    My notebook:

    Dell inspiron 8600
    Intel pentium m 1,7GHz (not quite the same as a pentium 4 1,7 Ghz)
    1GB Ram
    ATI Mobility radeon 9600 pro turbo, (which does not meet the official standard but I've seen post with people saying it works!)

    however,

    I've installed the game and tried to run it, but I only see a black screen...
    I can hear the inro sounds but I don't see anything! When I hit Alt-Tab I can sometimes see the menu for a tenth of a second before returning to my desktop. The menu which i see for a sec when hitting Alt-Tab has loaded normally and is waiting for the key.

    I would say it is the radeon 9600 that fails but since I heared that others can run the game with it I doubt that.

    I have updated my drivers so that can't be it. Anybody has any suggestions?

    I guess that is the one single solution I could have thought of myself :)
    The main problem is that it is a notebook and is therefore not easily updated, and since it is only two years old its a bit early to replace it.

    What I didn't mention, is that I have a quite similar problem with San Andreas Multiplayer, at startup sound and everything works but I can't see anything. However, with SA MP the problem is solved by simply pressing Alt-Tab twice.

    I was thinking that it might be my mediocre resolution (1280 x 800 max).

    try changing your desktop's rez to the lowest it can go and then start up the game, then go to setting and change the video settings to the lowest they can go. As you said it will run but not look to nice :(

    That processor is fine tbh.

    Its your graphics card that isn't supported.
