Hi, i have just purchased a game called "Counter-strike Source" on this program called Steam.
When i try to install it it sais "Your video drivers appear to be out of date and could cause problems if you choose to continue and run the game. We strongly recommend that you follow the link below and update your video drivers to the latest version available from your driver vendor."

Any help?


Windows Version:Windows xp
Description:Radeon 9250
Version:6.14.10.6614

Hi,

To update the driver, go to Device Manager > Display Adapters, right-click the Radeon entry and select Uninstall. Reboot into VGA mode, disable antivirus, install the new driver and reboot to complete.

From looking at the AMD website this is showing as the latest update available but was posted Nov. 15, 2006 and is also showing as version 6.11, so try the above and that should give you the latest update available.

To Open Device Manager
a. From the Start menu, select My Computer. Alternatively, double-click My Computer on the desktop.
b. Under "System Tasks", click View system information.
c. In the System Properties window, click the Hardware tab, and then click Device Manager.

Make sure your DirectX is up to date.

Download from Microsoft Here

Barring that, if the game/installation works you can continue with it. It's been reported that people get this error message but everything runs fine.

After the installation of DirectX you will need to do a restart.

Then try the installation of Counter-strike Source again.

Does the Counter-strike Source installation run at all?
What are the options available when this error message pops up? (ok cancel etc)

What are your systems spec's?
Eg. Processor Speed & Ram Size

DirectX 10.0 is correct

As i posted earlier, some user of this game have reported that they get this error message even tho everything is up to date and the installation + game runs fine.

As all you drivers are correct and up to date, then you needn't be worried about this message, just click ok and continue as normal.
