|I have a similar problem, but my problem is just the whole thing going slow. I went to the site you posted, and I didn't see NVIDIA.|
I also have the system specs that the EA check up said was wrong but some of them seem higher.
CPU needs: (XP) 2.0 GHz P4 processor or equivalent; (Vista) 2.4 GHz P4 processor or equivalent [If built-in graphics chipsets then 2.6 GHz Pentium D CPU, or 1.8 GHz Core 2 Duo, or equivalent.]
I have: AMD Turion(tm) 64 X2 TL-60
CPU Speed needs: (XP) 2.0 GHz P4 processor or equivalent; (Vista) 2.4 GHz P4 processor or equivalent [If built-in graphics chipsets then 2.6 GHz Pentium D CPU, or 1.8 GHz Core 2 Duo, or equivalent.]
I have: 2.50 GHz Performance Rated at 3.76 GHz (isn't that higher?)
System RAM needs: (XP) 1 GB RAM; (Vista) 1.5 GB RAM [If built-in graphics then add 0.5 GB additional RAM]
I have: 3.9 GB (isn't that also higher?)
Video Card needs: 128 MB Video Card, with support for Pixel Shader 2.0 (NVIDIA GeForce FX 5900 or above " ATI Radeon 9500 or above " Intel GMA 3-series or above)
It didn't list what video card I have, but doesn't a laptop need a video card to function? I think its NVIDIA, because I recall getting updates for it and hearing of it before. But those updates were listed as optional on windows update, so maybe I don't have one. I have a HP Pavilion dv2000, so does that right there mean it won't work since it's not a gaming laptop?
I knew as soon as I heard the Sims 3 wouldn't have the player load each house, it would be slow, but my friend told me that new computers could handle it.
