Hello.

The Geforce3 is an older card, so for some reason your computer doesn't recognize your card.

Try updating your graphics card by going to Device Manager and right-clicking on the card. Update the driver.

Windows 7 should support your card. But, does Windows 7/64 ..

Here's the link for NVIDIA:

Hope this helps.

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.

Installed FSX & it worked fine yesterday. Tried to play it today & it says my graphics card doesn't meet minimum requirements. What gives?


Once you reboot or restart your system, FSX will run the checks that it didn't when you installed it hence the message. Upgrade your card and you will be okay. Suggest an Nvidia GTS250 if you want lighting fast graphics.

Aspire M1641 - can't play games (super slow)


There could be several reasons that is so:
  1. The PC may not meet the minimum requirements for the game. These include screen resolution, graphics card, memory, sound capability.
  2. The graphics card may not meet the requirements of the game - memory, graphics rendering capability etc.
  3. The operating system may not meet the requirements of the game eg ActiveX, DirectX etc. All these are related with graphics/display capability.
Please check the MINIMUM REQUIREMENTS for the game and make sure your PC meets these.
All the best!
