  1. Best answer
    The HD 550v is about 4 times weaker than the absolute minimum required graphics card for the game, which is a Radeon 3870.

    I other words, your graphics card is too old to handle such a new game.
  2. but wht abt the error msg, wht is it actually trying to tell!
  3. That the directX driver is requesting something which your graphics card doesn't support.

  7. I have the same problem as siddharth. This problem started by the time I updated my graphics driver. I have NVIDIA GeForce GT 420M in xps 15 L501X. In last version i was able to play the game without any problem.
