You are trying to run high graphics games with a graphics adapter that cannot handle it. You will have to upgrade, (and depending on what kind of laptop you have, it may be virtually impossible to do so.) -- -- -- I don't know where I got the laptop from?

ALSO...you do not have enough processing power for these games either. It might be time for a new computer.

It looks to me like if you upgraded your video card your system would meet (exceed) those minimum requirements of the game that you've shown.

You might need to upgrade your Direct X version, too. I notice that the game requirement is for DX 9.0c and your listing shows DX 9.

If you go to "Start", then "Run", and type "dxdiag" and "OK", you'll get a screen that shows quite a lot of information, including the exact version of DirectX that you have.

Otherwise, if you'd like to run any of the current games, I agree - you need a more powerful system, although some might run at lower levels on yourd if you had an acceptable video card.

I know you think you understand what you thought I said,
but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant!
