If you know the brand of your video driver go to the makers website and do a search for the drivers for your OS (operating system ie Win 8, XP, Win 7, Vista etc . . . ). If you are not sure of the video card brand and have a brand name computer go to their website and do the same.

PIxel shader unavailable would point to your video adapter being too old for this game. You would need to buy a newer videocard if your pc has a free slot.

Bought helldorado pc game, ive had this game a year now and still havent been able to play it , it says its install is sucessful but when i try to play it wont play


Hello Tracy,

If the game wont launch at all, please make sure all your drivers, especially video and sound, are 100% up to date. Even if your video card appears to be working properly, if the drivers are out of date games may not launch.

Thanks,

Pat

What do you have to do if you try to play a game and it says unsoported video card


Heya

There could be a couple of possibilities.

The game your trying to play is a high end game and the video card might be out of date so would request you to check the system requirements of the game and then compare it with the video card your using.

Secondly, you have a capable video card but the drivers might be corrupted.This you can fix by downloading the correct drivers.For example- NVIDIA CARD needs Nvidia Driver and ati radeon card needs Omega drivers.

If you need more clarification then would request to reply me with the full name of the game and also the model number of the video card and the manufacturer which you can check by Right clicking on MY COMPUTER>>PROPERTIES

Thanks & Regards

SOUNDDEVICENOTFOUND


Hello

Check to see if the sound driver is still installed. Go to "Settings," "Control Panel," "System" and "Device Manager. Click to expand "Sound, video and game controllers." Your sound driver should be displayed. If you deleted it accidentally, it will say something like "No sound driver installed."

Check the status of your sound driver if it is still installed. Right-click on the name of your sound driver and click "Properties." It should say "The device is working properly." If it does not, or if it says it is working properly and it really does not, you will have to uninstall your existing driver and install a new one or complete a System Restore.

Complete a System Restore to restore your computer to a date before you suspect your sound driver was deleted. The best way to do this is open your general help directory (on a PC, go to your desktop and press F1) and search for "System Restore." Follow the steps when prompted and you will be shown a calendar with highlighted dates. These are dates during which a snapshot of your computer's settings was saved. Pick the date closest to the current one to ensure the least number of potentially vital files lost. If the sound still does not work, repeat the process, going back to the second closest date and continue until you have sound or you have run out of dates. If this happens, you will need to install a new sound driver.

Uninstall the existing sound driver if you still have it installed. You will be able to do this by going to "Settings," "Control Panel," "System" and "Device Manager." Click to expand "Sound, video and game controllers." Now right-click and select "Uninstall."

Download and install new sound driver. Choose one from the "Driver Files" website or search for one according to your operating system in a search engine. Follow the installation instructions

Make sure that your drivers for your video card are all up to date. Certain drivers can affect the playability of some games. If not, please let me know your video cards model number.

It won't open at all





100% PC Compatible
Pentium 266 MHz or higher
32 MB RAM
50 MB free hard disk
8x Speed required
Microsoft compatible mouse
16-bit High Color 3D graphics
3D graphics card with 16 MB RAM

You can identify the hardware in your computer using the Directx Diagnostic tool:
  • Click on the Start button and choose Run
  • Type "dxdiag" without the quotes then press ok
If you receive a message related to checking for whql signatures, choose Yes.
On the first tab, system, you can find the following information pertinent to game requirements:
  • Operating System
  • Processor
  • Memory
On the display tab (Under 'Device' on the left):
  • Name - The name given to the card by the manufacturer, this will usually, but not always contain information on the chip type it uses
  • Manufacturer - The company who manufactured the card
  • Chip type - The information in this section needs to match the videocard type specified on the game's minimum specification found on the packaging
  • Approx total memory - The amount of video memory. With onboard videocards, this may be shared with the system memory
On the display tab (Under 'Driver' on the right):
  • Version - The software installed controlling the videocard
  • Date - This gives an indication of how up to date your videocard software is. A more current date is more beneficial in running games on a PC
On the sound tab:
  • Name - The name given to the card by the manufacturer
  • Version - The software installed controlling the soundcard
  • Date - This gives an indication of how up to date your soundcard software is. A more current date is more beneficial in running games on a PC

hope this works for you, update drivers and see if you can run this on your own PC

Pc hang


depending on what "SF" (which ever game that may be) requires you may want to make sure that if you are a windows user then to make sure you have the most up to date drivers for your video card and make sure you have sufficient amount of ram installed as well as video card requirements on your computer. most games these days games require a good hand full of resources such as call of duty 4? or crysis? half life 2, fear, any MMORPG games etc so make sure your computer has enough resources to run this game you speak of and make sure your not tying up other usefull resources on background applications you are running by either closing them or bringing task manager up and closing them that way (personaly i prefer task manager because it shows you what and which apps are using all your resources) make sure also that your DX (Direct X) is the most up to date (dumb comment but you would be amazed on how many users complain because they say everything is up to date but later to see that they have direct x 9 ver "B" installed rather then version "C" so please make sure drivers, software, game updates (if available) DX9 update and requirements such as ram, video card, video card ram are even suffient enough for that game to run smooth

Running a game on my laptop


I would bet that your graphics driver is out of date or the video chip on the computer is not powerful enough to run the game. So check for a newer driver or get a replacement video card.
