Question about ATI RADEON 9250 256MB PCI (Retail) Graphic Card
I just loaded Spore onto my computer:
HP Pavillion: 3Ghz, 1Gb Ram, Win XP 2002 Version Sp 3
Video Card: ATI Radeon 9250 256 Mb, Pixel Shader 4.0
When I try to run the game it tells me my video card does not meet the min spec. I tried to search for new drivers using the device manager and was told there are no better drivers than I have currently.
Anyone have any ideas what the problem is or know of a fix?
Let me know if you need any more details.
Well, I can solve it but it is somewhat bad news. Basically your video card is not powerful enough. Here are the ATI specs from the EA website;
and here are NVIDIA
I would recommend buying a new video card. You can pick up a NVIDIA 8400 thru 8600 for about $30 or $40 from Frys.com or newegg.com sometimes cheaper with rebate.
They are fairly easy to install.
