Maybe its cus your on a laptop. Even tho you could run the game on low setting s or something, the game wont start properly because of your low config. What comparability issues? i played it on w7 and it ran just fine. and this was before i got my graphics card.

Hi,

This sounds like a DIRECTX problem, or a graphics card problem, or both.

Firstly, ensure that your card has the latest drivers installed. Next, click the Start Orb, and in the search box type dxdiag, and then hit enter.

You should see a panel similar to this one shown below. Click the Save All Information as a TXT file, then copy and paste the contents here, or upload the file as an attachement for us to look at.

Regards,
Golden

Click the Save All Information button, and then copy the text out of the resultant file, and post it here.

Use this tutorial to gather some information from your hardware and post it here too:
