Altho I don't have that PC I suspect you just don't have an adequate graphics function (hardware) to support that game. That has happened to me on my desktop. upgrading my graphics card solved the problem. I am not sure how you can do that with your laptop since it has limited graphics update capability. Another item, which you may have already done is added memory. Since your system already has Vista, it presumably has enough RAM. Just another thought.

Acer aspire 6920 startup problem (Windows Error Recovery)


You could try booting up in safe mode by pressing F8 if you haven't already. OR, if you have the Windows operating system disc, you might try to boot off of that, or a system recovery disc. You may lose a few files, but hopefully that will get you up and running. Hope this helps!

Sims 2 won't work on vista laptop


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.
You can confirm what type of video card you have in vista by following these steps: 1. Click the start menu, locate "Computer" right click it to bring up the right-click menu, then click "Properties" 2. On the left of the System Window, click "Device Manager" 3. Expand the "Display Adapter" branch and it will display the name/type of card you have. 4. Go to http://thesims2.ea.com/help/detail.php?help_id=281 and confirm whether or not your card is supported
Unfortuently computers havn't reached the point of universality... But we love the dynamics of them :D

My toshiba wont start it keep's restarting at the black loading screen.


have you done a maintainance on it to get rid of all the excess information?? if not..go to start--then all programs, then accessories, then tools, click on disk cleanup. click on yes to all when the pop up box show up.

after this do a defragmentation-- go to start, all programs, then accessories, then tools, then disk defragmenter. click on analisys-- this will tell you if you need to defrag your system. if yes-- do it..it will take time to defrag, but it will speed up you game play ability.
