    Hi guys,

    When I try to play a game with my laptop ( Dell Inspiron 15r) I got like 3-5 fps. Its a way old game and it should run smooth if I compared my system specs and the recommended specs from the game. I hope someone could help me.

    My system specs:
    Intel® Core™ i3-2330M 2.20 ghz
    4 MB ram
    500 GB Harddisk
    Intel HD Grapics 3000 (1,6 gb vram)
    Running it on windows 7 ultimate 64 bit.

    The recommended specs for the game (Knight Online):
    Minimum Recommended
    Operating System Windows 98/2000/XP/ME Windows 98/2000/XP/ME
    CPU Celeron 300 Intel Penium 2 400 MHz
    RAM 128 MB 256 MB
    Video Card 16 MB or above 3D Display Cards with DirectX support 32 MB or above 3D Display Cards with DirectX support
    Hard Disk 400 MB 600 MB
    DirectX 8.1 or above 8.1 or above

    Thanks in advance,

    I have seen that, seems like new video cards are not compatible with old games, by the way, can you see that your OS is not listed? try to force compability mode to XP or W98. if won't work(I think it won't), try to change game graphics mode in the game like D3D/OpenGL.
    Good luck!
