I was wondering how I can decrease and or increase my specs while ingame to get better drawing rate and FPS and whatnot.
Any help without having to go into my BIOS would be greatly appreciated.
Here's my specs, sorry I'm a bit of a noob still can't get the hang of doing an ingame photo:

Video: 800x600
Aspect Ratio: Auto
Texture Quality: Low
Reflection Resolution:Off
Water Quality: Low
Shadow Quality: Off
Texture: Tri-Linear
View Distance: 1
Detail Distance: 1
Vehicle Distance: 1
Definition: Off
VSync: Off
Auto Config
Benchmark
Resource Usage: 202/114MB



My Computer Specs are as follows:
Processor: Intel ® Core ™ 2 Duo CPU T 5550 @ 1.83GHz 1.83 Hz
RAM, 2.00G
64 Bit OS
Windows 7 Home Premium
Product ID: 00359-OEM-8992867-0010
Again, any help without going into my BIOS and cmd and SafeMode would be greatly appreciated and helpful.
Thanks guys!

Yeah, but we need to know what your graphics adapter is. Either download Speccy or press the Start button and key in dxdiag at the search box.

Well, based on your system specs it looks like you seriously need an upgrade, as both your processor and GPU are a tad too weak to run it.

I had an 8400GS myself and trust me, with that system there's little more that you can do with it.

Could I run a 800GS on my HP?? I think you guys can look up what model I have as I typed in my Product ID... How much would one run me at a local computer repair shop?

The 8400 I mentioned is the one you posted earlier, duh. I think you might as well invest in a new rig if you want to run all your new games properly. Making do with your current system won't cut it much if you ask me.

I'm looking at getting this HP g7-1310us 17.3 inch screen, has about 6 gigs of ram,
not sure if the processor mentioned on it is quad core or not but I was wondering
if it could run IV fairly well. My current can run San Andreas but it's just too damn
big.

Seems legit, but I'd go for a desktop instead. Besides, the HD3000 graphics that laptop has doesn't seem to cut it quite a lot.

With PC, you have to access the normal menu and it's added PC attributes, two in terms of DISPLAY adjustments, normally one found in consoles as well. I would think this is easy to do, but it takes a bit of time, it's not done on the fly, for PC, the process of gaming graphics is intense for the PC handling of data, a console in contrast is geared all toward running game data, a PC is not, no matter how you equip that PC, it's not a game built machine, it's likely to support gaming more then a utilitarian machine, one used for all things, BUT....
Even a "gaming computer" is designed around the same slot expanding ATX style board designs, CPU and GPU as well as any North or Southbridge assigned to addressing hardware portals. The game play is not streamlined when it's disrupted by adjustments
Some small software can run along with game code, but every time something is doing that, it's using the same system resources.

If you're not swayed to go PC over laptop, look for PCIExpress supporting MXM cards. I've made a big deal on what has what, if you Google Acer and MXM, you'll see my postings come up, I'm determined to get more into MXM able laptops in the future. The Asus G73 for example, a very spendy gaming able i7 CPU driven notebook, will cost you $1000 there abouts
