It has everything to do with the computer your trying to run it on, and nothing to do with Win 7. Actually, 7 is far better than XP. I'd imagine half or better of your problem is trying to run it with onboard video. Goobergump's problem is directly related to having an old video card. Not much different (if at all) than your problem.

You should read the posts above yours, where everyone is recommending to run it in DX9 instead of DX10/11. Also, do yourself the favor of looking into a decent video card if your planning on gaming.

Nvidia GeForce 7025 nForce 630a
I admit I don't know a lot about computers but I know enough to say that my graphics card should be able to run Dragon Age 2 on low graphics.

Think about it a little : my old computer was 7-8 years old and it didn't get modified in those years. It was able to run Dragon Age 2 on medium graphics perfectly.

When I bought my new computer I was hoping I could actually fully enjoy Dragon Age 2 and hopefuly run the highest graphics on it. Though it appears there are some issues going on with Directx 11 and all that so I thought *: Bah whatever, I'll just run it on medium graphics and now it's so never gonna' lag.
I was wrong. I can barely even move after I loaded the game.

Would it be possible that a GeForce 7025 is worst than previous GeForce cards for gaming?

your video card is not made for gaming, and will struggle with anything made in the last 15 years.

I believe the latest official nVidia drivers are known to be slow in Dragon Age. The beta drivers should help.

^This. Legionnist: A GeForce 7025 would have a hard time running anything gaming wise. Much less something like DA2, even on the lowest settings and forced to DX9.

Everything is on slow-motion, it's horrible. The EA dragon screen goes at a very normal and lagless speed but when the menu comes up, everything is just UBER slow like goobergump said.

I, too, reinstalled my drivers and everything and nothing seems to work. I guess Windows 7 is just pure crap after all.
I have played Dragon Age 2 on my Windows 7 laptop and my custom built PC...
there is nothing wrong with Windows 7. Period. Just because you don't know what you are doing, does not mean that Windows 7 is the problem.

Thread Starter 
Thanks guys, rep added, and one question remains. Why does my card run fine in xp, but slow and laggish on windows 7? Maybe because of the extra features 7 utilizes? I've made a thread about pulling the trigger for a 5770, but just curious as why xp ran DA2 better. Thanks again.

ps. xp = 1440x900 medium aa/af off -> smooth
w7 = dx9 800x600 low graphics work fine
