walaikum salam

dear bhai,

The problem you are encountering is related to the AGP (Video controller) driver error, and these reasons can be valid in this case:

1 - your video card's driver is generic and thus supports no 3d.

2 - secondly, aap ye check karo that, you update Glide, and Open GL (which are graphics and 3d Accelerating and supporting games.

3 - whatever the gam3 yu are playing linux / windows operating systems has a common prob that new hardware is detected but it has generic drivers of os not the original optimized and recommended drivers from its own manufacturer/vendor.

so please search the internet with
