This question already has an answer here:

Is there any command i should use to do this or am i just out of luck? have looked at Jupiter but it seems to be obsolete. Is there another program i could install? If so please tell me the name of it...

Also, I am trying to do this so I can game on my laptop again. I am trying to play Borderlands The Pre Sequel. Not sure if that information will help, but I will add it just in case.

  1. Jupiter is not supported
  2. I have no idea what i am doing.

(What do I have to do to submit this question!?!)
