    In Red Alert 2 whenever I build something, kill a unit, get an upgrade, or buy something my computer lags for a few seconds. Is there any way to stop this?
    Also in Red Alert 2 Yuri's Revenge when I come up to the last load screen, it freezes up and I have to Ctrl + Alt+ Del out. Its so annoying. Is there any way I can stop this to?

    Ok, I've checked my requirments, and all of them match, or are better. I ran a test to see if any of them need updates, some do. But none that would or should affect any and all games I have downloaded. The ones that need updates are iTunes, Hp photo, Microsoft Word, and MSN.

    I would assume the video card is not that great. Most laptops sans the last couple of months are not ideal for games.

    You can find the information by going to Start > Run > type dxdiag and press enter. Once the screen pops up, click on Display.

    One thing to note, RA2 and Windows XP are notorious for having issues.

    last thing, 9/10 the memory for the video card is actually the main memory (RAM) so you will have a lot of slowdowns.
