Question about HP Pavilion a735w (PL308AAR) PC Desktop

1 Answer

Better Gaming I just got a game called Fable:The Lost Chapters, since I've always been into RPG games, but my computer won't run it, since the game runs a test (before playing) to see if my computer can run this, but i get the following message: "We are sorry, but your computer's video hardware is below the recommended minimum spec for this game. If you wish to upgrade your computer, please contact your computer manufacturer for any necessary help." I've been thinking of buying a new graphics card,but I don't know what card or if I should even bother upgrading this computer model.

Unfortunately yours is the Wal-Mart Holiday 2004 Bundle.
It only supports 1gig ram max and 1- 8X AGP video card.

It will never be a Gamer.

    You can update the video card to an 8X AGP 256 DDR
    A cheap upgrade. But as video games advance so will system requirements. A true Gaming System Custom built would be about 2000.00 USD (main reason I don't Game) I use computers to fix computers.

How can I upgrade my etower to an adequate gaming cpu?


Sorry, but the specs for the PC noted just won't support today's media rich, robust internet, and not to mentions games. Any hardware upgrades will eventually lead to a new system.

How do i upgrade my packard bell imax mini n3600? i want it to wrk better as a gaming computer


This is a media PC and not meant for hard gaming. My advice don't waste your money on this PC to turn it to a gaming PC. The components are all built-in onto the motherboard except for the RAM & HDD.

Call tech support for your Antivirus and/or Firewall company and they can help you very easily (they know their software better than anyone) to give you access to gaming site.

When i run project igi it tells me ihave no d3d drivers


Check the Following Things:

1.) Does your computer play 3D Accelerated games normally without a problem. (Example: World of Warcraft, Call of Duty, Fable, Grim Fandango, Grand Theft Auto)

If so than your D3D drivers are installed and operational. If not then here is what you need to do:

Find out what kind of video card is in your machine. Usually this can be done by right clicking on My Computer (windows) and selecting properties. In the window that pops-up look for Device Manager.
In Device Manager there will be a small icon labeled Display with a plus sign to the left of it. Click this plus sign to see what device(s) are listed. Most people with gaming computers will have ATI or NVIDIA brand video cards.

Once you have identified what you have go to google or dogpile.com and search for drivers for that model and brand of card. Install these drivers and restart your computer. This should fix the problem. If the problem persists see option 2.

2.) PC Plays 3D Games Software still doesn't work:

In this case there may be a problem (conflict) within the Project IGI program. Try to locate a setup or installation file for this software and reinstall it. (Uninstalling it first will make things easier).

I have a game called "fable the lost chapters" and i get a black sreen after i leave the first town and then every thing gams can any one help me??


Dear,
install the game again after saving ur game files where u have already reached. B'coz when u cleared a stage or save ur game in the game mode, a folder cotains saved game files saves ur games. so when u install a new copy of ur game then copy and paste that saved files in the dedicated game saving folder. u can find the saved game folder by keeping a sight to save file name in the game which u wrote while saving the game.
regards,
