Making Skyrim run with bad graphics card.

I have a Mobile Intel(R) 4 Series Express Chipset Family Video card running on a 36 bit 60Hz Toshiba. Skyrim just looks like gray triangles to me. Is there any way i can make Skyrim run in low graphics?

    I see. I'm not very tech oriented I'm afraid. Any recommendations?
    This is what I have
    Tosiba Satellite L305
    I have Windows Vista Homa basic
    processor:Intel(R) Pentium(R) Dual CPU T3400 @2.16GHz (2CPus)
    with 1916MB memory

    do such laptops exist??? (please don't take it otherwise)

    never came across such a laptop.....where do you plug in the card? do we get cards specific for that purpose or any card works????
  8. A friend told me to just download a Skyrim Mod to run in low graphics. But i'm a bit afraid to download random things.
    I downloaded something the other day and now i have all these crazy pop ups and stuff ( need to deal with that too)
    Need to ask for help instead of trying to do these things on my own. :(

    most of the skyrim mods are unofficial...i don't trust them

    even if you download the mod....i do not think it is going to be of much help to you.

    get another pc or laptop if you wish to game

    Yes I suppose that is the only way to go about this.
    I didn't want to buy another one since this one still works. But i guess if its for gaming I should. (needs to save money)
  11. good luck dude.......cheers :)
  12. Thanks for the help. If I were to buy a laptop to Game.
