How can i Run "Splinter Cell Chaos Theory" with Shader Model 1.3 ?


Unfortunately, you can't. The SiS M760GX is not a suited graphics cards for that game / 'hardcore' 3D gaming. It's way too slow to get decent performance to start with (no cure for that except upgrading) and secondly the driver software is not fully compatible, it simply doesn't implement all the required features properly, nor is or will it be updated to do so by SiS. (Even) older games might still work properly, but the newer/more sophisticated games won't.

For 3D gaming an ATI/AMD or NVidia graphics card is strongly recommended. Their drivers are way better, they hold the majority of the market and hence most games will work flawlessly on them. Performance still depends on the graphics card chosen and on the speed of the rest of your system (CPU speed, amount of RAM, etc.).

Since the M760GX is a mobile videocard, you probably have a laptop; and most (especially older) laptops can't have their videocard 'upgraded'. And in case you can, it's mostly way too (difficult and) expensive to buy one, even second-handed. You'll end up spending around $100-200 and even when it works, you'll probably hardly notice any real improvement. Besides the chance that the better performing cards run too hot during gaming, as your laptop wasn't designed to handle the more powerful card in the first place.

PS: Some of the latest laptops have (relatively) good 2D performing videocards by Intel (HD4x00 and newer), but these are still not aimed at/optimized for 3D gaming. They might be able to run the older games (like the game you mention) decently though ...

EA Game ''Spore'' - Videocard & Driver Issue


The card does not have the requirements to play the game. You would need to upgrade to a better video card if you want to play this game on your system. Sorry.

The bulletted list contains the system requirements from Valusoft on this game:
  • Operating System: Windows® 98/Me/XP
If you are running win XP, then you probably meet the OS, Processor, and RAM specs.
  • DirectX®: 9.0
To find your version of direct x, click run and type dxdiag in the command box. The Direct X version is on the main page of the Direct X diagnostics page.
  • Processor: Pentium® III 700 MHz or 100% compatible (Recommended: Pentium III 1 GHz or higher.)
  • RAM: 128 MB (256 MB Recommended)
  • Hard Drive Space: 500 MB Free
  • Drives: 8x CD-ROM
If you are running Win 98 or Me, right click my computer and click on properties. The general tab of the system properties will tell you the CPU, Operating system, and RAM. (Almost all CD-ROM drives fit this minimum spec.)
  • Video Cards: 32 MB DirectX compliant video card (Recommended: 64 MB DirectX compliant video card), DriectX compliant sound card.
To find your video adapter, go to:
Start/control panel/system and on the hardware tab click device manager. Then click the + sign next to display adapter. Please report back what under display adapter.
(if it says Intel, Sis, or VIA, you have onboard graphics and the game will not work) You will need an upgraded video adapter to play the game.

Suitable graphics card which would enable me to play games


The problem is that you can't just Upgrade the video card in a portable like you can a desktop system.

Upgrading the video would require a new motherboard with discrete graphics. VERY few portable system have upgradeable video without major cost (Usually cheaper to sell system and buy one configured as you need it) which is my recommendation if that system will not perform as you desire.

Generally, upgrades on portrable systems are limited to MEMORY, HARD DRIVES and plug in components like wireless cards, modems etc.
