If it is a laptop ,then i believe it will indeed be an ati mobility.
all i can find about graphics card specs is this.
Card 16- Bit,Graphics Card 64 MB ,Graphics Card (Direct X 9 Compatible).
Unless it specifically says that this card is not compatible on the game case,then i would say your card can run it.
You could always download the demo first to see if it will run as it,s only 40mb.

ok, ive been found some more information on this game that i wanted, ill point out some.
its says pentium 4 processor for the game, mine is a amd turion 64 mobile processor, will that work?????

The make of processor doesn't matter, what does matter id the speed of the processor. If its fast enough then it will run it, if not it won't.

In my opinion the game manufacturers don't exactly tell the whole truth with their specs. I think if a game has minimum spec XXXX and thats what your computer is you're wasting your time trying it, if you are a bit above the minimum then it maybe fine.

Desperate Housewifes game is meant to need a MINIMUM 1.4 ghz processor, a DVD drive, 256mb RAM and a 128mb graphics card. And this to me means it would probably need something like 1.8 ghz processor or above and 512mb RAM and a half decent 128mb graphics card.

I think even if the rest of your laptop more than meets the specs the problem might be the graphics.

I would do as suggested and see if theres a demo and if there is download it and see if it runs. At least then you would half an idea about the full game.
