sorry to break the bad news, but it's next to impossible to upgrade the graphics in a laptop.

if you wanted to play games, i would spend the money on a xbox or similar.

ERRRRRRR, I just wanted to play a good open world game, and ~I understand it's impossible to play it on XP, so I can't play it on my home PC~ Do you know any games like it?

What a waste of 10Hours

are you sure it's impossible to play on xp?

again, the most important factor is the graphics card/chip in the xp machine.

i noticed it was a directx9 game, and assumed it would work on xp too.

i stand corrected.

The problem is your graphics simply don't support the shader model just cause 2 uses.
I don't think there's really a way around it.

Problem was resolved on MY system recently, by DOWNGRADING my graphics driver ... seems that NVIDIA Drivers higher than 275.33 cause this problem. And by the way ... MY graphics card was a GTS250 until Oct 2011 and I had NO PROBLEM playing the game.

Not really related this guy had a old intel graphics that just couldn't handle the game. If you are having a similar type of problem starting a new thread is probably in order.
