I have a Toshiba L355D-S7825. I run Windows 7 on it. I want to update my graphics card to Shader 3. Will my computer support this? Is it motherboard compatible? What's a good card with this...


The shader 3 mode is a inbuilt option that is designed within the graphic cards (i.e. intergrated or slotted cards). This function usually use for high graphics gaming for PCs. You cannot upgrade the Graphic card to get this Shader 3 options for your Laptop. The best options you can do is to update the drivers & DirectX to the latest for your laptop "ATI Radeon™ 3100 Graphics" intergrated graphic card.

Hope it helps.

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 TRY TO PLAY SIMS 3 GAME I GET A EROR MESSAGE YOUR VIDEO CARD DOES NOT SUPPORT SHADER MODEL 2 PLEASE UPGRADE YOUR CARD


a Video card (aka a Graphics card) is a physical component in your computer that renders images and graphics, the higher quality graphics card you have the higher quality of games and images you can play/render.

so what this error means is the graphics card that your computer currently has installed doesn't support a model of shader (think shadows) which is needed to run Sims 3 properly

you can upgrade these cards, but it all depends on other components of your computer as to which would be most suitable for you

if you know anyone with knowledge of computers consult them as it would be free, or otherwise you'll have to have a consultation with a computer technician at your local computer store

hope this helps.

Fifa 11 starting time say e001 error


E001 error for FIFA 11 - Means your Graphic card is not supported in playing the game. You need to upgrade your Graphic card which support at least the "Shader Mode 3" function.

Most of the onboard graphic cards does not support this function and you get the E001 error when you play the game. Updating your DirectX or graphic card drivers is no help at all because is a hardware compatibility issue.

Hope it helps.

I installed FIFA 11 on my PC and when I run it it comes up with a box say 'E001'.


Fifa 11 Demo PC E0001 Error Issue
Fifa 11 E0001 error happened to a PC with this or a similar Specs: Pentium dual core, integrated Intel graphic card, 1GB of RAM, 128 of vid RAM, 2.0 pixel shaders.
Fifa 11 Demo PC E0001 Error Issue Fix:
1. Fifa 11 requires a shader model 3 or better card. That is error E0001 will be fixed and you can play this game again.
So if you get an error message as E0001 while playing Fifa 11 on Windows 7 or other systems, you should first set to the shader model 3 of your card.
2. This E0001 error issue may also be related to the graphic card that you are using. Check the drivers you are using for the video card. Update and reinstall it if necessary.
3. Get the latest driver pack for the same and then process out for the implementation. You can download the current new AMD catalyst 10.9 graphics card driver here. Or NVIDIA ForceWare 260.63 driver if you are using a Nvidia card.
4. Change the resolution to have a try. Some users get the E0001 error fixed for Fifa 11 by trying the 1280x1024 resolution on his computer.
Hope this solution was helpful? Please comment for more information and thank you for using fixya

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.

Cannot play FIFA09


Uh oh. It looks like you're out of luck.

FIFA 09 PC Requirement (minimum):
Graphics: 6600 Nvidia graphics card or ATI equivalent with support for Pixel Shader 3
DirectX Version: DirectX 9.0c"

Nvidia 6600 came out at 2004 and it supports DirectX 9.0C (Shader 3 came with 9.0C)
ATI Radeon 9200 came out at 2003 and only support DirectX 8.1 (which support shader 1.2 - 1.4)

Nope, Radeon 9200 will not support Shader 3 (neither will it support 2.0).

Time for a new video card maybe?

I hope this answers your question.

Drivers upgrade


as far as I know, it's impossible to upgrade Graphic Card shader model 2 to 3. Buy a nVidia card (instead of ATI) because it has shader model 3. The cheapest one is below $50.
