    Ok first off, I have searched for a while to no avail about this problem.

    I have a macbook pro late 2009 with 4gb of ram and a duo core 2.26ghz processor.

    I can run games like killing floor, guild wars, borderlands, etc., at max settings with no performance issues, but i cant run Divinity II at even the lowest settings.

    I'm running windows XP service pack 2 and here's the reading i get with the xp:

    Intel Core 2 Duo
    p7550 @ 2.26GHz
    789 MHz, 2.72 GB of RAM

    Now I see a problem with my RAM right away. And i know that xp can only see up to 3gb or something, but this number seems to change.

    So I kinda have a 2 part problem.

    Any help is greatly appreciated =]

    You won't see all 4 GB of RAM, 64-bit version of Windows is needed.

    As for the game, you can't run it at all or is the performance sluggish (low FPS?).

    EDIT: Just checked the requirements for the game and I'm assuming it's the latter, performance issue and that is a result of the GPU. While the 9400M GPU runs older games well, it isn't suited to run this game even if you lower all your settings - you will still experience low FPS.
