Get a cleaning kit and clean out the terminals on the game cartridge and game slot.
Corrosion on the terminals is common on older systems and games.
They should be cleaned regularly. Maybe once a month or as problems occur.
This should always be your first troubleshooting step when a game stops working properly.

My nintendo 64 is lagging!


The N64 was originally made for the old analog CRT TV, if you are connecting it to a newer type digital TV this could be why you experience lagging as I have those games and do not remember any lag in any of them not that I have played them in the last 2 years. The worst case scenario is that the seller was getting rid of it due to a bad Video chip inside the N64 without stating that there was a problem with it so they could sell it. This is why I never use eBay you just never know what you are getting. I am not sure if Nintendo still support this console but it maybe worth a try to contact them directly and see if they are able to help you figure out what it is.

Your English is very good I understood everything with no problems my friend.

My Nintendo 64 is lagging!


Definitely if you are playing one of those 3 games it is normal since those are three of the most graphic intensive games ever released for the console besides Goldeneye 007 and Perfect Dark. Just like if you remember the days of the original nintendo if you had more than 8 characters/sprites on screen at once the game would crawl until you killed one of the sprites! LOL But for those 3 games if you have a lot of graphics on screen with a lot of textures at certain points in a level it will definitely slow down the frame rate for sure. The only way to remedy this is to attach a heat sink fan to your Nintendo 64 processor similar to how you attach one to a computer but that would have to be a custom job or just play the games on Emulator on your PC. Cheers!

How to play Donkey Kong 64 without Expansion pack


Donkey Kong 64 was one of only three Nintendo 64 games to require the Expansion Pak (the others being The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask and Perfect Dark), which provides 4 MB more RAM for enhanced graphics and more expansive environments, as well as to fix a game-breaking bug.We don't think that you can play this game with no expansion pack. I have tried to play perfect dark with no expansion pack and it was not all there then.

N64's Zelda, majoras mask problem


The Jumper pack is needed for Majora's mask, as the extra space is needed for the game to play the enhanced graphics. Ocarina of time was made before the jumper pak was introduced, so it does not need it.
As for installing it, get a jumper pak installer kit to remove the original memory pak, the insert the new one.
