 I wonder what you mean by copied, its not an expensive game to buy if you find the right places.
 But vista; there have been some postings concerning running VTM:B on vista with variable success.
 Look at these:-

 Hold on and someone more knowledgeable than me may come along but that word copied could be very offputting.

 I can't help you with Vista, but you are also running it on a different computer.
 
 Being that it is laptop, I'm assuming it has integrated graphics?
 This could also be the source of the problem you desribe.
