Can i play comand and counqer with asis 315 craphics card

Sorry, Sis 315 graphics card will not support the newer PC games like high graphics from C & C and you get errors opening the PC game.

You needed a better Graphic card, with "Shader mode 3" support.

Hope it helps.

I need a update on my graphic card driver. I don't have a vertex shader

Using dating drivers or directX to the latest versions to your present graphic card will not resulting you getting the "Shader Mode" option, because your present card is not support this option.

You have to get a newer graphic card with "Shader Mode 3" options.

Hope it helps.

How do i update to shader 3.0 for free

For "pixel" shader 3.0, you need a graphics card that supports it. This site has a little chart. If you can't find it there, just search for your graphics card on the manufacturer's website. If it does support "pixel" shader 3.0 or up, just update your drivers. Here are the two largest GPU companies' drivers page. Click on the one that's yours.


Find your drivers. Download. Install.

I hope this helps. Good luck.

I cant start my fifa 2011, shows me E001

Fifa 11 Demo PC E0001 Error Issue
Fifa 11 E0001 error happened to a PC with this or a similar Specs: Pentium dual core, integrated Intel graphic card, 1GB of RAM, 128 of vid RAM, 2.0 pixel shaders.
Fifa 11 Demo PC E0001 Error Issue Fix:
1. Fifa 11 requires a shader model 3 or better card. That is error E0001 will be fixed and you can play this game again.
So if you get an error message as E0001 while playing Fifa 11 on Windows 7 or other systems, you should first set to the shader model 3 of your card.
2. This E0001 error issue may also be related to the graphic card that you are using. Check the drivers you are using for the video card. Update and reinstall it if necessary.
3. Get the latest driver pack for the same and then process out for the implementation. You can download the current new AMD catalyst 10.9 graphics card driver here. Or NVIDIA ForceWare 260.63 driver if you are using a Nvidia card.
4. Change the resolution to have a try. Some users get the E0001 error fixed for Fifa 11 by trying the 1280x1024 resolution on his computer.
Hope this solution was helpful? Please comment for more information and thank you for using fixya

It tells me e001 each time i play and i can't play

If you are playing high graphic games on your PC eg. Fifa 11, it is an indication the your Graphics Card does not support the graphics display from the program. You have to get a better graphics card which support a least "Shader mode 3". Most of the intergrated onboard graphic cards do not support "Shader mode 3".

Hope it helps.

Try update your system to "Vista home premium x64bit sp1" and update your DirectX to DirectX10, and see any changes.
