Hello Phohato, Welcome to sevenforums

Sorry but you'll need to provide a bit more information. And where did you get the game from.

Also, the integrated graphics you have there aren't exactly friendly to the game.

You might look to this post for some tips or suggestions - Tips on Troubleshooting Game Issues

Let us know.

what we are trying to say is that you have a laptop with integrated video card, not a dedicated one that would have more power... your laptop is designed for every day use, something like office work, browsing the internet and/or watching a youtube video.

I don't know how heavy on CPU or GPU that game is but the only thing I can recommend you to do is... download fresh copies of Audio and Video drivers and saved them to a Temp folder, uninstall your drivers, restart, allow windows 7 to install generic drivers, then go ahead and install the newer drivers, hope to God that all you had were corrupted drivers when you install the game.

If problem persists then try to uninstall the game again and do a new installation of game... hopefully that will work out for you.

Again, your laptop is a little dated and it was not meant to play games.

What is the model of your Lenovo? perhaps we can help with finding new drivers if you don't know how... Lenovo's have an application that allows for automatic updating of your whole system, you may want to look into that as well... at least mine had it

And the "integrated Graphics" in this case is built into your motherboard, so you probably can't change it. And I say probably because "some" laptops allow you to switch them out, but you would have to look into that yourself - ask the manufacturer.

That said, were I a betting man, I'd say no, you can't swap cards. So you have what you have.

Good luck.

Try that link given by Dude (I think it was) and check your system specs for the game.

If you can't play it... jotted down to experience and try to learn from it.

The lesson here is... unless you have money to burn, search and educate yourself of the product before you purchase!

Sometimes it's the luck of the draw whether a game will play on below spec'd systems at times. And to be honest, there could be something else going on, but since the system is below specs, it kind of trumps everything else since it's the most likely thing causing the issue.

Basically Iím saying that because your system is below specs, it could be hiding other issues causing the game not to run.
