Look up the game requirements. You need hardware that meets the minimum requirements.

Looking at the specs for this game, don't think upgrading is going to help with a game this old. Issues you are experiencing may be because trying to play vintage PC games on a modern PC.

Need for Speed: Most Wanted was designed to work with single core 1.4Ghz CPU, GeForce 2 32MB card, 256MB Ram. According to ehow.com

Is this a Windows 98 game?
These recommended settings seem pretty dated.

Thanks Mhouser for your info... NFS is works pretty good on my pc
I installed recently game called 'Hard Truck 2'' it's quite old game 2001-2003 I think and when I try to launch it , cuts off quickly and then message appearing 'your computer does not have graphic accelerator,.... Then I installed another game which is from year 2009 called 'hard truck 3 - rig&roll'
And when I launch it, then game starts , however after 30min play monitor crashes, system freeze , hard reboot required, after rebooting when I try to load last saved episode of the game it says that loading playing world but never loads , unless you go back to new games ,,... For this 2 games I didnt look for system requirments ,, will do today in some stage ....also any other games year 2009 and after such as crysis do same: crashes after little while you play ...wonder if there something you can advise guys .... My PC is dell vostro 230.....

This is a sticky at the top of the forum but...who reads those?

Intel GMA X4500 integrated graphics is what you have unless you have upgraded it? It shares system memory and isn't very good at gaming. Crysis is highly doubtful. Go run system requirements on any game you are wanting to play. It will do the checking for you. If your machine meets the requirements. Maybe something can be done. If not you are S.O.L.

Hard Truck 2 is a DirectX 7 game, I always have problems with my games on Windows 7 for games that use DirectX older than version 9.

Hopefully theres a mod or something for this game.

By mod I mean player made edits to the game files to make it work for newer hardware. Doesn't sound like there is from my searches around Google.

Is your computer very old?
Could be the power supply starting to go bad or video card going bad.

More likely the code the game is using for graphics is causing your display driver to crash.

Do you have a more recent game?
If played at max settings do you get these same kind of issues?
