    I've worked on that laptop before and it is a very nice one. :)

    It should run City of Heroes just fine, with the exception it has a mobile graphics chipset. This means it probably has specialized video drivers.

    You should try updating these video drivers from your manufacturer or download the modified Forceware drivers which allow installation on a laptop.
