    Pixel Shader 5 is the newest version. If you dont have Pixel Shader 1.1 even, then your PC is so ancient. What are your specs?

    If you do not have a GPU, then you cannot play games, nor do you have a monitor signal. Your CPU doesnt even have integrated graphics plus it is single core.

    You either have integrated graphics or a separate graphics card otherwise you would not have any image on the monitor. Shaders are built-in to the graphics hardware and generally cannot be changed. If your game calls for higher shaders than your graphics has, then you must install a graphics card that supports it. In other words your current graphics solution (whatever it is) does not meet the minimum requirements of the game and you need a new, better graphics card.

    His single core will bottleneck it xD.

    Well if it's a question of bottlenecking and running the game or leaving things as they are and not running the game, the OP might still want to upgrade the graphics card.

    Strange that the demo version of the game worked but not the full game..

    Yeah the demo works fine but the full game can't work but also here is a way how it's going first l launch the game all the scenes about the game show up the intro and after then a blue screen shows up and keeps telling Windows error and also not just this game can't play but also Gladiator Sword of Veagence l can't play it too becoz the same thing happens

    It emulates T&L according to its description. I wouldnt risk using it since it could carry a virus and/or be unreliable.

    By the way, this isn't a model number. It might be a serial number but it won't help to identify any hardware.

    Maiby the problem is that l can't install DirectX 9.0c runtime(supported with pixel shader 1.1 and vertex shader 1.1) becoz it was shown o on the trouble shooting guide that l need it installed but still when l launch DirectX9 setup and somehow when l began instaling it begans complaining that Cryptografic services must enabled and that there is a not valid cabinet file any clue what that means ?? l tryed to find this directX version on the web but nothing just weird versions of it l keep finding

    Because your PC doesnt support it. If you are running Windows XP, it should have it built in.
