You need to provide a lot more information - Desktop? Laptop? Make and model? Processor? Graphics on board or add on card?
Also, XP support will be limited.
Sorry, yes. It is an Optiplex 170L. That's a Desktop. Comes with a 2GHz Intel P4. Has onboard graphics.
Has PCI slots only. I'll buy a PCI card maybe if I can get clues as to a useful one. I have an ATI7000 I've been told isn't worth putting in.
Your graphics: Intel 82865G Graphics Controller
You can get an XP driver from DELL: Product Support | Dell US
Thanks for that. Didn't help. That's the driver we already have. Looks like the correct answer is There's No Help Out There.
I've sent for a PCI card. A 5450. That might help.
Thanks for trying.
No, there is an answer: Your 82865G supports DirectX 8. Look at this link under older graphics products, the last entry:
If you want more current features, you need a different graphics controller.
Also, XP has been dead for more than two years now. Time to move on - in my opinion.
That's not an answer.
The question was is there any help?
The context requiring help was a computer running DX9 and the latest available driver is still not good enough for Roblox. So it is actually 'supporting' DX9 right now.
The 'help' required is an improvement on that situation.
There is no help for that. Another computer doesn't qualify as 'help'. That's not an improvement in the context of that computer.
I'll put a card in and see what that does. If that fixes it then that's the answer. If it doesn't then it's as I said: no help. Correct answer is: no help.
I see you seem to have marked your own answer as 'correct answer'. A little arrogant, I think?
And your remark about moving on is a little impertinent, too. You have no knowledge of the situation in our household, how many computers we run, what systems run on them, what we do with them, what we have them for. Whether or not we have 'moved on' is beyond your orbit and not pertinent to the question.
XP is no longer supported. Your graphics controller is no longer supported.
