Hi, I asked this question a few weeks ago [Link](Mouse over link to see full location)
I've eventually come to learn that I need a graphics card/need to replace mine with a more powerful one.
I have no idea how to go about this or what I'm looking for. I'm going to list as much information about my computer that I can find so hopefully somebody can help me. Thank you.
My monitor is HP vs17 and I believe I have Windows Vista. I also believe I was told my monitor is on the highest resolution.
Please let me know if anybody needs any other information.
But first, please check your disc for any possible scratches. This could be causing major damage.
Have you tried updating the sims 3, & your computer? Are you running other programs while playing sims 3? If you are, you probably should close those. Will make quite the difference.
Please make sure your computer is completely up to date. On my computer, I have a little symbol & it tells me when new updates are available. If you don't have this, you can find updates in control panel->system security->windows update->check for updates.
I am not a big fan of custom content, EVERY time i download it, it messes up my game. even when i think its really safe. i just don't trust custom content, & my advice is to always remove it.
You can also try backing up your game, & then uninstalling all of the games & reinstall it.
if this doesn't work, then you should try contacting sims 3, they are quite helpful & have fixed my game a few times.
if this doesn't work, you may have to reset your computer.
then, if this still doesn't work, you need a new graphics card :)
