle king side move to the left two spaces, or to castle queen side move two spaces to the right. Once again the squares must be vacant, and no opponent's piece can have you in check. And once again the king and rook must not have previously moved.
The graphics "card" you have is integrated with the CPU, so you can add a graphics card and it won't effect anything. The graphics card will fit based on what it looks like inside the case, but you need another power supply for everything to work.
