Specs: Windows XP, 700mb
every time i try to run a 3d game, the screen just went total darness with nothing on it unless i exit it. Could you please help me? The thing is my pc does not crash but it gives me error notices regarding graphics and vga controller.
In addition to that, I cant even install 3d screen savers, but i can play and watch vcd or dvd on my pc. I gues this information would help you.

The video used in your laptop is the Radeon 200M. Here's what's said about it:

"ATI Radeon Xpress 200M: ATI Radeon Xpress 200M is the shared memory integrated graphic card from ATI based on a X300 core. In general it is a bit faster than the Intel GMA 950 graphic core. Only older games can be played fluently with these graphics chips (if they were not too demanding)."


Generally speaking, your laptop is not meant for gaming. There are *some* games that will be playable but as stated above, they will be older, less demanding games. You didn't mention any titles so we have no idea what game(s) you're having problems with. Try using this:

Can you run it?

Also, make sure you have the latest video drivers installed.
