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.
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...
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.
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.
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.
