Rebuilt Lenovo; not compatible w/ AC?

Not applicable
I have a little desktop Lenovo that I was looking at picking up inexpensively, but;
AC12 wont load from my disc (with Visuall C++ patches installed). It gets to 1% then thinks it's done. The log file says something about 'JVM not found'.
And AC17 trial won't load. It just gives me a javascript line at the bottom of the Explorer window.

I suspect the graphics card is not compatible. Am I correct? And if so, I'm hoping the graphics card isn't 'built-in'...

Here are the specs;
Windows 7
Intel Core 2 Duo CPU;
E7300 @ 2.66 GHz
4 GB Ram
64 bit
Graphics; Intel Q45 / Q43 Express Chipset

Sounds like a JAVA issue.
Uninstall JAVA and then reinstall with the version on the 12 installation disc.
Once you have Archicad installed hen you can update JAVA if you need to.

Thanks so much Barry.
That cleared it right up.
Everything seems to be working great!
