I bought Fallout 3 Game of the year addition for my laptop but it wont play. i've searched for help b4 and couldnt find any help that worked.
my specs on my laptop are as following

Toshiba Satellite P505 Laptop
Intel® Core™2 Duo CPU T6600 @ 2.20Ghz
6.00 GB Ram
Windows 7 64-bit Operating System
500 GB hardrive

it works fine on my desktop when i tried it and its Windows Vista similar specs but not as good as my laptop and it runs good on my destop. is it because of Windows 7. ive heard that a lot of programs don't work on 7 as good or at all and Vista and XP ran them. plz help.

There are several versions of the Satellite P505, but from your description, it sounds like you have the P505-S8980, which has an Intel GMA 4500MHD as the GPU. This chip is not powerful enough to run a graphically demanding game like Fallout 3. You will have to stick with playing it on your desktop.

The game will only work on computers running Windows. An Apple notebook will definitely not work.
