    i think its the ram cause i have 4 gb rams and when i take one of these off , it works fine but slow as a sloth. i know its a potato pc but its my little sister pc and she plays games you could run on your microwave. its just not normal for this to happen when running such a light-weight games.

    Well if you had have included such vital information
    on your opening post that would have placed an entirely different light on the situation

    In that case run Memtest on the ram sticks

    However the CPU is 2010
    https://ark.intel.com/content/www/u...ssor-e5700-2m-cache-3-00-ghz-800-mhz-fsb.html

    and the chipset Intel G41 is not supported on 10 and as you can see is using WDDM 1.1
    The last driver for that was issued 2013

    The whole setup whilst it MAY work will never work as it should on 10 and especially so on the latest version of 10, which I doubt was offered on windows updates and if that is correct it should not have been installed

    However to return to the actual problem, as I said if you have 4 x 1GB sticks and taking one out seems to make it OK then change the one you take out
    to eliminate a bad stick
    Then change slots to eliminate a bad slot
    Memtest
    https://www.memtest86.com/

    please post with questions on memtest if necessary
    RUN two complete passes
    each pass consists of 10-12 tests
    the GUI of memtest when it is running will show you test % for each test and pass percentage
    So you run until it has completed the 10 or 11 tests and pass is 100%
