    I have the same problem but the game card I was told by dell, which I did, does not fit into any of the slots that are provided. I found out from a local pc technition that I would need to change the motherboard to be able to install it. Isn't there any other way. The game card I bought is a Radeon 9550.

First I want to mention that the Dimension 2400 is not really a pc that's made for playing games. There is no AGP or PCI-express slot on the motherboard, so you'll have to use the (slower) PCI slot.
How to put your card in your computer is explained on this page of the Dell support website.
If you need help with finding a card, just ask me.

Good Luck

My acer z5600 crashes with multicoloured screen when playing games


Ya it sounds like your video Card is dying, though you can check with different RAM and try some normal games which don't need high Graphic. You have PCI Graphic card fitted on it then try removing and playing the game, then this way you can know what is the fault.

I cannot play games because it shows that my video memory is less


Yes I see that your computer is not powerful enough to play games currently. This can be achieved by installing a Graphics card. A PCI-E graphics card should do the trick. If you want to play simple games then you could go for a small graphics card. However if you want to play the latest games then you will need a very large graphics card and a new processor. Maybe a Core2Duo and an ENGT240 for example.

Visit a computer store and have a look around. Talk to them about upgrading your computer.

Take care!

Does this motherboard have integrated video? Or do I need to buy graphics card?


Well if your computer is new generation computer than it has integrated video and you don't need to buy graphics card to view normal display.Now a Days all the new motherboard has integrated 128mb to 256mb graphic chipset in build , but if you want to play high resolution games and graphic works .


And if your computer belongs to old age,say 8-10 years old than you need to put a PCI VGA card to get normal display.

All the best.

WHEN I TRY TO PLAY SIMS 3 GAME I GET A EROR MESSAGE YOUR VIDEO CARD DOES NOT SUPPORT SHADER MODEL 2 PLEASE UPGRADE YOUR CARD


a Video card (aka a Graphics card) is a physical component in your computer that renders images and graphics, the higher quality graphics card you have the higher quality of games and images you can play/render.

so what this error means is the graphics card that your computer currently has installed doesn't support a model of shader (think shadows) which is needed to run Sims 3 properly

you can upgrade these cards, but it all depends on other components of your computer as to which would be most suitable for you

if you know anyone with knowledge of computers consult them as it would be free, or otherwise you'll have to have a consultation with a computer technician at your local computer store

hope this helps.

Hi. I was buying HP Pavilion slimline 5310sc and want to put a new graphic card in it, to play games. What cards would fit best? Bjarki


Graphics cards are of many companies. For my opinion, Ge-force and N-vidia graphics cards are best. 512 mb graphics cards are well for playing games. As your need of gaming, buy high capacity graphics card as 1 gb or 2 gb.

I have intel graphics card of 128 mb. i wanna play prince of persia warrior within and other latest games but these games not support intel video card. please help me how to play such games on my pc.


dear friend

first of all, intel graphics are not graphic cards, they are on board graphics

new game require extra graphic card put on vga slot or newer ones on pci express slot

they support T&L, Cine FX, Pixel shader etc for modern game

just buy a separate graphic card and put in your m/b

and enjoy new games

thanks

What type of games are you trying to play ?

If your trying to play games that require a better graphics card, then you will need to get a new card.

Onboard graphics cards, typically do not have the graphics acceleration needed to play more advanced games.

Post back with more info for further help.

Thank you for trying Fixya!
