Graphic Card problem!!
Hi, I just downloaded the game, everything worked fine but when I went to start the game, it sas : "No suitable graphic card found. Unable to create the graphics device" Here are my specs :

Card name: Mobile Intel(R) 945 Express Chipset Family
Manufacturer: Intel Corporation
Chip type: Intel(R) GMA 950
DAC type: Internal
Device Key: Enum\PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_27A2&SUBSYS_201A17AA&REV_03
Display Memory: 256 MB
Dedicated Memory: 0 MB
Shared Memory: 256 MB
Current Mode: 1920 x 1080 (32 bit) (60Hz)
Monitor Name: Moniteur Plug-and-Play générique
Monitor Model: S230HL
Monitor Id: ACR0280
Native Mode: 1920 x 1080(p) (60.000Hz)


I checked up the system requirements two or three time to make SURE it won,t crash and that I was able to run the game. It seems that it wasn't enough...

...How old is your card?,and wich Graphics card do you own?
Doulipa Jul 16, 2013 @ 11:19am 
Well, it appears that I totally messed up, the graphic card I thinked I had is not this one, and I find myself left with games and a ♥♥♥♥ty graphic card that can't run them. Steam doesn't refund the game buyed right?
DV2-Maggot BONKer Jul 16, 2013 @ 11:21am 
this is very confusing,,but from what i see you have a very old computer (Chipset 945?) and looks like you have a Laptop (256MB memory) i think

I think you need to buy a new PC...
Doulipa Jul 16, 2013 @ 11:32am 
Nope, I just copy\paste the dxdiag.

Actually the laptop has intel core duo cpu L2400 with both 1.66ghz, got 2 Go of Ram... It's not excellent but it's enough for the game. the problem is that I was told that the graphic card was capable of running moderate games, and it was not. Which is a Mobile Intel(R) 945 Express Chipset Family and after some research this is really not a good card. So well, I have a moderate cpu running pc with an totally bad graphic card. Lol. As you say, I guess that I have to buy a new one to run this one. I already buyed counter strike, maybe I'll be good enough to run this game... Anyway, sorry for the confusion, and thanks for the response. So, no refund eh?
Doulipa Jul 16, 2013 @ 11:38am 
At least Counterstrike is running, so I didn't waste all of my money! Lol.

No refund i guess,sadly

But you did a great buy!,once you buy a Desktop PC (NOT a laptop) you'll be pretty able to run every game out there

Even more games if you build your own custom Gaming PC (as long as a Pro builds the components inside the tower) ,check online forums like Steam or somewhere else..i'll tell you my Rig to help ya (less than 1000$,promise)

CPU: Intel i5 2500K 3,3Ghz (Socket 1155, Newer CPUs are BETTER and just costs around 100-150$
CPU Cooler: Thermaltake Frio OCK (for the looks.. and quieeeeeeet) (near 70$)
RAM: 8GB DDR3 1333Mhz (near 30$)
GPU: nVidia GIGABYTE 660GTX Ti OC 2GB (235$)
Motherboard: ASUS P8Z68-V PRO GEN3 (GEN3 is IMPORTANT) (Has USB 3.0 ports and PCI-Express 3.0) (100$)
HDD: 1TB Western Digital Blue (below 60$)
PSU (Power Supply Unit) : Thermaltake Toughpower 700W Modular (below 100$?)
Tower: Antec 900 (near 100$)
DVD: DVD DL+R (????)

TOTAL (my Rig) 825$~ (APROXIMATEDLY)

Hope that helps!,it's time to MOVE ON THE ACTUAL GEN!

That's really nice of you to have taken the time to tell me all this! Unfortunately, I don't have money to be spent on a new pc gear. But when it'll be the time, I surely will listen to your advise, thanks a lot.
