Question about Dell Dimension 4500 PC Desktop
My daughter has two computer games one is Petvet2 and one is Hollywood
Pets. One say we need Pixel shader which I know nothing about and
the other one says the video driver is outdated.
I am in need of support figuring out what I need to do or upgrade to get these two games to run!!
Wow, looks like you guys got the problem solved. anyway,
wswanson, what you need to do is upgrade both your drivers for both computers. Certain games have certain requirements in order to function. As what youve mentioned, pixel shader is one of the most advanced video shaders in the market today. Having this and your video drivers set to the most recent drivers is a must in order to cope up with the bustling games of today.
Reading the above threads, you dont have to worry, just follow what my fellow experts advise and hopefully you will come up with a solution to fix your problem.
Good Lucks and regards. :)

Your computer has on board video which does not support the pixel shader. The most inexpensive solution would be to purchase an Nvidia 8400GS video card for about 100 dollars. This would meet the requirements to play both games. Some of dells brand new computers have on board video that sadly do not have this feature. Once you purchase a new video card make sure you follow the website directions to update the drivers. Any other questions just let me know.
