    System requirements for a game

    I am pretty rubbish when it comes to tech so please bare with me.

    I have downloaded a game without checking system requirements. The main issue is that the game requires at least 2GB of Video Memory. I have checked this and I have over 2GB but on MS store it says it cannot detect hardware. Am I doing something wrong or is there something in settings that I haven't done?

    I am trying to play this game on a laptop but still should work.

  3. System restarts while accessing games from Steam on Windows 10

    Hi Alex,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community and being part of Windows 10.

    I understand your concern about accessing the games using Steam on Windows 10. We will help you with this issue.

    Do let us know the following to assist you better with this issue:

    • What is the make and model of your device?
    • Have you installed all the pending updates and driver updates on your device?
    • Have you checked with the game compatibility and system requirements to access the games?

    Try few of the below troubleshooting steps and check if it helps.

    I suggest to check with the system requirements to play the game.

    Step 1: As you have already installed Steam in compatibility on Windows 10, I suggest to install the games in compatibility mode and check if it helps.

    Follow the steps to install in Compatibility mode:

    • Download the updated gaming software from the manufacturer's website.
    • Right click the gaming software
      installation file and select Properties then tap or click the
      Compatibility tab.
    • Place a check in the Run this program in compatibility mode for: box.
    • Tap the drop down box and select a previous operating system, then tap or click
    • Try installing the game and check.

    Step 2: Update Graphics Driver.

    Download the latest drivers from manufacturer's website, try to install them manually and check if it helps.

    • Press Windows key + X key when you are at desktop.
    • Select Device Manager.
    • Expand Display Adapter.
    • Right click on the Display Adapter and click on
      Update driver software.
    • Click on Browse my computer for driver software and click on
      Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer.
    • Follow on-screen instructions.

    Hope it helps. Reply to the post with an updated status of this issue for further assistance.

    System requirements for a game

    Windows 10 1709 System Restore problems...

    That seems to be an attempt at Option 2 in the tutorial, which requires you to
    a. Boot to a command prompt (Did you?)
    b. You then seem to be mixing steps 3,4 and 5, thus your command is incorrect.

    I suggest Option 1 is easier.

    If you still have problems, please repost listing each specific step and saying which option from the tutorial you are using. Thanks.
