Specs: vista home premium, intel core 2 e4400/1 gb ram
Hi the graphics card was causing problems on my pc around a years ago , so we took it out and have been using it with the one on motherboard . As our Daughter wants to plays sims 3 we bought a geforce 120 1024mb and installed it , it installed with drivers on cd then updated online and then when we start up pc just freezes , mouse won't respond .I have read online other problems with this graphic card but no one seems to have solved the problem , should i just try and take it back and get a refund .
Also does sims 3 seem to burn out graphics cards as both our laptop and that pc where sims was played weve had the cards pack up , i have another pc with a geforce gt240 but not wanted to install the game there just incase , and also a new laptop with intel chpset 3000 are we best to avoid intalling the game on these pcs?

Did u try to use the video card with only Microsoft driver?
Don't use the driver from the CD instead download this driver
Win Vista 32 bit
Win vista 64 bit

The only video card u have that is good for gaming is GT 240.
I don't think the Sims 3 is killing your cards, i remember one time this nvidia driver (196.75) used to kill v-cards.

Agreed, take the '210 card back if possible and get a decent card that can handle the game and while you are there, make sure that your power supply can handle the card you select.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
