Recommended Posts

Guest Gringo

My son has an old (2 years) Allienware Laptop (no Hyper thread or USB 2).It runs Win XP Professional. It is A P4 2,4 MHZ with a 40 Mega HD and 512 Ram.The Card is an old ATI 7500 probably 64 on board. The Manual says it is DirectX 8 ready but nothing elseIf he installs DirectX 9b will he have problem because of the Graphics card?Hope you can HELP ME.Edmundo Cardenas

Don't know if this helps, but I am running a Radeon 7200 64 mb card on my internet/design PC, with FS9 installed and DX9a and it runs great. If you are using XP, just set a restore point before installation.Regards, MichaelKDFWhttp://mysite.verizon.net/res052cd/mybannercva1.jpgCalVirAir International VAwww.calvirair.comCougar Mountain Helicopters & Aviationwww.cgrmtnhelos.com

Edmundo - No, there will not be a problem. The card is not able to use any of the new features of DX9 but it will still work just fine.Doug
