    Getting an Error “Graphics card doesn’t meet the minimum requirements” in windows 7

    I have a Sony VAIO VPCEB34EN which has a Intel Core i3-370m 2.40 GHz, windows 7 Ultimate(64-bit) with an ATI Radeon HD5470 1743MB graphics card,but when i run games like Dead Space 3,it shows me an error saying the graphics card doesn’t meet the minimum requirements. Also,when i run hitman absolution, a process starts and for some time works but never turns into an application and simply shuts down. My system’s specs are well over the required specs.Other games like AC3 and Crysis 3 run just fine.Please help.

    Your issue with dead space 3 is strange because that video card is capable of running the game. The best course of action would be to ensure that the game is patched and up to date.It would be a good idea to keep your video drivers updated as well.The problem with Hitman:Absolution is a known issue can cane be prevented by turning DEP off through windows.Here’s how you do it,assuming you are using windows 7:
    • Log in as Administrator.
    • Press the “Windows”+”Pause/Break” keys in conjunction and release.
    • This should open the “System” menu.
    • Choose “Advanced system Settings” from the left pane.
    • Approve the user Account Control query(you should be an admin to do this).
    • Click the button “Settings” in the Performance Section.
    • Click the tab “Data Execution Prevention”.
    • Choose either “Turn on DEP for all programs and services except those i select” or “Turn on DEP for essential windows programs and services only to select the optin policy”
    • If you choose “Turn on DEP for all programs and services except those i select”,click Add to add the programs that you do not want to use the DEP feature.
    • Click Ok twice.
    • Restart the computer for the changes to take effect.

    Well your laptop must be able to run the game but for some reason it is not

    Try it by updating your graphics driver and audio driver also install a latest patch availiable for your game

    Hitman absolution can be run by turning off the DEP fro the system settings

    it is a common prroblem in all systems

    1. Click Start, click Run, type sysdm.cpl, and then click OK.

    2.On the Advanced tab, under Performance, click Settings.

    On the Data Execution Prevention tab, use one of the following procedures:
      1. Click Turn on DEP for essential Windows programs and services only to select the OptIn policy.
      2. Click Turn on DEP for all programs and services except those I select to select the OptOut policy, and then click Add to add the programs that you do not want to use the DEP feature.
    1. Click OK two times.
