  1. hi guys, i just registeres because i saw some posts here when i searched on google, and it looks like a pretty helpful forum. Basically, im trying to get World of Warcraft to work, and it might be my video drivers that arent up to Date. Heres the message that comes when i try to run it;"Your 3D accelerator card is not supported by World of Warcraft. Please install a 3D accelerator card with dual-TMU support.". The game worked fine on the same card before the last patch. Heres the info on my Video things hehe.

    Device:
    Name:NVIDIA GeForce2 MX 200
    Manufacturer: NVIDIA#
    Chip type:GeForce2 MX 100/200
    DAC Type:Integrated RAMDAC
    Approx. Total Memory: 32.0 MB
    Current Display Mode: 1152 x 864 (32bit) (60Hz)
    Monitor:plug and Play Monitor.

    Heres the information under Drivers.

    Drivers:
    Main Driver:nv4_disp.dll
    Version:6.14.0010.4523 (English)
    Date:28/07/2003 15:19:00
    WHQL Logo'd: N/A
    Mini VDD: nv4_mini.sys
    VDD:N/A
    DDI Version: 9 (or higher)

    I know the card is pretty old, but it worked before so why doesnt it now? Please post any information to help me about this, and please someone post a link for the latest driver, i dont know much about drivers and which ones are the latest and which ones arent.
    Thanks! :)

    You may find in big cities and during raids with a lot of online users, the game will get laggy. Lot of players recommend between 512-1024MB RAM for smooth game play.

    Hi, I am having the same problem as above! But my video thing is a Trident Video Accelerator Blade 3D/ProMedia
    I have tried to download different 3D Accelerators but they did not work, such as ATI. I also have followed the instructions that were above but that did not work also!
    Could anyone help me with this problem?
    Thanx

    I'm getting the same message too.
    I'm running an Athlon 1Ghz T-bird, 512MB Ram, and an S3 Savage 2000 64MB video card (AKA Diamond Viper II Z200).
    I've found that the Diamnd and S3 websites either don't have any updated drivers, or their drivers don't open or instal correctly. Any suggestions, or should I finally just give up on this card that always has driver issues and spend the bucks to replace it?
