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.

Check that  between your processor and its radiators there is a glue like substance if it goes out then your processor is taking overheat and not being able to run high end things.

Why wont my acer aspire z5700 pc play call of duty it loads up but its plays very slow


The simple answer is because you are playing a rather modern game on a computer that is not provisioned for playing modern high-end games.It looks like this model of computer includes an integrated Intel graphics chip with only 128 MB at the most. Intel integrated graphics chips are notorious for not being very good with games (unless the game si 5 years old or more). To play modern games, you need a computer with a discrete graphics adapter, and bare minimum 5000 MB to 1 or more GB of memory on the graphics card. Higher end systems might have several GB of on-card memory (it's been a while since I have checked).

My computer won't play the counter strike game


Hi,

This will be because your computer is not supporting high end graphics. This game requires high-end graphics as well as good video resolution graphics card.

If you are saying that you have good resolution graphics card then I think you can also check for DirectX drivers for windows platforms which are useful while playing high-end graphics games.

Thanks,
Amar

I want to install a graphics card since I updated to windows 7 (which won't allow me to use some programs because it requires a video card). Right now it has a standard VGA graphics adapter but I wanted to...


that's easy, but you never said what "some programs" are
(infinite possibles and high end games worse)
or CAD/CAM or other 3D engineering and rendering progs.?
or top flight, Video Editing? omg.
but if you open said PC and see that mother board
you will see slots, the largest slot is the one
called PCI-e (express)
this PC came with ONBOARD
  • integrated
  • Graphics Processor Intel Extreme Graphics shared video memory (UMA)
the PC is a very old and low performance model.
this old PC has no express slots.
most cards sold now do not use PCI now, only PCI-E
express x16
your computer so old , it does not have AGP slot.
so is a relic.
but there are a few remaining companies that still make them.
even used PCI only VGA cards are hard to find, '
those slots are very slow as is all things there.
and will not ever run fast like a modern MOBO would do !
here is one, but I cant promise your unstated Prog will like it.

No AGP , NO PCI-Express slots at all. just old PCI (x 3)
It runs 32 times slower that slot than any modern PC (express)
1220-q3ynongdx4nnghasmode251e-1-0.jpg do not expect something this old to run modern bloated apps well.
it wont. nor will it ever.

Does the video card have a cooling fan on it or a passive heatsink? If it has a fan then make sure it is working when the computer is on. If it does not have a fan you could try installing a small fan on the heatsink to help cool it. Is your powersupply rated high enough to work on that video card? High end video cards are very power hungry and might be taxing your current power supply. If the voltage drops it could cause the video card display to shut off...especially when playing video games at high res. Verify that the video card is properly seated into the slot and you may also want to try and remove the card, clean the contacts, and the re-insert the card. And if you are using software to overclock the card or if you computer multiplier/FSB has been raised then this can raise the clock speed of the agp/pci-express port and cause video problems. Also verify that the agp/pci-express voltage is adjusted to what the video card requires.

My acer 5738G shuts down abruptly when i start playing games. its not even a month now tht i have bought this laptop. what is the problem?


Hi again.
The Graphic adapter is nVidia GeForce G105M, the dedicated video memory is 512 MB.
The games you are playing require 512 MB minimum!!!
This means the the graphics card cannot handle the games you are playing because they are really made for a desktop PC.
The only way around this is to lower the resolution of the game so its not using the high end settings.
It won't look as good but at least you will be able to play them.
If you are a gamer i recommend you think about a gamers desktop computer as they are built for that.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Graphics breaking up


Well, just for kicks... It's a heatsink and not a fan on there? Maybe when playing games, open the case, put a household fan on to circulate the air especially on the videocard. Heatsinks are a temporary replacement in case the fan goes out on the video card. I use heatsinks as a quickfix for video cards at my job...but they aren't playing games on the PC, so the video cards aren't really going to heat up. Yeah, it does sound like a faulty card, but maybe the above tips will allow you to still play games with the card.
