Hi!
I own a compaq laptop. My graphics card is an ATI IGP 340m. I have unable to find out if this card is compatible with Tomb raider Angel of Darkness. In other words, does this graphic card support T&L.
Thanks
Sally

Have you tried the ATI website? They should tell you. I have never heard of that thing. ;)

Run DxDiag. Then check the Video tab. Post back here what the exact name of the card is. There isn't, to my knowledge, and "ATI IGP 340m" card.

RedLegg is right. I believe your card isn't a "card"... check out if it is onboard. If it is, and your laptop is a lil' old, it may not support T&L

Ok, thanks. I'll do that. I just got this computer about a month ago and I don't know much about them, so bear with me.:)

Hi guys & gals!

I have a Samsung P10 laptop with a 32mb Mobility Radion 7500 AGP (LW) I ask the very same question does my Radeon support TnL? I have checked my dxdiag, but the report dosnt show any info about TnL. I also have been in contact with ATI Technical Support, but they are not being very supportive infact I dont think they even know if the hardware supports TnL as they answered my question with get intouch with your laptop manufacturer!:mad:

Any Info will be greatly appreciated!
Dean.

I am not sure, but from what I know TCL and T&L are similar enough to make it work.
