Having problems with your Dell OptiPlex GX260 PC Desktop ?

Portal will not work on my XP computer, it just keeps on saying "must have a minimum of directx 8.0." I installed directx 9.0 and it still doesn't work.

Answers :

The reason why portal will not run on that system is the Video will not support the Game. If the system has Intel integrated video, then I can verify the Intel Video cannot support portal
\015\012If the system has an Expansion Video card, then that card also doesn't support the game. Most likely, then system is just too old to support Portal (It will not run on my Inspiron 700m but does run on my Inspiron 6400 and Dimension 8400, which both have good video cards.
