Nhl 2005 graphics problems

  anthony reid 02:56 31 Jul 2005

I have recently purchased Nhl 2005 for my computer upon which windows 2000 is running, and despite a successful installation, the following problem occured. On clicking the icon to initiate gameplay, up came an error message stating the following: your 3d accelerator and/or could not be initialized properly. Please update your drivers. I then attempted to do so at which point it had begun to appear as though there were no drivers newer than the one that i have, which is an Intel 82810 built in graphics card, at version, with a date of 7/23/02. If anybody knows of a newer driver or a way that I can utilize this game without the purchase of a new video card, it would be to my greatest appreciation if that person were to respond.
