Graphics card- Hardware acceleration issue.

    How do I configure my graphics card?
    I built this system myself (beginner-geek) and I can't seem to get games to
    work. Most of my WIN98 games didn't work so I thought it was an XP thing.
    I've downloaded some XP compatible game demos that support my graphics card
    and they don't work either. I was somewhat stumped until I tried Fifa 2005 -
    "Fifa 2005 requires hardware graphics acceleration".
    Any tips?


    Thanks in advance,
    -Brian

    Have you installed the motherboard drivers???
    Have you installed the graphics card drivers.

    Depends on the card, how old, how much video DRAM, etc. Many games require
    a graphics accelerator card like a GeForce or nVidia.
