Hi,

I installed a game on my PC after selecting to run the game the following error message appeared.

Might be my video card, need confirmation though.

The error read'Cannot create Hardware Vertex Processing'

Many thanks.

It's a Nvidia Riva TNT2 model 64 with 32mb of memory with a pci connection. My OS is windows Xp home edition.

Many thanks.

That paticuliar card if i remember does not have Vertex and pixel shaders.

It's too old.

Thanks Powerless, I did download that driver, but still no luck,cheers.

Ironman, looks like I'm getting a new graphics card. Done some research earlier and found that if I want a good card I will need to get a new motherboard, not to worry. Read the reviews on the Radeon 9700 pro, sounds like a top card, just need to make sure the mobo I get is compatable.Thanks for help, any advise on mobo or graphics cards would be great,thanks again.
