Intel g41 express chipest not compatible


Sounds like your computer has an integrated video card and the game is looking for an extended graphics card. This type of card plugs into the motherboard via the AGP, PCI, or PCIE slots. Depending on the type of video card and computer, you may need to upgrade the power supply when you put the card in. If this is a laptop there is no good way to upgrade the video card.

Hope this was helpful

I dont have graphics card now so i cant play some big games


You won't be able to play bigs games, Usually with the games, it comes with a system min requirement and the min direct x version need to play those games. If you do not meet the min requirement, then you cannot play that game, and you will need not just to upgrade the video card but maybe mem, cpu and direct x to meet the min requirement.

Sometimes smaal rectangle shapes appears all over the screen while working, then we have to switchoff the system to reappear the screen


This a freezing of the system caused by the small memory (Ram memory ) or too many programs running in the same time for the capacity of the Ram ..or the CPU ..or just one faulty program or application ...Freezing the screen can be also a issue of running a program that requires video card resources much larger than available ..You should pay attention on the programs running often when the freezing is happening ..and than search on the internet for minimum requiring resources for running that application ..If the system permits you should upgrade..at least the Ram memory for to avoid this happening ..or use similar application with less needs from the system ..
Another cause can be the system being infected and in this case you should reinstall the operation system ..(this is probably the cause if your system has at least 1G of ram ..and 2G CPU ..cause in this case it is enough to run common application of any kind except complicated video ones..and the cause for freezing is a virus )

Not enough video memory


The Inspiron 4100 has a 16MB video card built in to the motherboard. It is not upgradable. It appears that the system doesn't meet the minimum requirements for the program, so you'll have to get a more powerful system to run that application. sorry =(

Cant get other video cards in a laptop?


He is correct all video cards are diff on each laptop.
try turning off all software in the startups except the ati programs

click start run / type msconfig
go to the startup tab and un-check everything except the ati software , click ok and restart, choose the don't show this again . and test the system now.

run the system while connected to ac as it will likely run faster than on battery power.

Upgrade card


Well, these are the minimum specs for Age of Conan:

OS: Windows Vista/XP
Processor: 3GHz Pentium IV
RAM: 1GB RAM
Video Card: Shader Model 2.0 and 128MB RAM: NVIDIA GeForce 5800 or ATI 9800

These are the specs of your computer (base):

  • Intel Pentium 4 550 (3.4GHz) Processor
  • 1GB PC2-4300 DDR2 Memory
  • Two 74GB WD SerialATA Hard Drives in RAID0 Drive Array
  • 16x DVD+/-R and 48x CD-RW Burner Optical Drives
  • Sound Blaster Audigy 2 ZS Audio
  • NVIDIA GeForce 6800 Graphics Card with 256MB
Seems to me that you are okay. Would a faster computer be better? Of course. But as you are, the game should play alright. Upgrading to an 8 series Nvidia is worth the change, though.

MOtherboard or Video card or Cables


I would go with the cheaper & say the video card. It wouldn't hurt to pull clean & reseat the card before buying another AGP.
