Have 2 good graphics cards, still won't boot.

Post by NinaMouse on Thu 15 Jan 2015, 13:11

When I try to run the game, an error message pops up that says there is a problem with the graphics cards. 

I have 2: ATI Radeon HD 4200 and ATI Radeon hd 5800, and I feel like that should be sufficient to run it. I know the 5800 isn't listed on the graphics card list, but I thought it was good enough to work?

Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!

Hi there,

2 different graphic card models in one system? Shocked
Try temporarily disabling one via the "Device Manager" and then test the game. If that didn't work, try disabling the other one instead and then testing the game.

I'm not too familiar with AMD/ATI, but isn't there something like the "Catalyst Control Center" (similar to the NVIDIA Control Panel for NIVDIA GPUs), where you can edit settings for your cards ?

Look if you can actually configure applications to use a certain graphics card. If the HD 5800 doesn't work, try choosing the other one. At least you can do that in NVIDIA.
