Re: need to now cpu in my laptop
This is just a rough guide, as it all depends on the the games your looking to play, but this is about normal to get games running without problems :
MINIMUM SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS: Microsoft(r) Windows(r) XP Service Pack 2, Vista • 1.8 GHz processor • 512 MB RAM • 8 GB available hard drive space • 128 MB video RAM or greater, with DirectX 9 Vertex Shader / Pixel Shader 2.0 support • Sound card, speakers or headphones • 56.6 Kbps Internet connection required.
RECOMMENDED SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS: 3.0 GHz Intel or equivalent AMD processor or better • 1 GB RAM or better • 10 GB available hard drive space • 256 MB video RAM, with DirectX 9 Vertex Shader / Pixel Shader 2.0 support (Nvidia 6800 or better) • Internet connection with Cable/DSL speeds Note: recommended specifications provide optimal experience for single player and up to 4 player/medium size map multiplayer.

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
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!
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.
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.
