Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

Not responding? i bought the sims2 double deluxe game, this installed fine, and when loading the game up, again this works fine, i can even play round a little bit on the game, but when trying to create things (like families, whihc is the main part of game) it shows as loading, nothing crashes, you can still move the mouse and the music still plays but it doesnt move from the loading page and when looking at the task manager, its not responding. may this have something to do with the video card, the game states it needs a directx 9.0c and my laptop has a 10..will this affect it playing? i've tried uninstalling and reinstalling but this doesnt help!

Hi,
         Ok best thing to try, which will quickly solve your problem would be to go here

http://www.systemrequirementslab.com/referrer/srl

Then Click where it says : "Find out if you can run
that game on your PC"

Look in the drop down list and select The Sims 2 Double Deluxe PC game. Then Click on the "Can You Run it" Button.

It wiil then Scan your System & Build a detailed profile of Hardware & Software installed, and will inform you of what software or hardware is/is not compatable with the game you want to play.

I have a Pentium 4 3ghz Processor, 1GB Ram, Direct X 9.0c, Win XP SP3 installed & after running a test to see if my Machine would handle The Sims 2 Double Deluxe, it passed on all areas except Video Card. & This is what it informed me :

Video Card
Minimum: A T&L-capable video card with at least 32 MB of video RAM. ATI Radeon series 8500 or better, NVIDIA GeForce series GeForce2 GTS and better

You Have: Intel(R) 82915G/GV/910GL Express Chipset Family (Intel(R) 82915G/GV/910GL Express Chipset)

 Video Card Features - Minimum attributes of your Video Card
 
 Video RAM: Required - 32 MB , You have - 128 MB
 Video Card 3D Acceleration: Required - Yes , You have - Yes
 Video HW Transform & Lighting: Required - Yes , You have - No

    So it basically passed all Viideo Card Tests accept for the Video HW/Transform & Lighting Required - Which is quite sad really to say the least lol.

My computer wont load/install my sims2 game it has no scratchs and all the expansion packs work i duno what to do


It won't run the cd when you put the cd in your computer? Try putting the cd in. Then go to Start > My Computer > look for the drive that the cd is in ( it will have a picture of the sims ) > double click that > then double click the .exe file (typically is called "install.exe" or "sims.exe". This should run the installation and then you're set.

Trying to install sims2 double delux on a ibm think pad 2628


What is the problem?
Are you using Download Manager, because if the load time is just getting longer and longer, it's the Manager's problem not your's.
If your are using the disk, make sure there are no cracks or scratches.

Crappy computer


the solution on the cd disc is to remove the cd out then uninstall the all games installed in this cd drive replace cd drive when it comes to uninstalling sim delux is goto where saved games in sim deluxe and save folder to a different location then uninstall then re-install with new cd drive and hunt net for nc patches for games that work if this still doesn't work time for re-install windows from scratch if you have a spare hard drive use it to copy all game saves to it then redo windows and all drivers then all games then place saves back into place where they came from. good luck.
