    Is my graphics card broken?

    I recently downloaded the beta release for Ghost Recon Online.
    the install and updates went through without trouble, and the game runs smooth up until joining a game session.
    right before my character is loaded into the map, I get the following message:

    GDRV_cl_Texture::LoadTextdata() fails to init texture
    File:
    D:/Build/GRO/live-dev/Yeti/engine/GraphicDRiVer/GDRV_Texture.cpp
    line: 144
    Break now?

    and the choices of Ok or cancel.
    my laptop is a Samsung R480, running Windows 7 Home Premium, Service Pack 1
    Processor: Intel core i3 CPU M 330 @ 2.13GHz
    RAM: 4.00 GB (3.80 GB usable)
    system type: 64-bit operating system

    also, it might help to know that i don't use my laptop for gaming very much. aside from LOTR on a cd and minecraft.

    Checked for a driver update? These can fix some issues.

    Where did you get your drivers from? Samsung or Intel

    im not sure.
    all i can find on the samsung website is that it has a blu-ray optical drive and
    Intel GMA 4500MHD Graphic Processor
    i would be happy to look into it further if you any suggestions?

    The Ubisoft website says you need:

    "dedicated Nvidia GPU OR ATI GPU with 1 GB of VRAM minimum"

    Your GMA4500 is none of those things, it's really not made for gaming. I suspect you are well short of the 1GB minimum and it simply won't run.

    is VRAM just video RAM? my original thought was "well i have 4 GB of RAM, surely thats enough for 1 GB of VRAM" and yes that is a real possibility, as my laptop is a few years old. i dont know much about video cards and all that gubbins, but i find it very interesting and love learning anything i can.

    I'd have to agree, Intel graphics chips are generally OK for streaming videos or office use. Nvidia or ATI have a lot more horse power, ideal for gaming or graphic rendering.
