    Hello wenrosie, well i cant give you a technical answer for your problem because you did not give a technical explanation.
    **** i can tell you that games are easy to figur out there problems, u just need to check the requirments of the game it should be located in a text file in the installation folder, and you should make sure you meet the minimum requirments, like video card memory, ram and cpu.....well yes some might cover for others like ram can cover for video card memorry **** you need to ulter the settings from inside the game.

    if the game doesint load at all whene you double click the icon, the proble might be the memmory is not enough, the installed game is corrupted or it needs some kind of crack that usualy comes with it.....
    so what exactly happening?
    does the game load? does it exit alone? does it give you any error? and if it does, what the error is saying?

Game slowing down at random times

  • Many users while playing a game on there computer seem to notice that it slows down at random times throughout game-play, This common on most computer as users seem to forget about other applications running on there computer.
  • If your CPU is not fast enough and you are running many applications while your game is running you will notice the game isn't responding as fast as it should, The best way to solve this is disable all programs which you are not using including MSN messenger and any browser or File sharing/Torrent Application.
  • Also make sure your anti-virus is configured not to scan automatically otherwise it may start scanning while you are in game and cause dramatic lag, Most anti-virus's will provide an gamers profile which you can activate to prevent certain anti-virus features while you are playing your game.

Computer wont let me play game dont want to buy the card i need

sorry to tell you this but the 5500 is very outdated. the only thing you can try is going to fill in your info and download the newest driver. (which is three years old). you might just have to bite the bullet and buy a new card. if you give me a price range i can find you a decent card. that should play just about any game you want. good cards are not always that expensive, you just have to know where to look.

Have you tried the recover game tag options? I would suggest this if you did not purchase a gold membership. By the way gold memberships can be purchased on ebay for a fraction of the cost of retail outlets, plus you get emailed the key almost instantly. Actually faster than going to the store..
