Okay I know you've been over this, I've read it on here somewhere, but it didn't help me. PLEASE HELP!
Here's my scenario:

Playing the Sims 3. Blue screen of death used to come up early into the game, got that to stop by updating my driver.
I've seriously done almost anything I can do.
I can leave the game up without playing it for hours and it won't crash. The minute I start playing, actually, 20 minutes into playing, the blue screen comes up.
At first it was the .DLL error, but now it's .sys and I have no idea what's going on.

Here's the address: B952BDZE, BQSEAT119510000, DateStap 44230948

I have an Intel 82915G/GV/910GL Express Chipset Family, it has 128 MB and it says that's what's required to play the game.

At first I downgraded the driver which seemed to take care of the problem, but then it came back, so I upgraded back.
Seriously I need some help before I pull my hair out.

Is the DV051 the Dell Dimension E310 desktop

With an integrated graphics you will NEVER succesfully play that game

I am not saying that it will NOT play, but it will NEVER run smoothly.

If you look at the system specs you sent me

Total Physical Memory 2,048.00 MB
Available Physical Memory 1.00 GB
Even running, nothing, except the system you will see that you had ONLY 1GB physical ram available

Do the following please
1. check in BIOS the ram allocated to the grpahics is indeed 128 MB

2. Dell has effectively stopped updating for that computer as of course it is about 6 years old, if I have the correct model
Go to Intel and update from there

3. Go to Control Panel, system advanced tab, performance, settings button, advanced tab again, virutal memory - change page file to 4Gb max - see this link

The recommended size is equivalent to 1.5 times the amount of RAM on your system. Usually, you should leave the paging file at its recommended size, although you might increase its size if you routinely use programs that require a lot of memory.

4. TEST system please and see if any improvement

5. When posting back - what AV Anti virus is installed please.
