Question about Computers & Internet
Hello to the All Knowing!
I recently installed a NVidia GeForce 8600 GT graphics card into my system. The reason for doing this is to allow certain games to be played. It was recommended to me by a computer store specialist.
Now my problem is thea even though it is installed I cannot play any of the games that were previously installed or the one game in particular Warhammer: Age of Reckoning. I have checked all my system details from the following link http://www.systemrequirementslab.com/referrer/srtest and it says yes you can run it. However nothing happens when I click on any of my game icons, even the ones that did work with my old card.
Please help as I'm pulling my hair out!!!
Right off hand, I cannot answer this. Check into the video card trouble shooting, by going into the software that came with the card. I would also go into specific forums for your games to see it any one else is having issues. I have a two year old NVidia based card that will not play some of my late 90s' games because of software issues. I had to download patches, and run system commands to get them to work. NVidia in particular has a pretty good following and help is out there.
