Question about Compaq Presario 12XL421 (470009-027) PC Notebook
That would depend on the games you want to load. This laptop and most laptops have shared memory on-board and don't play high-end graphics too well. You can try and upgrade the memory, this laptop will hold up to 320mb. You can start out with 128MB Module 16x64-100MHz PC100,SO DIMM. And you need to make sure your hard drive is large enough and that your cd-rom drive is fast enough.

I'm afraid you wont be able to play any games on this unit as it has only an onboard graphics adapter runing at 8MB minimum and probably 32MB maximum as it is being shared with your system memory, so there wont be any change if you download the latest drivers as they only work the graphics not upgrade them. even some of the latest notebooks cannot play games very well unless they are more expensive models with dedicated graphics cards and not onboard graphics.
