Is that a 32 bit or 64 bit system you are using? It works fine on my Vista 32 bit but have heard of compatability issues with the 64 bit.

No description of the graphics accelerator. I am running PT on a 64bit version of Vista with a wide screen resolution with no problems.

would be great if you could update us where you graphics are concerned. Maybe not even video RAM can be your issue, as I see your trying to run the game on a laptop :S

According to Dell, the laptop comes with http://www.dell.com/content/pr...=us&l=en&s=dhs&cs=19 (http://www.dell.com/content/products/productdetails.aspx/xpsnb_m1330?c=us&l=en&s=dhs&cs=19) (click on Tech Specs):
Intel® Integrated Graphics Media Accelerator X3100
Like most onboard graphics chipsets, it is not that good for playing games. If you try the lowest settings it MAY work but don't count on it. Check out some of these benchmarks for it- even for an onboard chipset it is not that great.
3DMark 05 in comparison
Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 500 (min) 150
ATI Radeon Xpress 200M 587
NVIDIA GeForce Go 6150 616
ATI Radeon Xpress 1150 633
Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) X3100 797
ATI Radeon Xpress X1200 839
NVIDIA GeForce Go 6400 900
NVIDIA GeForce Go 6200 900
ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4870 X2 (max) 19550
The following benchmark values are average Frame rates that were achieved with strong CPUs and enough main memory. Some games may not be playable with low end specifications and a X3100 graphics card (like only 512 MB RAM or a slow Celeron M CPU).
F.E.A.R.: 640x480, min/min: 40 fps -> fully playable
Doom 3: 640x480, min: 8 fps -> not playable
Unreal Tournament 2003: 1024x768, high: 40 fps -> playable
Quake 3 Arena: 1024 x 768, high: 80 fps -> fully playable
Battlefield 2: 800x600, Low Quality: 28 fps -> playable
Company of Heroes: 800x600, Low Quality: 35 fps -> playable
Far Cry: 800x600, Low Quality; 30 fps -> playable
Half Life 2, Episode 1: 800x600, Low Quality: 35 fps -> playable
Half Life 2, Lost Coast: 800x600, Low Quality: 18 fps -> not playable
Supreme Commander: 1024x768: 10 fps -> not playable
The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion: 800x600: 30 fps -> playable

I had a error when I clicked on the desktop Icon which was created when I installed Pandora Tomorrow on Vista. I managed to get the game to work by going into the Splinter Cell game folder, selecting Offline folder and then opening System folder, scroll down the lists of files until you see a Splinter Cell2 Icon, using this icon to run the game worked for me.
