    Ok, right click on "computer" and go to manage. Click on device manager. Click the plus next to display adapters and tell me what it says under there. It is very likely that your laptop lacks the graphics card required to play those games, but we'll see.

    Warcraft III is a game that requires AT LEAST DirectX 8.

    Alright, what's the exact maufacturer and model of the laptop?
    What windows is listing under there isn't helping at all, it almost seems like the wrong driver is installed.

    your system is using an Intel X3100 running DirectX 9 should be able to run Warcraft 3 at decent frame rate.

    Are you getting an error at installation?
