Intel HD integrated graphics will play the games requiring a GeForce 9800 GTX + or ATI Radeon HD 4870 +?


A year ago I bought a Dell Inspiron 660 PC provided with a map "integrated Intel HD Graphics.

I am now looking to download a game on Steam, and I see that it requires graphics card GeForce 9800 GTX + or ATI Radeon HD 4870 +.

How can I determine if the integrated card of my PC will work to play this game?

Thanks in advance!


It won't.  You will need to match the performance of the 9800 GTX or HD 4870 7750 HD low profile video card.  Only cards from low profile with low profile brackets will be suitable to the 660 s.  Here's an example.  660 s comes only with a 220 Watt power supply.  The game you want to download probably doesn't need these cards but recommended for optimal performance.  Therefore, you can get something a little less like the HD 6670 HERE.

    Having too many CD/DVD programs can cause strange problems, especially if they're loading of parts of
    themselves at the start because they will be competing for resources. This does not mean that this issue has been
    caused by those, however, it's a possibility depending on which and how many you have installed.

    You have disk problems as the CD/DVD is actually 4 discs in 1 case (CD & DVD burning and)
    Playback of CD and DVD). So it is not unusual for parts from 1 or 2 to not work so that others do

    Burning at low speed, or by using the master could help. A CD/DVD cleaner might help.

    Brand of the CD or DVD drive can also be the problem. Low quality (cheap brands) are always problematic.

    CD/DVDs have a tolerance + - and your can read/write on the edge outside these discs
    tolerances. They may be delivered, but it is generally more economical to replace the disk.

  • Fallout3, complete Crash, whenever I play the game

    Whenever I launch Fallout 3, it wont let me play for about 5-10 minutes (I timed havn't, but it seems to be pretty random) and then the computer will turn off by itself. It happens with some other games that I tried as well, but so browesing im internet or fun with a broweser-based game, everything will work fine as long as I'm leaving the computer or until I have play Fallout 3 or other games.

    Windows 7 Home Edition:
    Processor: Intel Core 2Quad CPU Q8200 2.33 GHz 2.34 GHz
    RAM: 8,00 (3.25 usable) GB
    System: 32-bit operating system

    Oh! And I play the game on a bass-model system that has run the game using only basic graphics and it does not. This computer is high, along with the game and more than double its needs.

    Also, I got the computer checked and re-checked carefully manually and with Norton antivirus, and everything is clean in all areas.

    I can't find the answer anywhere, please help.

    I heard about what past a lot actually. In addition, this game is BUUUUUGY.
    People have tried a number of things to fix it and who knows what will work for you. I will list what I found (in no particular order)

    • Reset your default controls
    • Reinstall .NET Framework (because Fallout 3 apparently installs a Beta version on your machine - which is just nasty)
    • Delete some/all of your saved games
    • Update your drivers
    • Update directX
    • Make sure that the value of transparency in low water
    • Make sure that the game is patched
    • Disable all mods
    • Update your audio driver (if the last update doesn't work, try the beta version if you feel lucky)

    I wish there was something I could tell you, but it could be really huuuuge several things...

  • Graphics problems during the game Age of Empire II in mode full screen in Windows 7

    Original title: screen resolution and/or graphics problem with Windows 7.

    Hi, I had currently two computers in my house upgraded to windows 7, one a Vista XP.

    I am trying to run Age Of Empires 2 on both computers, the game has installed and running with ease, however it won't let you play the game in full screen, and also the color of things like grass and trees appear in red and orange, water displays brilliant purple.

    I tried to change the windows screen resolution and the resolution of the options in the game, but it only changes in the percentage of the screen resolution, that he chooses to play in.

    I can solve this? All advice is appreciated and thanks in advance.

    PS I tried to reinstall and update graphic drivers, both computers have the same problem of new clean installations of windows and Age of Empires 2.

    Thank you

    It is a problem due to the fact that AOE 2 was built on the platform Windows 95/98 Win9x. It will expose a few graphical artifacts while playing. You can try setting compatibility Win98 or Win95 check. There is also a workaround that may work in my opinion. You will need to search for "how to run StarCraft (1) on Windows 7" in Bing (Alternatively, Google: P) and it would show a site with a .bat file that could solve the problem of graphics in fullscreen.

    I hope this helps.

    What I did with StarCraft was this:

    On the desktop, right-click and select new text Document. Inside the Document, type this

    Taskkill /f /IM explorer.exe
    Start explorer.exe

    Just replace the location of StarCraft with the location of the AOE II.

    Save the file as: 'AOEII.bat' and then set the file type to the text file to all files.

    What happens is that if corrects the discoloration and restart the explorer again after the end of the game. Although there is no easy way to change the icon of the good bat file: P

  • When I was playing the game and my 3D PC show the black screen and the sound of noise.

    Hi Admin,
    When I was playing the game and my 3D PC show the black screen and the sound of noise. And then I can't move anything and I can restart only. What is this problem? I don't know why? Please help me what should I do.
    My PC specs are as follows

    Aspire M5800 (Q84MR375) Genuine Windows Vista® Home Premium, 64-bit, Intel Core 2 Quad processor Q8400 (2.66 GHz, 4 MB L2 Cache, bus front at 1333 MHz), 3 GB Ram, 750 GB S - ATA HDD, DVD SuperMulti Double Layer drive, Nvidia GeForce GT220 graphics (1 GB dedicated RAM) card, Wireless LAN, keyboard and wireless mouse with LCD 23 '' monitor.

    More than likely if this started after you upgrade to Windows7 then you might have to update your hardware drivers.  Go to the websites of the manufacturers of hardware for your PC and get all the latest drivers for Windows 7 (video, sound, chipset, etc...).  If they don't have Windows 7 drivers you may have questions until they create them.  You can also try to boot your PC and also right click on the game .exe file and change the compatibility mode to Vista or XP.

    You will probably need to update the drivers for your video card.

    If you have a computer of 'brand' (HP, Dell, Lenovo, etc) go to the web site of the manufacturer of the computer and find the video drivers for your particular computer.  Many of the largest computer RMP have an "auto-detection" option to determine that you have the hardware.  Otherwise, you will need to enter a specific model number or a Dell 'service number.'

    Otherwise, open the Device Manager (start > click with the right button on my computer > properties > hardware > Device Manager) and click on the + sign next to "display adapters". The brand and model of you display adapter will be shown.  Visit the website of the manufacturer of the graphics card and download the driver appropriate for your model and operating system.

    have windows 7-


    After that, I have to go to master to stop and start again... I have read all the post I can find and I updated the driver and reset the display and SO ON, SO ON, AND...

    I played this game on windows xp and I have done everything but put A BULLET in it and I think about IT!

    I'd be willing to by a new game made for windows 7 but does...


    "HELP!" @!@!


    "I updated the driver and reset the display and SO ON, SO ON, AND ON...". »

    It is better to translate 'SO ON'... to something specific, or you can read suggestions for

    have you tried things once again.

    -Include your brand of processor graphics and model as well.

    -The best place for the hotfixes to vintage games is usually on a specific to this game fan site,

    or the developer forums, but...

    "but mine is 32 bits"

    (Assuming you are using the disk depending on the version of the game.)

    -A 32-bit Windows can be an advantage with some games of this vintage (release date of 97) as

    always use a 16-bit Installer, which will run on 32-bit but not 64-bit of Windows.

    Apart from that, there should be no difference between the OS versions for compatibility.

    -However, prior to version 2000 games (and some newer), may have other

    questions that make them run poorly. Audio and color are two common problems.

    -The camera may result from a problem with earlier versions of Open GL, Direct 3D.

    DirectPlay and Glide3D (gone, but not forgotten) can be a problem sometimes too?

    These questions sometimes have patches on based fan sites.

    -Some 97 games maybe still based back that requires using the window BACK, an emulator "BACK."

    Good old games sells some vintage games with DRM (copy of code protection) removed, and installs

    with BACK box automatically.

    They have Panzer General 2 for $10 USD, but if you expect one of their frequent sales you should be

    able to pick up for US $5-$ or less.

    [ EDIT: just watched add it, and it seems to be a DirectX game 9] It must have been updated DX9

    for the downloadable version.

    It can been Direct3D when released.  DX 9 was not released before 2002

    -All on the theme of DirectX. If you have not updated DirectX, you should do it.

    Win7 is not the most recent DX 9, 10 or 11 files when first installed.

    Download installer Web Runtime DirectX end-user of the official Microsoft Download Center ]     

    -You can also use D-Fend Reloaded, which is a user interface that reduces the learning curve for the DOS window.

    The download includes the box and a few BACK based games start practicing.

    D - Fend Reloaded: overview

    Finally, and above all by an effort... An important announcement for all users of the disk based games.

    -A new (since Win10) problems with the old disk based games comes from malicious software developed by MS - DRM blocking.

    If your disc games has a file called - secdrv.sys - on it, the game will be blocked by a

    Windows 'security update' - KB3086255-.

    I have more information about the blocking of the DRM, including how to work around this - here -


  • After playing the game the Sims 2, impossible to shut down the computer, get black screen

    Hi all

    I am running Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit, and I recently installed the Sims 2 DVD Edition. The game itself works very well. He's not planting or lag or cause my computer is turned off. I can walk much and create characters; what I noticed is that some of the sound effects play, which is minimal.
    However, after playing the game and I'm going to shut my computer down, the screen just goes black and the computer stays on. The processor will run nothing will work. The computer just stays, but the screen remains black. He doesn't even go to the "shutting down" screen or anything. Straight black. I let it stay like that for 15 minutes just to see if maybe, it was just to take some time, but the computer still shuts.
    It normally stops if I do not play Sims 2.
    Original title: Sims 2 causing my computer does not shut down properly?
    I think I have Directx 11, because when I installed my graphics (ATI Raedon 7770) it updated automatically to that. I play other games like Skyrim here, which does not cause this weird close the thing. I installed the patch from EA Games for the game itself, as well.
    Help would be appreciated, because I'd really like to be able to play Sims 2! If one of the expansion packs resolves that it be so. Anything to solve this problem!
    Thank you.


    According to the Windows Compatibility Center, the Sims 2 game is not compatible with Windows 7.

    Method 1:

    I suggest you to install the program in compatibility mode and check if the problem persists.

  • Can't play the game in full screen

    I am now using the laptop with windows 7 ultimate 32 bit

    But when I run some games like Warcraft, age of empries he does not appear in full screen, a black area is around the main screen of the game.

    I tried to change the video settings of the game and the solution of the screen, but it is not effective.

    Please tell me how to solve this problem!


    Thank you very much!

    Hello Teo1569.

    I suggest you play the games in your native screen resolution 1366 x 768.  If you must use lower resolutions for performance and that you want to fill the screen, you will need to check with the documentation for your computer on how to fill the screen, this isn't something run by Windows, but rather the view and as such all computers are different.  Most of the screens usually have parameters like the Stretch, appearance or Fill.
