  1. Hey, I have recently installed World of Warcraft to my pc and when I try to run the program a error message appears that says my 3D accerertor card does not run with World of warcraft and I should install a dual-TMU one! I have not got a clue what this means! I have a Trident Video Accelerator Blade 3D/ProMedia graphic card! So im wondering can anyone help me????

    Did a quick google on your card, seems like it only has 8mbs of ram on it. Kinda far from the minimum requirement...

    you really need to provide more info about your pc for me to answer that. So far , its your video card hardware that doesn't support it. You can have the best card but if your processor and ram ain't up to par, it's useless

    I think that my processor and ram are fine but i will display here my pc stats.

    284MB of Ram
    AMD Athlon(tm)XP 1700+
    Plug and Play Monitor with Trident Video Accelerator Blade 3D/ProMedia graphic card

    This is all the information i can find

    According to my WoW box the min requirements are

    800mhz processor
    256mb ram
    32mb video card with hardware transform and lighting such as Nvidia GeForce2

    but the amount of ram you have installed is really not enough, you will probably stutter alot trying to load new areas...

    is it a DVD burner or just a DVD CDROM??

    cause if it just the CD ROM the n thats your problem right there most of your CD's are not written to a DVD CD so they are harder to play and read in a DVD CDROM. but if it is a burner then look at your codecs that should help find out why it has the problem.

    just check what codecs you have running with the CDROM/DVD
