I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the game, running it in compatibility mode and starting my computer with a clean boot. I have downloaded a driver checker and all drivers are installed and up to date. Please Help!!

It's only got an Intel HD graphics chip (it lacks a discrete AMD or Nvidia graphics card which many newer laptops have) so it's not suitable for playing many newer games on.

It just hasn't got enough graphics power to make the grade.

Thanks for your reply. The game is an old game which used to work on my old laptop which was a lot more basic so I would have thought that the graphics would be ok?

Thankyou for your help

"The game is an old game"

Yes it is, 15 yrs old. Try running it in XP compatibility mode.
