Windows 7: Video driver update

I'd say that your system doesn't meet the minimum requirements as you only have DX6 & you need DX9.0c & your graphics processing chip doesn't meet them either... Sorry

Minimum System Requirements

Windows® System XP/XP64/Vista/Vista64 OS:

- Intel Pentium 4 1.3 GHz or AMD Athlon XP 1500+
- 512 MB or more of RAM (Vista requires 1024 MB or more of RAM)
- 3D graphics processor with Hardware Transform and Lighting with 32 MB VRAM, such as an ATI Radeon 7200 or NVIDIA GeForce 2 class card or better
- DirectX® 9.0c (included) and latest video drivers
- 15.0 GB available HD space
- 4 x CD-ROM drive
- Broadband Internet connection
- For voice chat, an SSE enabled CPU is required.

If I were you I'd run the DirectX End-User Runtime Web Installer & not the stand alone redistrib installer.

This will install everything that's required for your particular chip & install it to where it needs to go without your interaction needed.

This is what I used & after the installation all my games played just fine.

Best way to update video driver?
I am about to upgrade my video card, replace nVidia with ATI. What's the best sequence for swapping the drivers? Should I try to remove the nVidia drivers before installing the ATI drivers? Or remove them after installing ATI drivers? Or? Thanks. Guy
