I tried to play need for speed: hot pursuit(2010). Everything was fine until picking the cars and actually racing. I did a little research and one person told me to go to: http://www.systemreq...ntslab.com/CYRI to see if i can run a specific game and i tried it with Need for Speed: The Run and unsurprisingly i failed, this is what it said:

If I am not seeing wrong, your computer( seemingly your laptop) has an onboard graphics card provided on your intel cpu. If not please give us more details about your gpu.
(Assuming yours is an onboard one) First of all you can't play a 3D game with an onboard graphics solution. They are not designed to process heavy graphics, just for some basic office work I can say. Well you can play some games but of course not healthy at all :D It will probably stop responding or heat up too much after a while and crash the game or shut down the pc.

And, if it is a laptop you use, I strongly recommend not to use Windows Vista by any earthly means :) Vista is like a handicapped little brother to Win7, it taxes too much of your RAM and prevents you from using the full potential of your computer. For your case Win Xp would be a more accurate choice.

hope it helps :) peace
