Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

I have just got a new system with a Geforce 8600gt 1 gb video card and LGw2242t Monitor and the system keeps saying that directxdraw, 3d are not available which I need to run windows media player. I can only think it must be the settings on the monitor as I have definitely got the latest directx installed. I am running Vista.

Sounds like the drivers for the GeForce 8600gt Video Card needs to be reinstalled.

It sounds more like your video card is overheating, and stops sending output to your monitor. Double check the card, make sure the fans are running correctly. From what I can tell, the Geforce GT320 highest temp seems to be 105c. You can use RivaTuner to keep an eye on your temps. You can download it here.

Throw some more fans in the case if necessary.

Hello,

Thanks for using fixya.

My name is Carlo.

Your computer might not pass the system requirements that's why it has an error. Or, you can try installing it one more time and check if it will work. Computers do mess up sometimes.

Here's the system requirement of SIMS 3:

Desktop PC (Windows XP + SP2):
CPU: 2ghz Pentium4 Processor or Amd Athlon 2000+ Processor
RAM: 1 GB of RAM
GPU: 128mb Video Card (GeForce FX 5900 or Radeon 9500)

Desktop PC (Windows Vista + SP1):
CPU: 2ghz Pentium4 Processor or Amd Athlon 2400+ Processor
RAM: 1.5 GB of RAM
GPU: 128mb Video Card (GeForce FX 5900 or Radeon 9500)

Laptop (Windows XP + SP2):
CPU: 2ghz Pentium4 Processor or Amd Athlon 2000+ Processor
RAM: 1.5 GB of RAM
GPU: 128mb Video Card (GeForce Go 6200 or Radeon 9600)

Laptop (Windows Vista + SP1):
CPU: 2ghz Pentium4 Processor or Amd Athlon 2400+ Processor
RAM: 2 GB of RAM
GPU: 128mb Video Card (GeForce Go 6200 or Radeon 9600)

IF your computer does not pass the system requirement, then you cannot play sims3 in your computer.

I hope this helps. Thank you for using fixya

Please leave your comment and ratings. Thanks

Video Card Upgrade Problems


Does this computer have an onboard video card?

If so you will need to disable this feature in the system BIOS.
It should be under onboard devices.
You will need to use the onboard card to enter the system bios and then turn off the onboard card. install the new card and then connect the monitor to it then power on the machine
