How to Run a Graphic Games without having Graphic Card.


Hello!<br />Greetings!<br />in this segment i am going to share a very usefull trick with you, when i was child i am used to spent my 3-4 hours daily on PC, playing games. i had a P4 which does not have any graphic card into my PC. i wonder that how to play those games like Prince of Persia, Tomb Rider, Call of Duty etc.<br />at that time it was not possible for me as i was very little for advance technical issues. but now here you can do the same.<br />go to the Web Site <br />http://www.filestube.com/3/3d+graphic+analyzer<br />download the 3D Analyser from the given link<br /><br />3D Analyzer sort of "Tricks" your system into thinking it has a Nvidia, or even ATI graphics card! Of course, your games and applications will run in the mode they usually will (with the default graphics and such). If you have an Intel like me, you can now play games like "Devil May Cry 3", "The Witcher", "<a href="http://rdhacker.blogspot.com/2008/08/resident-evil-5.html"><b>Resident Evil</b></a> 4" and or any new gen games which earlier demanded of graphics card.I played my Favorites using it and I m thoroughly satisfied with this tool. You can fiddle with various options to mess with it,and get different games to work with. <br />

Could not find any compatible Direct 3D devices


You don't have the correct video card to support the game. Always check game system requirements. gl

I cant play 3d games


Try earlier versions of 3D games.
Your computer is a somewhat older model. So try playing 3D games released around 2000-2002.
Try NFS 6 or lower, GTA version 2, IGI 1 & 2 etc.
If even they don't work, try replacing the VGA card with a compatible but better VGA card (Cards from nVidia might be a good option).

I made the setup of the game i downloded and when i tried to work it gave me the messags about can't intialize renderer.cause d3derrr_not available


That means your video card is inadequate for the game. D3D is Direct 3D and if you're getting that message it's because your card isn't compatible with Direct 3D part of DirectX. You'll need to upgrade your card in order to play the game and make sure that it meets the recommended (NOT minimum) requirements for the game.

How to solve D3DERR not available


Without seeing your system specifications, cpu type, ram, graphics card make and model, etc... I will offer some suggestions:

Update your Direct X drivers, and then update your graphics card drivers, in that order. You may find that completely uninstalling your graphics drivers may be needed before a new install.

You may need to update your video card. If you have an older card, but are trying to play a newer game, even some of the web based flash games like Mercenary Wars, you can get these errors.

This issue occurs if the video card installed in the Computer doesn't meet the video requirements to play the game. You can visit the Computer's manufacturer website to check for any updated driver for the video card installed in the Computer.

check your virtual memory. it may not be allocating enough space on your hard drive to properly run. also there's a screen for software compatibility. programs that used to run flawlessly on win 98 may not run on windows xp or vista.
