Problem playing a game on Fujitsu-Siemens Laptop

  u04moira 14:42 29 Dec 2008

My boyfriend has bought a new game on disc but our laptop won't install it. It has Windows Vista and is only a few months old.

The weird thing is it plays an earlier edition of the game.

Any ideas?

Thank you.

Someone? Anyone?

Need to know :

What is the game ?
What spec is the laptop ?
Do you get any error messages or other symptoms ?

In general laptops are not good when it comes to playing games, and some games have significantly hiked up their minimum requirements in the last year or so.

We have to subscribe to rockstar/games and a microsoft link too - we haven't done this - will that work and will it cost money?

GTA IV - it's massively demanding of the most powerful desktop systems, it'll run like a slideshow on a laptop if it works at all, get your money back.
