    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.

I am having problems with my nvidia GeForce 6800 GT. when i turn on my pc everything is fine, but whenever i play games for ex. bioshock or counter strike source my pc screan turns off and says no signal....


You may have adjusted the video settings of the games to higher settings that may not be compatible with your card.
While in a game press the windows key and D together.
If you go back to desktop it means the video settings of your games are to set higher than your card can support.
Hope this helps.
For further assistance please feel free to ask me.

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.

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.

I don't what the problem is.


Firstly have you considered it is the game? try restalling

If that doesnt work, it is most likely your video card. dxdiag into run and click all the run test buttons you can see.
Update video drivers and try installing to a different pci slot.

It may be the video cards ram instead of your pcs ram.
but check the pcs ram is compatible.

About an old NVIDIA GeForce FX 5500 256mb AGP card


Hi Jhacy, there are a few reasons why you're system would freeze when opening a game you want to play.
1. Please check the game requirements needed for PC. You're system must meet the minimal requirements. If you bought this game, the information will be listed on the game box.
If you do not have the box than go to the web site home page for the game & find the minimal requirements needed to play that game. It is not always about the video card. It is also about you're PC system. CPU strength, system memory, size & speed. Operating system, is the operating system updated?
Even over-all system peformance. Run windows system defrag to help you're primary drive re-gain some speed.
2. Make sure you're FX 5500 is using the latest software drivers.
http://www.nzone.com/object/nzone_downloads_winxp_2k_32bit_91.28.html

3. Install microsoft directx 9.0c Click this link to download & install.
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=2da43d38-db71-4c1b-bc6a-9b6652cd92a3&displaylang=en

4. Each game will most likely have (Game updates/patches).
Go to the games main web page & download & install any updates and or patches.
5. Lastly, when you first open the game. There should be a section for (Settings). Lower the video settings for the game. Exzample: If you have the video settings set to High, change it/them to low or medium low.
After everything I mentioned above has been run checked, updated & installed & the game still freezes it may be time to call the makers of the game. Every game site has technical support. You can email them with you're troubles trying to play the game. Chances are after doing all the above you may not need to contact the game maker.

Good Luck Jhacy!
Please let me know if this has helped.

Unable to play the PC game Crysis


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.

Graphics Card Trouble


This is the latest driver for your video card here!! http://www.nvidia.com/object/winxp_2k_93.71.html The problem that you are describing sounds like a video card driver issue or a system cooling issue! Also make sure your operating system is fully updated (Windows Update) . Does it only happen with one particular game, or all the games? Also look at how hot your computer is getting! Ensure that your processor is being properly cooled and there is enough ventilation within your system! get back to me if any questions regards, babb
