    'On-board- graphics cards are not supportrd by this game and arent officially supported by most modern games. Even your 4000 series HD chipset is below the minimum spec for the game. Hopefully with the Unity upgrade that is meant to be coming (any update devs?) some optimisation(TM) will come to make GPU processing better on lower spec machines however they have said previously that laptop support (as these typically have on-board chips) is not a priority at this time until the desktop version is complete.
    For now i would play in your 4000 HD series laptop with the lowest possible settings - depending on CPU you might be able to squeeze 15FPS but your better bet is to look at a hardware upgrade

    well my desktop is a Sony Vaio All in one, with a on-board chip, is why i am wondering

    My old laptop had a 4400HD intel chip which isnt officially supported but allows you to run the game (just)
    Ive noticed a big improvement since upgrading to a laptop with dedicated graphics i can now run on maximum graphics where i could barely run with everything turned down on my old laptop.
    I hope that older systems and laptops become supported due to the nature of the people who play tycoon games not necessarily being hardcore gamers and unlikely to have powerful rigs (although to be honest still issues on them too)
