  1. Good day all!
    I am trying to play a game on my laptop but when I click on the icon a message appears:
    Your graphics card does not support shades necessary to play the game​

    I have an Acer Aspire 1642WLMI
    have tried updating the chipset but no luck
    Intel 915GM/910GML Chipset family
    Anyone have ANY ideas???

    its telling you that your graphics card doesnt have a good enough pixel shader

    it the future before buying a game i recommend goin to this site http://www.systemrequirementslab.com/referrer/srtest


    from there choose a game you are thinking of getting it will then test to see if your computer can play it.............. u will need download active x from that site

    sugar, I forgot to ask- obviously the space available and other factors will come into play but what kind of graphics card should I upgrade to...
    I think the current graphics card is the standard with the laptop.
    Cheers

    You can play most games with ease but you'll won't be able to max out lots of settings, maybe not even max out any with that card.
