You have the same problem as the person in the following link. Your system doesn't meet the minimum system requirements, specifically the graphics, that are necessary to run the game. There's nothing you can do about it. The game will NOT play until you upgrade your hardware. Check the requirements on the side of the box, then compare them to your system specs.

What is it that you don't understand? If you don't have the right hardware, you won't be able to play the game. Setup is telling you that your graphics don't meet the requirement...that's what is meant by "video acceleration". It's not something you can download, it's a physical piece of hardware that needs to be installed. You need a new video card. There's nothing you can do to make the game work without spending another $50 or so for a video upgrade. <<< EDIT: you can't upgrade the video card in your laptop.

How about posting your system least the make/speed of your CPU, amount/type of RAM & make/model of graphics. If you don't know your specs, scroll up to the top of this page & find "My Home" on the upper on it, then click on "System Specs" & run the scan. Post the results.

I'm more confused than you. What don't you understand about
the fact your laptop doesn't meet the minimum requirement?

Post your pc specs.

UK MP's are thieving scumbags.
EU members are worse.

Yes, your laptop has a video accelerator, but it's not a good one. And the accelerator is built into the laptop, it's NOT replaceable, it can NOT be upgraded. You can try installing a more updated driver, but that's the limit of what you can try. If the new driver doesn't allow you to play the game, nothing will.

I just posted the following in your other thread. I'm repeating here just in case the new thread gets deleted because you violated the rule about double posting:

"I asked you to post your system specs. At least you've added that you have an Amilo li 2727 laptop, so now I can look up the specs for you.

Here's a review showing that you have the Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) X3100:

I did some googling & it seems that gaming with the GMA X3100 is "hit or miss"...some games will play, others will not. Try installing the latest available drivers. Click on the following link, click "ACCEPT", then click "IntelĀ® Graphics Media Accelerator Driver for Windows Vista * 32 (exe)". Make sure you note exactly where it's downloading to. After the download is complete, simply double click on the file to install the driver. You'll probably have to reboot after it's installed.

After the reboot, try your game. If it's still not playable, that's're done. There's nothing you'll be able to do to play it on that laptop. You need a better machine."
