Ok what the problem there is, the onboard factory video card don't support all of the open GL features. About the only thing I would do is to buy a new video card (assuming that you have a lame factory one).Usualy a PC dont ship with a good video card. Might be an extra cost that you dont want to have to deal with, but in the long run, a good video card is well worth it. If you are planning to use Vista (or already do) a good video card will make an overall system performance boost. There maybe a way to bypass some of the stuff that dont work with your video card. http://www.opengl.org/
this website may have some better information.

I AM REPLACEING THE VIDEO CARD NEED TO NO WITCH ONE TP DISABLE BEFORE I REMOVE THE VIDEO CARD TO INSTALL THE NEW ONE


Before disabling the video card, restart the computer and enter the BIOS settings. Often there is also a setting in BIOS on newer boards that allows the user to set either a PCI card or AGP card as the primary video device. Make sure this is set to your video card, which in your case would be PCI-E Automatic. Power down the computer, plug the VGI cable into the new graphics card and turn the computer on. You should be up and running in a matter of seconds. If you don't have video, turn the computer off by holding the power button in until the computer shuts down. Remove the new card and return VGI cable to original location. Restart the computer and use the driver installation disk that came with the new card. Install the drivers. Shut down the computer and try again with the new card.
NOTE: With the BIOS settings to PCI-E Automatic, the computer will check if a card is installed in the PCI-E slot before going to the integrated graphics. Do not remove the drivers for the integrated graphics, you may need to reuse it at a later time.

Video card driver update


First of all you need to know what video card you have. If you have Windows and I assume you do go to Start > Control Panel (switch to classic view) > System click on Device Manager and in the list find 'Display Adapter'. The name of the driver appears. Make a note of it. Go directly to the website of your driver's manufacturer. Follow the instructions to download and install the right driver. Restart your computer to let it take effect.

Warning: this is the manual way to update. If you are not a tech guy, attempting to change video drivers could make your computer inoperable or cause severe problems. As a result, you can rely on a drive detective software to update the driver issue automatically & accurately. This way also saves you time & energy.

Good luck!

After Upgrade the RAM in a XW4400 to 8GB and using Windows 7 64 bit, the machine crashes with a Bluescreen. The Problem semmce to be the Graficcard (HP Fx1500), After changeibg the card to an PNY Fx1500...


Hi there, If your browse to this link: http://www3.pny.com/support/support_landing_subcat.aspx?SectionID=1090&RootSectionID=1061&TypeID=5 You will see the drivers for the PNY FX1500 - download the Windows7 x64 drivers and install those. If you can't get into Windows for long enough to install the drivers, you have an option
You can boot into safe mode (F8 on startup, before Windows screen) and uninstall the current drivers for your video card through device manager. Right click on the graphics card, then select uninstall. You can get to device manager by searching it in the start menu. Reboot into normal windows, then install the new set of drivers that you've downloaded from the above link. Follow the on-screen instruction, then reboot again. Let me know how it goes and I'll see if I can lend more advice! Alex

Online video turns white on full screen. I still have sound, but no video.When I exit full screen it comes back. I'm running XP.


Go to the Start Menu. Go to Control Panel. Locate the Icon "Device Manager". Once the dialogue Box "Device Manager" appears, locate and click on "Sound, Video, and Game Contollers".
Click on the + button to the left of this and double click on each controller. When the dialogue box opens, go to Driver and select "update driver".
After updating each driver (if update not available a message will appear telling you that you have the most current or best currently installed).
Also, if prompted, select to check Internet automatically. Do not search the computer files: you will not find them here (unless you manually installed drivers, and haven't enabled them yet).
Please let me know if you need further assistance if this does not change your video status. Here is one other thing you can try:
Update your Adobe version. This is usually the program that is used when viewing videos online. Also, when attempting to play a video - watch at the top of the screen for a yellow bar - usually a message will appear alerting you of this, which indicates you need to enable the Active X for this particular website. I doubt this is the case, but I often run into this, and very seldom notice this yellow bar. The message does not always appear so be alert of this just incase.
Being this is a desktop, you may need to upgrade the video card as well. You shouldn't have to: You can also locate the video card installed in your computer through the Device Manager and update the drivers for it as well.
Let me know how or if any of this helps.

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.

Disable the existing video card in device manager and try again. The onboard video will always try to take first spot, so disable it ...your video will still work until you can install the new video card :)
