Is your Game application in a good condition; can it be played at others computer? In fact some big Games required more graphic Memory e.g 256Mb etc. So read your game system requirement from "readme" that comes along your game CD/DVD hope that may help. 
Graphic Memory is different from Physical Memory. AMD has a good graphic memory and is good for gamers

Medal Of Honor -BreakThrough- graphics is not working


If your computer is working when you aren't running the game, then the problem is that your computer is not up to the required spec to run the game. If you look on the game box it will tell you the minimum spec required to run the game.

How can I tell if a game will run on this computer?


Check its <span>Windows</span> Experience Index score <p>The <span>Windows</span> Experience Index is a measure of how capable your computer is. To calculate it, <span>Windows</span> analyzes the hardware and software on your PC and then assigns it a score. The higher the number, the more likely your PC can handle games and other demanding programs.<br /> <p>When you buy a game, make sure the minimum score recommended by the publisher (typically printed on the box) is <span>less than, or equal to,</span> the <span>Windows</span> Experience Index for your computer. That's one way to ensure it will run smoothly.<br /> <p><br /> Check its hardware requirements <p>Even if your computer's <span>Windows</span> Experience Index score is good enough for a particular title, it's possible that an individual piece of hardware-a video card, for example-on your PC isn't.<br /> <p>That's why it's also critical to study the <span>minimum system requirements</span> listed on the game packaging and confirm your computer meets or exceeds them. Few programs put a heavier demand on your computer than games. If your computer's specs fall short, a game might run sluggishly-or not at all. <br /> <p>The components game publishers are typically most concerned with are:<br /> <ul> <li> <p><span>Central processing unit (CPU):</span> Make sure both the CPU speed and model meet the game requirements.<br /> </li> <li> <p><span>Random access memory (RAM):</span> Many games now require at least one gigabyte of RAM.<br /> </li> <li> <p><span>Video card:</span> Your video card must have a certain amount of memory and have a compatible <span>chipset</span> (publishers usually list the make and model of compatible cards). Cards must also typically support DirectX 9 or later.<br /> </li> <li> <p><span>Hard disk</span>: Most games require a certain amount of free space.<br /></li></ul>

Game slowing down at random times


  • Many users while playing a game on there computer seem to notice that it slows down at random times throughout game-play, This common on most computer as users seem to forget about other applications running on there computer.
  • If your CPU is not fast enough and you are running many applications while your game is running you will notice the game isn't responding as fast as it should, The best way to solve this is disable all programs which you are not using including MSN messenger and any browser or File sharing/Torrent Application.
  • Also make sure your anti-virus is configured not to scan automatically otherwise it may start scanning while you are in game and cause dramatic lag, Most anti-virus's will provide an gamers profile which you can activate to prevent certain anti-virus features while you are playing your game.

I have a dell precision 450, i play games on my computer, i run most games fine but games like call of duty 4 and guild wars crash for no reason my computer has all the recommended specifications and my...


Theoretically, your computer should have no problem running these programs. However, after researching the Dell Precision 450 specs, I found that it is a business machine with a quadro graphics card. This card is not targeted at gaming applications such as an Nvidia GeForce. This link will explain the differences. The graphics card itself may be causing the problem if the graphics drivers are crashing. This manifests as everything going black and no keys working. Also, if it is the stock card, it barely has enough graphics memory to run guild wars. You could try updating the graphics drivers from Nvidia. You could also get a new graphics card that is designed for gaming.

Another solution that you could try is updating the games by downloading patches for your games.

Depending on the chipset and the manufacturer....you MAYBE able to fix this problem by pressing the computer about 10 times. This method brings back the old configuration to your computer. If this doesn't work go into the cmos menu at the start of starting your computer, then find the option to reset all configuration. If this works...the next time you run that game, try lowering the resolution from your windows settings. Your computer may not have a powerful graphics chip that is able to handle a new game.
*All computer problems can have multiple solutions and have to be treated as a trial and error fix. Trying to fix a computer without being hands on is really tough. Hope this helps!

I can't run any games!


Thanks for a question
Computer games have specified minimum requirements of hardware that you need to have to run game properly. The "other computer" may have better specifications and therefore let the game run. Please check this subject and don't hesitate to ask more if you need further assistance. Good Luck

the worst that could happen is that the computer may not run the program. try installing the game, your cd (assuming that's the source of the setup files for the game) should not be affected.

after you install the program try to run it as usual by double clicking the icon to run the program if it doesn't run as expected try this.
1. right click the icon you use to run the game.
2. select properties
3. select the compatibility tab and select an appropiate mode. (ex. windows xp service pack 2)

not completely sure but you may also want to try to run the installation/setup program by changing the compatibility mode so you may be able to trick the program into believing the app/game is being installed on a windows xp service pack 2 system increasing your chances to have the installation running properly.

Better Gaming


Unfortunately yours is the Wal-Mart Holiday 2004 Bundle.
It only supports 1gig ram max and 1- 8X AGP video card.

It will never be a Gamer.
