Yeah, I now realise that laptops are the WORST for gaming. I remember trying to run sims. My laptop virtually blew up. But, I have freed up some space on my C: drive. I have 117GB on it. I originally only had 10GB free. I have managed to uninstall ST:Legacy and have freed up 30G. Dunno whats hogging the rest, though.. :/

Video: NVIDIA GeForce 7000M
Processor: Amd Athlon 64x2 Dual-Core processor TK-57, ~1.9Ghz

Is that the info necessary?

Am looking into a cooling tray.. I am quite worried about my laptop at the moment. For about 6 months, when it's working hard, my fan makes a really loud and annoying noise. I've tried looking up what to do to get rid of it.. so far, no luck.
I hate to say this, but, the minimun spec GPU for STO is a 7950GT. In comparing the specs of your 7000M GPU and the 7950GT series:

7000M specs here (link)

7950GT series specs here (link)

I honestly don't think your 7000M will display STO well enough for you to play it on that laptop.

I'd say try the demo and see how it runs for you, but I wouldn't be surprised if it doesn't even manage to come up; or if it does, it'll be a slideshow. Good luck.
