Ummmmm.......basically you don't have enough ram and your hard drive is to slow! :thumbsup: Kidding! :flowers:

Honestly, it does seem that your computer doesn't have enough ram and that perhaps you have an older 5400 rpm drive (or slower?) that doesn't meet the minimum requirements for the game. :trumpet:

Could you post your computer specs for us? We'll need them in order to properly help you! If you're unsure of how to get your specs, an easy way to get the basic specs is to go to Start>Settings>Control Panel then click on System. It'll tell you the speed of your processor (2.4 ghz, 1.73ghz etc.) and the amount of ram (512 mb, 2gb etc.).

Ya sorry man, but that computer isn't really going to play any newer games. My friend plays WoW, and the game goes slow sometimes even meeting the minimum ram of 512mb. If you did get more ram though your processor is not good enough.

I'm thinking about buying a new laptop (almost just because of WoW)

Do you have a good recommendation (or better yet what brand should I stay away from since I know a few brands are notorious for weak video cards).

I guess Compton81 and I are goin' PC shoppin' :thumbsup:

I've heard Alienwares are the best for laptops, but there pricey (you get what you pay for). Also if your looking for a cheaper kind maybe acer or compaq? My brother has a compaq which I remember trying the trial for WoW on, and it went fine.

I don't know if you've heard about this either, but they're coming out with external laptop graphics cards. I remember seeing a post about it somewhere here on bleepingcomputer. Hope this helps!

My best advice is to buy a new computer entirely to run wow, Try and get it cheap look around for deals, and if you ahve any questions on if it'll work or if its a good deal let us know, personally Id just steer clear of WoW entirely, its not worth the money lol (I still play....)...

You are looking at having to rebuild an entirely new system and if you dont' have the funds for it (and mommy and daddy come dry...) then you're SOL

Don't sweat it! :trumpet: You won't be able to install that game (even if you did, you couldn't play it) because your computer does not meet the minimum requirements. Even upgrading the ram and a graphics card won't help you because your processor is to slow. Depending on your motherboard, you might be able to upgrade your processor, but then you still might not be fast enough to play the game.

Unfortunately, you might have to get a different computer. :woot: By the time that you upgrade your current one to the point where you'd be able to play WoW, you'd have probably spent enough money to buy one from Dell, Walmarts or Sams Club that would play the game.

Not what you want to hear I'm sure! Sorry about that! :spam:

As to not hijack this topic, might I recommend that you start another topic and post your questions please! :inlove: You'll have more people looking at a new topic which would help you out more in the long run! :flowers:

If (when?) you start your own topic, be sure to post your specs if you're looking for a graphics card! It'll be easier to suggest something if everyone knows what your system consists of! :thumbsup:
