Your biggest issue that will likely not be able to be fixed with that particular laptop is the "onboard video". You MUST have an independent gpu in a system to run games these days.

You problem is system does not meet the lowest requirements for graphics. The lowest noted is Intel 4000. I have never seen any spec on a 4100 so that looks like a typo. The 4000 came out April 24, 2012. And it is still a VERY slow and weak video option.

Greetings MasterUtlaga,

Specifically your graphics hardware does not have enough dedicated memory as your machine has 64MB where the requirement is 256MB.

The System Requirements are as follows:

Processor:
AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual-Core 4000+ or better
Intel Core 2 Duo 2.0GHz or better

Operating System:
Windows XP Service Pack 3 or later

RAM:
Windows XP: 1.5GB RAM
Windows Vista and Windows 7: 2GB RAM
Note: PCs using a built-in graphical chipset are recommended to have 2GB of RAM.

Star Wars: The Old Republic requires a video card that has a minimum of 256MB of on-board RAM as well as support for Shader 3.0 or better.

Examples include:
ATI X1800 or better
nVidia 7800 or better
Intel 4100 Integrated Graphics or better

DVD-ROM drive 8x speed or better (required for installation from physical editions only) Internet connection required to play.

Thank you for playing Star Wars: The Old Republic

It's more a factor of memory. Some onboard graphics with shared memory will work better than others due to configuration. Those with which a portion of system memory is set aside strictly for the GPU will run far better than those which don't.

Sorry there is not way to upgrade the video card with that laptop. The only upgrade Samsung notes is memory.

If you want to stay Samsung the Series 7 17.3" Notebook
http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-Series.../ref=de_a_smtd

Also looked up newegg.com but they are out of stock there and cost $100 more.
