Hi I would like to know if there is a patch for my video card it is a
"Via/S3G unichrome IGP" with 64mb ram and ita on-board video card. I bought
the computer at wal-mart it is a HP Pavilion a735w 2.1Ghz with 512Mb RAM
Running Windows XP Home w/ SP2. I am trying to play Halo - Combat Evolved
but when I start the game I get " We are sorry, but youre computers video
hardware is below the recommended minimum spec for this game. If you wish to
upgrade please contact youre computer manufacturer for any necessary
assistance. Machine info: 2100MHz, 448Mb, 64MB VIA KM400 (0x7205) " but
the minimum specs for the game are: 128Mb Ram, 733MHz Processor, 32MB/3D T&L
capable video card.
My display drivers are as follows:
Main Driver: vtdsp.dll
Version: 6.14.0010.0194
Date: 12/7/2004
and my dirrect x version is 9.0c (4.09.0000.0904)

Hello.

I don't believe it's a supported graphics card. - Due to the lack of T&L
(transform and lighting). S3, Via and Intel chipsets really aren't suitable
for modern games at all.

You could try updating the graphics drivers, these can probably be obtained
from HP's site, but I wouldn't hold my breath.

Sorry.
