  1. kinda looks like you you're trying to play on Intel's integrated graphics instead of a discreet graphics card.

    as I look again, is this a laptop ? forget it mac.
  2. ...do you have a graphics card? Integrated Intel graphics won't work.
  3. It's a Dell Laptop running on Intel i5.
  4. You need a new graphics card
  5. Id try to return the game if possible, your not gonna be able to play BF3 or many of the new games coming out.
  6. Won't run on your laptop cos of the Integrated graphics.
  7. Why is that? And can i upgrade my graphics?
  8. No you will not be able to , Laptops don't have the ability to put a discrete graphics card into them.
    You have to buy a laptop which has a decent graphics card already built in by AMD or Nvidia.
  9. There are some high end dedicated gaming laptops that can have their graphics upgraded but you are just out of luck. Sorry.
  10. Intel's Highly Deficient integrated graphics is not sufficient for modern games. Your system does NOT meet minimum requirements.
  11. got a new $2,000 pc. thanks
