Vid card not recognized problem

Recommended Posts

Just went to start up FSX and I got a error message at the load screen that says " this graphics card does not meet minimum requirments for shader support. You need at least a GeForce 3 or Radeon 8600 FSX will now close. I have a GF 8800GT and a GF7600 GTS with the 169.25 driver. I have reinstalled the driver and still no luck. Before I do the dreaded reinstall any ideas?

What does DXDiag say about your video setup?Did you try disabling/removing the 7600?

DXDiag reports no problems with both vid cards. No problems with other sims also.I pulled the 7600 and FSX started up. Here is the funny part. Since I put in the second card and second monitor FSX has been runnig for a week with no problems. All of a sudden this shows up. The only thing I installed since addding the 7600 is the PMDG 747. The PMDG 747 has not had a problem since intall either.

Phil,Any reason why FSX would suddenly have a problem with the second Vid Card? I took FSX out of DX-10 preview when I put the 7600 in since it's not a DX-10 card. The 7600 is a card that meets FSX minimums. I figured having the second card would allow the main card to drive FSX without sapping resources. I have both monitors running off the 8800GT right now. Also any plans for making FSX SLi compatable?
