Help with Video Card
So, my brother, a friend and I just finished the NWN2 Original Campaign. All was working well with my bro's video card until we started MotB. All of a sudden, his comp shut down and it wouldn't play the game.
I thought his card was overheating, but that wasn't it.
He reinstalled new drivers and reinstalled the game, even went and downloaded a new game from Atari because his .CAB file was corrupt on his CD, or at least that's what it said when he tried to reinstall. His comp didn't shut down after that, but he couldn't load the game anymore.
Anyway, he is getting this message: "could not find any compatible Direct3D devices."
We tried everything we can think of. His card tested on DirectX 9 perfectly. All the NWN2 forums have latest posts from 2006, not very helpful.
When he tried to play NWN1, it wouldn't let him change any of the screen resolutions. It locked him out of it and made him play at the 800x600 default, but he could still play.
His video card is a ATI Radeon HD 4670.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
My ignorant guess is that your video card fried and the computer is using the Onboard Graphics Card now.
Yes, check the Video options and see what device is being used. I think it might be listed somewhere what is/not being used or available.
Yeah, that probably makes sense. I didn't think of that, obviously. We will check the Device Manager and video options and see what is being used. smacks himself
Nope, the computer recognizes the card and it passes diagnostics. The applications don't seem to recognize the card. When I open nwn config, it gives some crazy resolution like 934867938 x 324598734.
NWN2 won't even load.
So, the computer recognizes the card, but both NWNs won't recognize any hardware acceleration, do you think that might be a DirectX problem?
