    Try this Website out. It will let you choose a Game from a list. Then it will Scan your PC to see if it is capable of playing it, and will list the results in detail, so you can see what it fails on if anything :-).

I cant play fifa 09 on my acer aspire one 522, is it with the resolution? how can I fix this?


Your processor is the problem : It's a dual core 1GHz AMD C-Series processor C-50 and even though it might barely be able to run the game, the game was made before the processor type was released, and thus the game doesn't know what the heck it is and only sees that its a 1GHz CPU and thus considers it to slow to run the game.

Here are the system requirements:
Operating Systems: Windows XP SP2 / Windows Vista - CPU: 2.4 GHz
- RAM: 512 Megabytes of RAM (1 GB required for Windows Vista)
- DirectX 9.0c Compatible 3D accelerated 128 MB video card or equivalent (must support Shader Model 2.0 or above)
- DirectX 9.0c Compatible Sound Card
512kbit/s or greater broadband connection for online gameplay
- 6.1 GB free hard disk space for DVD format and additional space required for DirectX 9.0c installation
- 8x or faster DVD-ROM drive

When I open th game it says (CERTICAL ERROR:D3D ERROR C


check if you have Direct 3D installed on your PC or if your video card does support the D3D function it is trying to perform. i think you should know the type of video card you are using. and maybe buy one that fits what your video games needs. D3D errors have nothing to do with CPU specs it is mostly about your video card. hope this helps. goodluck!

I dont have graphics card now so i cant play some big games


You won't be able to play bigs games, Usually with the games, it comes with a system min requirement and the min direct x version need to play those games. If you do not meet the min requirement, then you cannot play that game, and you will need not just to upgrade the video card but maybe mem, cpu and direct x to meet the min requirement.

Can't run a PC game, but its properly installed.


Chances are the desktop PC had a video accelerator and the laptop didnt. Laptops have integrated video cards that share the systems processor and memory to do its work. Video accelerators have their own dedicated CPU and memory and take the video work away from the system. A video accelerator with say 64 to 128 mb of video memory may have a 250 to 300 mhz CPU on the card. This means the system can dedicate the full 1.5 GHz and 512 mb of memory to the game. Integrated video cards like this one will give up about a third of its memory AND half of its processing power to run your game. In essence, the laptop is SLOWER than the desktop when playing the game. If the laptop is running Vista, then the slowdown is even greater.

Game Freezes up CPU


your video card cannot support the graphics that game is trying to run. Try setting the graphics on the game's menu to a lower resolution or get a higher powered video card.
