  1. 6 months ago i got this laptop from my parents, it is kinda a hand me down from them

    here are the specs:
    Windows XP Professional version 2002 Service Pack3
    Intel Core 2 Duo CPU T8100 @ 2.10Ghz
    0.99GB of Ram
    2 HDD 50gb & 100GB
    2 Mobile Intel 965 Express Chipset Family

    the first thing i did was to install Warcraft III to play DotA, after i installed and cracked it i ran the program, but what happens is that after starts as soon as the menu shows, it hangs then the laptop blue screens. i kept trying and trying but it didnt just work so i gave up.

    after that i tried other games, i was able to install and play the following without any problems: NSFU2, NFSMW, CS 1.6, HoN, LoL, GTA San Andreas, NBA2008 and Sims3 although the last one i stopped playing because it was lagging really bad

    after i finished those games i wanted to try my luck on warcraft III again so i installed it- didnt work. tried copying a working copy from a friend and copy+paste it-didnt work. same thing happens

    i tried updating my video cards but it said that the one currently installed is newer than the on im gonna install(SS provided)
    i patched warcraft III to 1.26a(latest)
    im gonna attach 2 Screenshots and few of the latests minidumps

    i hope to hear from you soon, im really desperate :(

    I doubt techspot helps people with cracked games. As for your hardware it looks like more then enough to run war3. Since your game is cracked I bet your os is to, get a linux based os for free. try to keep the laptop well ventilated, point a fan at it that might help

    p.s. a cracked windows killed my bros computer i aint offerin no more advice
