I bought splinter cell conviction on Ebay a while ago. And I have it now, but it won't work on my laptop. It works on my brothers one but its really slow. Can anybody help me? :pfff:

I appears your laptop is not powerful enough to play this game.

Please supply us with the specifications of your system and we can give more advice.

evilgenius is right.

As he had listed, list the specs of your laptop.
It could work on your brother's maybe because he has a better video card than you do. Furthermore, Splinter Cell Conviction is poorly optimized for the PC. It struggles to run even on high end video cards.

The optimization in that game is pretty crappy. I have dual gtx 260s which were unable to get 60 frames per second constantly when maxed out in that game. I had to tone down graphics settings just to get the game to run smoothly. Imo, that's pretty ridiculous. For a game like splinter cell, I should be able to get 60 fps. I get constant 60fps in crysis 2 without problems. Splinter cell is just crappily optimized on pc....

Looks like you don't have a GPU. That's the problem, you see, first of all, you need a very good GPU in order to run the game with decent FPS. The game, as stated, is very and when I mean very, I mean VERY poorly coded!

4MB RAM ? You mean 4 GB ? That is good, but looks like you can only use 2.92 GB as you have a 32 bit OS. And the Core i3. Well, if you want to play the game I'd recommend you get something better like a desktop PC.

The system requirements are too high for you to be able to play on your laptop.
