Please can anyone help. I have just bought a computer for my son along with a game to play on it, but the game wont load. I dont know if it is a faulty game or that I have made a mistake on the computer spec. His computer is a Intel Celeron 2.79 GHz, 512 MB Ram and 50GB Hard drive. The game states requirements of Pentium 4 1.5 GHz or higher and 384MB Ram. I assumed that his computer would be fast enough because it is a 2.79. Have i made a mistake. I dont understand the difference between all the CPU's. Many Thanks
"Hi, thanks for replying. The game is Doom 3 and the min system requirements are: 3D hardware Accelerator Card 100% direct x 9.0 compatible 64mb hardware accelerated video card and the latest drivers. The computer has direct X 9.0 and the graphics card is Intel Extreme graphics 2 with max memory 96mb. I have a similar computer and I managed to load it on mine but the game keeps crashing. And my son downloaded a demo of the game from the internet and this too keeps crashing, saying the game has encountered and error and needs to perform an emergency shutdown. Thanks"
This game requires a very meaty graphics card to run (even on low settings) and yours isn't up to it. You will need to invest in a new graphics card to play it.
P.S. If you could keep replys in the thread it will help other people who have the same problem
