Hello, I have 2 more or less identical computers. One has XP Pro, 3.2gh celeron cpu, 80gb HDD, 512mb video card and wont play the game,,,,,, the other has XP Pro SP2, 3.2gh celeron cpu, 120gb HDD, no video card and does play the game, can you explain why the first pc wont play game. Both computers have exactly the same motherboards, all drivers are loaded.
I also have 2 other computers, 2.4 celeron cpu, 40gb Hdd, 256mb video card in one and a 128mb video card in the other and both these smaller machines play the game.
The name of the game we are trying to play is Magic Encyclopedia.
Any assistance would be appreciated
Thankyou & Regards

COD WAW has a minimum system requirements of the following:
CPU: AMD 64 3200+/Intel Pentium 4 3.0GHz RAM: 512MB (XP) / 1GB (VISTA) HDD: 8 Gigabyte
GPU: 256MB Nvidia 6600GT/ATI Radeon 1600XT
One main reason why you cannot play the game, is that Intel GMA 3100 is not capable of rendering the vertex shaders that has to do with lighting.
In order to play the game, you need to buy at least greater than the PCIE video card mentioned. It's that simple.
For example buy an ATI HD 4670 512MB or Nvidia 9500GT 512MB consider the memory.

Restart your computer and your friend's computer, at the same time. Press <DEL> to enter BIOS-setup on each computer.
Do both computers show _exactly_ the same amount of RAM?
One BIOS-setting may allow you to "dedicate" some of the RAM to be used for "video-memory". Do both computers show the same amount of "dedicated" RAM?
hi. The amd semprom has similar to an intel celeron. These cpu's are not gaming cpu's. The graphics card you are using is now quite old- very few agp graphics cards are made now. I would say that the cpu and gpu may be the problem but it depends what game you are playing. New video cards use pci express slot and new cpu's are dual core and quad core. If you are serious abot games then you could do with a new motherboard- maybe one supporting an intel core 2 duo cpu, to that add at least a Nvidia 9600gt 512mb gddr3 video card and have 3-3 gb's of ram.
That graphics card i'm afraid is not good for todays games, same thing goes for your pentium 4. A driver update may fix your problem but that card and cpu need changing, probably a new motherboard would be needed also to fit a pci express graphics card along with a core 2 duo processor.
adcg, the world of war craft is played online through servers, not just on your computer. the version is needed to see if there are issues with your video card, Do you have XP home or XP pro? you have more than 1 mb of ram at this point I am going to say that you have issues with the video card take it back and get an ATI to replace it, they are better and have less issues. you could also be having an overheat problem with the CPU and that means you need a new heat sink and fan assembly to keep the CPU cooler when you are running this game. That is about all the help I can give you , my advice is to take the computer to a service center and have them look at the CPU heat sink and fan assembly to see if it is working properly. hope this helps
