    Thanks for responding. I actually spoke to someone over the phone where I bought it from & was informed that the grapics card wasn't big enough. Exchanged the laptop today for dedicated graphics card. I've not yet installed games!!!! I may still need some support.

    Thanks

Acer aspire 6530 wont load up games


the lack gaming abilities of the X3100 integrated graphics chipset on the other hand really put a damper on any fun with this notebook. Without a more powerful dedicated graphics chipset, you won't be able to play current or even last generation games without horrible frame rates, or even getting the game to load at all. Another downside to the X3100 graphics on this notebook is the removal of the HDMI port (come standard in higher configurations), leaving you with only VGA out for connection to a larger display.

EA Game ''Spore'' - Videocard & Driver Issue


The card does not have the requirements to play the game. You would need to upgrade to a better video card if you want to play this game on your system. Sorry.

I have an acer laptop with window vista and my sims game keeps freezing everytime i click on a family to play and everytime i try to creat a new person it keeps freezing. What can i do?


I would see if there is an updated driver for your video card; check the driver version and date on the Acer Support Website. And there is a possible glitch in the game and there might be a update for it as well. Here are a few patches I found for the Sims 2 game...

How to run games on acer 5920 with x3100 grafic card ...what i have to do because i cant play in any games with good performance even old ones ...thats just wrong!!!


More RAM would help. Running Vista on 2GB of RAM is not good for gaming.
Also you could try to close all unnecessary programs. pretty much everything except your antivirus program can be closed by right-clicking on its icon (in the taskbar next to the clock) and selecting "exit" or "close"
That will free up more RAM, leaving it available for the games to use.

Playing high graphics games on acer aspire 4315


Check the requirements printed at the back of each game. this will tell you if the game runs. If some game is slow try disabling the antivirus while you run the game, remember to restart antivirus afterward.
Do not use software accelerator, majority of them are useless, some of them carries malaware and viruses.

Sims 2 plus expansion packs keep crashing


Im not positive but it may work. Go to "Start", "Control Panel", "Hardware and Sound", then "Power Options". Once you have found "Power Options" your going to want to set your computer to "High Perfomance" mode. You computer will now run your hardware at level its supposed to be ran at. But, power usage will go up though. So as long as your not leaving your computer on for long extended periods of time, its ok. But if you are, I recommend turning it back to "Balanced" mode. Hope this helps. Get back to me if you need anything else.
