Hi there, when i play some new games on my laptop a message comes up and says something about pixer shader.
my laptop has a geforce 4 440 gp graphics cars .

You're referring to Pixel Shaders. It probably means your graphics hardware doesn't support the feature and therefore the game in question won't work, or will work with less eye candy.

so is there any way to make the games work

The game involved and also the exact message. It might be as simple as switching off some features in the graphics setup.

Look in the options for the graphics but I don't hold out much hope. The only suggestion I can offer is the same as Skyver basically, look in the graphics options for the games in question and try to turn down or switch off added effects and see if that will help, you could also check your laptop makers website and see if there is an updated driver. Laptops are not really games machines I'm afraid and as I'm a gamer thats why I wouldn't have one. You can't really upgrade them as I told you in the other thread you have.
