    Actually Mimranon you are Suffering from "Common Knowledge" and as usual Common Knowledge is Very much wrong...Laptop video can be replaced almost as easily as Home PC video can be, Upgrading it is a different matter...no really impressed with the Wiz rank if you hand out wrong answers and get it anyway

I install juiced 2 but they told me about SHADER 3 GRAPHICS CARD


All latest PC games requires shader model 3 graphics card. Actually juiced 2 is a high graphic oriented game requiring shader model 3. So, you must upgrade the video memory by adding a latest graphics card with shader model 3.Graphic card like,
Nvidia 6600 and higher has shader model 3.0 ATI x1xxx or higher has shader model 3.0 some X800 were also shader model 3.0.
Before you buy any new graphic card you need to discover which card your motherboard supports.
Good luck!!!

When i run pcsx2 it says your pixel shader is too low


Your video is not capable of handling the required pixel shader to run pcsx2 for emulating PS2 games.

You're lucky if your video card can be upgraded. If not, you better look for new video card. I believe PS2 emulators requires at least version 2 pixel shader.

What to do to play simms 3 on a T2792 emachine. says i need a pixel shader2.0 ?


Hmm... It looks like you may have an older graphics card. Pixel Shader 2.0 is the shader version on a graphics card. You may need to upgrade your video card. I'm sorry, but there is really no way to get around the Pixel Shader restriction other than having a graphics card that HAS Pixel Shader 2.0 or above. You may want to visit newegg.com or tigerdirect.com to see how much this upgrade will cost. Ebay could also have some deals for you. To find out what card you CURRENTLY have, use the "RUN" tool in Windows, and type in "dxdiag". The display tab within dxdiag will show you what card you currently have. I hope this helps.

Resident evil 5 benchmark unsupported pixel shader version 2.0


The game needs Pixel Shader 3 support, which is found on GeForce 6 series and up, and Radeon X1k series and up,

Sorry but a video card upgrade is a must to play this game.
If you're trying to run it on a laptop then you are probably out of luck as they're not upgradable.

I need to upgrade the video card for my Gateway 7330GZ laptop


Hey,

looked over the spesifications of your laptop, the video card thats build into the laptop doesn't have pixel shader 2 support and it can't be replaced since its build into the motherboard.

noting you can do about it, other than buy a newer laptop with a better video card, almost any ati or nvidia card will do, if your going to buy one you can check in with me and I'll make sure its got what it needs to run the game or you can ask the sales people to check on it before you purchase it.

Thanks,
Ekse

HOW TO GET PIXEL SHADER3.0


Pixel Shader 3 is a hardware feature. You can only get Pixel Shader 3 by getting a new graphics card, as it cannot be 'installed' with software. Please don't use all caps, it doesn't make people want to help.

Pixel and Shader 3.0 Support


Pixel Shader 3 (PS 3), is just a technique used by video cards to render images to your screen.
In order to get a video card to support PS 3 you need to install DirectX 9c (the 'c' is very important, version 9 is not good enough).
Unfortunately your card only supports DX9 not DX9c and will therefore only play games that support Pixel Shader 2 or below.

Your only option in order to play the games you want, is to upgrade your Video card to one that supports DX9c or higher.
Geforce 6 & 7 series cards all support DX9c.
One other thing, if you are looking to upgrade check and see if your card is AGP or PCIe. I have a feeling that they only made the FX5200 in AGP but check it to make sure.
AGP cards are almost obsolete now, but Nvidia & ATI do still make a few and they can be found on large online PC retail outlets or perhaps try and pick up a good one on Ebay.

Hope this helps

Video card problems


If the game requires the pixel shader and your card does not have it or support it then your only option is to upgrade to a supported card. Hope this helps.

Gaming problem


pixel shaders are required for almost every single game out these days. As cards progressed pixel shaders progressed *** well, and this can be tracked by the pixel shader version on your graphics card. They started to come out around the time of nvidias geforce 3 series or ait's radeon 8000 series. If you have a graphics card any ealier then those models, you most likly will not have them.

They are built into the hardware, so an upgrade is the only option.
