    The Brand and model for the laptop is Acer Aspire 5100-3949. For the graphics model and brand, im not sure....

    alright....When i try to play a game, for the first 10mins of playing, the game runs fine but then after the 10mins, the fps drops and I start to lag, it last for about 30sec. then it keeps on doing that for like about every 3mins. And for the driver update, the link doesnt work..

    I have 894mb of ram yet the system is supposed to come with 1gb and now i can't play my game because 1gb of ram is required.

    Sorry about the link. Lagging would be either your graphics card isn't too good but im certain its ok, you don't have enough RAM or you don't have much free room on your hard drive. Let me know how much RAM you have, by right clicking on 'My Computer' and clicking properties and it will say how much you have, and checking the free space in your C drive

    Let me know if there are any changes after running your game, also let me know what game you are testing. thanks

    Its ok, i am able to get enough info from that. It is intergarted but the Xpress 1100 Series is a good graphics card which should run games quite alright. Can you tell me what happens when you try to run a game. as much detail as possible please and i will work on your problem asap. Um for driver updates go to. Try This first, run a few games and then tell me what happens

    Depending on your computer which i don't know, it would be most likely your graphics are integrated on the motherboard and are either not up to date or is not good enough. Let me know what your laptop brand and Model are, and possibly your graphics model and brand and i will give you driver updates which will hopefully run your laptop better for games

Vista? that might explain alot. Some games that are designed for older systems won't run well on Vista so it could be that as your problem and speeds are very slow in Vista Systems compared to XP ones and this may be whats causing your lag. Ill give you a Vista Update but due to the system, it won't do much good im afraid. All i can offer is a machine with way superior graphics or a downgrade to windows XP which is not as simple as it sounds. There may be one more thing you can do to help you, increase your Virtual memory which i am not so sure how to do on Vista so Google it, or defragment your Hard Drive which again im not sure where it is so Google it if you don't know. Sorry i can't be of any greater help

It would be better to install a graphic card.
As most of the games recommended requirement is that you have installed a graphic card in your PC.
Also try some troubleshooting steps given here;
Stop un-necessary background running services
Update all drivers
Scan PC with an updated Anti-Virus
Also use game optimization softwares like PCFresher that will turn your computer to gaming mode.

I cannot play the game smoothly. and i dont have graphic card i want to play the game without graphic card help me please................


Unfortunately, if you have no graphics card, there really is no way to get it to play smoothly. That game is not too demanding for a gaming PC, but for a PC without really a graphics card....well it's just way out of your league.

It's like this: You have a mathematician and a 3rd grader, and you give them each the same multiplication problem.
The mathematician will do the problem quick and right away, problem without thinking.
The 3rd grader, however, will lag quite a bit behind and be slower at it.

Now, think of your PC as the 3rd grader, and your game as the math problem. Your computer's just too slow.

Some things that I guess you could try is turning down the graphics settings to low/minimal, and changing the DirectX level to 8 or 7. But really, your PC just can't run it.

perhaps you ran out of memory RAM when you started the game, or probably got shut down because ou overheated it... if could be a lot of reasons, oh, and check that you ahve enough battery, try running the game plugged on the electric socket and check if your computer meets the system requirements of the game

ERROR: Un supported pixel shader version detected, 2.0


You get this error because your graphic-card (architecture) is too old to run the game. To run the game you need a graphic-card which supports at least pixel shader 3.0, whil your card "only" has 2.1.

In case you're sure your card supports pixel shader 3.0, you'll need to update the graphic driver and/or DirectX (component of Windows) to the latest version(s) and try again.

If you're not sure wether your card support pixel shaders 3.0, you can post the brand, name and type of your graphic card here and I'll reply. When the card doesn't support 3.0, there is no other solution than simply buying a newer card (or don't play the game).

Unable to download games on my computer and if it is a driver issue unable to find a free driver for it


Hi

i think
Game is to heavy for your computer to run
Might need more free memory or your sound & Graphic card are not supporting this game. Before you download any aplication from any website make sure your computer meets the reguirements, Such as Operating system, sound and Graphic card and make sure you have enough Ram space to run the software.

Video card


Notebook computers unless made specifically for gaming aren't able to play the graphic intense games like gears of war and games that are graphic intense, I run an sli machine with dual graphics cards, ans still cannot play on the highest graphics settings on some machines, the new motherboards are runnong 3 an 4 video cards for gaming rigs. Most notebooks run shared graphics memory and don't have a seperate card for graphics, look at the alienware notebooks, and you will see what I am talking about, unless you have a 'Gaming laptop" custom job, playing the latest games is out for most normal laptops.

i have found that some boards don't like Nvidia graphics cards and play up when it comes to a particular graphical attempt. You can try the game and card on lower settings, but that defeats the purpose of the card, and make sure you have the latest directx (9C i think) installed You can try as i did some older graphic card drivers for your model as Nvidia now seem to make generic force drivers for all models. I had luck with different drivers for a while, but ended up buying an ATI graphics card and as of yet after a year had no graphic problems.
