  33. I have installed bluestacks but it says that your display drivers are out-of-date, i have installed latest version but it does not run,,,,,plzz help me,,,,,mine laptop core i3 @2.4 ghz 1 gb ram and 800mb display

  34. hey im having a problem i download bluestacks it works just when i download a game and try to play it never shows i hear audio no display though help

  35. For all that wants to get Bluestack working on mobile comuter – well… buy a tablet. Bluestack do not work with old drivers and you can't update GPU drivers on mobile computers as You can only install drivers from manufacturer as AMD and nVdia both not allow You to install native drivers. So – You have brand new lapot – good for You – i MIGHT be able to use Bluestack for… some time. If You have 1-2 year laptop, Your manufacturer probably stoped updating drivers for your model long ago, and Bluestack WONT work.
    Solutions:
    1. Buy a tablet
    2. Make AMD and nVidia allow You to install latest drivers (maybe bomb facories or smth)
    3. Make Bluestack work around problem with drivers so it plays even on old drivers – well thats doable as they want to make a profit from it so if they cant guarantee that You will be albe to use it on laptop after You paid them… You will make them refound.

  36. Please help me!
    It says my physical memory should be atleast 2GB when I use it, so I closed all the programs, but still it repeats the message with 'NULL.'

  37. If you are facing such issue instead of using the play store in it , you just download the apk files from other sources on internet and then install them on blue-stacks. This is how i do 🙂

  38. All of are working in there best form, anyway I have tried all emulators but in them one problem is there i.e. "How to install apk data manuly ?" I mean I have moved on in a village area and there is only 2G network conection that is why I have download "Shadow gun" compressed and it was with no apk file so I search it in google an download it not a big deal all i came to this that no manuly so anybody,somebody,body please help me. And one more thing android live is windroy and it is the best for me it will be more helpful if you give tutorial for windroy.
