Games crash on GMA 950.

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
So, I got this laptop with a Celly M 1.46ghz and a GMA 950. So I try loading KOTOR 2 on it. It installs fine and everything, and it works fine when I start it up, but right when I start playing, it crashes. This card should be able to run a 3 year old game on low.

I have all the latest drivers for the GMA 950 and the game is patched to the latest version. I am also having similar issues with BF2.


I would really appreciate if someone could help, thanks.

well I was browsing the interwebz and it appears that other people are having the same problem. It seems to stem from the fact that the GMA 950 uses shared memory.

Does anyone know some hax to get it working?

hmmm...my brothers friend had the same issue! I don't know what it could be but it's weird!

You should save some money for when the external graphics cards come out

I never got anything to really run on my GMA 950, even with 2GB of RAM and a dual-core Intel. It just isn't meant to be I think.

did you look on intels exception/bug list.

They have a list of games that have random glitches on their graphics.

However I'm not sure if thats one of them

Yeah the ATI integrated graphics are great, the GMa 90 runs most things well (plays BF 1942 maxed @ 1280x800) but it just has a problem with a few games...
