My name is Richard; I work for Dell's Online Community Outreach group here in Round Rock, Texas. I have played the game Rise of Nations and know that the video card in your portable should handle it just fine. You may just need to update the video drivers. You can go to this link download and install the video driver.

If this does not assist with playing the game, you may need to consult with the game developer for further requirements. These requirements may be Windows or DirectX updates. Good luck with you game!
