My system specs are:
pentium 4 3.06GHz, 1Gb ram, Nvidia Geforce 4 MX4000 128mb. 80gb ide hard disk.
My problem is, when i start nfs carbon i can't see anything, words are not clear they all look like long boxes. The cars cannot be seen either its just an outline filled with the colour white. I have never incountered this problem with the other nfs games, most wanted included, they all ran smoothly without any problems. Could you guys please help because reinstalling it didn't help no matter how many times i did it.:ohcrap: :smoke:
U gotta get a better GFX card ...
A. Do you have the latest Forceware version? (93.71)
B. Do you meet the minimum requirements? Only weak spot seems to be the GFX card...
I checked the minimum specs, and my system is way above those specs. they say that minimum requirement for graphic cards are nVidia GeForce 4 and above. My card is Geforce 4. I download the latest version of directx and latest driver updatebut still nothing. Maybe geforce4 MX4000 is not supported in this game.:ohcrap::smoke:
Right click My Computer, hit Properties, click the Hardware Tab, click Device Manager, double click Display Adapters, right click on your video card and press properties, then click the Driver tab. What does it say beside driver version?
I really don't understand this. I have never had a problem with any other games evwn gtr 2 , battlefront2 and San andreas.
Yeah, but sometimes the simplest way to get a game working is to update the
drivers. In fact, its likely the first thing in the game's troubleshooting
guide is "make sure you have the latest drivers".
So uninstall your Nvidia drivers and install the new ones...
Wait...do you have windows XP, and its definitely an nVidia card? I just dont want to be responsible for hurting your PC...
I'm quite an experienced user mate. don't worry. It is an nvidia card and
yes i'm running xp.
I tried updating the driver but it's not working .:smoke:
Well, updating dirvers won't solve ur problem actually i does sometime but as u u've got MX4000 then i must say u have to get better GFX card for running NFS carbon !
Alright, sorry. Good luck then...
the game say's geforce4 ti or better the mx 4000 isn't thats your problem had the same thing happen here too
I went shopping for graphic cards and came across three that are in my
Geforce nVidia fx5500 256mb
Geforce nVidia asus 5500 256 mb
ATI radeon 9550 256 mb
can any of these play nfs carbon? and which one is worth buying.:smoke:
What's your budget? There may be better ones out there...those are quite old and low end...
Well i don't live in the US so things are expensive in my country....
The ati radeon which is by far the most expensive is about my budget limit.
Like i said i only found three that are right. 256 mb is good enough right??
i mean right now i have a geforce 4 mx4000 128mb so these cards should be a major improvement right????
Are any of these cards capable of running carbon.
The more recent and powerful cards run into twice my budget and i don't wanna blow my christmas cash on a silly card to play games on.:smoke:
^Well, yes they all are capable of running NFS carbon but dun expect BEST graphics wid those GFX cards...Gud luck:thumbs:
my prob is that i installed the game on my bro laptop and its has all the
requirments and the display memory is 128 but when i run the game its says
that an error has occured and u kno the rest....send report or dont send
so i hope u guys can help me.
It should work on a laptop...Works on mine with pretty high settings.
