Hello Michael J.,
Thank you for updating us with the information requested.
GeForce 210 is a very poor card, not for gaming.
The middle digit of NVIDIA GeForce card model number (Here it is " 1 " ) shows the power of the card. Ex- GTX 690 will be more powerful than GTX 680 and much more powerful than GTX 670 or GTX 660 etc.
Please try different driver from this link :
Please do keep us updated.

I opened the chassis and checked to be sure which GE 210 I have. I
believe I have a GV-N21002-1Gl. You can verify this by the serial
number (SN=110351132985). Let me know if I am wrong.
I saw your instruction, and already have the most current driver
NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-319.17 (dated 2013.05.02) installed. However, to be
sure, I reverted and tried all of the following with negative results:
All of the following cards are better than mine (at least the second
digits are greater than “1”) based on your explanation and none runs
Runescape HTML5 beta.
- G94 [GeForce 9600 GT]
- G96 [GeForce 9500 GS]
- GK104 [GeForce GTX 680]
- GT215 [GeForce GT 240]
- GF106 [GeForce GTS 450]
- GK104 (AKA GTX 670)
I checked the linux forum dedicated to this issue and the only other GPU
that seems to be giving people problems are older Intel chips that do
not appear to be accelerated and they do not run webgl in google
chrome. My card DOES run webgl in chrome (and firefox) - very nicely I
Is there a test I can perform and a readout I can provide that will tell
you if it is the game that is a problem or the driver for the card? If
yes, please provide the instructions.
There is one bloke who found that there is a script error regarding
shading in the game, but even though he fixed it, he has been
unsuccessful getting the game to work on the above-listed Nvidia cards
FYI, I’m more than happy to buy a newer more powerful card. But I would
need to know 100% that it would run the game (it’s the only game I play
and really like it).
I plan to be buying a dual Opteron system fairly soon and planned to buy
a newer GPU at that time, but I had planned to buy a maths centric GPU
(with lots of cores), not necessarily a gaming one - but the game might
be more important than making a super computer (I can always add
If you are not going to look into the issue of the cards listed here and
the Runescape HTML5 beta, but DO know of a card that already DOES work
(like maybe you played Runescape HTML5 beta on it (in linux), please let
me know and I’ll buy it as soon as possible. Just tell me the exact
Please advise. I’m extremely flexible and as stated before I really
love your cards and the fact you supply native linux drivers for them.
I also love the fact that nvidia is in some of the 10 fastest computers
ever made :)
