    Just because it has memory, doesn't mean it's compatible. Most laptops have a shared video where as the games you talk about require a dedicated standalone video card. Only higher priced laptops have those. So your games won't work on the laptop.

Hi I think I have a solution. If perhaps your graphic card is working now with some games then your graphic card is not the problem. When new games come out they require more FPS (frames per second) in which you need an ungrade card. I suggestion is to buy the PC game first then read the PROCESS requirements and for instance mine says RADEON HD 2400 HD and I need a 4800 to play my new game :( go I am giving up on PC games because of the consistant upgrades Good Luck!

My VGA memory is 3 Gb, I install windows 7. my vga memory detect on my laptop 358 Mb


I would have thought that your total system ram memory is 3Gb...your vga memory of 358Mb is for your video graphics adapter...3Gb of video memory would be very unusual on a laptop...

I cant play 3d games


Try earlier versions of 3D games.
Your computer is a somewhat older model. So try playing 3D games released around 2000-2002.
Try NFS 6 or lower, GTA version 2, IGI 1 & 2 etc.
If even they don't work, try replacing the VGA card with a compatible but better VGA card (Cards from nVidia might be a good option).

Hello.

Either you have an operating system problem or memory issue.

First, boot your system to Safe Mode (press F8 repeatedly when powering on). Go to System Restore and choose a date when your system worked OK. Note: with System Restore, all your updates will roll back to that date. Follow the process.

If still a problem, disconnect all cables. Be certain to dispel static electricity by touching metal. Remove the battery and memory cover. Try reseating (removing and reinserting) your memory (try one module at a time to test).

Hope this helps.

Can i'm going in pc game for vista


1. PC games are better supported by Windows XP than Vista.
2. IGI is a large game and and may sometimes play very slow on vista.
3. This is because the game eats up a large amount of your RAM during gaming which slows down background windows processes.

4.However, the better way to play IGI on Vista is to install a NVIDIA Graphics Card - GeForce 8600GT - 256 MB / 512 MB on your computer.

Happy gaming! :)

My graphics card


this is probably shared graphics which uses your system memory to run the graphics.

358MB is an unusual amount of graphic memory, but remember this will be the total system memory, and 150MB of it would be dedicated to graphics when needed, the rest is needed to run the notebook applications
