Video Card Problems RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've recently upgraded my video card, memory, and PSU on my a1730n HP Pavilion Desktop and I have encountered a system requirements test for a game that my system should be able to play? I have an AMD 64 x2 Dual core 2.6ghz/processor GPU, 4 Gigabytes of DDR2 memory, a 450W PSU, and a 1G DDR2 PNY GeForce 9500GT Video Card. I installed about a week ago and I haven't noticed any change at all in the video quality and game play, my resolution is a lot better though? These are a few screen shots of what I got and what i'm dealing with... can anyone help me please? I have installed all current drivers, checked and double checked hardware installation, and it shows up in my device manager the video card is operating with no problems?

  • Hi,

     

    Thanks for posting in Microsoft TechNet Forum.

     

    Is this game used to be played before? As I know, Batterfiled 2 requires a high performance video card. After seeing your screenshots, I noticed that your video card isn't detected by System Requirements Checker. I recommend that you contact game vender to verify if the video card supports this game in Windows Vista. In advance, I would also like to propose the following suggestions.

     

    1. Update your video driver to the latest Windows Vista compatible version.

    2. I recommend that you post this question in Batterfiled Forum too so as to get the solution efficiently.
