Virtually all graphics cards in laptops are integrated, and not removable. If your laptop doesn't support Pixel Shader 1.1, there is nothing that you can do about it.

Where can you get a free shader 2 model update?

Update to the latest version of DirectX.However:Unless your video card currently supports Shader Model 2, on the hardware level, the video card will not be able to process Shader Model 2's instructions.You will need to use a Shader model 2 capable card, this is a card which accelerates DirectX 9.0A.(nVidia started with Shader Model 2 cards with its 5000 series and above)(ATI Started with its SM2 cards with their Radeon 9000 series)

You can't, sorry. Pixel Shader isn't available in Geforce 4 MX, as it's entry level. You need to buy an AGP card like Geforce FX 5200 above, or 6200, or 6600.

What is shader makeup?

Basically shaders are designed to contour our facial feature. To use it you deminish features for example if you had a broad forehead you'd use shader near and above your temples to make your forehead appear less broad and smaller. Hope this helps!:)

Where can you get pixel shader 3.0 and how much would it cost?

Pixel Shader is a graphics processing program that runs on the GPU (graphics processing unit) in your video card. There are many versions of PS (Pixel Shader), and I believe at the time of writing the latest version out is 4.1. To get at least PS 3, you will need to get an ATI RADEON x1300-x1900 or a GeForce 6-7 series card, or above. Some of the Intel GMA integrated chipsets support it, but it's emulated and as such will run MUCH more slowly. For a quick chart to this information, please see Search in google shopping as a starting point in searching for a good deal on a video card, but most likely you can get a PS 3 video card for less that $100 US.

Can I download Sims 2 computer game to my HP laptop with Windows Vista and the laptop has 3 or 4 GB?

By download I hope you don't mean "pirate". If so, then you can, but you really shouldn't. You can install it to the laptop, provided it has a modern-enough graphics processor (intel X3100 or above should just cut it). But you can't run it without the original disk in the drive, any way to do that would be illegal.

What is the best laptop for an architecture student?

Rather than best laptop, it would be better to look at the specs of the laptop. For architecture, I'd recommend a fast dual-core (Intel's newer i3 or i5 series would be best), 3GB or more RAM, a mid-level graphics card, 15-16" screen, and the usual accessories like Bluetooth (you'll probably want to use a separate mouse). For a laptop with the above specs, you'll probably be looking at around $1500-$2000.

Highlighter and shader makeup?

Highlighters and shaders are designed to contour the facial features. To use highlighter you want to accentuate certain features e.g. if you have a narrow face you would brush highlighter down the sides of the face near the hair line to give width. To use shader you want to deminish features e.g. if you have a broad forehead you would use shader near and above the temples to make it appear smaller.

What are the Pixel Shader versions for video cards and how do I know which cards support them?

* Any video card supporting DirectX 8.0 or higher has Pixel Shader 1.1. * Any video card supporting DirectX 8.1 or higher has Pixel Shader 1.3/1.4 & Vertex Shader 1.1 * Any video card supporting DirectX 9.0 or higher has Pixel Shader 2.0. * As of DirectX 9.0c there is support for Pixel Shader 3.0. * For Vista only, video cards supporting Direct3D 10 have Pixel Shader 4.0. You can upgrade your Pixel Shader version by buying a video card with the appropriate support for the versions of DirectX listed above. The related links will provide you with the information as to which video card supports which version of DirectX so you can make an intelligent choice for your purchase. DirectX/Pixel Shader support is not something you can upgrade on the video card, you must purchase a new one to upgrade it. If your video card is listed as having support for DirectX version 9.0c/Pixel Shader 3.0, but you keep getting an error saying you do not meet Pixel Shader 3.0, your version of DirectX may be out of date. You can update your DirectX version (and should have it updated regardless of what your video card can support, due to bug fixes and other changes) to the newest one. You can find the newest version at the link below for Microsoft's download site (Windows XP/Server 2003 or lower) or through Windows Update (Microsoft Update).

Where can you download Pixel Shader 1.1?

Pixel shader 1.1 (and later variants) are hard-coded into the video card and its drivers. If you have a fast processor and a good amount of ram, you may be able to get around the pixel shader requirement by downloading "3DAnalyze" and "Swiftshader 2.0" to emulate pixel shader. More likely, the best option is for you to simply replace your video card with one which has native support for pixel shader. The above answer is dead on target! Let me add to this fire....... Although there are work-arounds to the pixel shader, it is ill-advised to download a patch or third party software to achieve what comes nativley in the newer vidio cards. The compitition is so tough in the industry, what would have been a top of the line video card last month, is now the cheapest card on the shelf! Remember that even if you do get a third party software to achieve what it is that you want in a display, the OS and computer will have to work harder to maintain the demands of not only the third party software, but any additional workload that the software generates. Memory allocation is reduced because the demand of the third party software is memory intensive. Thus, reduced performance. Emulatores do not work with every game, applications or systems. Not to mention, calling on the drivers to perform out of their scope, can also lead to corrupt system files and fragmentation of the system partition. Emulators temporarily "change" critical system and driver files per demand, to allow the system to adapt to the new drivers and dll files offered by the emulator. After the emulator is no longer needed, some times, the files don't get "put back" or restored to the defaults, and you have a mess on your hands! Listen to the answerer above, and get a new card! You need to get a better graphics card. However there is a way around it. has a tutorial for getting over the problem Pixel Shader is a hardware capability. Therefore, it is not possible to download it - it must be supported by the graphics card. To answer your question directly, you will need to install a graphics card that supports Pixel Shaders to be able to run games which need it. Most modern games utilize Pixel Shader 2.0 or greater, so it would not be advisable to purchase older ones. The following cards support Shader Model 1.x: - ATI Radeon 85xx Series (1.4) - ATI Radeon 9000 Series (1.4) - ATI Radeon 9100 Series (1.4) - ATI Radeon 92xx Series (1.4) - NVIDIA GeForce3 Ti (1.1) - NVIDIA GeForce4 Ti (1.3) The following cards support Shader Model 2.0: - ATI Radeon 95xx Series - ATI Radeon 96xx Series - ATI Radeon 9700 Series - ATI Radeon 9800 Series - ATI Radeon X7xx Series (2.0b) - ATI Radeon X8xx Series (2.0b) - NVIDIA GeForceFX Series (2.0a) The following cards support Shader Model 3.0: - ATI Radeon X1x00 Series - NVIDIA GeForce 6 Series - NVIDIA GeForce 7 Series The Vertex Shader and Pixel Shader are hardware capabilities, and therefore cannot be downloaded. A new graphics card, with the Vertex Shader and Pixel Shader technology, is the way to solve the problem. However, an Emulator can be downloaded in order to use games that require it. These programs are hard to find, and are mostly slow.
