so im trying to play a game called Skyrim, alot of you guys know that game

but when i press play it gives me an error

i looked at a couple of threads and it turned out to be about the graphics card

currently i have Mobile Intel(R) Chipset Express 945 -


i searched up my computer ( Inspiron 6400 Vista 32bit ) ye pretty old and i saw that Geforce 7300 -7400 is the graphics card made for my laptop.

here are my specs -


someone please help i payed alot for skyrim and i just wanna know a way i can get a geforce 7300-7400

cause when i try the setups some say u dont have a windows computer so you cannot continue on with this
setup, or you dont have a compatible driver.. ;S

try updating the drivers...

these are the nvidia geforce go 7300/7400 drivers, last updated 2009(they may not work for your laptop, but its worth a shot)

if they dont work, then try the dell drivers, last updated 2007

i wouldnt expect much playablity of skyrim thought with that laptop, its going to be very slow even on the lowest settings, but give it a try

How do you figure? Looking at http://www.uesp.net/wiki/Skyrim:System_Requirements that laptop should technically be able to run Skyrim, albeit only at the lowest settings.

Well I figured by looking at the system requirements, and looking at his system specs (a stretch I know). Like a GPU supporting directx 9c with 512MB of memory is required. And he had the Intel Chipset Express 945 graphics, which does not meet that, and wants to install a Geforce GO 7300 which A. Is not going to happen, and B.Does not have 512MB of ram.

There's also the convenient error message that says "hey your graphics card doesn't have the necessary hardware to run this"

Sorry, somehow I misread the original message and thought the OP already had the 7300 Go.

Wow, skyrim on a 7300, that "gpu" is 7 generations old. Yeah, not going to happen. Check the min requirements for the game, you don't meet them.
