Hardware Acceleration Is Either Disabled Or Not Supported
Aug 20, 2009
When i open window 7 games it shows the message "hardware acceleration is either disabled or not supported by your video card driver,which could slow game performance.make sure you have the latest video card driver installed and that hardware acceleration is turned on."
in my device manager under sound,video and game controllers it shows unsupported standard game port. please help me to fix this problem.
After reinstalling Windows 7, I've never been able to play a single video game on my computer (really defeating the purpose of an Alienware). When I try to run Unreal Tournament 2004, the error message reads CRITICAL ERROR: Please enable Direct3D acceleration. You can do this by starting dxdiag and enabling it in Display tab after installing DirectX 8.1b (or later) and latest drivers. Woohoo. So I went to dxdiag, and it says that DirectDraw Acce;, Direct3D Accel, and AGP Texture Accel are all disabled. I went to see what the graphics card is, because I forget...and Windows can't even tell me what card it is. I have no clue. Also, I can't even use the ethernet port on the computer to hard wire a internet connection; I have to use my wireless usb plug in from Netgear.
I own a Dell Inspiron N5010(service code 8ypspp1). I installed all drivers, but when i enter lets say solitaire it says that either hardware acceleration is disabled either my video card doesn't support it. I checked if h.acceleration was turned on and it was. My graphics card apears to be : Standard VGA Graphics Adaptor. I installed java , flash , directx...This happened after i reinstalled windows and format.
I have been considering jumping to this OS on my new box I am building but one thing that is holding me back is the fact that I have yet to find a concrete way to remove mouse acceleration within the OS at the system level. Has anyone successfully removed the acceleration without using drivers or special mouse software?
When I go to dxdiag, on the display tab, it says direct 3D acceleratoin: Not available. And I need to enable it for a game.Another weird thing that might have something to do wiht the problem: In the device manager, when I open Display adapters section, there is one item called "Standard VGA graphics adapter", and my graphics card is ATI Radeon Mobility 5650, which is not shown there.
I have onbored Intel GMA X4500HD which intel claims has hardware acceleration for HD movie playback.
I could never get this to work properly with vista even with the power dvd HD codec installed?
I also tried all the dodgy codec packs available (which in my experience courses more harm than good) in my quest for low cpu usage during 1080p or just any HD playback in general really. And although my monitor isn't even a HD monitor it's still above standard definition & I just like to know things are working as there advertised I guess? Plus I plan to get a HD monitor when my finances permit me to?
I also had this problem with my old pc with an ati card installed aswell.
Anyways I installed windows 7 & hardware acceleration works right out of the box, literally. No codecs & no messing about it just works as advertised. The codecs are there already & work as they should do for once. My cpu usage is down from 30/70% to 0/20% max now. It was 70/100% without any codecs & 30/70 was the best I could get with vista.
With Windows 7 Microsoft has really hit the nail on the head for me, so to speak. Bootup times are so fast & so far I haven't had to install a single codec for once.
It's like a refined vista with all the same features plus a few more just for good measure.
I have gone into Appearance and Personalisation, then clicked Adjust Screen Resolution, then Advanced Settings, I click Troubleshoot but the Change Settings button is greyed out as I can't click it, with a little administrator shield next to it. I am the only user and the admin on this computer
I just upgraded to Windows 7 Ultimate from XP. When I go to play Chess Titans, or any other OEM game on my computer, it gives me the following message:
"Hardware acceleration is either disabled or not supported by your video card driver,which could slow game performance. Make sure you have the latest video card driver installed and that hardware acceleration is turned on"
How do I get to the setting on my video card to fix this? It says that all my drivers are installed correctly and are working fine. This is on a friends computer and i am stumped.
Does anyone know of anything that will fully disable mouse acceleration in W7? Turning the "precision" off in CPanel, and setting up Mouse keys to change the accelerate rates does not fully disable acceleration in all games. I have a g5 mouse and have tried using set-point to override the O/S, but that still does not fully disable it in all games.
I have an ATi Radeon 2600XT and I am running Windows 7 Ultimate Edition 64 bit.
When I go to hardware acceleration (Display > Resolution > Advanced - not sure of the exact steps but been there several times), the "Troubleshoot" button, from where the hardware acceleration settings can be modified, is greyed out.
This is a common problem it seems, but I cannot solve this. I am running the latest CCC drivers from ATi.
To make things even more confusing, I used to run VMWare Workstation 6.5 and Windows Server 2008 R2. I could happily adjust the hardware acceleration setttings (had not updated the ATi drivers but VMWare uses its own display drivers). I then got VMWare Workstation 7.0 and I could not adjust hardware acceleration.
I am still trying to disable hardware acceleration fully on my Gateway NV52 with the ATi Radeon card. It seems to escape me on Windows 7 but I have only found directions on Vista so any help would be greatly appreciated.
I get a constant buzzing sound, especially when I play WOW. I was told to change my sound acceleration to standard, or even turn it off completely, to eliminate the buzzing. I can't seem to figure out how to edit it though, since when I run the dxdiag there is no slider that comes up to adjust anything.
i just installed markc mouse acceleration removal, But i see problems in the mouse movement recorder, the markc is going to get 1-1 like but i get past it somtimes i post screenshot here. I followed the instruction tryed to restart my pc, Switch port on my mouse and everything, I really need markc mouse fix for BF3,Cs 1.6, and other games,URL ,Here is the picture. Sorry for not inserting the image
I just upgraded my computer to windows 7 and Everytime I click on a games as simple as solitaire I get the error message Hardware acceleration is either diabled or not supported by your video card driver make sure you have the latest video card driver installed and that the hardware acceleration is turned on. how to turn on Hardware Acceleration much less know what it means lol
I need to change the hardware acceleration settings, but when I go to advanced display settings trouble shoot tab the button is shaded grey and unclickable. I've updated to the latest driver and cannot find the settings in the Nvidia Control Panel to change the hardware acceleration.
