Computer and video card overmatched maybe?

Crysis 2 has some pretty hefty needs and laptops are generally not up to it.

@yoyoo29
There are 3 different R358 models, and 2 of them have an intel graphics chip. Only one has the ATI.
You can forget playing any modern games with the intel chips. Does your model have the ATI chip?

As @ragingloli and @funkdaddy have said, your laptop likely can’t handle Crysis 2. Check if you have the ATI card, and if you do, try updating your drivers.

Update your graphic card drivers then. If you can find beta drivers on the ati site, use those.
If it still does not work, sometimes the my firewall blocks a game and shows a prompt where you decide if to allow the game’s activity. However you can not see the prompt when the game is in full screen mode. In that case, press alt+tab to switch to desktop to see if there is any pop up from your AV.
It could also be that the game is running in a resolution that is not supported by your screen, in that case you can download a crysis 2 configurator here and disable full screen mode under the “misc” tab.
