This website is also known as System Requirements Lab.



System Requirements Lab does not work for me anymore… instead of getting the results like I used to, all the results are the same that I get for every game: Unknown

What’s the deal??? I allow the applet to download and run, yet still Unknown is the result…..

I wish I could remember the name of the other website that could check to see if your computer would run games… it is just like system requirements lab and at least it works!!



I have the same problem as the above poster; I keep getting Unkown for my results. I tried it on a slew of different games: games I knew I could run, games I wasn’t sure about, new games, and old games. Is there any explanation for this, or anyway that this can be remedied?


no oblivion

it has no elder scroll games like oblivion


no oblivion

i take that back… its under T for The elder scrolls



Also see Same as can u run it Enjoy!!!



I get a message that the ActiveX contains a Trojan “Zlob”.
I use Bullguard Internet Security.




if you’re using firefox use opera
if u are using opera try firefox



I ran this test and I got Unknown for both The Sims 2 and The Sims 3. I know my system runs the second one but the result was still Unknown. Is there another site that can analyze my system and tell me if my pc meets the min. requirements to run a certain game?



will it ever be possible to use this on windows 7?
i waited for like 5 minutes while the text says: ‘it will take 1 to 2 minutes’. then i discovered that it not runs on Windows 7. :S

anyway; is there an other site how does support windows 7 enterprize?



Thanks for heads up ;-)
