Question about Dell Dimension E520 PC Desktop
I bought a new computer recently and i am having problems playing some new pc games on it,i seem to meet all of the system requirement that are stated on the games'box,but when i go to start the game up it says-prism3d engine has stopped working,and it wont even let me start the game,i thought that maybe my graphics card wasnt up to snuff,but when i try to update it ,it says that its current and working fine,but some of my games work but others dont,which really baffles me.the game is hunting unlimited 2008,its minimum requ are-pentium4 processor ,which i have,256 mb ram,which i have160gb,1gb hard drive space,i have that also,direct x 9 or better,which i have,but i am sort of sketchy on the rest-64 mb graphics accelerator,not sure if i have this,and 64mb direct x graphics card,mine is a ati radeon xpress 1100,not sure if thats good enough. my computer says sys_no_grapics when i go to play hunting unlimited 2008
i,d suggest your problem, is with either the Graphics card. Or your Memory is very Low. I,d go 512 meg RAM ( minimum ) Go To 256 Meg ( AGP Or PCI-e Card ) minimum.
Install Direct X 9 Or 10 if the new card supports It.
Also check The Speed of the Memory.
Final solution, is to free up some items From The start-Menu.
