    Find out about the video card - make sure it has more than 128 Mb of RAM. Look at the top of the screen when you first boot up - it will show the card and the RAM on it,

    The game spec says min 128 Mb RAM - without that it is not worth checking the rest as video performance is absolutely critical.

    You need
    1) a little patience. I told you how to check the card you have. Why not do that first?
    2) a local shop you can take it to if this process is too slow for you.

    Try looking at display - I still recommend you restart the machine and look at the opening screen which should tell you all you need to know about your graphics card.

    RIght click on Desktop, go to properties, click settings tab, now go to ADVANCED, on the bottom right.

    You will see a tab labled " Adapter"

    copy the information in there to us.



    AND.........your CPU sucks btw, get a new one, it wont run that game for sure.

    Please put your System Specs in your Profile

    If you have a proprietory computer like Dell; HP; Acer etc, please manually write this in the mobo field (ie Dell Dimension 3100 - as an example)

    Waiting for specs ...

    I think it is wiser not to have other support replies until runescape does the above.

    Download and run Everest Home (it is free):

    http://www.majorgeeks.com/download4181.html

    Once you download it, click on it and let it install and then run it from the icon on your desktop and then click on 'Display' then on 'GPU', then go to the VERY top of the screen and click on 'report', then 'quick report-gpu' and then 'plain text' and save it then go to C:/programs/lavalys and open that folder then open Everest Home folder and then reports and click on the report which will open it in a text editor and then use your mouse to highlight ALL the 'registers' stuff at the bottom of the report and delete it and then save that file again and then copy and paste it to here.

    This has nothing to do with the graphics card.
    This is the advice about what everest needs to run - ie - all versions on windows and it is freeware so you do not have to pay for it.
    Click on the download button and then run when offered the choice.
    I still think
    A) it is easier to check on the boot screen
    B) if you are not sure about any of this you should take it to a shop
    C) your CPU is probably not up to the game anyway.

    Although I'm some what hesitant to help you...

    Click Start => Run => Type "dxdiag.exe" => Click run => Click yes on the dialogue box that appears => Open the Display tab at the top of the screen.

    It should give you some details about your graphics card there, including VRAM.

    If you would like help beyond this, try to follow the simple instructions several people have already suggested before you get impatient and rude.
