Can't Enable Frame Buffer Effects on KoTOR 2: TSL?

Hi guy, I'm really new at this, but I've been having a problem I hope you can help me with I've had KoTOR and TSL for years, and I've played them through a million times on my old computer. But, the thing is, I've just recently bought a new computer, a laptop, and now with TSL I'm having a big problem!
You know when you click 'stealth mode', and your character switches to that cool invisible effect look? I've seen and used it countless times on my old computer for TSL, but now on this new one it's got that silly yellow shield graphic instead. I've done some digging and from what I can tell, it looks like having the graphics option 'Frame Buffer Effects' enabled is responsible for the cool invisible effect, while not having it enabled creates that yellow shield sort of look. So, I'd like to enable it. But the problem is, it's greyed out! In the advanced options settings under graphics options, 'Frame Buffer Effects' is greyed out, and I can't tick the box. Next to it, 'Soft Shadows' is also greyed out and I can't enable it either. The shadows one isn't really bothering me, but I'd really like to be able to put Frame Buffer Effects on. I've looked for about a week now how to fix this, and I've come up with nothing. Also, editing the 'swkotor2' file in the game's program files folder doesn't appear to do anything. Can anyone help me with this, I'm at a total loss

When I run the 'scan hardware' thing, it gives me this:

Hi.

Intel graphics doesn't support frame buffer effects. Grass doesn't work, either.

At least it runs the game.


"They should rename the team to the Washington Government Sucks. Put Obama on the helmet. Line the entire walls of the stadium with the actual text of the ACA.
Fix their home team score on the board to the debt clock, they can win every game 17,000,000,000,000 to 24. Losing team gets taxed by the IRS 100%, then droned."
