How can i Run "Splinter Cell Chaos Theory" with Shader Model 1.3 ?


Unfortunately, you can't. The SiS M760GX is not a suited graphics cards for that game / 'hardcore' 3D gaming. It's way too slow to get decent performance to start with (no cure for that except upgrading) and secondly the driver software is not fully compatible, it simply doesn't implement all the required features properly, nor is or will it be updated to do so by SiS. (Even) older games might still work properly, but the newer/more sophisticated games won't.

For 3D gaming an ATI/AMD or NVidia graphics card is strongly recommended. Their drivers are way better, they hold the majority of the market and hence most games will work flawlessly on them. Performance still depends on the graphics card chosen and on the speed of the rest of your system (CPU speed, amount of RAM, etc.).

Since the M760GX is a mobile videocard, you probably have a laptop; and most (especially older) laptops can't have their videocard 'upgraded'. And in case you can, it's mostly way too (difficult and) expensive to buy one, even second-handed. You'll end up spending around $100-200 and even when it works, you'll probably hardly notice any real improvement. Besides the chance that the better performing cards run too hot during gaming, as your laptop wasn't designed to handle the more powerful card in the first place.

PS: Some of the latest laptops have (relatively) good 2D performing videocards by Intel (HD4x00 and newer), but these are still not aimed at/optimized for 3D gaming. They might be able to run the older games (like the game you mention) decently though ...

How to solve my 3D graphic since my RAM was 4G... sometimes my laptop lag when i playing latest games... should i buy a graphic card for it or any suggestion how to boost my 3D perfomance...


For most laptops, you cannot replace/upgrade the graphics adapter ("video card").

Nor can you replace/upgrade the CPU.

How much RAM in your laptop?
Buy more, to "maximize" the amount of RAM that your motherboard will support.

My 3d acceleration does not work, so i could not play my games.. where could i get video driver that are compatible to my motherboard.??


You need to find out if your Motherboard has a AGP or PCI express card slot. Most of the newer video cards use the PCI express slot, so if you have that, you will have more options for upgrading.
You should also check how much physical space you have in your CPU for the video card. It would **** to come home with your new video card and realize it doesn't fit in your CPU.
You also want to know how much power your computer's power box can supply. Some of the more power hungry video cards may require auxiliary power, you should make sure you can accommodate that.
When you look for a video card, you should have the following information on hand:
  • Motherboard Specs (PCI, AGP or PCI Express Card Slot)
  • Physical Space Available
  • Power Box Information (Wattage, Brand, Model)

Will a newer monitor work with my older 2.4ghz cpu


Upgrading a monitor does not require uparading the RAM or the video card on your computer unless you want to run graphic intensive video games.

Your card or driver does not support directx9.0c 3D acceleration


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.

Choppy play with high quality video


A replacemnet video card would help some, but you still have the problem of the 440 mhz processor.

There is not a lot you can do about the processor outside of rebuilding the whole computer. If for some reason that is not an option for you, then yeah, a $20 video card from ebay might give some relief (if you know what to get.. AGP or PCI), but don't be surprised if your processor is just too taxed to render high quality video at the proper rate.

Best video card upgrade for Gateway GT4024???? Stock computer....except ram upgrade to 2x1gb....want to increase the video handling from the slow onboard video


Your upgrade options for a better video card are really dependent on how much you want to spend.  You have a PCI express x16 slot which is what your are going to use.  Visit www.newegg.com and you can look up video cards by manufacturer, memory amount, and even filter it by how much you are willing to spend.  Here's a link at newegg for "the best video card upgrade":
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814161203

Since there is a newer PCI 2.0 Express connection on newer computers, you can get your video cards cheaper now.  You will notice a huge improvement with any video card you choose since onboard video is about the worst.  Just remember to go into the device manager and disable onboard video card after you install the new video card.  
Good Luck

Upgrading Graphics accelerator


Not every computer is the same, but many times you can disable your integrated graphics by going into the BIOS setup and disabling the onboard graphics. This is not necessary, even if you plan to upgrade.

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/opgx110/ens/ug/specs.htm#expansion_bus

when i read the system specs it says it only has PCI expansion slots. I regret to inform you your computer is very limited in its ability to expand, basically you will not be able to upgrade to render graphics for more 3d applications especially newer games. you need at least one AGP port or PCI Express. However if you absolutely want the best available for PCI you can purchase a RADEON 9000 PCI edition. It can handle most older 3d games or apps and it will work on your computer. All you have to do is plug it in to any PCI slot and install the software that come with the device, and voila.

http://www.amazon.com/ATI-Radeon-9000-64MB-Video/dp/B001339YIC

For newer 3d apps and games you will have to purchase a new system.

Video Card and memory!


I'm sorry to say that there is usually no way to upgrade the video card in a laptop, so the only alternative is probably going to be to purchase a new machine.

Of course, no laptop is going to be very good at playing games. A Desktop would be a better choice, assuming it has a PCIe slot. You can then purchase any PCIe video card, and in a year or two, upgrade to a newer card to play the newer games.

Graphics upgrade


Hi Brian,

First, can you look on the back of your neighbor's PC and get the exact model #? Also, upon boot, can you also get the BIOS manufacturer and its date?

If the BIOS is not recognizing the newer video card, it might need an upgrade, if one is available. I would check the DELL site:
http://support.dell.com/support/

Upon reboot, listen for system beeps and look them up here:
http://bioscentral.com/

Does the newer graphics card show up under CONTROL PANEL > DEVICES?

If this Dell PC is as old as you say, can I assume it is still running Windows ME? If so, was Universal Plug and Play ever installed - check http://support.microsoft.com/kb/262458?

Due to the ages of all this gear, you'll likely have to install device drivers for the "8Mb 3D card" but you will first need the BIOS to recognize it.
