My geforce 8200 can not play fifa 11


Your graphics card is below the game minimum requirements (see link below) I would guess that this was a Dell, HP or other, and yours is basically a stripped down card with missing features, less memory etc. (which is why FIFA doesn't work) Your game also requires shader model 3.0, which will be present in all retail video cards on the list below.

From my information source site:
" Please note that NVIDIA GeForce 7300,8100,8200,8300 and 9300, ATI Radeon HD3200, HD4350, and Intel / S3 integrated chipsets are below minimum system requirement ."
http://gamesystemrequirements.com/games.php?id=956

If this is a desktop system, you can upgrade your video card to one of the following chipsets (video card series)
"Recommended Chipsets: NVIDIA GeForce® 6xxx series (6800 or greater) NVIDIA GeForce® 7xxx series NVIDIA GeForce® 8xxx series NVIDIA GeForce® 9xxx series NVIDIA GeForce® GTX 2xx series ATI Radeon X1600 (X1600 or greater) ATI Radeon X1800 ATI Radeon X1900 ATI Radeon X1950 ATI Radeon HD 2xxx series ATI Radeon HD 3xxx series ATI Radeon HD 4xxx series.
If you need help choosing a new video card, please repost your question and include the make (Dell, HP, etc. or white box) and model #. If this is a DIY project then please include as much information as possible about the mainboard, what version of windows, power supply, etc..

Once you know what you need I would check out newegg.com for video cards. They will have what you need at the best prices...

You should already have a GeForce FX5200 so better than that is the 6600 and 6600GT.

I have a Dell Vostro 400 and two video cards. Only one card will work and it is an Nvidia GeForce FX 5200.The other one is an ATI Radeon HD 2400 PRO. These are the specs from the two graphics cards:...


you cant join two different platform vga cards. simply because they have their own platform and have separate drivers, so they conflict each other thus causing one of them shut off or disable..

My game wont work, it is Star Wars KOTON2


The mobility series from ATI Radeon are not suported by the game... i know that not even KOTOR 1 works with mobilyty cards. That is a thechnical problem you have due to the video chip. You can try to change it but since it is a mobility series it means you have a notebook computer... you will have some hard days rtying to find a video card for a notebook. Try at a repair center for laptops, maybe they have a solution. Note that the MOBILITY ans nVidia Geforce GO are not supported by many games... it's not worth it to mention that INTEL GMAs Graphic Cards are absolete for gaming. Try a ATI HD series or better an nVidia Geforce 7600GT 7800GT 8600GT or better. THe game works even on ATI 9200 and nVidia FX 5200 but there were never put in notebooks

I just installed SIMS 3, and it keeps freezing up and crashing. Is my ATI Radeon X600 the problem?


The card is most likely NOt the problem, best thing to do is upgrade the Graphics drivers and other drivers... If that doesnt work...
Check to make sure the Ram is sufficient,
I believe it would be the problem if its a older card, and Sims 3 is a high Polygon game. and Alot of radeon cards Get old quick.. if You really want to play sims 3 Upgrade your Video Card If your running a Crossfire Mother board (Ati only) Buy one of the new Ati cards 4890 i believe is the newest one, Its a great card
If your running a Full compatibility board buy one of the new Nvidia's But before you buy make sure your Computer Supports it :)

New graphics card


Sounds like the new driver has mis-identified your desktop and/or monitor parameters, or possibly it is conflicting with remnants of an old graphics driver. I would go to Add/Remove in the Control Panel, and uninstall every graphics driver there, nVidia and/or ATI. Then open the Device Manager and uninstall the video driver and the monitor driver, then reboot, and insert the installation CD for this new graphics card, and reinstall. I hope that helps...

You will have to re-select your desired screen resolution.
