GFX Error after Acceleration DVD Install

Hi Guys,

I've had the FSX Gold Edition DVD's for a while now, and I've played the normal delux version for the last 3 years on my HP nx7400 without problems now. My problem now is that my HP uses a shared gfx card and doesnt have a dedicated card, so when I try and install the Acceleration DVD and run fsx, I get an error message saying that my gfx card isnt sufficient.

I love downloading new aircraft and missions, but some of them require the acceleration pack to be installed.

My question to anyone now is, can I get around this issue at all?  Im flying with the gfx between low and med at the moment and dont have any performance issue's whilst flying. Is there anything I am able to do as I would love to get past this point!! I've read up that I can install little fixes here and there for the missions and aircraft, but im hoping there is a better solution.

Thanks guys....

I'd say your graphics card alone is the bottleneck, just looked at specs and it said only 224Mb graphics card?

It also said 120Gb is largest hard drive it will take?

My small ish install is nearly 20GB so it's a large chunk of your harddrive if on the internal hdd.

Howsit Steve,

Yeah, I def know my graphics card is the problem. Its only a shared memory card and not dedicated, which is my issue as the Acceleration pack seems to want a dedicated card. I've done some upgrades on my laptop where I've put in a 320GB 7200RPM HD, and Im running 3GB RAMM, but the problem still persists.

Just wondering if there is anyway to get around this by editing the config files etc....
