The first problem is not enough RAM. Note the specs that the Vista minimum is 1.5GB and you have 1GB. At the least you should be using 2GB on a Vista system for any performance.

Hi there,

If yo have desktop system then you can add a graphics card so you can easily play heavy game slike Red Alert 3, GTA etc. Currently you dont have any graohics card installed and you are using the motherboard 3D support for games that why your games run too slow. Add graphics card of atleast 512MB then you can see the performance.. Always buy Nvidia...


Best of luck

You can try the following things:
a) Install the latest drivers for your motherboard and graphics card (most important).
b) Disable any programettings running in the background, such as anti-virus scanners (you can do this using the control panel).
c) Check for overheating.
d)Check out the minimum requirements for running the game.If the specs are to high for your PC then try to reduce the game settings:
•Reduce Texture details
•Reduce Shadows.
•Set graphics : to Low or Medium.
e)Sometimes new Pc comes with intergated GPU, there are not powerful for gaming, so better buy a good one.
f)In the case you are running Windows Vista with only 1GB of RAM , it will not be sufficient for gaming purposes... so better add some RAM..
g) Better have the latest version of DirectX installed.
