Get a better gfx card/comp. Simple as that.

Well your CPU is a bit above the bare minimum for the game


The CPU is like 4 times as powerful as the 'bare minimum'. The bare minimum being a 3GHz Pentium 4.

But yeah, it's probably the integrated graphics that's the problem

^Is there anything I can do so it will support it?


This is a laptop, or a proper desktop? I seem to remember them putting those E5X00 CPUs in laptops as well...

Simply buy low end PCI express graphics card. Just get something with 128 bit bus width and GDDR5 memory.

Probably want Radeon 7570 or GeForce GT 640, something like that, that doesn't need any power connector

Well, it seems I found a tedious solution: go to Compatability Mode, select windows 7, and next time I want to play, uninstall & reinstall, and change Compatability Mode to Windows Server 2003, and so on.
