Preferred Solution: hat is pixel shader and can we increase pixel shader virtually

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: hat is pixel shader and can we increase pixel shader virtually

Pixel shading is what makes computer graphics seem so real. It works on a pixel by pixel basis, determining the lighting, shading, and color of each pixel - bringing infinite possibilities.

If I'm correct, anti-aliasing, anisotropic filtering, etc will affect pixel shading. For ATI, this can be done through Catalyst. NVidia settings should do the same.

Not sure what you mean by virtually...

Im looking for a video card, and since im AGP, the only way for me to go (at the area im looking for) is either a x1600pro or a x850xt

But x1600pro has PS3
and x850xt has ps2.
What are the main differences between them, and what are some games that wont work period without ps3.

I intend to play more, but right now i have, Doom 3, Quake 4, HL2, CS:S, Colin Mcrae rally 2005, call of duty 2, nfs:mw

I know those all work with PS2 as my dad has a x600 on his laptop.

So i ask again, whats the main difference, and what games right now wont work period without it, or will most games work, but only at a ps2 level

Sorry if this is the wrong place to post, kind of new here...Anyway I was thinking of buying GH3 for PC but it says that it recommends Pixel Shader 4.0.
I have an ATI Radeon HD 3650 that supports it, but idk how to get it. I have read somewhere that you have to have Windows Vista (I have XP) but I don't know. I have DX10 for XP and it works fine so I am sure there is a way to get Pixel Shader 4.0 somehow? Well thanks for the help.

Pixel Shader 4.0 (actually 4.1) is installed with your video card drivers. If you got your Catalyst drivers from AMD (formally ATI)'s website, you should have it already.

You cant upgrade a pixel shader, that's a process that's in your video card. And remember that the recommended specs for a game is to run it on low details. At minimum in most cases. We also need to know your pc specs?

i wouldnt go for a graphics card, that is below the ATI Radeon 9600 or Nvidia 6200 otherwise you will have an insano pants card for games like that... ideally i would go for a ATI 9800 or Nvidia 6600... but if money is a lil bit tight then 9600XT 256Mb. thats my opinion.

or if money isnt really a prob then X800/6800 of some form lol.

I picked up Fable: The Lost Chapters today and have come to the sad realization that my graphics card is not compatible to a degree. My problem is that the ground textures will not load, it is smooth and gray and water is yellow, which I assume stems from the shadow option in the overall video options. After having found that the video card was not compatible (a VIA SG3 card and an Intel 845G) I came here in hopes that someone would know of a possible work around or perhaps some sort of emulator that would help fix the problem. I am hoping that it is nothing more than a simple download patch or "codex" of sorts but I realize that hope is a bit far fetched...

Hello everyone.

I recently bought Black & White 2, a somewhat outdated game. I install the game, go to run it, and I get an error message saying my video card isn't compatible with pixel shader 1.1 . I'm currently using an nvidia geforce4 mx420 card, my OS is windows xp, i've got 1024 RAM and a pent 4 processor.

I consulted the readme file, which directed me to update the driver. I've spent the last hour or so looking for the correct driver download, and for the life of me I can't find it.

Is there anything else I can do to get this game running? And if not, what are some good medium-range cards I should look into?

P.S. I'm aware people usually ask for information about the motherboard and such, but I'm not entirely computer literate and don't know how to find this info.

Thanks for your help and patience.

Yes, but it's dirt slow, and it won't be in a way that'll enable you to play games with it...

* Shaders architecture with diffuse and specular lighting parameters + environment reflection
* All lighting components are considering the normal map
* Specular lighting can be tuned depending on material properties (glossiness and strength)
* Procedural animated texturing is available on all shader components (diffuse, normal map, specular mask, environment map)
* Available for transparent materials
* Real time reflection materials on flat surfaces
* Complex character lighting with average compensation and translucency
* Filtered soft shadow maps with bleeding removal
* High resolution and no compression on character normal maps info

Some newer games are requiring the shader model, and it seems as though your card may not support it. The shader model is something similar to T&L; if your graphics card doesn't have it, the game won't work.

And No-one "has it". It's just a type of code that is being written into games, and if your video card supports it, you'll see the results in game.

Hope this helped

So I am obtaining Bioshock for my pc. It's made out to be the best FPS to date, and I've done some reading, and behold, It uses a shader 3 and my graphics ( ATI Radeon 9600 x1050 ) only has shader 2. They say to delete 2 shader cashe files and it should fix the problem, but I have the demo, and now all it does is crash before I can even check to see if the shader fix worked. Please tell me there is something I can do OTHER than go out and buy a new Graphics Card.

Hi , I just found out my pc takes a PCI - E X16 vid card now i want one with a graphic shader 2.0 or higher. I have seen this one on and dont know if it has a 2.0 shader.

I just recently played splinter cell chaos theory on PC, i have a 6800 GT overclocked to 420/1130 and when i have the game playing at shader 3.0 it is slow as hell and i am running this at 1024*768. I barely get 35 FPS, this also happened when i was playin chronicles of riddick which also supports shader 3.0 and my fps was even worse. I dont know if its my pc, software or the card. But if it is the card i dont get why nvidia will put the support for a technology that their current generation of video cards can not handle. :wave:

A:Shader 3.0 Support in Nvidia Cards.

it is not necessarily an issue with the shader model 3.0,do you have anything running in the background,do you have aa or af on?also it doesnt have to be the video cards fault for low fps count,it might be becuase of a weak or an unmatched processor to keep up or slower ram.shader model 3.0 is relatively new technology the fault doesnt have to be in the hardware(gpu) but might be in the software(game)as well.

Hi: I recently received a tiny digital camera as a gift with a program I bought. It takes fairly decent pictures in good light conditions but when I attempt to ehnance pictures with my PhotoShop Elements 4 program, the image looks OK in the computer----but when I print it out the pixels are very large. This is only a 100K camera so little more than a toy but it would be nice to carry in my pocket for random shots. Is there any way I can improve the print quality? Many thanks.

A:Pixel problem

I would imagine that you are trying to print the images at a larger scale than the pixel dimensions and resolution.

You could try resampling the image - but the smaller an image is to start off with, the less information there is to work with - or just print the images smaller!

Hello and Happy New Year.

This only started after installing Windows 7.

I get wierd pixel patterns flashing on my screen. They only shows up on dark surfaces (ie when the screen behind it is dark). It started with one pixel flashing. Then two, then more until now when it has become very difficult to concentrate for the mini-light-show.

It is not my monitor (tried on my Xbox and was fine). I thought that it might be my graphics card but I tried on my other and it does a similar thing (but not totally the same).

Drivers for my graphics cards and monitor are up to date.

Thanks in advance.

First let me start by saying how I came about this pixel question I am trying to set up a home theatre system on a very small budget For my speaker system I ve already decided to get an Onkyo surround sound HT-S HTIB refurbished for when using a discount promo code To complete my set up I also wanted to get an HDTV When trying to decide how much I was willing to spend a brilliant idea Pixel Question!!! popped into my head I already have an old Pentium computer with s-video input and a very nice CRT monitor From my understanding the only difference between an HDTV and a regular TV was that an HDTV has a much higher resolution with pixels around times the amount of a normal TV My max resolution on my monitor is x for a total of pixels I m not an expert in math but Pixel Question!!! it seemed that logically if I had an image on my computer monitor at it s highest possible resolution it would look better than if it were displayed an HDTV I ve watched TV on my monitor before with the signal going through my computer and it did in fact look significantly better than on my TV Though there were a few things that made me doubt my logic that the picture would look better on my monitor than on an HDTV Firstly I thought shows had to be specifically broadcasted for HDTV to be viewed at that high resolution If it worked like how I thought my computer worked how come it too wouldn t be able to convert the signal from low resolution to high resolution How come a digital camera with mega pixels can only print a picture that has mega-pixels if my computer can convert that TV signal to such a high resolution Also when viewing media at full screen when my monitor was set at x and x I couldn t notice a difference in quality This is when I came to the realization that when I increase the resolution I m just spreading across how many pixels one color is displayed and not giving the image any more detail Is that correct If so then the only reason for the difference in quality that I saw was be because I was using an s-video connection instead of a composite connection Can it also be that my higher quality monitor has more displayable colors Either way I was very satisfied with the conclusion I came up with and everything seemed to make sense until another thought popped into my mind If I were watching a video made for x resolution and my monitor was displaying x Pixel Question!!! resolution the video would take up half the screen If I Pixel Question!!! were then to enlarge that video to full screen the quality of the video would be noticeably worse However if I would change my monitor s resolution to x and still watch that same video in full screen the video would not look any worse than if I were watching it in full screen at x resolution How come the difference in quality from watching the video at its native resolution x to x is worse but there is no difference in quality from watching a video at x to x The only thing that I can think of is that when you hit full screen the first increase stretches the pixels differently then the second increase from x to x But if the image looses quality why would you want to stretch the pixels using the first method in the first place Also the reason I used an example that first stretched the video by is that on media players it always has the option for a increase or to have it at full screen I ve never seen a media player that allowed you to stretch a video by Is this because one can t stretch this particular way more than Though I still can t figure out why one would want to I bet if I would give it some more thought and observation I would be able to figure this out but I thought I would pose that question to the experts I hope experts are reading this The next thing I was wondering is if I got an HD-Receiver that was broadcasting a video meant for HDTV would I still be able to use my monitor for viewing and would it look better or worse than if I used an HDTV and if so by how much I just don t see the need ...

I can always find it right away and it bothers me, my problem is its stuck in red and from what I read it has a chance to be unstuck with a program like jscreen but my problem is its up on my laptop where my url bar is so therefor the program doesnt reach it.

Dead pixels are usually black. No fix for these.
Stuck are usually "stuck" on a color. So there may be a good chance of fixing it.

I had a monitor a while back with a stuck pixel but I never had any luck getting it working again. its worth a try.

Have a look at this video that explains a bit about alternate different methods you can try. (May come in handy if the software method fails)

I have recently bought a hp w2207 monitor and think its great. My video card is a Nvidia 8500 gt. I was having no problems until my computer started acting up. I had to reformat my hard drive. After getting everything back on things seemed to be fine. about a week later I started to notice weird spots of colors. For example, on my firefox under the search bar at the top there are short blue vertical lines. Another example is playing World of warcraft I am getting red dots everywhere. some steady and some flickering. It kind of seems like darker colors cause the red dots, cause on the internet I get some pictures with the red dots.
I tried updating the video card drivers. I am out of ideas on how to fix this. Or maybe my video card is dieing. But I have had it less then a year.

A:pixel problems

I've run into this problem before if the correct drivers were not installed.

If you go into the Control Panel-->System and click on Monitor, is there a yellow box with an exclamtion point?

Try clicking on properties for your modem and resetting the driver.

I read about this in a computer magazine this week, tried the test on our LCDs and had a good report. You may want to try it.
Hope your results are also good.

A:LCD Pixel Checker

I've always done this with a graphics application and filling the screen with a single color. Then you preview full screen, and you have a dead pixel checker.

This is probably a bit more convenient, since you don't have to create the check screens...

hello, i have recently noticed on my laptop as i clean it that i may have a dead pixel. My Desktop background is a Intel xeon background and is mostly black, here i can see that near the top i have a white pixel. Ii have tried changing my wallpapers, most of them are black and i keep seeing this white pixel. I can see it right now as i have google chrome and have a black theme on and above the address bar i can see it. I have done an online test and i am not sure what i am meant to be doing however the instructions were clear. So what do you think is wrong
