Nope, Floriduh so unless you are going to take a Disney vacation you're stuck with the geeks.

You could always use it as a doorstop Cheesy  Sorry, couldn't help myself Wink

Load it up with as much RAM as it will take and/or a faster CPU if possible. Short of a newer/more powerful machine that's really about all you can do.

I put it in myself?
If you ask yourself that question, the answer is no. Best to take it to a qualified service or a good friend who knows what they are doing.


*cracks up* See, I'm a little nuttier...I put my own video card in and didn't have any problems...but I couldn't get the side off the computer. My roommate had to open it for me. Very sad... Tongue

I need a new one too.

I have the minimum requirements to play Sims2 Seasons, but not pass recommendation.

And I need to fix my game....

I had a friend help, and I sat for 20 minutes trying to figure out how to take the side off while he was eating pizza... so he's done eating, washes his hands, drys them and pops the side right off.  Moron moment #8498 for me :pottytra:

How do you know if your laptop's video card is integrated or not? and if it isn't can you update it?

I have updated my card's driver several times. The problem is, the brand of the card isn't supported by the game.

Micco, how do I get more ram and a faster CPU?

Buy it (making sure the CPU socket matches and the ram is compatible), take the thing apart, install it and reassemble.

I installed a Radeon 9250 PCI card with 256MB in my wife's computer when she was having issues, and she hasn't had a problem since. She's currently running every EP/SP up through Seasons, and still running smooth.

You can get the card pretty cheap at http://www.newegg.com
