    You might be able to download the most recent set of drivers for your card. Please provide me with what model and brand of card and I will try to point you in the right direction.

It is probably a problem of an older card not being powerful enough to run the refresh rate and screen resolution.

But first - check that you are running at maximum colours and resolution.

I had a problem (on a friends computer) of not being able to run Kid's games due to the inadequate video card performance - their only solution was to purchase a modern card.

White Noise above is correct - try updating the drivers first (though this will not change the capabilities of the card much).

Good luck.

Does the new xbox 360 gaming system give a free trial of the live internet access or do you have to purchase live immedieately. And is the firmare update a onetime thing, or do you have to perform this...


Hi, to answer your questions, 1 you will have to pay for xbox live you can get top up cards from most video games shops or you can pay by card, you dont have to purchase live at all if you dont plan on playing massive multi player on line games such as call of duty etc etc, you can still play these games as normal on your xbox but you can get to play other players online via the live network if you plan on challenging other players around the live network if your into playing massive online player games, you also get some bonus levels via live but these are not needed if you dont want to use live.

i have got an xbox 360 and all i use it for is playing the games as they come ive never needed to use it online as im happy enough just playing the games as they are.

now for the updates, you can either go through the live network to get the firmware updates or certain games come with the updates on them so if you dont want to use live then the xbox will update from a game, it is not something you need to do with every live game but as microsoft bring out new patches to get round bugs in their software or a new feature your xbox needs to play a certain game well you will either be sent the update via the live network if your planning on using the network or when you buy certain games the xbox will update from the game, the updates come out say every 6 months to 12 months so its not something you need to do all the time and its not something you need to be worried about because if you buy a game that needs your xbox updating then this game will update the firmware without you having to go on live network.

please let me know if you have any other questions or problems.

will give you some advice though, when you get the xbox please make sure the air vent at the bottom end of the xbox as if its lying flat, at one end you have the hard drive if it comes with one or if you buy one but the other grey plastic panel at the other end is an air vent so make sure this is not blocked as it will cause the xbox it over heat in a couple of minutes you will then have the dreaded red ring of death and need to get it sent back for repair so make sure this vent has a good 3 inches of space before anything else as the air is sucked in through this panel and at the back make sure the fans vent is not blocked as this is where the hot air will be blown out.

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

please rate this solution as i have pages of unrated posts, thanks

Your card or driver does not support directx9.0c 3D acceleration


Time for a video card upgrade. You are now two (almost 3) generations of video cards behind.If you are truly referring to a VooDoo card, you definitely need to upgrade to something newer. If the game you are trying to play says you must have a DirectX 9.0c compatible card, you will need to get a new video card. The good news is that just about any card you can buy new would be at least DirectX 9c compatible. The bad news is, I am guessing your card is PCI card. That being the case, you will be hard pressed to find a new one for sale.

Can i play games frm memory card with updated psp 5.51 firmware


it should be possible if you get custom firmware or downgrade
how you can do this is by using a pandora battery and a magic memory stick
you can buy a pandora battery off ebay or whatever for cheap these days and you can use your current memory card as a magic memory stick
all it does is start the psp in a mode where you can reinstall the firmware with whatever firmware you want.
you will have to research into it because i have done it on my psp
im running 5.00 m33-2
but my psp is a 1002 model

good luck mate,
if you have any questions, email me

NVidia Geforce FX 5500 Playing Videos and Games


Seems like your video card just is either a little broken, maybe it overheated a couple of times to much, or it simply isn't fast enough to display all these games.
If I were you and I'd want to play these games, I'd buy a new PC.
For US$500 you've got a PC that can easily run these games on high without any problems.
I'm afraid there's no other way to fix this problem, your PC is just too old.

I hope this helps,
Yannick.

Update


Hi 2208,

Can you tell me what game you are playing?
It is possible that your video card is underpowered for the game.

If this is the case then there isn't much you can do because the video card is a chipset on your motherboard and cannot be changed without a systemboard replacement...

It depends on the specs your game needs to run.
