Video games against video card

  WebGuy 00:13 16 Nov 2003

Hi, when I'm trying to run some of the new games I'm getting a message "This game requires a video card with a minimum of 32 Mb VRAM and programmable Vertex/Pixel Shaded Support. The application will now close". I've got NVIDIA GeForce4 MX 420 (64 Mb Video).What's wrong?

18.9 Mb- too much...or...R U sure this will fix the problem? The message says something about VRAM (?) What is this?

  WebGuy 00:45 16 Nov 2003

All right, select English where size is 8.5 Mb... Now I get it...and downloading it. But what is VRAM ???

  hugh-265156 00:45 16 Nov 2003

8.7 MB for xp or 2k

7.6 MB for 95/98/me

18.5 is the international one

you wont know if it fixes it untill you try my guess is it will.

ps when you download the new driver,save it to your desktop.

uninstall any old driver via control panel/add remove programs

restart the computer and click on the driver you downloaded to install it.

But if I will uninstall my Video card driver will I still see what's on the monitor?
