Unable to play the PC game Crysis

Dear Sir,
I am unable to play the PC Game called Crysis. When I tried to play, the message popped up saying "error during initialization: video card or driver doesn't support. Separate alpha blend, glow will be disabled". When I clicked "OK", it didn't paly at all and the message kept coming up.

1. Is the video card problem? I am using a Radeon 9200 Pro Family grahic card. Is this card insufficient? What do you recommend?
2. What is the driver issue here?

My PC specs:-
CPU: Pentium 4 (2.4 GHZ)
RAM: 768 MB
Windows: XP Professional

Pls help.
Tq and rgds,
Alan

AlanChong20, update you're video casr software. The radeon 9200 last update is listed at this link.
http://ati.amd.com/support/drivers/xp/radeon-prer300-xp.html
The date for the upgrade is Nov. 15, 2006 No more driver update are being made.
If you're game still gives you the same error try lowering the game graphics detail settings. If set to high, bring them down to medium. It very possible you're card does not have enough memory to play the game. The 9200 is a older card. It may be time to upgrade.

Error in play crysis 2 unsupported videos card


It looks like your card is below the minimum requirements for this game. You will need a faster (newer) card to run this game. It's not surprising, as many of these shooters have very high system requirements, and your 3-4 year old card probably wouldn't cut it even if it did work.

The good news is that a new card will run it faster and look better. Since your old card is PCIE 2.0 compatible, make sure that your new one is also 2.0 compatible. (Unless you know for sure that the mainboard supports PCIE 2.1) PCIE 2.0 cards will work on 2.1 mainboards, but the opposite is not true.

Here is the link to Crysis 2's minimum specs:

Stretched desktop warning


You can try to resize your desktop by right clicking the desktop -> personalization->desktop background. On that screen scroll to the bottom where it says :how should picture be positioned" and if it's set to "fill" move it to center and try to see if that stops the error. If not the best solution may be to contact XFX about the issue.
