    If you can get into the game, turn down all of the graphics... or save up for the new card like you saved up for the game...

    The OP has a really old pc which has onboard video that doesn't meet the min requirements is my guess... probably doesn't support hardware texture and lighting.

    Go to settings, turn on low res textures.

    Best bet is to turn on the "Low Quality Renderer". That will remove all the complex graphics from the game and give you the best shot at being able to play without having to upgrade.

    You can enable the LQR by clicking the checkbox on the Advanced Video Settings page. If you can't get into the game to edit the settings, you can try editing the Rift.cfg file and looking for a line that starts with "LegacyTenderer". If it is being set to "False" you can change it to "True" and see if that helps. If it's already set to "True" then you may be out of luck.

    There's your problem, you're running onboard graphics with 256MB of shared RAM. That is not nearly powerful enough to run any high-end game, and trust me... Rift is demanding where graphics are concerned.

    Protip: Check the system requirements on the game case before purchasing to ensure your PC is capable of running the game.

    Really depends on what open slots of what type you have in that computer.

    you need a bare minimum agp slot open (will run a very low end card but not well at all) or an open pcie slot.

    A prebuilt hp probly has neither unfortunately.

    As others have pointed out, you should have read the system specs or at least gone to one of the "will my pc run this game" sites that check your hardware

    I hate to say it, but you can't run Rift on this system. Everything is outdated and far from ideal for gaming, but the fact that you have onboard graphics with 256MB of shared ram means that Rift won't even run on your computer, even on the very lowest settings.

    You could probably get a card that could run Rift (albeit on low settings) for around 80 bucks or so; however, if gaming is your thing, you really need to start saving up for a better overall machine.
