You have to find out exactly which video card you have and goto the manufacture's site and see if they have updated drivers in the drivers and support section.and then follow the instructions they have for updating them.

My screen on my dell gx620 goes off when booting but I can get in in safe mode?


Hello

It sounds like you have a corrupted Video Driver. Safe Mode uses defaulted video drivers that are in the operating system and are not specific to your video driver.

Boot into Safe Mode, go into Device Manager and UNINSTALL the video card from the PC (this is removing the info about the video card - DO NOT REMOVE the actual card from the PC).

Go to Control Panel and uninstall any video drivers or programs that are associated with your video card. There are two video card options for your Dell - an ATI and an Intel. If you see any ATI programs, go ahead and uninstall them as they may be corrupted as well.

Reboot the computer normally and it should boot correctly but with a very poor looking display. Go to the dell web site and download the drivers and install them. This step will likely require a reboot.

After loading pet vet 2, window appears..pixel shader unavailable...what do I need?


PIxel shader unavailable would point to your video adapter being too old for this game. You would need to buy a newer videocard if your pc has a free slot.

What do you have to do if you try to play a game and it says unsoported video card


Heya

There could be a couple of possibilities.

The game your trying to play is a high end game and the video card might be out of date so would request you to check the system requirements of the game and then compare it with the video card your using.

Secondly, you have a capable video card but the drivers might be corrupted.This you can fix by downloading the correct drivers.For example- NVIDIA CARD needs Nvidia Driver and ati radeon card needs Omega drivers.

If you need more clarification then would request to reply me with the full name of the game and also the model number of the video card and the manufacturer which you can check by Right clicking on MY COMPUTER>>PROPERTIES

Thanks & Regards

Dell E521 getting no video from the board. repair guy say's I need a new motherboard.


Could be but you could also try a PCI video card, much cheaper, you may even be able to borrow one just to confirm the problem.

Also, I suggest check all your video drivers are up to date.

Intel 82845G Graphics doesn't support 1680x1050


You also have to install the monitor drivers.
And yes, the drivers directly from Intel will not work. Dell has a perpritory video, and you have to use the Dell Intel drivers.

I've installed a few of these, and I know they will work.
But I had to go with a 1280x1040 setting. It does work, and will fill the entire screen.

Another option is to put in a PCI video card (yes, a full size card will fit in the GX260's) One bonus to that is you can do multiple monitors. I've had best luck in the GX260's using video cards with an ATI chipset.

Acer Aspire 5920


Thanks. Driver Provider is Intel Coporation, that means the manufacturer's driver for your video card isn't installed yet. Here's what you can do. If your video card is built-in, you need to run the setup CD for your motherboard and install the Video Driver. Alternate solution is click on Update Driver let is search the net for the udpated driver.

Are you using built-in Video Card or a separate Video Card? What is the brand of your computer?

Its saying pixel shader not available


Hello,

I assume that you are gettign this error message when you try playing a game. Pixel Shader is a part of the video driver of the computer and cannot be installed separately. It comes all the geforce4 and higher video cards. If you are not using these cards, you may have to upgrade the video card to resolve the issue. If your video card falls into this category, you need to reinstall the video driver.

Hope this helps!

First things first:
1) uninstall the express maintenance program
2) go to CHECKPOINT recovery and select a date before you install this software. restart your OS.
3) change (if apply) the video driver, for a new one. depending if you got NVIDIA, or ATI video card.

Hello Phil 65

well, the best bet for you, is uninstall the Driver for your video card, from device manager , and ADD/Remove programs, your other features for the particular video card. ONLY.
then go ahead and restart your PC, reinstall drivers according, and have your CD for video drivers and settings program.
that should restore your video , ....or use the Windows Restore point feature to a date all work fine.
good luck
