Find the manufacture and model of the video card (open the case up and look or look in the Control Panel/System)

Most likely your video card just does not have enough House Power to run the game. Since you don't say how old your system is or what the brand/model there is no way to find out. Also look on the build sheet/invoice that came with the PC when you bought it.

SOURCE: video card

The only drivers I could find, because Acer's site is faulty, were from the European Acer site. I don't think the drivers differ, however. Click the link below and you'll find all the drivers/software/BIOS for this PC.

Bought helldorado pc game, ive had this game a year now and still havent been able to play it , it says its install is sucessful but when i try to play it wont play


Hello Tracy,

If the game wont launch at all, please make sure all your drivers, especially video and sound, are 100% up to date. Even if your video card appears to be working properly, if the drivers are out of date games may not launch.

Thanks,

Pat

What do you have to do if you try to play a game and it says unsoported video card


Heya

There could be a couple of possibilities.

The game your trying to play is a high end game and the video card might be out of date so would request you to check the system requirements of the game and then compare it with the video card your using.

Secondly, you have a capable video card but the drivers might be corrupted.This you can fix by downloading the correct drivers.For example- NVIDIA CARD needs Nvidia Driver and ati radeon card needs Omega drivers.

If you need more clarification then would request to reply me with the full name of the game and also the model number of the video card and the manufacturer which you can check by Right clicking on MY COMPUTER>>PROPERTIES

Thanks & Regards

Computer wont let me play game dont want to buy the card i need


sorry to tell you this but the 5500 is very outdated. the only thing you can try is going to http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us fill in your info and download the newest driver. (which is three years old). you might just have to bite the bullet and buy a new card. if you give me a price range i can find you a decent card. that should play just about any game you want. good cards are not always that expensive, you just have to know where to look. coreyabrigo@gmail.com

COD4 Computer Version Troubles


The error message you got would show up in the following scenarios:
1. DirectX not up-to-date.
2. Video card drivers old.
3. The game being played with a not supported video card.

Check for the above mentioned and it should be either one of them.

To play the game on the least possible settings your video card has to be or meet the performance capabilities of ATI Radeon 9800Pro or better \ NVIDIA Geforce 6600or better

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.

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.
