So I've used Muvizu on a Vista machine and it really really lags due to the fact I only have a Pentium T4200 processor.

So I installed it on a Dell PC with Win XP, a dual core processor with everything installed as required, and now this error shows up:



Most likely, my card needs an upgrade. What kind of XP compatible graphics card is recommended so I can keep this version of Muvizu from lagging or running slow?

Its gonna lag a lot on a dual core as well but that error is due to your graphics card. Any card I can think of would not work as dual cores are now very very old technology basically any card that you can find that will fit in the pc that has a shader 3.0 ability but quite honestly i have issues telling anyone to spend money on such old tech because basically its worthless anyhow.

I kinda would recommend getting a new pc myself

I'd upgrade my Vista machine if it was a tower rather than a laptop, so yeah, I'm at a loss until I can save up for a better machine.

For future reference, a rough guide to the bare minimum PC specs for running Muvizu:Play can be found here: http://www.muvizu.com/System-requirements

Any graphics card with Shader Model 3 (or better) should do the trick!

Ifr your laptop graphics card does not meet the spec requirement is there any emulation software out there that will work?

Hi aparsons,
Graphic Cards
I fitted an ATi Radeon HD5400 2GB card to my old Dell 4700 desktop and this board is shader 5 compatable. Runs well and cool even without a fan. The 2GB on board RAM seems to cope with Muvizu. They only cost about GB£30 as well. Been installed about a year now, no obvious problems.
