Unhappy Render Creation Error: ""?

I just bought Morrowind from Steam and when I try to start it up, it tells me "Render Creation Error: """, and then it quits out. What does this mean, and could someone help me fix it? I'm using Windows 7 64 bit. I have the latest DirectX and my graphics card is an AMD Radeon 6850. Thanks!

Are you running a 2-or-more monitor configuration?
Also try to run the game in a window, should work fine.

Full error: Render Creation Error: "Creation failed: Could not match desired fullscreen mode"

I have the same issue. I have a HPE-410y PC: ATI Radeon HD 5570 w/ AMD Phenom II 1045T processor.

I've updated the files to run in Win7 mode as well as defragmented cache files and verified integrity of game cache. I've updated all drivers recently due to issues w/ Batman and GTA IV installs. edit: I have one monitor and tried running w/in a window and fullscreen w/out success.

When I go into Options, at the Start Up screen, a drop down menu shows my videocard but has a blank drop down menu for resolution. Any ideas of a fix? BTW, I purchased Oblivion at the same time and have been able to play without any troubles as of yet (knock on wood).

I had the same problem. I was just running it in a resolution not fitting for my monitor. So I changed it and now it works fine.
