I bought Guitar Hero III (PC version) for my daughter. when she tried to upload it on our LT (hp pavilion zv5000), it didnt work b/c, among other reasons: we have Windows XP (not XP SP2), not the correct video card, etc. this did not occur to me when I bought it for her (now u know her friend's play station version & really loved it.

After comparing those major factors, I'm afraid her laptop is not capable of playing the game. Those graphics are really holding you back. You might want to see if you can return the game (but from past experience, someplaces don't like returning computer games because of people making illegal copies and what not) unless you have another computer you can put it on.
You could always try seeing if you can turn the graphics settings down in the game, but still I don't think the laptops graphics can even handle everything on low settings.
Aspyr thinks the average user has a Super PC, and decided to make somewhat of an 'emulator' to easily port over GH3 to the PC. You can't take it back, and Aspyr will not refund your money... but there is hope!
Hi I was wondering if any Guitar is compatible with any GH Game. The guitar I want to get says its only compatible with GH1,2,3. I was told that all GH games should work with nearly all the guitars out there today.
