Hi ,
Did you try re-installing the drivers of the card , If the performance is slow it can be due to other reasons , your processor taking more load , go to Task Manager and check the Ram and Processor utilization.
Please do let me know the system configuration.

Sims 3 crashes


Hi. Well that is obvious if the memory as well as the virtual memory drops below the required level. Your VGA settings (Graphic Adapter) might also making the game crash. It is a good thing to disable AVG temporarily while you play the game. (Please let me know your System's specifications as well. Like RAM size, VGA size, Processor Speed and Hard Drive Capacity - Both free and used capacity. If you have default specs for the Dell I6400 no need to include). Otherwise it will use the memory and virtual memory to scan the activities of the game.
You have to keep some vacant area in your System Partition (In which you have install the Operating System). Virtual memory page file is 1.5 x the size of RAM. But you can increase the size. But you have to have a faster hard drive as well because it will be used more when you increase it. The other option is to upgrade your RAM (installing an additional RAM if the PC supports). Most of the modern games require way too high performance PCs. Most of the time RAM and VGA.
To increase the Virtual Memory:
  1. Right click on My Computer icon and go to Properties.
  2. Click on Advanced tab.
  3. Click on Settings under the category, Performance.
  4. Click on Advanced.
  5. Click on Change under Virtual Memory.
  6. Select a free Partition (Which had more than the size x 1.5 of your RAM)
  7. Select the option System Managed size if you do not wish to do it manually. If you want to configure manually, select the Custom size option and enter the size which I mentioned before in BOTH the boxes.
  8. Then click on SET.
  9. You may be asked to Reboot the machine. Do so if asked to.
  10. Then play he game.
  11. If possible please upgrade your RAM.
Sims 3 System Requirements are as follows:
  • FOR WINDOWS XP

  1. 2.0 GHz P4 processor or equivalent
  2. 1 GB RAM (512 should be enough however)
  3. 128 MB Video Card with support for Pixel Shader 2.0
  4. The latest version of DirectX 9.0c
  5. Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 2
  6. This one is very important: At least 6.1 GB of hard drive space with at least 1 GB of additional space for custom content and saved games.
  • FOR WINDOWS VISTA

  1. 2.4 GHz P4 processor or equivalent
  2. 1.5 GB RAM
  3. 128 MB Video Card with support for Pixel Shader 2.0 (not enough)
  4. Microsoft Windows Vista Service Pack 1
  5. At least 6.1 GB of hard drive space with at least 1 GB of additional space for custom content and saved games
  6. For computers using built-in graphics chipsets under Windows, the game requires at least:
  • Intel Integrated Chipset, GMA 3-Series or above
  • 2.6 GHz Pentium D CPU, or 1.8 GHz Core 2 Duo, or equivalent
  • 0.5 GB additional RAM

  • FOR MAC OS X
  1. Mac OS X 10.5.7 Leopard or higher
  2. Intel Core Duo Processor
  3. 2 GB RAM
  4. ATI X1600 or Nvidia 7300 GT with 128 MB of Video RAM, or Intel Integrated GMA X3100.
  5. At least 6.1 GB of hard drive space with at least 1 GB of additional space for custom content and saved games
  • This game will not run on PowerPC (G3/G4/G5) based Mac systems, or the GMA 950 class of integrated video cards.
Windows Supported Video Cards NVIDIA GeForce series FX 5900, FX 5950 6200, 6500, 6600, 6800 7200, 7300, 7600, 7800, 7900, 7950 8400, 8500, 8600, 8800 9300, 9400, 9500, 9600, 9800 G100, GT 120, GT 130, GTS 150 GTS 250, GTX 260, GTX 280, GTX 285, GTX 295 ATI Radeon™ series 9500, 9600, 9800 X300, X600, X700, X800, X850 X1300, X1600, X1800, X1900, X1950 2400, 2600, 2900 3450, 3650, 3850, 3870 4850, 4870
Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) GMA 3-Series, GMA 4-Series
Laptop versions of these chipsets may work, but may run comparatively slower. Standalone cards that are installed in vanilla PCI slots (not PCIe or PCIx or AGP), such as some GeForce FX variants, will perform poorly.
Integrated chipsets such as the ATI Xpress and the NVIDIA TurboCache variants may default to settings that are higher than what would be optimal for them. Graphics settings can be lowered to improve performance.
The NVIDIA GeForce FX series is unsupported under Vista. MAC OS X Supported Video Cards NVIDIA GeForce series 7300, 7600 8600, 8800 9400M, 9600M GT GT 120, GT 130 ATI Radeon™ series X1600, X1900 2400, 2600 3870 4850, 4870 Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) GMA 3-Series.
So make sure to meet at least the minimum requirements.
Enjoy Gaming.

GEFORCE FX 5500 video quality low, slow motion videos and games


well if your trying to game on a pc the 5500 isnt quite sufficient. If you dont know about nvidia you are about 5 generations back of days cards. So the card wont handle any of todays games. If your really trying to game i suggest you build/buy a new rig. But as far as playing videos, quality should be good. Try goin to nvidia.com and downloading the newest drivers.

Problem With Nvidia GeForce 7600 GT


I have a similar card and experienced a similar problem on my AlienWare notebook.
Go to task manager (Ctrl-Alt-Del), select the "Processes" tab and look for "Rich Video.exe".
Select it and click "End Process".
Restart the game. If this works, the best thing to do is disable the service (Start > Run > Services.msc) or delete the startup registry (Start > Run > Regedit >> HKLM/Software/Microsoft/Windows/Current Version/Run > Delete the RichVideo entry.)

Graphics Card Problems


Right off hand, I cannot answer this. Check into the video card trouble shooting, by going into the software that came with the card. I would also go into specific forums for your games to see it any one else is having issues. I have a two year old NVidia based card that will not play some of my late 90s' games because of software issues. I had to download patches, and run system commands to get them to work. NVidia in particular has a pretty good following and help is out there.

Well running vista on nvidia 5200 and expect for performance is nothing but a dream.If you are a gamer, you shoud REALLY get a new graphic board...an nvidia 8600 could help you.the rest of the configuration is great for running vista and play most of the games(with a new graphic board).

IF you don't need another graphic board and you don't play demanding games, the video driver could be your enemy...
here is a site where you could download a GOOD driver www.Guru3d.com

Slowing down suddenly when gaming


Hi rajiv2612.
Suggest you check for any software update's from GeForce for you're 8600 GT. Also check for any software patches for the game (s). (Include windows update service as well).
The normal stuff like running windows system defrag & disk cleanup utilities should be run once a month for gamers.
Lastly, if you feel heat may be an issue. Open the PC case & leave opened while playing the game that seems to slow down the most. If the game does not slow down (After checking & updating all of the above), than maybe you need to add a 3" fan to the case, so fresh air blows directly onto the 8600 GT.

Good Luck!

Video Problems


Hello!

Maybe you need to install the correct driver of your video card. But first update your motherboard driver, if you have CD/DVD utilities enlclosed in your computer from the vendor then you should reinstall that in series installation. after that installation restart the system and then install the updated driver or the current CD/DVD utilities of your geforce 8600 GT and again restart the system after installation. and then set the monitor display to the required display of your games.

May this help, best regards, melnavz
