I have an acer aspire 5349 laptop with an Intel Celeron B815 dual core processor. I want to play Alien Isolation but whenever I try to open it it says that a graphics card supporting DirectX 11 was not detected. I checked and I do have DirectX 11 on my laptop but when I try to check my graphics card it just says Intel HD Graphics family. I don't really know where to go from here; do I need to update my graphics card? If I do how do I do that? It says on the minimum requirements for Alien Isolation that I need as least an Intel Core 2 Duo E8500 processor so do I need to update to that? If so how do I do that???
Sorry to be a bother I'm just really confused...

The Acer Aspire 5349 laptop sold for about $350.00 when it was released.

It's a consumer level model and not designed for the demands of gaming.

The only hardware upgrade option you have is to max it out with 8 GB of RAM - if it's running a 64-bit version of Windows.

You cannot upgrade its processor and graphics device.

You will want to buy a laptop designed for gaming, you may want to look into Alienware.
