Hello and welcome to TSF

click on start button
in the search area write: dxdiag
and press Enter
on the bottom there is "Save All Information"
press it and save it as a txt file and then attach the file here
to attach a file press on the "attach button" besides the smiley face
this is the dxdiag file you asked for..please help..thnkyu sooooooooooo much in advance for replying..:)


Ok it appears that your problem is that your using on board graphics which typically isn't enough to play games. You should look into purchasing a new graphics card. Let us know how much your budget is and we can give you a list of good graphics cards for your price range.
You are using a Intel G31/G33 integrated graphics solution. Sadly there is no way to break the limitations of this chipset. The only thing I can suggest is that you buy a new PSU (power supply unit) to power a new graphics card with it.

Do you have a budget in mind? $215 will do decently for you. I'm just not sure if you live in the US. If you have a store that has a website that you use then I can pick parts for you. Otherwise I'll just use for now

Medal of Honor: Allied Assault Spearhead

Hardware Requirements
Minimum System Requirements
System: PII 450 or equivalent
Video Memory: 16 MB VRAM
Hard Drive Space: 800 MB
Mouse: Yes
DirectX: DirectX v8.0
So I'm thinking that you'll probably be able to play games maybe up til 2003 at least.Here's Pacific assault, I think its playable too.

System requirements

Windows 2000/XP, Pentium 4 1.5 GHz, 512 MB RAM, graphics card with 64 MB memory, DirectX 8.1 and Transform and Lightning capabilities, 4 GB hard disk space.

A lot of these games were made for the console and never released for the PC or I can't find a minimum specs page for some. I'm semi confident you could play most of them for now.

A lot of games require Transform and Lighting which I am happy to say so does your Intel integrated graphics support too.
The following Intel® integrated graphics controllers support hardware Transform and Lighting (T&L):

The integrated graphics controller of the Intel® G35, G41, G43, G45, G965, GL40, GL960, GM45, GM965, and GS45 Express Chipsets
Intel® HD Graphics

All other Intel® graphics products do not have hardware support for T&L. In most games, transform and lighting calculations can be performed on the processor with acceptable performance. A small number of games that specifically check for hardware T&L support may fail to run.
