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.

I downloaded my sims 2 perfectly, and im on a brand new laptop, so there is enough space for my game to work OK. but whenever i try and play the game, it is fine for 2minutes, and then it just freezes...


Most games when downloaded would download with a virus and most viruses are known to freeze a game or program up.
But what mite work is to get yourself a anti virus and i would recomment AVAST 4.8, if that doesnt work then it is recommended that you buy the game and not download it
