    Bluestack giving some error on my pc(XP), i.e you need 2GB of physical memory.. what’s the solution for this error..??

    • Reply Detlef November 29, 2013 at 12:21 am

      it means you have only either 512MB or 1GB memory in your system and need to upgrade it at least to 2GB

      else bluestack wont run cos of lack of memory

      I think you dont need any other Nitin, Bluestack is more than enough. if you cant install bluestack because of Graphic card then go for Youwave.

    During installation of BlueStacks it showing some error saying that your graphics driver has not been updated. update it first and then try it again. But the problem is that I have no graphics card in my laptop, is it been possible to install this software without graphics card,, if possible kindly tell me the way of installation.

    • Reply jigar Tank November 7, 2013 at 6:35 pm

      Yes, Unfortunately Bluestack Requires graphic card, you cant install it without graphic card.

    • Reply Detlef November 29, 2013 at 12:18 am

      Partha, your laptop may not have a dedicated Graphic Card, but by allmeans it has one integrated then with the processor.
      Go to their website and check for actual drivers, it will work

      My laptop too has no dedicated graphic card, but yet bluestacks runs without any problems

    Bluestacks needs graphics card. How could i install it, i’m not having graphics card. Is there any other software to work with android apps in computer?

    • Reply jigar Tank October 2, 2013 at 11:27 am

      yes bluestack has some problem with graphic cards, yes you can even use Youwave to Run android apps on your pc, the only problem is youwave is not available for free, but you can get it from somewhere if you are smart enough.

      stay connected.
