3 year old computer won't accept video card

I just got a new game, the sims 3, when i installed it, it said my video card was out of date, and didn't support the 2.0 shadder. So we went out and bought a new video card, and had the computer guy put it in, but my cisnet wouldn't accept the video card. the computer guy tried and tried but the computer won't come on, because he thinks the video card is too fast for the slot. but the computer is only three years old, so does that mean if you have an old computer you can't even update a video card?

No, it means the computer guy sold you the wrong card. Get your money back, go to a different, reputable shop.

Make sure that your drivers for your video card are all up to date. Certain drivers can affect the playability of some games. If not, please let me know your video cards model number.

I just installed SIMS 3, and it keeps freezing up and crashing. Is my ATI Radeon X600 the problem?


The card is most likely NOt the problem, best thing to do is upgrade the Graphics drivers and other drivers... If that doesnt work...
Check to make sure the Ram is sufficient,
I believe it would be the problem if its a older card, and Sims 3 is a high Polygon game. and Alot of radeon cards Get old quick.. if You really want to play sims 3 Upgrade your Video Card If your running a Crossfire Mother board (Ati only) Buy one of the new Ati cards 4890 i believe is the newest one, Its a great card
If your running a Full compatibility board buy one of the new Nvidia's But before you buy make sure your Computer Supports it :)

The error message you got would show up in the following scenarios:
1. DirectX not up-to-date.
2. Video card drivers old.
3. The game being played with a not supported video card.

Check for the above mentioned and it should be either one of them.

It can be the game installation corrupted, does not look like video adapter problem.
Backup all the files from the game, so that you can recover all old savings, then proceed reinstalling the game, if asked chose to keep saved files.
Do a backup first.
