Driver problem?
« on: December 03, 2011, 01:56:38 PM »
Hello Shane, I was wondering if you have a tool that will check if my current video driver is up to date?
I just bought East India Company (game) and was sure I had at least the min requirments but after installing the game I have ran into some graphic issues. During game play the map is gltichy and looks like its half loaded.

I am running Vista on a HP Pavilion dv7 Notebook
AMD Turion(tm) X2 Dual-Core Mobile RM-72 2.10 GHz
4.00 GB Ram
On-Board ATI Radeon HD 3200 Graphics.

The game Min requirements are:
OS: Windows® XP/Vista
Processor: 1.6 GHz Intel Pentium processor or equivalent AMD Athlon processor
Memory: 1GB
Graphics: 128 MB DirectX 9.0c compatible or better video card with pixelshader 2.0
DirectX®: 9.0c
Hard Drive: approx. 6 GB
Sound: DirectX 9.0c compatible sound card

If need be I can try and get a screen shot of the problem as well.

Let me know if you can help :) Thanks

Justin

Thanks for the quick response, do I have to uninstall the current drivers before moving forward with installing the newer driver?

Well I downloaded and installed that software, I am going to post some screen shots of what is happening now.
I am sure there is a simple fix to this but I don't know enough about pc's to do it lol *hence why I am here*

These are in order as they appear.
As you will see I followed the directions up until the last image, I am not sure from there what to do. Thanks in advance for saving the day yet again for me.

Thats a different error.

I have seen that on a customers computer and it turned out to be bad memory.

SO lets make sure it isnt that (Also the control center uses .net, could be .net is messed up)

Here is the memory test
