Minimum system requirement not met

I use a computer that's now over 7 years old, a P4 3Ghz, XP 32 bit, 2.5 Gig of RAM, nVidia 8400 GS graphics card with 512 MB, and this game (and other modern graphic intensive games) run fine on it. So, your computer should have no problems running it I would think.

However, here's a couple of suggestions you might try that could help:

* Does the game launch at all? If so, from the in-game menu options, try adjusting some of the graphic sound settings to see if it makes any difference.

* Go into the folder where you have The Witcher installed, and probably within the system folder you'll find the main game executable (exe) files, right click on the exe files, Properties, compatibility, and perhaps select something such as one of the XP modes. Also be sure the Steam client and the game's exe files are set to run as Administrator which you can do in a similar way.

* Be sure to close or disable other background programs (such as anti-virus, messengers, etc. ) before launching the game as other programs might cause conflicts or hurt performance.

* Disable the Steam overlay for this game as it has been known to cause some problems with The Witcher. From your games Library, right-click on The Witcher, Properties, un-check the Enable Steam community in-game option.

* If you're not able to launch the game at all to adjust some of the settings, then there's a possible work-around for how you may be able to do it. See one of my previous posts for more info on this: 4#post16111344

Hopefully something of that will be of some help.

Bummer. So did you try the last suggestion that was on the link I posted? Still no luck?

A couple of other things that come to mind; You mentioned you updated your drivers, which I'm assuming graphic drivers as well. a mistake that a lot of people make is they don't un-install currently installed drivers before installing a different version. If you just install a newer version over-top of a current driver installation, there is sometimes a chance that there is something left over from the previous version that can conflict with the newer version you try installing. Some people also use a driver-cleaner utility to help ensure that all files associated with a current driver installation is completely removed.

A free utility I use to help me with this when I decide to upgrade my graphic drivers is Driver Cleaner Pro. There's still freeware versions of it that you can get, such as at: leaner_pro.cfm
There's a couple of misleading links (advertisements) on that page, but look for the Download. Filesize 2.69 MB link next to a little disk-icon picture towards the top portion of that page.
This utility should work for both nVidia and ATI drivers.

Once fully cleaning off the drivers installation, then try installing a recent version again and see if it helps. Remember to reboot the computer after removing the drivers, and reboot again after installing new drivers.

I noticed you have an ATI card, so perhaps there's also some tweaks or settings you could do from the ATI Tray / Tools that could help to get this game running as well (perhaps turn of Adaptive Anti-Aliasing, as I seem to recall having that feature on can cause some games not to work properly).

If it's still not working, I may have a couple more suggestions up my sleeve. Good luck!

Found some info that may help to bypass the Minimum System Requirements check:

Go to your installation directory (..\The Witcher\System\) in there you have the file Witcher.exe, right click and create a shortcut.

Put the short cut on your desktop.

Right click on the shortcut, go to properties, Change the target to have the switch like this

Or, alternatively, you may be able to do via Steam client (not sure though) by right-clicking The Witcher from your games list, Properties, Set Launch Options, then add the: -dontForceMinReqs command there.

Need help? Contact the Chromecast Support Team for assistance.

Minimum system requirements

Google Cast is available on all platforms, including Chrome OS, Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux. There are no specific hardware requirements in order to install or use the Google Cast extension.

However, casting video from a tab of your Chrome browser has specific requirements depending on your chosen quality settings. Systems that do not meet these minimum requirements will be limited to projecting web pages, images and slideshows, and will not work well for video content. A strong Wi-Fi connection both on Chromecast and your computer is also required for good performance.

The minimum system requirements for Casting from Chrome differ from the minimum system requirements to set up your Chromecast.

2nd-generation Core i5 (2GHz+), 3rd/4th-generation Core i5 processor, or equivalent;

Windows 7 or later

Core i3 or equivalent

Windows Vista or later

Macbook Pro or newer, Macbook Air or newer;

OS X 10.9 or above

Macbook Pro 2010, Macbook Air ;

OS X 10.9 or above

All models and later, Haswell-based models, and Samsung Chromebook 2

Results will vary depending on OS distribution, driver support, and desktop environment

FIX: The Witcher Minimum system requirements not met.

In this video you will see how to properly update your Intel Graphics driver. A lot of users are not able to update their driver because they get an error message telling them that their operating system is not supported, when actually it is.

The reason why this is happening is because a custom driver, provided by their computer manufacturer, is interfering with the installation. Certain manufacturers provide custom drivers, and do not allow generic drivers to be installed. That is because they believe that the custom driver provided by them is the best for the computer that they built, and that newer generic drivers may cause issues with the functionality of their computer. However in the majority of cases, there is actually no reason why a new driver provided by the hardware manufacturer shouldn't be installed.

In this video you will see how to work around the error message and successfully update your Intel Graphics Driver.

Note that, incase you do experience issues after installing a new generic driver, you can always go back to the one provided by your computer manufacturer.

We are going to do this in 3 steps:

1. First step is figuring out the model/type of your Intel graphics card.
2. Second step is finding the compatible driver and downloading it.
3. Third step is the (un-installation of the old driver) installation of the new driver.

About The Witcher (Enhanced Edition, Director's Cut)

The Witcher is a RPG for the PC developed by CD Projekt RED STUDIO and published by CD Projekt in Poland and Atari for the rest of the world.

The game was released in Europe and North America in October 2007. The Enhanced Edition was released on September 2008 and the Director's Cut in July 2009. The Director's Cut is the same as the Enhanced Edition, but with all censorship removed, which was originally applied to the North American version.

The Witcher is based on a series of fantasy short stories (collected in two books, except for two stories) and five novels about the witcher Geralt of Rivia by a polish fantasy writer, Andrzej Sapkowski.

Note that this is blind let's play: I haven't played the game before this let's play. Please don't post spoilers on the comments, thank you!
