Question about Acer Aspire T690 (AST690UP820A) PC Desktop
When i try to launch COD:WAW a thing pops up and says...
----- Initializing Renderer ----
execing ragdoll.cfg from disk
----- Client Initialization -----
----- Client Initialization Complete -----
Trying SMP acceleration...
----- R_Init -----
Getting Direct3D 9 interface...
Pixel shader version is 0.0
Vertex shader version is 0.0
Video card or driver doesn't accelerate transform and lighting.
Video card or driver doesn't support high-quality polygon offset.
Video card or driver doesn't support the required stencil operations.
Video card or driver doesn't support UBYTE4N vertex data.
Error during initialization:
Video card or driver doesn't support UBYTE4N vertex data
It used to say Video card or driver doesn't support Alpha Blending.
But i got rid of it by updating my video card. now it says UBYTE4N vertex data. Could i possibly have to update the card again? oh and i also downloaded DirectX 9.0 and also right clicked, clicked properties, then settings and made it the lowest thingy i was suppsoed to. so PLEASE tell me what to do. i seriously do need no problems with my games.
You sound like you are on top of things, but I will give you some tasks to do first.
Since I have no idea on what all you have done, I have some questions / suggestions.
1st: Have you Defragmented your computer? If not this month, please do so ASAP.
2nd: How much free space is left on your hard drive? You need over 15% free space.
3rd: Have you cleaned out you cookies, temp Files & Temp. Internet Files?
4th: Every item you add or install anything on your computer, it starts running each time you boot up.
This eats up your limited power and processor.To see this you will need to use the CRTL/ALT/DELETE keys to open up your TASK MANAGER
On the right side you will see a TAB called START UP. Each item that is checked or ********** is running in the background.
You do not need this stuff running. Its a gift of Microsoft to make it start faster for you and is no longer a needed item since you have so much power.
Uncheck most if not all items, like MSN or YAHOO chat, Games and anything not directly related to the computer operation.
Please keep me informed.
