Hi


I've just bought star was knights of the old republic 2 (bit of a kotor fan) and my pc is only 1 year old so it PLENTY powerful to play the game but when I run it, it gets about 10 seconds into the intro for the game and pops up the annoying "not responding" message and closes the game. But the games is running perfectly in the backround its just windows bloody 7 refuses to acknowledge it!


My laptop is an i3 4gb ddr3 ram (Yes I know not gaming platform by far but it should be able to play a game 11 years old!) I have tried running in compatibility mode but its made no difference- please help I don't want my purchase to go to waste!


Any ideas id be very grateful

Yes it says its no capable but when you read the break down it exceeds EVERY requirement the website looks for- which is why I don't use it much it doesn't make sense to me- only the os is unrecognised as its w7 not what its designed for- anyhow my older laptop can run it so I don't understand why this one refuses to- next suggestion pls

Sadly even that doesn't fix the problem I get as far as the intro- long ago in a galaxy far...etc

Intel HD 3000 isn't going to play some games correctly usually because of direct draw issues. It's an Intel GPU thing. If you want to game with no issues even a cheap desktop will be far better. Something like an FX 4100 with a 960g motherboard and a cheap GTX 650, etc.
