You may not have sufficient video RAM.
You may be able to increase the size of the video RAM from the BIOS setting.
If this doesn't work then the video card cannot handle the games graphics and there is no way you can upgrade/change the graphics card as it is part of the motherboard.
If you want to play realistic graphics/high resolution games, then get a desktop computer, you can configure/setup these computers with greater computer power, memory and high performance graphics cards.

Hi. It seems most of your computer hardware meet the requirements for this game. However, you do not have a separate video card. You are running on an Integrated Graphics Driver that comes with your motherboard. Most of these "default" graphics drivers do not have sufficient processing power to run newer games. I'm surprised you can still play the game tho, even at low speeds. You may have to get a new video card to play this game at full speed.

If you are a "gamer" and you have 1GB of RAM, and you have Windows XP, you probably need more RAM.
If you are a "gamer" and you have 1GB of RAM, and you have Windows Vista or Windows 7, you DEFINITELY need more RAM.

Some motherboards support "dual-channel" mode, when you have 2 or 4 _IDENTICAL_ sticks of RAM. What happens is that each byte written to the RAM is "split" into 2 halves; one half is written to the 'A' stick of RAM, while, simultaneously, the other half is written to the 'B' stick of RAM. Obviously, this takes 4 "cycles" of the RAM, rather than taking 8 "cycles", if there was only one stick of RAM. So, your RAM seems to run at "double-speed".

So, when you buy more RAM, either try very hard to "match" your current 1GB stick of RAM, or purchase a "2GB dual-channel kit", or two "2GB dual-channel kits", to upgrade to 2GB (or 4GB) of RAM.

I have compaq cq60 209TU laptop. It has intel Pentium Dual Core M


Not much. The intel GMA4500M is not a very powerful graphics format. Most new games run directX 10 and some will only work with DirectX 10 compatible cards. The intel GMA4500M can run Direct X 10...but not very well. Most laptops are not geared for gaming due to high end graphics processors use a lot of energy and can really shorten a laptop battery run time. There are laptops with high end built-in graphics by Nvidia and ATI. These laptops can be very expensive and are very large. In your situation you cannot upgrade the graphics in the laptop and are stuck with what you have. Most new games you will need to run them in low res for the frame rate to be high and may need to de-activate some of the Direct X 10 functions to speed up game play.

Cost of game hardware in india


2GB RAM should be about $100, the same for installation. Your current graphics card meets the specs you provided. An upgraded video card will be about $200 for one that will work, $300 for one that will work well.
