You have integrated graphics. Which will not run that game. You will need a graphics card to play that game. The 8400gs is a separate graphics card. The 8400gs plays that game at low settings.

if i remember correctly, farcry2 installer will check if your pc meets the minimum requirements for the game. the hd4200 is faster than the 8400gs.

what operating system are you on? if you're on vista/win7, try running the benchmark first. go to your game's list > right click on farcry 2 launcher > then choose benchmark. try to run the benchmark.

if it still fails, the manual states:

*Supported Video Cards at Time of Release
ATI® RADEON® 1650-1950/HD 2000/3000/4000 series
NVIDIA GeForce® 6800/7/8/9 series
8800M and 8700M laptop cards running on drivers 175.19 and older
Other laptop versions of the cards listed above may work but are NOT supported.
These chipsets are the only ones that will run this game. For the most up-to-date minimum
requirement listings, please visit the FAQ for this game on our support website at:

i dont know how ubisoft categorizes gpu's but you might be on the safe side or securom might be effing you up.

That is not playable framerate.so the game donot start.since u willnot have fun playing it.



hahahaah.............

at low settings.................i get abt 25 to 30 fps.................
still the same !!!!!!!!!!!!!

but hows it possibly possible that the game benchmark runs fine showing all game aspects without lag or any problem but the game just doesnt run ????
