The Catalyst set is the contains the driver for your video which was the driver you needed to update :p To update DX 9c go to Microsoft's web site search for Direct X then download and install DX 9c. Hinterland needs both video drivers from at least mid 2008 and DX 9c to run properly but it also nee...

Doubt that anything you do will allow this game to run on a netbook. They are not intended to be gaming computers. CotN is very demanding on processor and video cards both of which are the weak points on netbooks.

Ok first your Recovery drive is not a virtual drive it's in fact a partition used to Recover your system. You do need to install DX 9 from Microsoft's web site not the one on your cd. You need to install all the patches to bring the game up to date. If those things don't solve your problem then it m...

Sorry what error? Ati cards need all the drivers including the control panel. Try going into safe mode to completely uninstall the orginial drivers and software related to the video card. Reboot then install the modified drivers.

Ok the reason the driver date didn't change is that you have to uninstall the drivers currently on your system. Reboot then install the modified drivers. Sorry that I didn't include those steps ;)

There are several issues that need to address to get the game to run on your system. Your video drivers are too old to fix that since laptop drivers aren't updated by Dell is to download a program called Ati mod tool and the latest video drivers from Ati. Then follow the instructions for the mod too...

Ati doesn't manufacture their own cards any more and even when they did they were only available in North America. Since AMD bought Ati all Ati cards are built off the referrance designs by other companies. When I use to build computers from barebones systems I use buy from United Micro. They build ...

Edited for content: Since I don't tear laptops apart my knowledge of the insides are a little shaky. But considering the size and power demands of new video cards it's doubtful that you could find a card that would fit in a laptop case. Which is why most video card manufactures make cards like the m...

You should be able to change the video card since you have experience taking laptops apart and putting them back together running ;) The main thing you would need to know is weather the video card is AGP( it appears to be a agp with shared memory as well as on board memory) or PCI-E. But what would ...

Amun Nefer you will need to double check the hardware specs for your system since eSata is very different from USB as firewire is different from the other two though the plugs look much alike. The reason I don't recommend NAS is that Raid doubles the cost because to get a 2tb you would need to get 2...

My pennies worth about a 2tb external hard drive. Alot depends on the type of connections available on your laptop. If you have firewire and/or eSata that will give you the faster transfer rate then USB2. Western Digital makes a great external hard drive that comes in 2tb it's a bit high running abo...

The game can not be played if you were able to change to DX 8 because the game was not designed to work with DX 8. If you can find DX 8 the only way you could install it would be to use the DX remover (which can make a mess of a system). Then install DX 8.
