Windows 7 Benchmark crashingFollow

Been trying to run this on my HP G60 Notebook PC with a 64-bit Operating System and every time I try running it, it crashes, doesn't give any form of a report, just says it crashed and closes the program, I've tried running it in compatibility mode and it doesn't seem to work :/ is this a sign saying my laptop sucks to much to be able to play FFXIV if it can't even run the benchmark?

I've successfully run the benchmark on Windows 7 x64, so that's probably not it.

However, looking at the specs on that model laptop, I'd say that IF you can play FF14 on it, you won't be able to play it very well.

If you're seriously looking to play high end games on a laptop, the key ingredient you need to look for is a video card that's NOT integrated with the system board. This is harder to find than you think and tends to make the laptop more expensive, but it's the only real way to do it without running into very very serious performance problems.

Good luck

Adding your specs usually helps Smiley: smile

The specs aren't great, but they don't seem too low to even run the benchmark. Try updating your graphics drivers? Although I'd have no idea where to find those particular ones. Also try updating DirectX

I can't get it to run on my Win7 64 bit Desktop (instantly says it is not responding) but it runs fine on my Win7 64 Bit laptop...

I don't know why either. Very strange indeed.

I had the same problem. It worked when I updated my Radeon drivers though.

I had the same problem. I had to update my ATI catalyst and the drivers to 10.6 to get it to run. Also it will not run if you do not have the last version of DirectX.

I don't have a radeon video card, it's an intel chipset, and I updated it, and also updated DirectX... so yea, I don't know what's up :/ but yea, hopefully I get the PC before XIV comes out as I'm preordering the collectors edition :/

I could be wrong on this but any Intigrated video cards seems to crash the benchmark. NOt all of them of course but seems to be a common thing.

*edit* my spellign still sucks! oops spelled spelling wrong...

You definitely will not get anywhere with an integrated video card, don't even bother trying. You need a dedicated card and a good one at that to get a respectable score.

My integrated Radeon 4200 didn't crash the benchmark. I scored like a 200 though, compared to my 5770 which gave me a 4000. (Same processor, RAM, OS, obviously).

I wouldn't even bother running it on an integrated card unless you're purely curious to see how low you can get it.

Mikhalia: and FWIW, my posts are 95% helpful, informative, or funny.
Mikhalia: only 5% or less of my posts are utter crap.
Tyapex: 393 posts of utter crap...
Mikhalia: Sounds about right.

Take it as a sign that you are not meant to play FFXVI on that laptop.

Trust me, you wouldn't want to, even if the benchmark DIDN'T crash on you.

Why? The big problem is this:
Video Graphics Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 4500M

Intel GMAs are simply unacceptable for modern gaming. The 4500m, while technically DirectX 10 compliant, nevertheless has a pathetically slow 400 MHz clock frequency, with an anemic 10 unified shader pipelines.

It's 3D benchmark scores are roughly the same as a Mobility Radeon 9700, which is a scaled-down version of a now five-generations-old GPU.

It struggles to run most recent games (as in games made within the last 5 to 8 years) at 10-15 FPS. It's generally not even considered usable for playing WoW.

It is ridiculously far below FFXIV's minimum requirement.

To put it in benchmark score terms - consider the fact that the Radeon HD 4350, which is obscenely more powerful than the GMA 4500m, only gets about 550 on the benchmark... on low.
