It specifically says it requires a newer operating system to run. AKA, Your laptop sucks, and we refuse to be associated with it.
I think my stats say I have xp service pack 1
By the way, your Vista is outdated.

Download and install the latest service pack for your OS:

Vista is on SP 2 + all other updates. Speccy reports you have SP 1

This should fix it.
Trying it now.
This thread is great, thanks to all you knowledgeable folks for posting. Since my knowlege of computers basically extends to being able to point and click: Any thoughts on if these specs will run D3? I am not a pro gamer (obviously) I just want to know if my poor old PC has a shot at limping through this.

Operating System: Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium Edition Service Pack 1 (build 6001), 32-bit
Processor: AMD Phenom(tm) 8450 Triple-Core Processor CPU 2.1 GHz
Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce 9300 GE

I ran the "can you run it" program and it says that everything but the video card will work, but when it breaks down the system requirements below (pixel/vertex shader and dedicated video RAM) they are all marked as good to go. Thoughts?

Thanks again
9300 GE can run D3 but it'll be at lowest settings and not that well.
Is my graphics card too weak? nVidia geforce 335 GT
Yes, 335 GT is too weak. It'll run, but don't expect much.
Hi guys, Ive read the thread so far and it looks like i wont be able to play D3 on my pc...(http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01701243&cc=us&dlc=en&lc=en&product=3942022) im going to get a new graphics card, the GT 440 probably, (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814121426) for my pc, because i also cant play SWTOR on this computer. I also went to canyourunit.com and it said i couldnt play on SWTOR because my cpu and graphics sucked. then i tried diablo 3 and it said for minimum, my cpu and graphics card couldnt play either, but on d3 recomended, it said my cpu worked fine.....im confused....so all i want to know is if GT 440 works on my pc for SWTOR and D3, and if my CPU can work or not.

Thanks in advance!
I would recommend buying a Radeon HD 7750 instead. GT 440 won't be that big of an upgrade.
Thanks, on new egg, it costs 10 bucks more, but what the heck, it comes with Dirt Showdown. Thanks, I'm going to be shooting some monstas soon :D
And yes, your CPU is bit underpowered for today's CPU-bound games. :X
So do I need a new CPU? Or can I last a few more years with this to play?
And If I have to, what CPU should I get?
Bit underpowered, but if you feel the games are running fine, then you don't have to get a new one.

You have to replace your CPU + motherboard + RAM if you were to get a new CPU.
Ok, thanks, I'll try, and if it still doesn't work, I'll just build a new computer. But thanks, I hope this works :D

Bought this last year and I cant try out diablo for few weeks but I was wondering is this laptop good enough to run diablo with medium/max settings?
I expect high settings and run pretty well.
Would an ATI Radeon HD 4350 run this game on 1024 res? I know, weak card, not expecting miracles here.
