Re: Test Drive Unlimited Is Lagging even when offline
It could be the graphics card. It could also be the amount of disk space you have left and how much ram you have installed on the pc. To play highly graphical games on a pc you going to want to have at least 2 gig of ram. Go to www.crucial.com download the program to scan your computer and it will tell you how much ram you have and what type and speed of ram that your computer is compatible with. With new computers ram is pretty cheap more than likely you can get 2 gig for around 30 dollars at www.newegg.com. very trustworthy site

Step 1: It's possible to recover from that mistake and decompress the drive from outside Windows. You must follow these instructions carefully. First we need to reach the Repair Your Computer region. Download and burn this disc. Windows Vista Recovery Environment ISO X86 version (32 bit) If you can't get it there any longer, you can purchase one for $10 here.

i,d suggest your problem, is with either the Graphics card. Or your Memory is very Low. I,d go 512 meg RAM ( minimum ) Go To 256 Meg ( AGP Or PCI-e Card ) minimum.
Install Direct X 9 Or 10 if the new card supports It.
Also check The Speed of the Memory.
Final solution, is to free up some items From The start-Menu.
The minimum hardware requirement for Test Drive Unlimited are:
> Pentium 4 2.4Ghz or higher processor > 1 GB of RAM > a 256MB Graphics card (GeForce 6600GT or better) > 8 GB of hard disk space and it runs only on the windows platform. Does your PC meet these requirements? If it does, then, I suggest that you re-install your graphics card's drivers.
Try running linux on it. Linux will run much better on older hardware. Depending an the specs of the system, it may not be able to handle running windows. Try ubuntu (www.ubuntu.com). If it used to run Windows XP or 98 and it wont now, try checking the hard drive. It may be corrupt. You can find hard drive check tools all across the web, google for drive fitness test by hitachi, it works great. Burn to a disk and boot to it on the older machine and do a full advanced test on the drive.
Is the disk a dvd disk or and actual CD.
DVD's will not play on a CD drive and visa versa.
more so, problem might be your video settings are set wrong, or your video card and or PC processor does not support this game.
As always read the instructions on the game and it's support properties BEFORE you buy it.
Most software is not returnable once the shrinkwrap is broken.
