    Emachines laptop m2350
    Ram:512 mb
    Hdd:60gb
    CPU: 2800+MHz
    Free Hdd cpace:47gb
    Video card: ATI Radeon Igp 320m
    Problem:My sims 2 game , everytime it runs, it freezes time to time and forces me to turn my computer off improperly. It also runs slow, graphics don't run smoothly throughout the screen.
    Sims2 Game Requirements:
    OS: Windows (XP,95/98,ME.....)
    Video card: DirectX 9.0 compatible(i.e. nVidia Geforce 2 or greater or ATI Radeon 7200 of greater)
    Sound: DirectX 9.0 compatible
    Hard drive space: at least 3.5 gb
    CPU: 800 MHz or greater
    RIGHT NOW THE GAME TAKES UP 2900 MB 2.9GB
    My computer seems to meet all of those including DirectX compatibility.
    If you could research ATI Radeon igp 320 M that would be great because then you would be able to help me a little more. I don' know what to do , whether to buy new video card or just leave it.
    P.S. I did driver updates from ati website in the support. It didn't seem to affect it. (CATALYST 5.1 drivers) My card is igp family for windows xp . Thanks for your time. I would appreciate some feed back.

    IGP= Intergrated Graphics Port. While the ATI is most likely better than some others it is still going to leave you hanging at times. The Sims might just need more than the chip can give.
