Minecraft Compaq dc7900

Compaq dc7900
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)
Hi there, new to posting so apologies if I'm in the wrong area etc. I have a Compaq dc7900 and am trying to play Minecraft PC. My computer won't allow me and I'm assuming I need to update/upgrade something but I'm not sure town would find this out.
Can anyone advise?

Hello @Liverpool4240

 

Hard to say whats happening without knowing the specs of your system. Can you tell me what it has?

 

Also, what do you mean your computer wont allow you to run Minecraft? What is the error message?

It's saying that's it's crashing. Sorry if I'm being vague I have limited computer terminology knowledge. Which specs do you need? I will check the game again and tell you the exact message. Thanks for your help.

Download this file and put it on your desktop for easy access.

On your desktop, right click on it and unzip (extract all) to your desktop.

Open the folder and run Speccy.exe

 

In the window that opens, tell me what it says for...

I suspected your specs as such, but needed you to give me the exact parts.

The only successful upgrade you can do is get a new PC, sorry.

Oh dear! I suspected as much.
We had an old Linux that we changed as our son wanted one that ran on Windows as there were games he wanted to play that Linux wouldn't allow. Weirdly, that one allowed Minecraft!! Stupid question possibly but could we not have something taken from one pc to the other?

Depends on the specs of the other PC and what version of Minecraft it was playing.

Minecraft has upped the requirements as it evolves and upgrades, just like any other program.

 

You know, out with the old - in with the new.

Note that the minimum requirements are just that... Minimum, not recommended.

Minimum specs wont necessarily give a good experience.

 

If you can muster up the cost, a "new" machine will stay relevant for the next 5 years (so to speak).

if you get my meaning.
