not much you can do if your cpu isnt fast enough for the game.

i would try two things.

 

1)install the game and try it, maybe you can squeak by. depending on how far off you are on the minimum requirement. it might be choppy but playable.

 

2)if you are just a lil bit short on speed you could overclock your processor. but you could run into heat issues doing that. so proceed with caution.

 

what does the game say for requirements and what do you have?

sweet, you are not far off at all. less than 200mhz.

 

i would try to just install the game, most likely it will play (cross fingers)

 

and core2duo's overclock very nicely. you can use the bios to speed that up to 1.8 no problem in my opinion.

Go read some oc'ing tutorials, Its not smthing you should just jump into bios and start doing with basic computer knowledge.

 

Install the game first and see what its like, your cpu is not to far off so imo if you have any probs it will be gpu/ram related anyways. But the sensible thing wud be to install the game first before you do anything as lower specs wont stop the installation..

this ^^ is sound advice.

 

but he did say that he passed all the other requirents for the game.

 

like azee and i have said, try it first, turn off background things, and run the game in low detail.

i suggest you visit this forum for all your computer needs !!

sign up and there are tons of experts on the site. very friendly and more than willing to help you with anything you need. just ask away !! they have world record holders for overclockers there. along with tons of tips and tricks to get the most out of your computer

 

 

 

what is the exact model number of your laptop ?

you generally dont want to overclock laptops because of heat issues and voltage issues. it can be done but isnt really recommended. desktops are generally the machines you want to play around with when you get into overclocking. check out the site above !!
