Question about Toshiba Satellite A215-S4697 Notebook PC
I have a toshiba satellite A215 ss4697 Turion64 X2 TL-52. I am trying to run Bioshock (I know, I'm dreaming) But it runs fine through the opening sequence ON the place, then when the plane crashes, the screen becomes black with tiny white squares floating down, some angular stuff, and flames in the corners, but that's it. The game clearly starts as I'm getting directions to use W, S, A, D to move, but the graphics are a jumbled mess of things that are incoherent. Any help is welcome. Thanks, Andy
Your graphics card cannot display the newer shader models this game uses. That is why everything looks as odd as it does. shader models are only upgradeable via hardware not software so new drivers wont help. and typically you cannot upgrade GFX on laptops. Sorry, you will need a Desktop system with a 6x nvidia chipset or ATI of similar power. I'd recommend though the 8x series though. (8800 or higher or equivilant)
