Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 1525 Laptop ?

Sims 2 won't work on vista laptop

\015 So this problem's been bugging me for about half a year now since I got a new laptop. Whenever I try to play sims 2 on it, it freezes all the time-before i get a chance to load/create family. the game worked fine on the computer, but that was a windows xp.\015\012It's a dell inspiron 1525 and it has windows vista.\015\012i've tried looking on the net for solutions but either they don't work, or I don't understand? i have no idea what a ''graphics card'' is which is what some people have mentioned?? could someone PPLLLEEASSSE help?? It's driving me nuts -_-\015

Answers :

Your Graphics Card (other names: video card, video/graphics adapter, GPU) is basically the video processing circuits used to process the games video output. These "cards" come in all shapes and sizes, and the one in your laptop may not be supported by this game. With laptops, there almost defiently not replacable.\015\012
\015\012You can confirm what type of video card you have in vista by following these steps:\015\0121. Click the start menu, locate "Computer" right click it to bring up the right-click menu, then click "Properties"\015\0122. On the left of the System Window, click "Device Manager"\015\0123. Expand the "Display Adapter" branch and it will display the name/type of card you have.\015\0124. Go to http://thesims2.ea.com/help/detail.php?help_id=281 and confirm whether or not your card is supported\015\012
\015\012Unfortuently computers havn't reached the point of universality... But we love the dynamics of them :D
Well, vista can not run all games. You have to accept the fact. if you use XP here, on this pc, you will be able to play the game
