Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

Some games won't run on my PS3 40mb

I have 2 games that will not run because it says the of the current video settings. Other games with exact same requirements run ok. TV is standard def connected with composite cables. I tied different TV, also standard def but with component inputs. Cannot change from 480i res. If connected to HD Samsung 22" PC monitor they run but of course no audio (HDMI/DVI cables). What are my options? I don't really want to buy an HD TV right now.

Hello.
All games should run regardless of the settings. Are they PS3 games or games from the PS1 or PS2? That could also make a huge difference. The 40GB PS3 is not fully backwards compatible. Also, if they are PS3 games, try the reset default video settings. That might even work. Here is how to do that.


Reset the Video Output Settings. While the PLAYSTATION 3 system is in standby mode (red light on the front of the system), hold down the touch-sensitive On/Off button on the front of the system until the system goes into standby mode again . (So the light cycle would go from: red light to --> green light --> then back to red light) This will ensure that you have held down the On/Off button long enough to reset the Video Output Settings. Once you turn it back on, it should work fine.

I hope this helps. Good luck!!

I have nvidia 8400gs and m not able to play crysis 2 ,it says"unsupported video card found" need some help


It's exactly as it says. The Video card is not supported. It's not powerful enough to make the game run. According to it's official minimum system requirements, It needs 8800 or better.
I've seen videos on youtube with hacks & overclocks that made it actually RUN but 15fps for a first-person shooter is basically "UNPLAYABLE", as they say.
If you're really bent on getting it to run on your current display adapter, try updating the drivers and if you DO manage to make it run, the frame rate is like watching a slideshow. With a better graphics card, not only will it stop giving you that "unsupported" error, it will actually run and be playable.

This is a video device error usually beacause your video card or chipset is not current enough to run the game.
You can try running game on lowest video settings or update your video device drivers.

What drivers will Crysis 2 could work? because I have an ATI Radeon HD 5450 but it says unsupported video-card etc. ; what would I do?


The Radeon HD 5450runs Crysis 2 well.

Just because the game manufacturer states that they have not specifically certified the game to run on your card does NOT mean that the game won't run.

Now that we know for sure the game will run with your video card, if there are issues running it we can look in to other possible causes.

How come every time i try and play F.E.A.R on my ps3 it comes up saying (you cannot play this game at the current video output setting)


You need to set your output to automaticly at the screen settings. I think you use HDMI and have 1080p on it. Not every game can run on 1080p. If this won't help try to put it on 720p.

While playing game , game is jumpy , to jumpy to even shoot someone , how do I fix this ?


It's hard to answer this without knowing what game you're playing but if I get the information off the net right your computer is incapable of running any of the new games. It's slow, not much ram and poor video capabilities. A lot of the new games require 2 gigs of ram, a 750 meg video card and at least 2.4 megahertz of power to run excellent. What I see of that motherboard you posted under it's only capable of 1.2 megahertz and probably very little ram and an ancient PCI style video card which is about 8 years back in technology.

Wanting to combine 2 computers to create a better performing one.


Sorry to say that is not exactly possible for many reasons like very few motherboards can run on 2 cpu's and video cards, etc but you should be able to take the best parts and combine them into 1 unit, you can have 2 hardrives also but stuff like RAM ... only as much as the mobo can handle... a computer is only as fast as its front-side bus..please feel free to write back for more assistance

Please turn on your PSP and once in the menu mode press select to enter your XMB menu and be sure your settings are something like this (sorry but our tester psp is currently disassembled) =

CPU Speed - Normal/default

You can email me if you want the exact list. We will have our tester PSP in one piece again by tomorrow. Also, if this doesn't fix your PSP try reinstalling your firmware.

Many of the newer machines for sale now unfortunatly do not include a seperate and powerful video card. The machine comes with an internal video card that shares the machine's memory for video loads; iy is built into the motherboard to reduce the selling price. Many of the current games out there require a very large amount of video power and these onboard video MB's just can't keep up with the software and the game slows to a crawl or fails to work at all. All games sold retail come a minimum requirements list. Make sure you PC has all the requirements the software needs to run. Remember this is a minumum list and this is NOT the best hardware to make the game run well. Games today for the most part require a huge amount of power to run favorably and these sale machines usually don't cut the mustard. Check that the CPU is fast and you have at least 1 to 2 GB of memory installed. Check to see if you have a video slot available to install a decent video card. If it does'nt forget the whole thing a get another PC built to play games on it. If yes, install one immediatly and a good one should cost around $150 or so. The machine's manual should tell you if you can or not.These can be expensive however, so pray the machine you have will take a videocard and good luck.
