If the built in video card uses shared video ram (most do), then there will be an option in the BIOS setup to change how much ram is allocated to the video card, and how much is used by the host system. Raise the video ram to 64mb, and you should be in good shape.

If you go into setup at boot and there is no option in any of the menus for this, then you're basically out of luck. Laptop video cards are proprietary, and not upgradeable, in all but the most high-end modern systems.

You will need to install the latest drivers for this card. Go to the Nvidia website and select the relevant options from the drop down menus.

Product Type: GeForce
Product Series: GeForce 5 FX Series
Product: GeForce FX 5500
Operating System: The operating system you are using
Language: English (US)

Then click search

It will then take you to the download page.

If this dowsn't work then make sure you have connected your monitor to the FX 5500 card and not to onboard graphics.

Unsure of graphics card.

Seems you have a problem with the video device. Make sure you have the right driver for it and then try reinstalling that video driver.

Can i play age of empires III with radeon7000/radeon ve family

These are the oficial requirements:
  • Microsoft® Windows® XP
  • PC with 1.4 GHz equivalent or higher processor
  • 256 MB of system RAM
  • 2 GB available hard disk space
  • 32x speed or faster CD-ROM drive
  • 64 MB video card with support for hardware transformation and lighting required
  • Sound card, speakers or headphones required for audio
  • Microsoft Mouse or compatible pointing device
  • 56.6 Kbps or better modem for online play

  • So judging by the listed above you could play, but set the graphics detail to medium first and if the game moves in slow motion, set them on low details.

    If you need further assistance, just post a comment.

    Screen going blank for a second or two while video freezes then jumps.

    If you have on board graphics try removing video card and reboot when computer rebooted turn it of and refit card and restart when restarted computer should recognize new hard ware and should find the already installed drivers if not try installing drivers again
    Sometimes windows does not recognize new hardware until its refitted
