Re: Nvidia GeForce4 MX440SE 128 MB No pixel shader

Run the test below to see what you need to run it.

pixel shader is built into the card so therefore a better card is required to play the game.

GPU sheader 2

The ATI Radeon 9250 card only supports Pixel Shader version 1.1 or 1.4 and older. It will not support Pixel Shader version 2.0. You would need to upgrade your graphics card if your game or application requires Pixel Shader 2.0.

I have a nvidia geforce 9400 Gt graphics card how can i overclock

Read this...

You're not going to get a lot out of that card, it's pretty stripped down being a 9400. Anyways, download Rivatuner then after it detects your video card it will update your registry which will allow it to manipulate your video card.

You then use it to increase your Memory and Core clocks, and also the shader clock in VERY small steps. Increase it by perhaps 20MHz then try playing the most visually demanding game that you own and play it for like 5 to 10 minutes and watch for anything out of the ordinary. When you've pushed your card too high there are obvious signs, like random pixels flashing across the screen, textures showing up wrong (colours where they shouldn't be), or your game can simply lag or crash.

Also download Speedfan and monitor your GPU temperature closely. See what it idles at normally, then use Rivatuner to increase your fan speed to somewheres around 75% and make sure that the temperatures don't pass 70C.

Overclocking voids warranties and you can damage your graphics card if you push it too hard. You have to be careful and watch for signs that it's being pushed too hard. Also, you have to make sure that you set your clock speeds back to normal when you don't need the extra power. It's easier on your card then running it at 120% or something permanently.

Hope it helps...Good luck

Problem with my geforce4 mx

Sounds to me like either the card is bad or you have a corrupt driver. If you remove the card will it start? then it is a bad card. If you uninstall driver either through safe mode (hold F8 at powerup before windows starts) or restore to last known working config (also F8). I suggest you go to nvidia website to download your drivers. let me know if you are still stuck, we'll work it out.

Fixed function pipeline geforce4 MX 4000

That card is too old for games. I assume you only have a pci slot for graphics which is not suitable for gaming- new motherboard or pc definately needed!

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

Gf fx 5500 no grafix!

Greetings tashaclark19,

The nVIDIA Ge-force 5500 does not have support for the shader models used by today's games, without the support for shader models 2.0-3.0 you can't play most of today's games!
