problem new graphics card

  qwesaws 10:34 25 Oct 2009

I recently had my nvidia card go for a burton and by recommendation had fitted a radeon hd 5750 card but when i try to load ms flightsim FX I get the following message "graphics card does not meet min requirements for shader support product requires geforce3/radeon8500 class or better . does this mean I have wasted £140 please advise or can I somehow upgrade.

Disable Multiple Displays on the nVidia Control Panel. Select "Only use one display (Single)".
Try that.

Oops, I meant look in the ATI control panel and see if you can select single display.
