It looks like your card is below the minimum requirements for this game. You will need a faster (newer) card to run this game. It's not surprising, as many of these shooters have very high system requirements, and your 3-4 year old card probably wouldn't cut it even if it did work.
The good news is that a new card will run it faster and look better. Since your old card is PCIE 2.0 compatible, make sure that your new one is also 2.0 compatible. (Unless you know for sure that the mainboard supports PCIE 2.1) PCIE 2.0 cards will work on 2.1 mainboards, but the opposite is not true.
This sounds like your computer may be several years old and the hardware a little outdated. It will depend on the game since today's latest games require not only 3d-acceleration but super fast acceleration as given by "NVIDIA" or "ATI"'s latest graphic cards.
If you are running a relatively simple game, you need to see if your computer uses which type of graphic card connector.
In the old days it was PCI, then came AGP and later PCI Express.
What the above will tell you is which 3d graphic card type to buy. You can get a graphic card at newegg.com or lots of other places varying in speed and capacity.
Time for a video card upgrade. You are now two (almost 3) generations of video cards behind.If you are truly referring to a VooDoo card, you definitely need to upgrade to something newer. If the game you are trying to play says you must have a DirectX 9.0c compatible card, you will need to get a new video card. The good news is that just about any card you can buy new would be at least DirectX 9c compatible. The bad news is, I am guessing your card is PCI card. That being the case, you will be hard pressed to find a new one for sale.
If your mobo wasn't compatible with your video card, you wouldn't get a screen at all. Yes upgrade your directx to 10 and yes upgrade your power supply to a 650Watt or greater. The problem is most likely that you have a low wattage PSU and when your vcard request more power to run higher graphic games than the Windows Interface, your computer shuts down because it doesn't have enough power to give.
From the sound of the error message your video card (sometimes called a display adapter) is not directx 9.0 compatible. Unfortunately this can not be fixed with a simple free solution. The only way to solve this problem is to purchase a new video card.
Hi syaricky - First with your pc off, put your old card back in. Boot your pc and when Windows finds the card, just let it install whatever drivers it wants for the video card. It may ask you to choose the card or it may say it has found the most compatible driver for that card. That is ok. Then shut it down, and install your new card. When it boots and and says do you want it to install drivers say no. Then insert your cd and install. Once installed, go to your device manager and uninstall the old card. Start>right click my computer>properties>hardware>device manager>click on the + next to display adapters. Right click on your old video card and click on uninstall.
If this solves your problem PLEASE rate this as fixed.If not,DO NOT RATE YET. Let me know what happened. Just add a comment and I'll be happy to assist you further. Thanks. Let me know what happens.
