You need a better video card.

You have to upgrade your pc - buy a new card.

Heres a cheap one

if your pc doesn't have a PCI-E slot then look here for agp cards

If you don't have a agp slot, then forget it.

Pc keeps crashing during online gaming

This sounds like either a case of graphical artifacting, or your pc is simply crashing.

Graphical artifacts are things not normally seen on your monitor created by overuse of the graphics card, such things as white pigments and the odd pixel patterns you saw are some signs of this. I've experienced this problem, and have had the speakers make the noise you heard noise upon restarting the pc. To see if this is the cause I would try running an extremely graphically intensive game or program such as a 3D benchmark to test the limits of the graphics card, and if you see the odd pixelation during the testing, then it is most likely that the card is the problem, and you should call its manufacturer for a replacement.

If your pc is simply crashing then either your power supply is not putting out enough power for you graphics card, or the graphics card is not hooked up to the motherboard properly. The first to do to check if this is the case is to run your pc until it crashes and see how hot your pc has gotten, if it is very hot, then your power supply could be overloaded, or you may not have enough airflow in the case. I would suggest opening your pc and looking for anything out of place, and even perhaps getting professional help from a technology store.

I have installed pes2011 but while opening it,it shows your pc does not meet the system GPU shader 3.0

Can you get into the game options?
If you can then turn down the shading and graphics.
If not available then your computer does not meet the requirements to run the game.

I install juiced 2 but they told me about SHADER 3 GRAPHICS CARD

All latest PC games requires shader model 3 graphics card. Actually juiced 2 is a high graphic oriented game requiring shader model 3. So, you must upgrade the video memory by adding a latest graphics card with shader model 3.Graphic card like,
Nvidia 6600 and higher has shader model 3.0 ATI x1xxx or higher has shader model 3.0 some X800 were also shader model 3.0.
Before you buy any new graphic card you need to discover which card your motherboard supports.
Good luck!!!

My game juiced2 needs a shader 3 graphics card, what can i do, can i download it?..

Shader is a graphics card property. You cannot download it. You need to buy a new graphics card with this feature. It will be written in the specifications of the card as "Pixel Shader 3.0".

It says that your graphics card does not support shader model 3.0

This is simply telling you that the card you have installed in your machine does not support the newer standards the software you are trying to use needs. The only two things you can do in a case like this is find a software package that does the same thing but has lower hardware requirements or you will need to upgrade to a newer graphics card.

Graphic card related

I don't think there is a solution other than replacing your graphics card.  The RX550 does not support it. It only support 2.0.
  • Powered by the most powerful GPU- ATI Radeon X550

  • Four parallel 3D pixel pipelines

  • Two programmable vertex shader pipelines

  • PCI Express X16 lane native support

  • Full DX9 support

    When I bank right or left with joystick the screen Freezes

    To check the joystick isn't the problem, go into control panel game controls, then check that the joystick appears and you can move the cross-hair around on screen, most modern joysticks are
    auto-calibrating, but you could try running the calibration.

    To check the game isn't a problem, unplug the joystick, then use the arrow keys to fly the plane, if it doesn't crash when you bank then it isn't the game.

    I assume the game is Combat Flight Simulator 3, as very old games that were written for Windows 95,98,ME series often won't run on Windows NT,2000,XP,Vista as they are completely different versions of Windows. If this is actually Flight Simulator 3, you may need to consider buying a later version of Flight Simulator (FSX is the latest version, but may not run on your laptop).

    Other things to try are updating the graphics card driver.

    Norton shouldn't need deactivating, although it could cause problems if you're playing online.

    Also remember that laptop graphics cards are never as powerful as desktop graphics, and games very rarely specifically support laptop graphics.

    Hope this helps.

    Gaming problem

    pixel shaders are required for almost every single game out these days. As cards progressed pixel shaders progressed *** well, and this can be tracked by the pixel shader version on your graphics card. They started to come out around the time of nvidias geforce 3 series or ait's radeon 8000 series. If you have a graphics card any ealier then those models, you most likly will not have them.

    They are built into the hardware, so an upgrade is the only option.

    Now that you've reformatted and added drivers again its better to download the latest drivers either from your computer manufacturer's website or the website for your motherboard.
