Your GPU GMA X3100 is not powerful enough to handle most games including NFS shift

The clock speed of your GPU is too low
Laptops are not designed for gaming

sadly gaming with on board graphics is overall a very poor experience imho....but you don't have to believe me just do a Google/Bing search of benchmarks and gaming experience with the X3100

save yourself some frustration and download the NFS Shift demo and see if you can get the game to play at level that is acceptable to you on your PC before spending any $ on the game

You need Hardware T&L, which your integrated chip does not support by default.

The newer drivers from Intel do support this, but still your chip lacks power to handle most modern games.

I would say, give it a try with the demo. Then you'll know.

It would technically work but you would need to dial down almost all of the settings on it and probably run it at 640 x 480 or 800 x 600.

Well, according to the requirements as listed in their own forums, a GMA 950 would work properly. You wouldn't really have to "push" anything but you would have to, as I said before, dial down the settings when running the game to run at nearly the lowest quality so it can perform at least acceptably. http://forum.ea.com/eaforum/posts/list/1665738.page

Shift-E, Shift-L not working sticky keys off
My old keyboard was refusing to re-initialize after the peripheral reset during win 7 boot. It's about a decade old, so I just assumed it was dead. I replaced it with my wireless keyboard I use for working on computers, Ms laser 8000. My keyboard now initializes fine, but shift L and Shift E are...

NFS Shift or Shift 2 or something else?
I am looking for racing game, more of a SIM for PC. Graphics need to be good. Confused between Shift 1 and 2. Or is there some other which I should look into other than these 2? BTW, will not be using Wheel but gamepad or less likely keyboard.

Shift 2
My advice....Don't bother! Managed to get it a day early , what a let down. To me the graphics seem even inferior to the original Shift. Car handling not impressive. No wow factor what so ever.

NFS Shift Problems
I was playing NFS: Shift and then suddenly, without doing anything (this happens all the time with it on my PC), it'll freeze at the first red light. I installed XP 64 on another HDD, and that didn't have a problem, and it was much faster too. Any ideas?
