Re: game video acceleration
It won't be the Direct X. You should be running no less than Direct X 9.c for XP, and 10 for Vista. The reason will be your graphic's chipset isn't really good enough for the game that you're trying to run.
One thing to do, is to download the most current drivers for your system, which can be found on the support and download page of the Sony website. If you look on the back of the box on almost all games, they come with a little note along the lines of "while laptop or intergrated chipset versions of the above may work, they are not supported". Unfortunately if updating the drivers doesn't help, then the only solution is to play it on an up to date desktop system.

Look and see if it appears as a monitor in your display settings, if it doesn't, then another good first step would be to update your video card drivers (go to this page and select "Video" then download " Intel Graphics Driver"). If none of this fixes it try the VGA cable with a different PC and see if it works.
Hook a spare monitor to the video output usually on the back of the laptop, if picture okay! the LCD panel on the laptop is faulty and must be replaced. If both show the same system it is the Video Graphic Card that is defective and usually built into the motherboard.
this is a heat problem. try blowing the fan vent and all opening with air. a air compressor does this well. if you don't have one you can buy dust remove in a can.(same thing but compressed air in a can) they also sell a fan plate you can put under the laptop at walmart. (around 15 dollars) i use one on my laptop. i used Velcro to keep together. the fan plate uses a usb port to power it on. hope this helps and please rate. thank you.
