Question from YetiTheLonghorn

Asked: 6 years ago

Why can't I start the game?

I just bought the GOTY edition today, with the Shivering Isles and Knights of the Nine expansions. I have installed everything, yet every time I try to start the game up I get a Windows error. It won't tell me what is causing the error, simply that the game needs to close. Here is what I am running:

Dell Inspirion 1520 laptop
Intel Core2 Duo processor, 2.00 Ghz
2G Ram
No video card, just the Mobile Intel 965 Express Chipset Family
Windows XP, SP2

Any ideas? Or am I screwed until I can afford a video card?

Get a laptop with a dedicated graphics card instead of that Intel inbuilt crap.

Why did you even get a game when you don't have a graphics card.........

Zek, i don't think thats the issue. My friend was running oblivion (not GOTY) on a laptop, it worked. Lagged, but worked.

Laptops can run games, im not saying they cant, you can get laptop mobos with 8000 series intergrated graphics card, im saying that the intel chipset he has is purely so he can see stuff on the screen.
