    Can't start game because of graphics card


    Hi guys,


    I want to play Warhammer Mark of Chaos on my Windows 10 laptop. But when I start the game, I get a notification that it won't start because of my graphics card. I can't imagine that my graphics card is not good enough because I bought my laptop about two years ago and the game is from 2008. Does anybody have any idea how I could work around this? (I have no idea about graphics cards and what is good or not) Your help would be very much appreciated!


    My card name: Intel(R) HD Graphics 530

    Graphics card minimum: 256 MB NVidea GeForce 6800 GS 256 MB Radeon X800

    Recommended graphics card: 256 MB NVidia 7800 ATI X1800 or greater

    :)

    graphics card problems

    Hi,

    Your computer makes a noise or beeps from your internal speaker because it failed to detect the graphics card. What we can suggest is for you to try cleaning your graphics card with a pencil eraser. Here are the steps below:

    • Turn your computer off.
    • Pull out your video/graphics card.
    • Rubbed the cold contacts with soft pencil eraser.
    • Connect your video/graphics card back to the computer.
    Kindly note that this is just a temporary fix. If the case still continues, I suggest that you contact your graphics card's manufacturer.

    Let us know how it goes.

    Hello Brian,

    I request you to try the following steps:

    Uninstall and Reinstall the Graphics Card Drivers.

    Step 1: Uninstall the Graphics Card
    Drivers


    • Right click on the Start menu.

    • Click on “Device Manager” from that list.

    • Search for the Graphics Card
      from the device list, right click on it and then select “Uninstall”. On the un-installation window, if you have an option: “Delete the driver software for this device” you may select that and then remove the corrupted drivers
      from the computer.

    • Follow the on-screen instructions to complete it and then restart the computer if prompted.
    After the restart, please go ahead with the next steps to install the latest drivers and check if that resolves the issue.

    Step 2: Go to the Computer or Graphics Card
    manufacturer’s website and search for the latest Windows 10 drivers available for the
    Graphics Card model and then install it by following the instructions given in the website.

    I hope this helps you. If you have any further query in future, feel free to contact us. We will be happy to help you.

    Thank you.
