Hi , I have a game that when I play it certain objects do not load properly and the game play is slow. Iam not sure if this is because my graphics card needs updating, I dont know alot about computers. Iam playing it on my laptop which runs on vista my graphics card is an ATI Radeon xpress 200m series, how do I know if this needs updating? I have been on the ATI drivers website but got confused. Thankyou in advance for any help :thumbsup:

Hi sar84, welcome to BC. :flowers:
When it comes to games, the best "first" thing to do is visit the game makers website to see if there is a patch addressing the issue and that your system meets or exceeds all requirements.
When you upgrade your video drivers on a laptop, you'll want to check with the laptops manufacturer first as they are often tweaked. If no updates are available from them, you can try another route.
If you wish to post the game that's having the problem, as well as laptop make and model, we can be of more help. There is no "generic" fix. :thumbsup:
