Does your computer meet the minimum requirements specified on the side of the game box?

Something else may be causing your computer to go slow.
When the game is running slow start up Task Manager.
You can start this by clicking Ctrl Alt Del then clicking on the task manager button.

You are looking for the bottle neck that is causing your system to run slow.
Is the CPU running at or near 100%
Is the Physical Memory Available Counter down below 10,000kb
Is the Hard Disk light constantly flashing

Let me know if you are seeing one or more of these symptoms and may be able to give you some advice on what you can do about it.

    I have just checked out the support page for that game.

    Looks like a nice game too by the way :)



    http://www.americanlonghaul.com/support....



    It looks like it relies heavily on the graphics card and drivers being correct.



    You have paid for this product so the people that wrote the game should provide support to you and help you get it working. There is a knowledge base article and Technical Support Links on the above page also.



    I'm not sure how old your Notebook is but I would look closely at the video card requirements and make sure your machine meets them.

You can't get an unlock code for free without breaking copyright laws. The only way to get it without breaking copyright laws is to either find a contest and win it and get it for free or you can get it here for next to nothing http://www.thumbmonkey.com/p-26317-18-wheels-of-steel-haulin-pc-game.aspx I hope this helps.

Well, i was playing World of Warcraft today, and randomly everything started lagging pretty hard, so i restarted my cpu, and now i can't even been on for 5 minutes without the computer freezing up...


if you keep reset on to your CPU this will affect to your Hard Drive. When your online games WOW very lag then do not let that online game on play to your Computer. You know or maybe your Computer are not enough to run this game. Check all the plug in play device which are capable to run this game. Your VGA Compatibility e.i AGP or PCI-E, Memory speed e.i DD1, DD2 & DDR3 and mostly Games Accelerator Programs.
Hope this tip might help you.
Good luck!

Game problem


Try it in a friends computer to see if it works there. If not, then there is a problem with the disc. I'd take the game back to where you bought it.

I bought 18 wheels of Steel American Long Haul from Wal-Mart and cannot install because I don't have an activation code.


Are you sure it ain't on your invoice (or the disk or the title card or the quick-start manual?) If I were Sam I'd probably put it on the flimsy thermal-printed receipt, which you should scan so's to have a copy around. The activation code, I mean.

check your virtual memory. it may not be allocating enough space on your hard drive to properly run. also there's a screen for software compatibility. programs that used to run flawlessly on win 98 may not run on windows xp or vista.
