Hi TR fans!

I installed the demo. First the game loaded with much laggggg. Than Lara showed signs of live and after a while I was able to move her around. Let Lara jump in the water and........ black screen. My laptop dropped dead :)

The Dell XPS1710 laptops are notoriously hot. I know. But it seems the demo just asked too much of my video card so the whole system came to an emergency stop.

I have not yet tried to start the demo with lesser settings but I will and if you're interested I'll post the results.
