Hi, i?ve got a dell inspiron 6400. It?s a 1,66 ghz processor, 2gb ram, intel GMA 950 (256mb shared memory). I would like to know if battlefield 2 will work ok on that laptop. I don?t need extreme graphics,I just want to know if it will work ok.

I highly doubt it

BF2 is a graphics intensive game. PC's without the proper Graphics card will either over heat due to the demand required of them or you'll find yourself crashing back to desktop or playing really slowly.

Your GMA is a problem that cannot be ignored. You can try to see if it works, however, you sure won't be enjoying the lush perks that you get with laptop with better graphics. Like the XP series from Dell.

Actually i can handle it just fine with x300se, which isn't much better than the igp. 1280x1024 with distance drawn at 50% runs a bit laggy but playable. Turning it down to 800x600 =virtually no lagg. Pentium M 1.77 should be equal to 3.3-3.4 GHz P4.

How do you get it to work on the 6400?

Hey, since a lot of you have it running on your 6400s, could you tell me how I could too?
As soon as I get on to it, it goes black for a second and then dies.
Help!
I've got the standard Centrino Duo, and I've got the usual integrated graphics card.
How do I get it to work?

That might be the problem.
