Go to Start, Control Panel, System, Hardware, Device Manger. Click the + sign next to Display adapter. It will show what video card you have.

Here's a link to Dell's downloads for the OptiPlex GX260

Make sure you select the correct Operating System.

Want to know what type of video card you have?
A is the video cable on the main Motherboard of your PC?
Then you don't have one.
If however, the PCI slots vertically on you PC has the video cable on it, then yes... You do.
How to figure it out.
go to Start/all programs/ accessories/systemtools/ system info.
look for anything that have a video or display. click on that and you'll have your info.
another way. start/control settings/ display.
If you have a seperate card you'll see an Icon that will bring you to it.
Once you have this info google the cards brand and follow it to the site and download the latest drivers.
goog luck.

need more information. are the games you play online? if so, you likely need to uninstall/reinstall either flash or java. also try the games in a different browser. if the games are 'loading' but choppy and bad graphics, you don't have a video card driver installed.

How to solve D3DERR not available


Without seeing your system specifications, cpu type, ram, graphics card make and model, etc... I will offer some suggestions:

Update your Direct X drivers, and then update your graphics card drivers, in that order. You may find that completely uninstalling your graphics drivers may be needed before a new install.

You may need to update your video card. If you have an older card, but are trying to play a newer game, even some of the web based flash games like Mercenary Wars, you can get these errors.

Severe lag problems when playing wow I have a dell dimension 3000 and recently started playing WOW. The min. system requirements are 512 + RAM and my specs show I have 510. I have very limited knowledge of...


Although your computer has usually an Intel Pentium 4 chip installed, your memory of 512MB is really the absolute minimum. Depending of your Operating System (WinXP or Vista), you give WOW very little to work with. The 512MB minimum requirement for WOW means, that it would not even load/start if you had less.

My advice is to upgrade your memory to at least 1GB, to give your game more "breathing room". You can order the memory needed directly from Dell (here) or from another supplier like Crucial (here). Just check for the best price.

You did not mention if you have a separate graphics card installed. You onboard graphic chip is a "Integrated Intel Extreme Graphics 2". If you look at the WOW support page (here), you can find all supported (and unsupported) video cards. You might want to consider to invest into a better graphic card (like this one), if you want to keep playing WOW.

If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

This issue occurs if the video card installed in the Computer doesn't meet the video requirements to play the game. You can visit the Computer's manufacturer website to check for any updated driver for the video card installed in the Computer.

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.

Games.


Mike,
Good holidays
This particular problem, need a particular atention, some games show this problem, when the Video Card is not supported, or video driver, is not updated. you should see if your version of drivers, are updated, and Direct X to 9c. according with recomendation on the game programming. (time to change to a good video card) or download any update for this game sometimes should fix problems.
