    I just got the Homeworld 2 game for my macbook, and installed it without issue. However, when I tried to run it I got an "unexpected error". I then tried to restart my computer, but now it will not turn on fully (I get a grey screen).

    I checked the system requirements on the box and found that my macbook surpassed each one greatly. How do I 1. get my mac to actually turn on fully now (yes, I tried turning it on in safe mode by holding the power button), and 2. get Homeworld 2 to run on mac.

    Thanks. :)

    Update: Finally got my computer back on, and as it turns out its a video card problem. Is it possible to upgrade a macbook's video card by sending it in somewhere or doing it yourself?

    Thanks again

    The MacBook has an integrated video card soldered on the logic board. There is no way to upgrade the video card, and as far as I know all the new machines ship with nVidia cards.
