Windows 7: Does anyone think my netbook is suited for gaming? Inspiron 1012 min?

Does anyone think my netbook is suited for gaming? Inspiron 1012 min?


I was just wondering. I was at my friend's place today, and he told me to download Combat Arms. So I downloaded it, installed it, and tried running it three times. Each time a black screen came up and pretty much did nothing, till the time where I couldn't onpen anything else on the computer, forcing me to force kill it and try again. So I was thinking and decided to ask, is my netbook equipped for gaming maybe? You can check my system specs (for the most part) and see for yourself I guess.

Hello pivotstudent. Per your request in your other thread;Hello Windows 7 Forums! I have found your question. To be honest, your Inspiron 1012 is pretty much only suited for light tasks and web surfing. IF you are really curious and want to know what your PC can do, go here; Can You RUN It | Can I run that game | Game system requirements It's a reputable site, the plug in is safe. If you have any questions beyond that, let me know.
