im having the same problem
and have the Intel R Graphics Media Accelerator HD

i've been able to play WoW, battlegrounds and huge raids with absolutely no problems
this computer is a year old and for me to not be able to play this game for a reason like this is disgusting to me.
lol it has to at least be fixable

same issue here i hit play or if im lucky see the intro cut scene i have the same Intel video but i find it hard to imagine with an Intel5 3 Ghz onboard i cant run this game when skyrim runs fine.. We are at a loss here and me personally am starting to lose faith in Bioware we have recieved very little help and i havent been able to play since thursday night. I played till lvl 10 that evening then my pc blew up ( A pc i might add was way past its sell by date yet it ran OK)later friday morning. I bought a brand new PC and installed the game from disc and i get nothing 3x installs neurotically checking updates and drivers i have already updated. we need answers!

My driver isnt upto date, however I am unable to download the most recent one because it hasn't been approved by my manufacturer - Acer

BW plz respond.
I'm currently using an Intel 4500 GMA, and the game runs but a very low frame rate. Even with all the settings on low, editing the .ini files and keeping the game in a super tiny resolution (800 x 600), the frame rate is low. Mainly in out door areas that are huge and large indoor areas. There seems to really be no way to control draw distance even editing the ini's.

While integrated cards are not intended for gaming, some of them do meet the Minimum Requirement. Now I don't expect eye candy and omg frame rates but when you meet minimums you shouldn't be getting single digit fps in pvp.

Also there's still that unexplained two swtor.exe's sitting in your task manager, and they both eat tons of cpu / ram. No dev has responded to this on the forums and there's no way to turn off the second exe because if you kill either of them it closes Swtor

It's "playable" but not by much.

too many people have this problem for ALL of our cards to be ****ed up.

I too am using a laptop which works fine on every other game, so my on conclusion is this game is ****ed and someone should fix it...because it's very disappointing
