Alabama Smith: geriatric computers beware!

[Post New]by vicalana on Nov 12, 09 1:51 AM
Not only did it totally freeze my computer, but when I restarted I had the dreaded box that says 'serious problem encountered'!!! I restarted AGAIN and the old puter seems fine now. I 've had many games not work, but none have ever done that to me before!

Have you taken time to tell CS?

A few of the games do not work on mine because I need a newer Graphic Card.
They told me at least a "128".

Hope This Helps

Thanks for the suggestion, but I haven't contacted CS. It will be my graphics card!

There are several games that those with older computers and graphic cards need to be aware of. I've said it before when they list the reccomendations for these games they're listing the bare minimums and I personally feel what should be listed is the requirements to have the game run smoothly and without problems.

It's not a BF issue though, they just give us what the companies give them as the reccomendations. Give us what it takes to actually run the game, not what it may or may not run on possibly with/without problems. My granddaughter has an older PC and there have been a lot of games she can't possibly run on that PC that according to the specs she should be able to run, so I've told her I am not buying you any more games till I get you a new PC.

Hi Fishies!

Just wanted to swim by and let you know I've moved this to the game forums to help keep the pond tidy.

Happy gaming!

I have had similar problem with old puter and I understand it will be worse as the technology gets better our puters will not be able to play them. What a bummer.
