ive tried changing his resolution,bit depth,tried update his directx but said he was updated,his graphics card/chip is 1 i havent myself heard of before its a imagine graphics pixel perfect k2 64 mb ive searched for updated drivers for this but cannot seem to find any anywhere....1 site i come across cnet i think said this was discontinued

How old is the graphics card? 64mb is quite low for nowadays graphics.
If it's possible, buy a new one, preferably a 128/256mb Smile

We'll see what Doc says when he drops by.

Newer versions have more packed in and bug fixes, people always build upwards.
Not even GTA4 would play on yours (or if it did, it would be laggy and jumpy), or my machine at home. I've seen the specs needed for GTA4, it runs best on a G9800 512mb+ and they are one of the best, expensive.

Technology is always evolving, and sometimes better hardware is needed.

These are card too old, I doubt the manufacturer produces any more of these drivers.

Nah, I doubt there is. I have another laptop with integrated graphics, tried all kinds of ways to get certain games to work, but have not found any to date.
