Guest Gemsi Posted June 10, 2007 Share Posted June 10, 2007 Windows Vista, the delightful, totally UNsecure little blighter that it is, has a compatability issue with Nvidia Geforce graphics cards above series 6. When I got my laptop with Vista, I thought fantastic. All up-to-date ready for some gaming. I thought the only let down would be my 1.7ghz processor. But looking at the back of a lot of my games, I seemed ok. That's until, games installed, I run into the compatabilty issue Vista has. Searching the web for a fix. I've found that the geforce 7 graphics card I have, is the main problem to not being able to play games on my computer. I've noticed the problem being mainly with Sims 2. I've put so much time into getting that to run, it's unbelievable. I've even resorted to downloading Daemon Tools. The best I can get is Sims 2 without any build mode at all. :info7: All other games with the problem seem to work fine with fixed .exe files. Just not Sims 2 Anyone know of any ways in which to get it to work, as MS don't seem to have any real answers yet apparantely. But Nvidia and MS are working closely together to solve the problem (so I've been told.) Vista looks all so pretty and things on the outside. I just wish it weren't such a pain. I expected teething troubles, but not like this. I also didn't expect to have to actually install virus software. My old laptop on XP had kept all viruses clear without any antivirus software help. Vista let 600 viruses into my system files in the first 4 days. Which corrupted half my computer. Luckily it was sorted when I installed Panda and starting disinfecting everything.:doh32: Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
