After installing BioShock game and tried to play I have this error. I have checked online if my video card is compatible with Direct 10 or above and it is. I have installed DirectX 11 and the game still don’t want to work. Does anyone have an idea why this game is not working ? How can I fix the compatibility between this game and video card ?
BioShock Infinite requires that your graphics hardware be compatible with DirectX 10 or DirectX 11, and have the DirectX 11 runtime installed.
BioShock Infinite requires DirectX 11 runtime installed
I was surprised in what I saw when I checked the game’s requirements. My first impression on the error is it’s compatibility with your machine because the error is associated to DirectX and has also mentioned about a possible problem in your video card. If you checked your hardware and you verify that your graphics adapter is fully supported, then how come the game is throwing an error about it?
After learning about the game’s specifications, I learned that it has very demanding requirements for just a game. For average users who have average hardware, this game is not recommended for you. BioShock Infinite supports Windows Vista Service Pack 2 32-bit and Windows 7 Service Pack 1 64-bit. To run the game at a minimum level, your processor should be at least Intel Core 2 Duo 2.4 GHz or AMD Athlon X2 2.7 GHz.
If you want the best performance for the game, the recommended is any Quad Core processor. This is really fast. The minimum RAM for the game is 2 GB. For the video card, your device should have a minimum of 512 MB video RAM but the recommended is 1 GB. For the hard drive, BioShock Infinite will consume around 20 to 30 GB of free space and that’s a huge amount for just a game.
You should meet all these requirements to be able to play the game. Regarding your video card, I need you need to check it again. If it doesn’t have the minimum 512 MB RAM, you will surely have a problem. And by the way, the 512 MB video RAM is different from your physical RAM. The video card has a separate RAM installed on it and this is different from the actual RAM that your computer has.
