On one of my laptops I have a ATI Radeon X1200 Series video card. I installed Diablio III and after installing it says my card is not supported for that game. I need a Intel HD video card to do the job so my question is this. How do I do this?

Did you try playing the game? I know I got that message from Rift, but could play just fine and without cooking the card.

I hate to break it to you but its not going to play on that system. Even if you could manage to get it to run it would render in stop motion.

I can tell you that your video driver is WAAAAAAYYYYYY out of date.

head over here for an update to get it atleast 3 years closer to date. http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/windows/Legacy/Pages/radeonaiw_xp.aspx

Did someone say Rift? All Hail the Defiants!!
Anyway also check your Direct X and make sure that is up to date so you don't get the card working and have to mess with another update. I'm just thinking if one is out dated the other may be too. \:\)

No, well no unless you have an Alienware. Your graphics are onboard in 99% of the laptops made outside of high dollar gaming laptops.

I bought a new PC to run games like those, the insides can be interchanged not like a lap top. I had the same problem with my brand new Dell laptop, video card wasn't strong enough.

You can buy external video cards for laptops but you would also need an extra power source to stop the battery from dying so fast.

HP has some decent desk tops on sale which can run Diablo 3 and Starcraft 2 at the low setting. Then you can purchase separate video cards, ram sticks, etc to make it run better.

It's hard to keep up with technology as every year the new stuff you buy is constantly being outdated for something better.

My best advice is to get a desk top for gaming. Or spend 3000 dollars on a nice alienware laptop if you're looking for a portable computer system.

Also keep your eyes out in the future for the FIONA- it is made by razer and is a portable gaming computer with all that shazam built in.
