Display Drivers i'm using intel P4 2.4Ghz on 845G motherboard and Nvidia GeForce FX5200 AGP graphics card. i have windows XP pro SP2 installed with directX 9.0c. but pc is displaying very low graphics like 600x400 resolution and 8bit colors. i tried several times to adjust graphics but after rebooting it appears same. i checked hardware many times and it is correct. i downloaded latest drivers and upgraded my display driver software for Nvidia GeForce. i have lost my original Nvidia graphics card driver CD which was provided with my card and before, when i had that CD and installed old drivers contained in it, it worked fine and now with latest drivers it doesnt work. its strange. what is the solution for this problem?

If you right click on the wallpaper and go to the VC Conrol Center, you will see 2 vc, one with the normal resolution and other with 600x400 and 8 bits. This is perfectly normal

The video gets stuck while editing


Try updating your video drivers. It sounds like the video driver is crashing and a fresh install of the driver might fix your issue. If you have an nvidia graphics card, you can get drivers from nvidia.com. If you don't have an nvidia graphics card, you can get drivers from ati.com.

Biostar GF 7025-M2 v.6.0 Motherboard Drivers For Windows XP Home


yes there are seperate versions for 32bit and 64 bit . check on majorgeeks.com for the drivers, also check cnet downloads for drivers. If the mother board is more than 5yrs old you might not find the 32 bit drivers on the manufacturer's website. also check microsoft , if they have any drivers for that motherboard. good luck

Autocad 2007 causes PC to freeze, may be graphics card related?


I feel you are right on target with the Video. I was thinking you could back off on video accelerator .
right click open area of the desk top-right click-properties-settings-advance-troubleshoot...
then take your slide about half way back and click apply and ok....
I would try and resteat the vid card and give the drivers another shot, if you can download them from another source such as major geek.com
hope this helps...please leave rating

Need video card


Hi there,

The EA website says the minimum requirements are:

  • Video: DirectX 9.0c compatible video card with 128 MB or more memory, Pixel Shader 3.0 support, and one of these chipsets is required:
    • ATI Radeon X1300 Pro or greater
    • NVIDIA GeForce 6600 GT or greater
      • Note: NVIDIA 6800XT/LE, 7100GS, 7200GS/LE, 7300 GS/GT are not supported
    • Note: NVIDIA SLI and ATI Crossfire modes are NOT supported, and may have a negative effect on gameplay. In addition, ifyou have an NVIDIA SLI or ATI Crossfire setup, we recommend you do notuse the 'Force Split Frame Rendering' option. This option has beenshown to have a negative effect on performance.
Chances are your card doesn't support pixel shader 3.0. So either upgrade the card to the NVidia 6600 or you can use an emulator like this:
http://www.transgaming.com/products/swiftshader/
or
http://www.3dfxzone.it/dir/tools/3d_analyze/index.php

But for all the fuss of trying you'll still be better of getting one of the latest graphics cards compatible with pixel shader 3 or higher. Although, do bare in mind that you will need to find a graphics card compatible with your motherboard. This is why many people are now opting to use consoles for gaming to avoid all these 'unknown' requirements.
All the best in your endeavours.

First of all, you should not even mention that is a cracked version, I will fake I did not hear that. I am sure you installed the pirate version only to test it on your computer, and you will buy the original if this works.

Regarding the games here are the specification:

Minimum System Requirements:
You must have these minimum system specifications for the game to function correctly. We do not provide support for configurations that do not meet the minimum requirements.
  • Operating System: Microsoft Windows® 2000/XP (Windows 95/98/ME/NT Not Supported)
  • CPU: Pentium 4 1.5Ghz or Athlon XP Equivalent
  • RAM: 512MB
  • Graphics: 100% DirectX 9.0c compatible video card which supports Hardware TnL and Pixel Shader 2.0 (GeForce FX / Radeon 9500 or higher)
  • Sound: 100% DirectX 9.0c Compatible Sound Card
  • DVD-Rom: Quad-speed (4x) Dvd-Rom Drive
  • Hard Drive: 5.0GB free disk space
  • Input Devices: 100% Windows 2000/XP compatible Mouse and Keyboard (Gamepads and controller are not supported)
Recommended System requirements:
  • CPU: Pentium 4 2.4Ghz or Athlon XP/64-bit equivalent
  • RAM: 1024MB
  • Graphics: ATI X800 series, Nvidia GeForce 6800 series or higher video card
  • Sound: 100% DirectX 9.0c Compatible Sound Card, Sound Blaster X-Fi series
  • DVD-Rom: Eight-speed (8x) DVD-Rom drive or faster
  • Hard Drive: 5.0GB free disk space
This game requires a CPU of at least 2.4 Ghz and a powerful video card, such as
ATI X800 series, Nvidia GeForce 6800 series or higher.

You also need
DirectX 9.0c installed, that may be the reason why it does not start.
Try downloading
DirectX 9.0c here, if it does not work, then, providing that CPU is good enough, you will need to upgrade video adapter or get a new computer.

Download from here and install:
Download details: DirectX End-User Runtime
or
Download details: DirectX 9.0c Redistributable for Software Developers

Sometimes you need an overpowered computer to play latest games, standard computers are usually not powerful enough for new games, that is the reason why they invented Xbox and PS.
