Default VRC Game

Hey guys, I'm trying to get the VRC game and am having problems. It says that I need a graphics card that has T&L Technology. I don't think my laptop does (Dell B130).

Is there anyway to either upgrade my current laptop, bypass the need for t&l, or upgrade my current card to accept it?

Thanks in advance...

just update your graphics card.

if your card dont have T&L either its crap or very old, either way its not worth having.

This doesn't apply to this forum in a single bit. Hope it gets moved.

Upgrading a laptop video card...
Your mother board must have a AGP or PCI-E slot available to upgrade, then you need to unlock the bios in some cases to disable the on-board video card.

Do you have the latest direct x, along with the latest driver?
Unless someone made a hotfix for that card, there's no way to bypass it.. As far as I know.

T & L came out 4 years ago or so. In others words, time to upgrade. In regards to up upgrading the laptop video card, that percent went to a 100% no.

This game is dead to me until the electric/carpet version comes out. Pushing those nitro cars around the track gets old after a while.

It looks like fun, but neither of my computers can run it and I don't feel like spending the $$$ to put in a new graphics card in my viao.

Hehe, turn the sound off, it will be like driving electric with rubbers!

BTW, this game works just fine on my Apple Macbook Pro (2.4GHz, 2GB Ram, 256MB Video Card) running Winblows XP SP2 with GFX turned all the way up.

transform and lighting technology came out a long time ago, before the orignal xbox. Basically, any video card in the last 5 years or so would be able to run it VRC. You can try to update the video drivers, but chances are if your laptop can't run it. Thats because you can't use a technology that you do not have. I would just say forget it as the high price probably doesn't justifiy VRC. Its a neat but feels like a bargin ben game.
