Video Card To Play Play Left 4 Dead


Hello there, i was wondering what is the best video card? Because i asked a question a while ago on how to play left 4 dead on a net-book. But the gay there said i need a powerful pc to play it. Ok. I have a video card problem. Because. I think it is weak because it cant even enable the 3d acceleration in plants vs zombies! I was wondering if it has something to do with my video card? Or something wasn't installed like direct-x? And i searched here how to know video card brand. But i followed all instructions and i didn't see one! Or maybe i didn't just notice it? I think it's intel because everything i see is intel. So here is what i wanted in my question:

What is the problem of my video card?

What is the best video card brand?

Can someone tell me all the video card products of intel? And which is the best of it?

Pci Video Card To Play Flash Games

What's the best pci video card to play flash games?

My girlfriend plays farmville, farmtown, and various other flash games. Running a dell with older 478 mb with 2. 4ghz p4. Thing is pegged at 100% usage and chokes. Thinking the best idea is to stick in a card that flash can be offloaded to. Looks like the 8400 gs has some anomalies and the 9400 is a little high. Any input is appreciated.

How To Activate Hardware Physx To Play With An Ati Video Card ?

Warnings: proceed at your own risk. The patch used here is not an official patch from nvidia but it works. It was written by genl. It works great for me so far, but your results may vary. If you're willing to take the plunge, read on!

Assumptions: you have an ati card plugged in that you wish to use as main render. You have an nvidia card plugged in that you wish to use for dedicated physx. Both their drivers have been installed. Step 1: download latest nvidia driver. Pick the driver that fits your card and os. I picked the latest beta drivers for 9 series cards and win 7 64 bit. http://www.nvidia.com/download/index.aspx?Lang=en-us

Step 2: download the physx patch. Found here. http://www.+.com/graphic-cards/16223-nvidia-disables-physx-when-ati-card-is-present-30.html#post82837

There's mod 1. 01 lite for x86 or 1. 01 lite for x64. I personally picked 1. 01 lite for x64. Step 3: goto the control panel and un-install any previous nvidia drivers/nvida physx/nvidia stereo vision. Step 4: install the latest nvidia drivers that you previously downloaded. I chose the beta drivers. Step 5: restart your system in safe mode by hitting f8. Choose the top most safe mode. Now run the physx patch you downloaded in step 2. It should report several files have been patched. Step 6: reboot your system again. Right click your desktop and click on screen resolution. Click detect. This should give you an greyed out imaginary monitor. Click on that monitor icon, then with that monitor, select available display output on nvida video card. Then click try connect anyway on vga and then apply. Next click on extend desktop to this display. So now you have two monitors extended plus an imaginary nvidia monitor extended as well. Now you are ready to start enabling physx!

Step 7: right click your desktop and then click on nvidia control panel that now appears. Click set physx configuration. Then click on enabled for set physx gpu acceleration choices. And now you're done! You may run fluidmark to confirm that hardware physx has been enabled. Higher vantage 3dmark scores will also result. And yes now you can finally play batman with your ati doing massively pretty rendering and still get all the cool physx effects eye candy turned on at the same time.

Get Choppy Play Back When Play Dvd

I have a mini-itx based small form factor machine that i'd like to make into a multimedia box. The motherboard is ~1ghz with 1gb of ram. The machine can handle audio, and video files without a problem. Whenever i try to play hulu or dvds however i get choppy playback. (Youtube, even on hd, is fine however). If i get a decent pci video card (only 1 pci slot on the board), would that clear up the chop when i'm trying to play?

Video Lags When Play Mkv Files

I prefer to use one player for all my videos. So far i have had no trouble using windows media player for everything. I have the k-lite codec pack and the matstroka lite codec pack. Sometimes when i play mkv on my wmp it works except the video lags behind the audio. It will occasionally speed up to catch up to the audio. If i restart my computer it will work fine. I just want to know if there is anything else i can do to fix this so i dont have to go through the trouble of restarting my computer. Additional details:- ok so i also tried using classic media player and cccp codec pack and it still doesnt work. Is there something in the settings in my computer that i have to change?

Video Card Dead

Well, i just received a new computer which was put together by a friend. He had it oced to perfection. So i received it and he had the gpu laying out, so i put it back in the pci-slot, plugged in my monitor, and the screen just was black. So, he told me since it came out, i would have to reset the bios. So i took out the battery waited 30seconds, turned off computer, put gpu and battery back in, then i turned it out, the screen went weird colors, then seemed fine, so i turned it off to put in the rest of my things, like keyboard, then i turned on again and it didn't show. Now, i took the gpu out of mobo to see if it would run( the fan) , and it didn't, so i put it back in, and the fan starts, and everything else is running properly, i cn't get any picture though?. I'm brining it in to a store tomorrow, but if they gpu was dead, would the fan still start?, Because when i put it in the motherboard the fan spins and sounds like it is all going good , but it just dont show anything on the screen?

Hardware To Play Cs:s

I recently upgraded to a 30" lcd with a resolution of 2560x1600. I used to play cs:s with a 1920x1200 monitor, and it was smooth. However, ever since i upgraded, the game is way too laggy to play. I figure its either cpu or video card. Can anyone advice on which cpu or video card i should get in order to play cs:s with a 2560x1600 monitor? I can even upgrade the whole unit if i have to. My pc is as followed:

Intel pee 840 3. 2ghz
Winfast nvidia 8800gt 512mb

Play Pc Sound Through The Tv

I have recently connected my pc to my lcd tv using an hdmi cable. I have also got a monitor connected so i can extend my desktop to both. The issue i have (though i don't know if this is actually possible) is can i somehow separate the sound? Can i have whatever is on the tv say a video file play sound through the tv and whatever is on the monitor say media player play through the speakers?

I don't have a spare audio jack to connect to the tv as i was hoping the hdmi cable would do the trick. I assume there must be a way to achieve this.

Not Able To Play Certain Dvds

I haven't had this drive for very long, less than a year, and it plays most of my dvds really quite well, but then some don't play at all on any of my programs, wmp 10, asusdvd(came with the drive), and div x. When i try to play it in wmp 10 it gets to the menu fine but when it starts playing the intro of the movie it get distorted and freezes up and makes my computer crash and restart. In the other programs it just doesn't play at all. I have direct x 9c. This is through an asus dvd rom drive. But i tried getting a patch from the powerdvd site, but that didn't help.

Pc Freezes When Play Ut2004 Game

I did a clean install of xp32, installed and updated all the drivers fine, avoided installing the swe ide driver for the nvidia chipset, and the comp is running smooth. Whenever the pc reaches 100% cpu usage, it takes a while to drop down, and the pc gets super laggy. The main problem happens when i try to play ut2004, w/ all the settings cranked up. The main menu loads fine, but after about 30 seconds, everything gets laggy. The mouse even lags like ***. If i don't exit out, the pc freezes. I remember when i first upgraded my comp to this setup, i played ut all the way cranked up just fine. Also hl2 all the way. I don't know what happened since then that caused this problem. I defragged my hdd, ran antivirus. I tried testing both sticks of my 512 ram, that's not the problem. I tried switching around the psu cables so there's nothing else attached to the wires that's attached to my gfx cables. I tried using forceware coolbits2 to make the 2d and 3d clockspeeds the same. The only thing i didn't try yet was changing my psu. My 400w antec is 20 pin, but my mobo takes 24 pin. But i plugged in the 4pin ez-plug on my mobo, which is what users of 20pin psu have to do.

Pc Restarts Instantly When Play Games

When i play games like quake 4 sometimes my pc restarts, just instantly. No warnings or any type of 'blue screen of death', just restarts, literally instantly when i least expect it. Now i've checked my 3500+ and the temps are fine at about 39c idle and my 7600 gt at about 51c idle. The much i can say is my antec 420 watt power supply was making really worrying noises lately and stinks of radiation. Sometimes i hear little sparks. My ram the crucial ballistix dd400 at 2-2-2-5 and i hav'nt really tested them yet for temps. My pc has been running just fine for months until my games started to bust up like this. The motherbard im using is the a8n-e rev2. The crappy power supply is the antec 420 watt. I cant even find its real name on the net so it must be cheap. It orginally came with a case. But if needs be i'm more than happy to buy an enermax liberty 500watt.

Can't Play Any Dvd Movies

I can read the dvd on either dvd drive in windows (2k), but i can't play any movie. I had powerdvd installed, but had issues (unrelated) with it so i un-installed it manually since i couldn't do do from add/remove programs (received error message). I searched the drive for all the file names associated with the program (powerdvd & cyberlink). Then i used a registry crawler to do the same. I did check the names to be sure there wasn't anything that shouldn't be removed the best i could (there was a couple of hundred). I installed a older dvd program (that i used before), but it won't play any dvd on either drive. These are original movies, not backups. I can read the dvd on either drive, so it's not a hardware issue. I can read other dvds' and burn dvds' (including movie backups) with no issue. Any ideas? (Btw, i don't want to re-install powerdvd again).

Play Windows 95 Game On Vista

It there any way i can get my theme park game for windows 95 working on my laptop that is windows vista? I love this game, and want to play on it again but when i click on the file to start the game it says this system does not support full screen mode. Is there anything i can do?

Answer:- a lot of programs from 95/98 won't work, even with compatibility for the relevant os enabled. In those cases pretty much the only answer is to use a program called dosbox, dos box emulates a dos environment, its a free open source program. It's guaranteed to work for any game or program that will no longer work on nt based windows and above: http://www.Dosbox.com/

Computer Goes Down To 4 Bit Colour When Play Games

My modem can only connect once. If it is disconnected or the computer has been on for a while, the moden gets an error 50: request not supported. Unless i constaintly have music playing while i dial up to the internet, the sound will not work while i am on the internet, but sometimes works after i disconnect. Occasionally when i play games with high graphics, the computer goes down to 4 bit colour and has a "serious error". I would prefer not to have to re-install.
