  1. Hi Guys,

    I know I've seen this all over your forum but I'm not sure of the fix. I'm trying to get world of warcraft up for my son and I get the "3d accelerator card not supported...install card with dual tmu support". I know you have been answering that for probably a couple years now, but what is the answer? Do I need to purchase a new card? I'm using an HP Pavilion 750n with the stock NVIDIA RIVA TNT2 32MB.

    Any help with this would be greatly appreciated!!

    Thank you.

    You are trying to take too great a leap upward. The 750n doesn't have an adequate power supply to handle the video graphics card needed to run Warcraft.
    The RIVA TNT2 is a good, but very old, video card that was created long before any recent games.
    I would find a way to get a better computer... avoid eMachines and Compaq, but there are low priced machines out there that will do a decent job... and make your son proud.
