Vertex and pixel (or fragment) shaders are shaders that run on a graphics card, executed once for every vertex or pixel in a specified 3D mesh. They operate in the context of interactively rendering a 3D scene, usually using either the Direct3D or OpenGL API.

no. even if you could deactivate it in the game engine, the menus would probably use it, so it wouldn't work. You could buy a cheap GPU for a very low price that would allow you to play simple games. Ex.: Ge-Force FX5500 128Mb Pix.Shader 2 ; Vertex Shader 2 ! (OpenGL 2)
