Hey everyone, just wondering if somebody could help me with a graphics problem.
I got a demo disc (FIFA 2003 Football) and I've instaled it successfully but when I try to play the game it comes p with the message 'FIFA 2003 needs hardware graphics acceleration'.
What do I do now?
Any help much appreciated!!

Don't know to be honest
The computer that I am using isn't mine so I don't realy know much about it.
I have since instaled the game on my brothers computer and it worked fine. I'm guessing his computer is better equipt.
Thanx for your input though.

To find out some of that information, simply right click on the mY computer Icon on the desktop and select properties. That will tell you your OS Operating System (windows 98,95,me,2000, or XP), your RAM (random Access Memory), and your Processor (CPU, usually Pentium, Celeron, AMD Atlon or Duron) etc..
To find out your Video card info, (graphics Processor type) right click the desktop, again select properties, then click the display tab, the click advanced. There you will most likely see a tab called ADAPTER. That will identify your Video card.
Hope that helps you in the future. Glad to see you got it working. and Welcome to Techzonez.
