I have the Sims 2 and when it starts up it either freezes, or goes pretty slow. Then when it does work it scrolls slowly and the actions the sims make are often slow as well, along with the graphics being a bit etchy. I've checked the requirements many times and they meet them all. Any ideas would help greatly. :tazz:

You can try closing all the programs you have running in the background. Look down by the clock on your desktop and close all those programs (you *may* want to keep your antivirus programs running, though these are often the biggest resource hogs). Then hit ctrl-alt-del and end any applications that you don't need/want running.

If none of that helps, then you may want to consider upgrading. Many times they only list the minimum system requirements for software. That generally means the bare minimum to just get the program running. They don't usually take into consideration that someone might actually want to play the game too.

Hello iheartnerds and welcome to G2G!

First of all make sure your PC meets the minimum requirements for the game.
Second thing would be to make sure all your hardware drivers are up to date.
Make sure you close all unnecessary background tasks.
Download and install the latest patch.

What are your PC specs?
