Sorry I just noticed the specs for your comp are in the thread title. These laptops are far too old to play any games that were made in the last 5 years well.

I don't belie there is any fix for this problem and support for this product ended years ago. Sorry but that laptop is just too old to do what you are asking of it.

    Sorry but to my knowledge the video card in that model isn't changeable.

    Even so it's not just the Video card thats causing the problem. You also need to be running win xp/vista. with twice the RAM that that model comes with (i'm assuming you havn't upgraded the ram, and its still at 128mb).you need at very least 256MB

    Of course even then you still have a processor that is about 200mhz to slow to play this game. I would reccomend a slightly less intensive (hardwarewise) flight sim, as you should be really close to able to run it.

    The only other thing I could think of, would be to upgrade to windows xp, which then you may be able to get the game to run. But the frame rate would probably be to low for you to have any fun with.

    Because I live in the U.S. it's hard for me to recomend one in your price range. However I can say that "Dell" makes very cheap laptops. It's VERY risky to order a laptop internationally though.

    For a student I would reccomend any odel of dells VOSTRO. Any model of this pc will play the game you mentioned in your original post. There are several models to meet you needs starting at $400 (I believe about 350 your money).

    I'm not trying to advertise for dell or anything. This just is the cheapest commercially available laptop to do what your asking. Available internationally.

Why does a pc shut screens down when running a flight sim program but keeps the windows running?

Could be the Video card can't handle the games video, need newer drivers to support the game (DirectX) Most of the time, it comes down to the video card and what all the card can run. Windows runs separate from a game, so a game can crash and windows can stay functional.

Hope this helps.

a Video card (aka a Graphics card) is a physical component in your computer that renders images and graphics, the higher quality graphics card you have the higher quality of games and images you can play/render.

so what this error means is the graphics card that your computer currently has installed doesn't support a model of shader (think shadows) which is needed to run Sims 3 properly

you can upgrade these cards, but it all depends on other components of your computer as to which would be most suitable for you

if you know anyone with knowledge of computers consult them as it would be free, or otherwise you'll have to have a consultation with a computer technician at your local computer store

hope this helps.

This issue occurs if the video card installed in the Computer doesn't meet the video requirements to play the game. You can visit the Computer's manufacturer website to check for any updated driver for the video card installed in the Computer.

Get a video card as was recommended by EA. You have a PCI-E slot (also known as PCI-X or PCI-Express). You should be able to find one in the $80 range at any Best Buy or Fry's that will work.

AGP card not suport to play games

Only solution is to upgrade your video card. ATI Radeon 1650 pro 512 mb card is available in an agp format. This card is probably the best out there for an agp board. All you would need to do is purchase the new card, remove old card, insert new, reboot & use the cd that comes with the new card to install drivers. Hope this helps & please rate my answer fixya. Thanks.

Flight Sim X fails to load at statup

Check your video card and its drivers are up to date and not corrupted. Might be worth downloading new drivers. Basically after the menu screen the sim enters Direct3D mode and if there is a video driver problem, this is where it will pop up and start causing problems.
