Ok here come the questions lets look at the issue and see what we can figure out.

you have a intel 865g motherboard:
lets make sure you have the most current drivers for the board
for you onboard video
http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Product_Filter.aspx?ProductID=1044

ok next we wanna check the game compatability list suprisingly this board has one so here you go and click on this link to view it
http://www.intel.com/support/graphics/sb/CS-010472.htm?iid=graphics+865main&

Make sure you have the most current version of DirectX as well

Also make sure any game you play is updated to the most current available as well.

if you are still having trouble playing games once this is done I would look at the games specs to see what its minimal and max required to play it. and see how it matches up with your current configuration.

Icant play l4d in geforce 5700 le... graphics are distorted... Sytem Info: P4 3.0ghz Windows 7 Ultimate 1gb DDR400 Kingston ECS-P4m800PRO-m3 MOBO 160gb Hdd Nvidia Geforce 5700 LE(128mb 128-bit)


Hi marcian_alla,


Kindly double check the system requirement of your game.
The specification of your PC must meet or even exceed the system requirement of the game before you can play the l4d.
If there is a need for upgrade specifically with your graphic card, please do so.
For me, you must have at least 512MB graphic card to play lots of games.

Hope this helps you a lot.

Thank you for using FixYa!

It keeps saying when i try to play one of my games: Initialization Error: Direct3D renderer creation error: Creation failed:


Hello,

The first thing you should do is check on the installation CD/DVD game on for any readme.txt or
troubleshooting.txt files.

The readme.txt file should list the graphics cards that the game is compatible with. Make sure that your graphics card is compatible with the game.

Also the same file may tell you which version of DirectX the game requires.

Make sure you have the version of DirectX required installed. Most games have the DirectX libraries needed in a folder on the game's installation CD/DVD.

Also there is a program in C:\Windows\System32 called dxdiag.exe you can run this to diagnose your DirectX setup and your machine.

Hope this helps.

Vice city game is not playing


Does your system support the following minimum requirements for playing the game?

800 MHz Intel Pentium III or 800 MHz AMD Athlon or 1.2GHz Intel Celeron or 1.2 GHz AMD Duron processor
128 MB of RAM
8 speed CD / DVD drive
915 MB of free hard disk space
(+ 635 MB if video card does NOT support DirectX Texture Compression)
32 MB video card with DirectX 9.0 compatible drivers ("GeForce" or better)
Sound Card with DirectX 9.0 compatible drivers Keyboard & Mouse

Your motherboard has Intel® Extreme Graphics 2 controller as the onboard graphics controller. Search the Internet whether it is capable of rendering the graphics in order to play the game and latest drivers for your onboard graphic card are installed.

Can NBA2k10 (PC) work for Nvidia 8200M G (128mb) (integrated)?


It can play it, but for a good rendering you should put the game at the lowest settings and at low resolution. Save a few bucks more and buy a separate video card.

Arcade game space invaders, may need new


Perhaps the rendering engine is corrupt? Does the board experience any crashing or blue screens inside windows or any other gui? is it only giving you trouble in the game? Perhaps the game was written for an older chipset and cannot be rendered on this platform.

Unsupported Video Drivers


It is referring to the capabilities of your video subsystem. Check your motherboard manual if you are using an on-board video controller or the documentation for your add-in video card to see if it supports this feature. If it doesn't, you will need to buy a video card that supports it in order to play the game.

Games are not installing


OK.....first of all u need a graphics card to play games. At least not all games. Some games do not need a graphics card. It all depends on the game..... Display memory is the memory of ur graphics card.....it starts from 32mb and goes upto 320 mb( price increasing accordingly)

To find out how much display memory u already have go to:
Start>Run, type dxdiag and press enter. a dialog box opens up...... now click the display tab on top.

This area gives u info on ur current display memory...........


If u want u can give me the details listed under that display tab in the device section and i can tell u a list of games tht will work and also suggest necessary upgrades
