graphic adapter error occured while drawing a frame error message when trying to play Family Feud 2010
Posted on 2011-02-10
I was able to successfully install Family Feud 2010 onto my computer tonight but ran into an error message when attempting to play it. The error message reads as follows: A graphic adapter error occured while drawing a frame. This might happen if your system has not enough video memory (VRAM) to draw a frame or if your driver is out of date. Please verify with your system vendor to obtain the latest generation of drivers for your computer. And, underneath that mesage is another error message indicating the following: Could not create DX9 device! I:\projects\gamefabric\basepy\library\source\modules\FGraphDXCommon-cpp.hpp (1268)
WIth respect to technical specs of this system, it is a Compaq Deskpro EN running Windows XP Professional with SP2. It has an Intel PIII chip running at 996MHz and has 512MB of RAM. The onboard video card is an Intel (R) 82815 Graphics Controller. I have thought about installing DirectX to correct the problem, but, I have not done that yet. This system is low with regards to system memory too so that could be a problem. I know when a pc uses onboard video, it will "borrow" from the system memory what it needs.
At any rate, any shared thoughts or ideas on what direction I will need to go here will be appreciated.
