    hi i just bought a game called devil may cry 3 special edition for the pc..my system meets all of its requirements when i installed and tried to play the game and i got into battle i ony see a black screen the red eyes of the monsters and what i think is the sword effect..i researched in the internet about the problem and i found out that i need some sort of model shader or pixel shader, and my video card that is geforce4 mx4000 doesnt support it..question is: is there any way i can do about it? so ill be able to play my game??. like did nvidia released a software or a latest driver so pixel shader will be available in my card?

    The only way to update pixel shaders 2.0 or 3.0 is to get a new video card.

    As the other guy said, you need a new card, the one you've got is seriously old and pixel shader 2 or shader model 3 etc is a hardware issue - no amount of software updates is going to make your card support it. A radeon x1650/nvidia 7600 would be fine and will cost very little. I'm 99.9% certain it'll be the AGP version you'll need but make sure you check. Also check your power supply is up to the task as I'm guessing that'll be too small for a proper upgrade in which case you might want to look on ebay for a radeon 9600XT or something like that which doesn't need an extra power cable to run it.
