Old games don't play well, you will have to try to change the capability mode for the game.

If you need more help you should leave more information.

Toshiba Satellite Pro L300 Review


Intel Core 2 Duo T8100 2.1GHz processor
Intel X3100 Integrated Graphics
160GB (5400 rpm) hard drive
Windows XP Professional OS

Your specific model may have a different cpu, amount of ram, size of hard drive, or even a different mboard / onboard graphics but in any case it's got much better hardware than the Starfleet Command games require.

There are at least three versions of Starfleet Command.

For the oldest version, released September 15, 1999

Star Trek: Starfleet Command

Minimum CPU Type: Pentium
Minimum CPU Speed: 166 MHz
Minimum RAM Required: 32 MB
Minimum Hard Disk Space: 200 MB
Graphics Type: SVGA
Graphics Resolution: Multiple Resolutions
Color Depth: 256 Colors

Your laptop exceeds all those requirements, assuming your computer has lots of free space on the hard drive

If it still has XP on it, search the web for: run Starfleet Command in XP
or similar.

How do I run Starfleet Command in Windows XP?

Some old games run very well in XP if you use the SCUMM virtual machine in XP but Starfleet Command is not listed.

"laptop.l300 2cw"

The specific version of your L300 model is shown on a label on the outside of the computer case, probably on the bottom of it

In your case that may be L300-ST2501

There are at least three versions of Starfleet Commander.

The oldest version was released September 15, 1999.
It's Win 95 ? compatible.

The second version was released in ? - it's Win ? compatible.

The third version - Starfleet Commander III - was released in 2002. It's Win XP ? compatible.

The situation is similar to the situation in XP - you run it in a Compatibility mode.

RIGHT click on the installation file for Starfleet Commander

For the first version, the 16 bit version of that file named Setup is confirmed to work.

Open up Computer, click once on the drive letter for the CD or DVD drive the CD is in, find Setup (NOT SFCSetup) on the right side, RIGHT click on it.

Choose Properties - Compatibility tab

Click on the small square blank box before Use Compatibility Mode For to insert a checkmark in the box,
Choose Win95 mode.
Click OK at the bottom of the Window.

For the third version, do the same thing, you can choose XP mode.

You MAY need to set the Compatibility mode for BOTH the installation file, and the resulting file that starts up Starfleet Commander after it's been installed.

Play around with the compatibility modes for the game. You right click on the icon that you use to launch the game, click find target, right click on the exe, go to properties, compatibility.
