Recently I have set up FIFA 11 on my PC. I do not have a graphics card, but the motherboard is Intel G41 and I played FIFA 09 on this PC, two months ago. When I try to play the game, it shows me a E0001 error box. What could be the problem? My PC's configuration is:
Processor: 3.0GHz Core 2Duo E8400
Motherboard: Intel DG41
Ram: 2 GB
Now if I want to play FIFA, what do I do? I am a fan of FIFA. So it is a great shock for me.
This type of problem is common, while you play Fifa11. This problem occurs when you don’t have a graphics card. But as far as I know you can play Fifa11 in G41 motherboard because it has the capability to play it. This could mean you lack your hardware support.
Now my question is, did you install your motherboard graphics driver properly? If no, then go to Intel site and download the latest driver, for your motherboard or you may follow this link to download your graphics driver.
This will solve your problem. If your problem is not solved yet, you have to buy an external graphics card. If you want to buy one let me know your budget. I can give you some information as to what will best suit you.
You may also try to uninstall all drivers and install them again.
Every game you install on your computer has their specific system requirements. Not because the previous version worked on your computer, the new version will also work. It doesn’t work that way. Since FIFA 09 worked on your computer but not FIFA 11, I think the problem could be the video card.
Your computer’s specifications seem compatible with both FIFA games and I think it only fall short on the video card. Since you don’t have a dedicated video card and you’re only using the built-in video card in your motherboard, I think that’s the problem. With FIFA 09, it supports Windows XP Service Pack 2, Windows Vista, and Windows 7.
It requires 2.6 GHz or faster single core Intel Pentium 3 or equivalent AMD processor, 512 MB RAM, Microsoft DirectX 9.0c-compatible video card with 128 MB video RAM and Shader Model 2.0 support, sound card, 4.26 GB free space, and optical drive. These requirements seem to work with your computer which also means you probably have 128 MB video RAM in your built-in video card.
With FIFA 11, it supports Windows XP Service Pack 2, Windows Vista, and Windows 7 which are the same as in the previous version. It requires 1.8 GHz or faster Intel Core 2 Duo or equivalent AMD processor, 1 GB RAM, Microsoft DirectX 9.0c-compatible video card with 256 MB video RAM and Shader Model 3.0 support, sound card, and 6.5 GB free space.
Here, there is a difference in the video card requirement which now requires Shader Model 3.0 and 256 MB video RAM which are probably not available in your built-in video card. Try buying a dedicated video card with 256 MB video RAM or higher and it should fix the problem.
