"I have 512mb radeon graphic card" what it's name? By default win 7 installs dx11 but older games and some new games like braid require direct x9, go to microsoft site and download direct x 9c.

Depending on the age of your laptop, the integrated graphics may not support DX9, regardless of whether DX9 is actually installed or not. Is your laptop a new one that came with Win7 pre-installed? Or is it an older one that you (or someone else) installed Win7 on?
