  1. hi.i need an help for playing coc and installing blue stacks. for using this two things the pc need to insert Graphic Card or to update your PC’s Graphic Card Driver. and also one thing its effect any of pc?

    • Hey Anas,

      There are some workarounds which can help you to install the BlueStacks on your computer without any graphic card and only 1GB of Ram.

      But, I don’t recommend it as you won’t be able to use BlueStacks properly (or even normally) on that computer, it will hang A LOT!

      So my suggestion will be – try upgrading your PC otherwise try using any other BlueStacks Alternative android emulator.

      Hope it helps. 🙂
