It might be a case of simply downloading and installing the latest drivers for your graphics card. Go to www.nvidia.com and click their download drivers button. Then select your card form the list and download and install the latest drivers. Heat could also be an issue. Ensure that the cooler is clean of dust and that the fan is running smoothly. Install additional fans in your chassis if possible, as graphics cards tend to give off the most heat in a computer system. Also clean the gold fingered connectors of the graphics card with tissue paper. Set the graphics of the game down a bit, it is possible that the card is not able to cope with the load it is set to run at. Reducing the graphics may help.

Take care!

I bought a new 1GB ram(DD2) when i insert it it nt work bt whenever i insert it with old 512MB ram then its work bt in bios setting only show the 1GB ram


Maybe 1GB is the maximum amount of memory that your system will hold. And maybe your system likes memory to be in pairs, so when you put the 1GB in by itself it didn't work, but when you put it in with a 512MB it works.

PC wont boot


Check your specs for this one on your Card (should be on the box or in your included documentation), but I believe your card is PCIE v2.1. If this is the case, your card won't work. Your mainboard is an older one, and you can tell by the black PCIE slot that it is only PCIE 1.0. NOTE: PCIE v2.0 cards will work with PCI v1.0 as long as they meet power requirements, etc. (yours should be fine) but there are no updates to fix this on your mainboard. Time to dig out your receipt and look over the return policy. Again, a PCI v2.0 should work OK, just not the v2.1 cards.
Please take a moment to leave feedback if I helped you out today.

I just got cod waw game but computer doesnt support vertex data am i wasting my time. I have acer L3600


Hello there,
COD WAW has a minimum system requirements of the following:
CPU: AMD 64 3200+/Intel Pentium 4 3.0GHz
RAM: 512MB (XP) / 1GB (VISTA)
HDD: 8 Gigabyte
GPU: 256MB Nvidia 6600GT/ATI Radeon 1600XT
One main reason why you cannot play the game, is that Intel GMA 3100 is not capable of rendering the vertex shaders that has to do with lighting.
  • In order to play the game, you need to buy at least greater than the PCIE video card mentioned. It's that simple.
  • For example buy an ATI HD 4670 512MB or Nvidia 9500GT 512MB consider the memory.
  • Click the link for PCIE Video card installation procedure. Installation


Hopefully you will enjoy COD WAW third person shooter game.
Hopefully this information helps.
Thank you for using FixYa.

Good Day, I have 3 motherboards (Gigabyte GA-M61PME-S2). My problem there is no display the onboard VGA, there is no beeping when i get off the memory. I tried the AMD AM3 Sempron 140 @2.7GHz and AMD AM3...


Have you updated the BIOS for the motherboard? AM3 processors don't usually work correctly in an AM2 board without a BIOS upgrade. Also, did you remember to check the BIOS to see that it was set to use the onboard VGA? Likewise when you tried the graphics card (set to PCIe)? Another thing to do is plug the monitor in a known to be good computer to make sure it's working OK, perhaps a monitor setting is misconfigured.

Hillo good morning. my laptop used 512MB RAM(DDR2), I removed it and put 2GB RAM(DDR2), which is entirely defferent product, After which the system work fine and OK, but every time I shake the laptop, it...


Most probably the new 2 GB RAM module you installed is not making very good contact with the motherboard, or is not properly seated in its slot. Please check it. It won't even harm if you removed it from the slot, blow some compressed air into the slot, then re-install the RAM module.

Blue screen of death during all media applications. cant play games, videos, music, flash applications, or chat. ?? help??


The reason(s) you may experience computer freezes, could be software related or hardware related; perhaps it's a combination of both. Below is a broad list of some of common causes of computer freezes.
  • Memory:
  • Video
  • Device Drivers
  • Bad Motherboard
  • Bad Devices
  • System Resources
  • Software
  • The Kitchen Sink
OK, the kitchen sink is pushing it.. but you get the picture. Now that we know what may cause your computer to freeze or lockup the real question is how to isolate the cause and solve it.
However, minimize the risk of your PC performance is the key point of your current work!

Graphics card


Go to Newegg.com or Mwave.com and do a search for 512mb video cards that are PCIe (PCI Express). Find one in your "price range" and go from there. Just don't buy one that says DDR2. Those are slow. A decent Nvidia or ATI card should be under $150. I have a 8800GT that runs just about every game on high settings. They now make a 9800GT as a replacement.

Can i run ati radeon HD3650 512mb on asus k8N motherboard


firstly you need to make sure *********** board has a PCIe slot or a AGP... this is where your ATI HD3650 will go...see the graphic 512mb has nothing to with your main system RAM which is also 512mb.. so they wont be any problems as such and both will work together without any problems... but i suggest you to add another 512mb to your system RAM.. the difference between DDR and DDR2 is that... DDR2 is a bit newer and is faster in terms of memory read/write/access... do let me know if u have any futher problems....
