Video driver update

Well I dled world of warcraft but when I try opening it says : World of Warcraft was unable to start up 3D acceleration. Please make sure DirectX 9.0c is installed and your video drivers are up to date.


Well I downloaded DirectX but it still says the same thing. Now I need to know how to update my video driver, Thanks.

We need to know your card to help. Run GPU-Z. It will say which it is.

Yeah. Then open it after. It will say what card you have. Then you could tell us so we can direct you to the correct driver page.

Wow, that's a really old card from 2001. I'm not sure which driver would be applicable to that because the ATI/AMD Catalyst driver probably will not support that any longer. Most likely, an old version of a Vista driver for that card will work. I'm checkin around for ya. I'll post back if I come up with something.

Unfortunately, it seems that the RV 100 was not even supported in Vista judging by this old driver version:

ATi Radeon Beta Catalyst 4.6 download from Guru3D.com

So unless I'm wrong, there is no driver for your card. Others will see this and comment if they know anything else, I'm sure.

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
