DirectX/Nvidia/Windows 7 issues - Page 3

post #21 of 26
Thread Starter 
Ya, everyone who has looked at my computer can not believe I am able to run WoW on it, I seriously never had any problems except for in Org on the weekends and during 25 mans. The new pc I know for sure has a 1gb card in it. Or at least I remember hearing 1gb in there somewhere when I asked about the video card. I think I am gonna borrow my friends laptop to play wow for now until i get the new one smile.gif

Can you take a good picture of the card in the PC, using a flash or bright light, so we can see the slot it's plugged in to? If the board doesn't have a PCI-Ex slot, it's seriously not worth upgrading the card because I don't think you can find a decent AGP or PCI card anymore that doesn't cost a lot more than it's worth.
Lastly, let me just say ... I literally cannot believe it's still possible to play ANY game on a 64MB video card still. Are you at like 800x600 resolution with everything on the lowest possible settings to get that to run or what?
Wait til you get a new system, you're gonna be amazed at the difference ... that card wasn't even a good gaming card in 2004 when it came out, let alone nowadays ...
The settings were not on lowest possible, they were in between. The only real problem I had was right before the crash sometimes it would say I did not have a video card, or there was no audio drivers downloaded. I was not able to listen to any music or anything so I would just unplug speakers, plug back in and then restart pc, and most the time it would work no problem. Did you still need me to take a pic of the video card slot?

Ya...unfortunately there is NO way to have this card work with windows 7. Never fear, I will be playing WoW again soon though. My friend in Rhode Island is sending me his old card, and if that doesn't work another friend (who lives closer) is giving me his older card. I am not trying to spend any money on this computer bc I just dropped a $200 down payment on a brand new pc, I just need to finish paying it off. Should be shortly (end of this month). Thank you for responding though, it is greatly appreciated. smile.gif

Hey sweetheart, how are you ? Use the rigbuilder in the upper right corner of the page to set up your new toy. Have you been riding at all ? Our MC club Ducati owners club of Canada rented Mosport race track last weekend for three days, it was great as usual. Weather was great and not too many spills out on track, hit just below 170 on back straight before dogleg corner. Can`t wait till next month`s track days. Is their anything you need for your build ? heart.gif
