Help?

I figured that since I'm new here and I have most of my problems with games, Id'e come here. I have recently installed windows 7 and since then I have yet to be able to play any games, other than flash, on my computer. I was wondering if I could get some help from the ground up since I really don't know what I am doing. Ask question you think might help you understand the situation. Any help is appreciated.

Unfortunately you're not going to be able to play much on a laptop with a standard VGA adapter. What games are you trying to play?

What he is trying to say that you need to install the drivers for your graphic card. Windows 7 installed the basic "I work on everything" driver. If you can give me a link to the IBM product page for you laptop I can find a newer driver for you. K?

Yes, thats it. You said that you have a T43 not a T43/P. Therfore you hhave a Intel (910GML / 915GM).

This is what you have:

Mobile Intel® 915GM/PM/GMS & 910GML Express Chipset Family

Graphics — Older Intel® graphics controllers and Microsoft Windows 7* operating system

This is the link to the driver download:

http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Deta...adType=Drivers

Run the .exe in xp captability mode. Post if it work/does not.
