You could barely (?) run AVA with those specs. SF2... I doubt you can run it well. Minimum for SF2 is 2 GB of RAM. Intel chipsets were never designed for the gaming world. I highly doubt you can play much on this laptop. I assume this laptop is like 5-6 years old?
I think having a lot programs in the background (including stuff in tray, etc.) could cause some things not to run. But for Ignite to not run... well that is odd in my view.
Solutions: Reinstall Windows and everything. If that don't work.. get a better laptop/desktop. If it is around 5-6 years old, it won't be able to do a lot compared to the time you got it new.
