No it's a lower resolution for safety due to driver fail.
The game has a safe fail that's doing that because your drivers are not fully compatible.

Well, WOW can be fix, but I suggest, that you uninstall ALL video drivers on device manager FROM SAVE MODE. then startup your PC on normal mode, it will tell that install the video drivers, at this point, disable your Antivirus, and Install ONLY the version (original) that came with your video card. Then fire up the WOW. it SHOULD fix the problem.

SOURCE: my medion radeon x740xl graphics card cant cope with new games.

Your computer has a PCI Express x16 connector. You can replace the card for less than $100; for example, a 9600GT card from NewEgg:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127382

Note that card is designed for a PCI Express _2.0_ x16 connector. The card will be more capable than your computer, but will slow down to work with your computer. It's a solid card, reasonable price.

You may want to evaluate how much memory you have and consider upgrading it if you have less than, say, 1gb. Memory's cheap.

SOURCE: Upgrading my Acer Aspire M1641 Desktop graphics card

The motherboard will support any PCI Express x16 or PCI Express 2.0 x16 video cards. Your main concern should be with the power supply since it is either a 300w or 250w.

Here is a pretty good choice for your price range:
http://usa.asus.com/products.aspx?l1=2&l2=8&l3=725&l4=0&model=2328&modelmenu=1

Input your info here to see if you need a power supply upgrade.
http://support.asus.com/PowerSupplyCalculator/PSCalculator.aspx?SLanguage=en-us

A little money for system memory would be good if you have less than 1 Gig.
You can test it here:
http://www.crucial.com/systemscanner/index.aspx

If you are saving money by not buying a motherboard and want to spend it (which is what I would do), I would put the money into a the video card and power supply.
Like this:
http://usa.asus.com/products.aspx?l1=2&l2=8&l3=726&l4=0&model=2705&modelmenu=1

And this:
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Netzteil-Corsair-620W-ATX-2-2/dp/B000KJNK8U/ref=sr_1_10?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1248740669&sr=1-10

I do not know the dimensions of the Aspire Case, so one thing to keep in mind is the dimensions of the card and the power supply. Make sure they will fit before buying.

If you start replacing motherboards and such, you might as well just go with a whole new system. A new motherboard, new CPU, new memory, new graphics, new power supply, fast hard drives, new case.

This is what you need,

http://www.intel.com/support/chipsets/sb/cs-013541.htm


Not an ATI Radeon XPress 200 motherboard chipset?
I say thee nay to the forums,

1) The eMachines T5048 Desktop PC uses an Intel D102GGC2 motherboard.

Intel Support > D102GGC2 motherboard > Product Documentation and Manuals,


http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&DwnldID=15112&lang=eng&wapkw=%28D102GGC2%29

To the right of the first file -
File name: D102GGC2_ProductGuide_English.pdf
,left-click on Download.

On the next page left-click in the circle to the left of, I accept, etc.

[ The above is a PDF file. The computer you are using now has Adobe Reader on it, which uses PDF files. {Do suggest upgrading to Adobe Reader X, (10), though, if you do not currently have it}

After you click on Download it may take up to 30 seconds before the first page comes up.
It may also take additional time for the file to fully download ]


2) The motherboard chipset is an ATI Radeon XPress 200.
Uses an ATI Radeon XPress 200 Northbridge chip, and an ATI IXP 450 Southbridge chip.

Information on the Northbridge chip,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_ATI_chipsets#Comparison_of_Northbridges_2

Look under the Model heading;

ATI Radeon XPress 1150 (originally named ATI Radeon XPress for Intel)
Intel Essential Series
D101GCC/D102GCC

(Grand Country is the Code Name for the motherboard)

Now look under the Codename heading; {code name for the chipset}
RS400, RS415, RC400, RC410


Information on the Southbridge chip is in the table that is next.
(Comparison of Southbridges)


Primer;

The motherboard chipset is the Northbridge chip, and Southbridge chip.

(Does not apply to motherboards that support the Intel Core i3, Core i5, Core i7, or Core i9)

Chip and Chipset are slang terms for I.C.
Integrated Circuit,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Integrated_circuit

The Northbridge and Southbridge chips have their directional names, from the way they are placed on the motherboard, for one.

If the motherboard is placed so that the Processor at the Top, and the Ram Memory is to the right, the Processor is due North.

The Northbridge chip is placed close to the Processor.
The Southbridge chip is closer to the Bottom of the motherboard, or South.
(Closer to the expansion slots)

The Northbridge chip handles the faster capabilities of a computer.

Processor, Ram Memory, and High-speed graphics.

AGP and PCI-Express are High-speed graphics.
A graphics card inserted into a PCI expansion slot, or using Integrated Graphics, is Not high-speed graphics.
Anything associated with the PCI bus is handled by the Southbridge chip.

The Southbridge chip handles the slower capabilities of a computer.

Anything connected to,
1) IDE
2) SATA
3) USB
4) Ethernet
5) Audio (Codec)

Motherboard diagram,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Motherboard_diagram.svg


In the motherboard manual, (Product Guide), go to Page 11.
The motherboard is shown rotated to the right, in comparison to how it sits in a computer.

The Processor socket is indicated by the letter H.
To the Left is a square sitting diagonally. This is the Northbridge chip.

The Northbridge chip has an aluminum finned Heatsink sitting on top of it,

http://www.ascendtech.us/itemdesc.asp?ic=MB4INTD102GGC2&eq=&Tp=

Click on the small photo of the motherboard to enlarge.
Processor socket in the foreground, Northbridge chip with aluminum finned Heatsink, sitting on top of it.

[ The Southbridge chip also has a Heatsink sitting on top of it. It's to the top left corner of the Northbridge heatsink, in the photo ]

Notice the wording for the motherboards brief specifications in it's heading.
The last specifications stated; ATI RC410 Chipset MBoard.

ATI RC410 MotherBoard Chipset.

In otherwords ATI Radeon XPress 200.

What would be the better video card between the two


Sapphire 9250
http://www1.sapphiretech.com/en/products/graphics_specifications.php?gpid=59

ATI Radeon HD 3600 series
http://ati.amd.com/products/mobilityradeonhd3600/specs.html

ATI Radeon... much faster, and supports DirectX 10.1, rather than the Sapphires support of 8.1

Call of Duty 4 on High Graphics.. yes. The ATI Radeon beats it easily. :)

Unable to change color depth...


Ok I think i found your problem. You don't need to install any drivers.

Switch your display to 256 colors To switch your display to 256 colors
Some games and other software programs require that your monitor be set to 256 colors, or they run better in 256 colors. Many of those programs will switch your monitor to 256 colors automatically when you start the program. For those that don't, follow the steps below if you want to switch the display temporarily while the game or program is running.
  1. On your desktop or on the Start menu, right-click the game or other program that you want to run in 256 colors, and then click Properties.
  2. Click the Compatibility tab.
  3. Select the Run in 256 colors check box.
  • The screen will revert to your default color quality when you close the program.
  • Try switching to 256 colors if your software program shows the wrong color or the graphics redraw slowly.
  • If your software program appears in a small window in the center of your screen, you can increase its size by changing your screen resolution temporarily. Follow the procedure above, but in step 3 select the Run in 640x480 screen resolution check box. Your screen resolution will revert to its previous resolution when you close the program.
  • The Compatibility tab is available only for programs or games located on your computer's hard disk. It is not available if the program is stored on a floppy disk, compact disk, or a network.

Screen Resolution


are you sure you have connected a graphics card. If so you dont need any driver because the graphics card depending on the model has already the necessary driver included just like when you first bought your motherboard.

Now, if your're only using the onboard graphics( that is the graphics card of the motherboard itself), you have to check whether the graphics supports resolution higher than 640x800. On board graphics, as far as i know contains only the necessary that will output on your screen, it means the resolution should not go much higher. But, you still have to check.

For assurance and for the best picture you wanted to have(probably your'e playing high resoulution games), I suggest that you buy the necessary graphics card that is supported by the games. Example of such brand is inno3d series.
