No suitable graphic cards in my project

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

Hello Experts,

It seems I can’t proceed to launch my new game project running in XNA 4.0 framework using Visual Studio C# 2010.

Is there something wrong with my directX 9 version?

I had good laptop which is Fujitsu N3510 with supported Intel media graphic adapter and XP OS service pack 3.

How can resolve the issue?

Any help please!


Error display:



No suitable graphics card found.

Could not find a Direct3D device that supports the XNA Framework HiDef profile.

Verify that a suitable graphics device is installed.

Make sure the desktop is not locked, and that no other application is running in full screen mode.

Avoid running under Remote Desktop or as a Windows service.

Check display properties to make sure hardware acceleration is set to Full.

It seems that the video graphics drivers that you have installed do not support gaming, or may be if you play the game using them then they may not give you the right functionality or performance, and therefore you will need to update the drivers.

  • Go to My Computer and right click on it, but before you even start that you should make sure that your computer is connected to the internet.
  • Click on system properties, and then choose device manager in the window that will open.
  • In the next window, from the list of drivers, locate the graphics drivers and right click on them.
  • Choose update driver and them update them online.
  • Wait for the updating process to finish, the driver will be sought and installed.

You should also check the display resolutions and make sure that it is appropriate to support gaming.
