I'd say upgrade to at least 1GB RAM.

How about your graphics card? How much memory does it have?

You may want to upgrade that too.

Can't load up a 3d game to play on my computer


If your Graphic Card does not support the 3D options, you won't be able any 3D PC games!

You have to look at your PC/Laptop specifications & the PC games requirements to play any higher graphic PC games. For any PC gaming PCs you have to install "DirectX' ie. latest version and updating graphic cards drivers too.

Hope it helps.

When ever i click on go to race on need for speed pro street it freeze's


Most of the games that we like is the one has a better graphics and texture. To be able to run/play a specific game, you'll need to support the hardware requirements specially Graphics Adapter (Video Card). Don't get mad when your trying to play a High Graphical Texture game, and it run so slow.
This is some solution to boost your game movement -Go to Option->Video/Graphics->Set it all to low graphical quality, or disable some graphical texture settings..
I hope it will help you..

When I tried paying my fifa 11 on pc and when I clicked play a new window opened and it said E001. What does it mean and can you tel me what to do to sort the problem. thank you


E001 error when playing FIFA 11, means that your graphic card is not supported (does not meet the games hardware requirements) in playing the game!! Majority of the onboard graphics card do not support very high graphicsPC games eg FIFA 11. ( Updating your DirectX or Graphics cards drivers will not help.)

In order to play the above PC game you have to get a better graphic card which support at least the "Shader Mode 3".

Hope it helps.

Computer lags when playing games


You really need more Ram. But if that's not an option, then open "Activity Monitor" under Utilities folder in Apps folder. Go to User Processes, and you can see exactly what's taking up your Ram and slowing your game. Quit each process and hope for the best. Don't fool with the System Processes section; you might quit a process that is essential to running your computer.

Stuttering during audio playback in Sonar


The stuttering is caused by excessive CPU usage, in other words: you have too little CPU power to play the file with the inserted synth smoothly. You could try inserting a different synth or play with the rendering-options of the synth (like disabling aliasing, etc.) or increase the audio buffer size (under audio options ?), but the only longterm solution is upgrading to a much faster computer.

Even when you find some tweak which lets you play the file (just) smoothly, adding another effect or synth is likely to cause it to stutter again, since your computer doesn't meet the official (!) minimal requirements for running Cakewalk Sonar 6, which is at least a Pentium 4 1.3GHz computer (and you have a 1.0GHz computer).

I would recommend upgrading your computer to something which at least meets the "recommend requirements" of Cakewalk Sonar 6, which is a Pentium 4 2.8GHz or newer (like any Intel Core 2 system), when you're serious about composing music.

My vostro 200 on call of duty 4 runs slow !! I


try lowering the screen resolution in the game settings also ste the grphics quality to low then see if the game is running fast if it runs fine then increase the graphics options one by one like resolution , bilinear or anisotropic filtering , antialiasing etc
and i would also like to tell you one thing that if the graphics card was inbuilt in your laptop then don't expect it to play heavy games like this you will have to install a separate graphics card to play good quality games

WINDOWS 98


You probably don't want to hear this but I really do not recommend that you do this.
The reason has to do with your hardware.

System Requirements for Windows 98:
486DX 66 megahertz (MHz) or faster processor (Pentium CPU recommended)
16 megabytes (MB) of memory (24 MB recommended).
A full install of Windows 98 on a FAT32 drive requires up to 255MB of hard drive space
VGA Graphics

The minimum hardware requirements for Windows XP Home Edition are:
Pentium 233-megahertz (MHz) processor or faster (300 MHz is recommended)
At least 64 megabytes (MB) of RAM (128 MB is recommended)
At least 1.5 gigabytes (GB) of available space on the hard disk
Super VGA Graphics

To be honest the posted minimum requirements for XP have long been considered a joke. A system twice as powerful as they recommend will probably still run slower than your current system with 98.
I am of course assuming that Windows 98 was originally installed on your system and it has circa 1998 hardware.

Too slow


the only way to improve graphics is to upgrade your graphics card and ensure that you have enough system memory and proccesor power to run the game as it should do. If you have a 32MB or 64MB card then maybe you should go for atleast 128MB
