World of Warcraft video problem?

Hi,

When I double-click the World of Warcraft desktop icon, the screen turns black as if it will begin to run, but then it stops, and a pop-up that reads:

"Your 3D accelerator card is not supported by World of Warcraft. Please install a 3D accelerator card with dual-TMU support"

And to think I could just waltz right into playing WoW..Ha :whistling:


I'm just wondering what I need to do to fix this. Do I need to change something on my computer? Or do I need to buy or upgrade a video card or something? I really don't have any clue whatsoever.


EDIT::
I used the System Spec posted in the sticky, and I'm using NVIDIA GeForce2 GTS (HP). Not sure if that helps or not. I can post any of those specs. you need.


Thank you in advance!

have you played WOW before?

I you need to update your video card. You will get much better performance. Your video card just meets the minimum requirements. You could try updating your video drivers from nvidia.com.

i went to that site before and I did the "upgrade" or whatever..and it really didn't do anything, besides make my monitor 'click' whenever I alt+tab out of something like Starcraft.

No, I havnt played WoW yet. I might just buy a new computer with better specs than this one. It is like 5-6 years old. Wouldn't be worth buying a new gfx card for an old comp. Apparently the vid card i have now isnt supported by WoW.


I was just wondering if there was something else I could do instead of buying a new card. Thanks
