PC laptop - game freezes

Hi there,

I've had my laptop for some 2 yrs now with very little problem. However, recently whenever I try to play a game requiring some heavy graphics, it freezes and makes an almost grinding beeping sound, with the only solution a complete restart. For the first yr n a half, all of these games worked fine, but recently all I get is freezes. I was wondering what the issue could be?

Ive tried already reinstalling windows and updating my driver, but these games all used to work, so im guessing either something has changed or something has gone faulty. Any help?

Oh, and around 4 months ago i upgraded my memory, maybe that has something to do with it, but i never thought RAM and graphics cards need to match,...but maybe Im wrong... anyway thx for the help.

IF U ARE USING TWO RAM SLOTS THEN THE PROBLEM IS MOST LIKELY DUE TO RAM MISMATCH...SO TRY UPGRADE THE MEMORY WITH SINGLE 1 GB RAM.

It's probably because of flash player or an api of it. You can try to upgrade your flash player. It might work. Also I suggest you to use Google Chrome for less headache :) also you can try to login facebook and play your gamea on Chrome. It will probably solve your problem

Sims 2 won't work on vista laptop


Your Graphics Card (other names: video card, video/graphics adapter, GPU) is basically the video processing circuits used to process the games video output. These "cards" come in all shapes and sizes, and the one in your laptop may not be supported by this game. With laptops, there almost defiently not replacable.
You can confirm what type of video card you have in vista by following these steps: 1. Click the start menu, locate "Computer" right click it to bring up the right-click menu, then click "Properties" 2. On the left of the System Window, click "Device Manager" 3. Expand the "Display Adapter" branch and it will display the name/type of card you have. 4. Go to http://thesims2.ea.com/help/detail.php?help_id=281 and confirm whether or not your card is supported
Unfortuently computers havn't reached the point of universality... But we love the dynamics of them :D
