  1. my comp has crashed so many times & the only reason that really bothers me is that weve had to reboot & ive lost all my music & pictures a few times over. i also cant play the sims 2 anymore.. ive qone to systemrequirementslab.com & i have all the things i need to run it but it couldnt identify my video card. & when i try to run the sims 2 it wont start. i went to display properties> settings> advanced> adapter> properties & its telling me i have VgaSave. ive run the dxdiag a couple times & everythings fine but it says direct3d functionality not available so i cant test that.
