Depends on the video card that you have. If you want to game buy an inexpensive video card for your desktop that is better then the one that you are currently using. Games take advantage of the 3D hardware and this is usually the cause of what you are saying the symptom is

What are the d3d drivers needed to play the igi game.

the d3d means direct 3d acceleration. that means you need a 3d video card, maybe your video card is not a 3d support thats why yo cannot play the game, yo can buy a higher memory video card with d3d support. thanks

Hello, i got my new graphic card (ASUS EAH6850 Direct CU 1GB/D5) and i placed it in my pc and got all cables on the right place. the screen works, does everything but resolution isnt good and i cant...

First if you haven't done so, you need to install all the drivers that came with the new video card. when you first install a video card only some bare bones basic drivers are used to access and make the video card function. Those drivers will make the video seem jumpy and have low resolution.
Once that is completed and your computer is restarted, you might need to change your resolution. to do that, here is the easiest way:
Find a spot of your computer desktop without icons and right click. there should be a menu that pops up. In windows xp you need to select the menu item that says properties and click the tabs of the new window you have up until you see resolution. In windows 7 it says screen resoultion. Change the slider bar until you find it right one for you.
If you set it to high not to worry, don't hit anything for 15 seconds after you change it and will revert automatically.

My computer shuts down after a few minutes

2 possible issues come to mind: 1) the computer is getting hot (CPU, memory or video card), 2) the power supply can't keep up with the demand.

Try using a program that lets your track your computer's internal temperature. System Information for Windows, , is the one I use. Depending on the cause, you may need to increase the ventilation of your case (add fans - slot cooler by the video card, front, back or side panel.). If the CPU is getting hot, make sure that the CPU cooler is working and consider removing it and reapplying a new layer of thermal paste before reattaching the cooler.

If the problem is the power supply, check the specs on your devices (memory, CPU, video card) and the power supply load rating. You may need to upgrade the power supply.

I hope this helps.

(I am not a gamer but the default power supply that came with my computer didn't have enough power for the added memory and video card. I replaced that and added a back fan (spot available), a slot cooler, a drive bay fan and cut a hole to add a side panel fan.)

Hi...can i ask question??what problem is it...i can't play my nba live 06 when i stall on my computer only black screen appear...because my brother want to play this game but he can't play...pls help me...

The probelm is probably your video card. To be able to play 3d games on a computer, it must be equipped with an external video card. According to your description you probably have an "onboard video solution" which is fine for normal use, web browsing pictures etc. But it does not have the required capacity to run 3d applications. My recommentdation to you; get all the information you can about this, the computer hardware industry specifically Video cards can be somewhat overwhelming to a beginner. Basically there are 2 types of Vcards, AGP and PCIE,. You need to find out which kind supports your computer, or else wont fit. Furthermore, you need to be comfortable with installing and uninstalling drivers and be prepared to rescue or even reinstall your operative system(windows) In case things go wrong. All this can be very difficult at first but once you get into it it keeps getting easier and is very rewarding. If you are not willing, or interested at all in any of this you should be beter off buying a gaming console, they are cheaper, easier, and will offer to you an overall better experience.

Graphics Problem

Yes, you will have very poor 3D unless you get a video card that is better. The integrated graphics are usually only for 2D windows stuff, not games. If you want to get any graphics card, it will be alot faster, and not give you problems. Other then that, there really isn't anything you can do software wise to fix it.

System gets restarted while playing games

Hi there , not shore if this helps but , when your playing game the graphics uses more power to run the 3d display , if the system is completely restarting from bios the power supply may not be good enuff to support this , you could try disconnecting something your not using to test this like a cd or dvd rom .

My pc keeps restarting everytime i play online game or lan game

Most often restarts during games or other heavy duty tasks are from the following reasons

1.) Lack of power. If your Power supply unit is less than 450W then this is highly likely.
2.) Overheating. If your PC's bios has temperature reading sensors then after it is warmed up open the BIOS by press <Delete> after the logo disappears and go to the entry that informs you of temperature... If your seeing a Temp ove 45-50 degrees Celcius your runnin too hot. Get a better heatsink or other cooling apparatus (ie... liquid cooling or peltier) depending on your budget and your technical skill.
3.) Video card over heating/power issues run the PC with the cover off. Watch your Video card. is the Fan on it spinning? Does you Video card have a seperate power adapter? If so is it Fully seated.
4.) Mismatched memory. the memory adapter you installed does it have the same specifications as other memory that is also in your system. Sometimes if their slightly off and the computer sets the timing for the faster memory instead of the slower memory then the system chugs along at a speed that the slow module cant handle and it fails momentarily.
5.) Driver conflict error. Sometimes an older driver just gets in the way of other devices that want the same resources. (Particularly if you are using the drivers that came with the Video card) Go to Nvidia's website download and install the latest drivers for your card and Operating system combination.

Hopefully these tips will help you get you Fragging in no time.
Good gaming
and godbless

I'd be leaning towards a hardware problem most likely your video card. Could you post some more specs on your computer eg video card(type, size, slot type) how much ram you have now, what operating system your running, what resolution your trying to run these games at and what options eg anti-aliasing etc. and what size monitor. The extra information will make it easier for me to provide a more accurate solution to your problem.
