Question for The Sims 2

In my game the Sims 2, I installed it onto my HP laptop, now every once in a while every area except the houses go black in the neighborhood.Also when I'm playing in a family random patterns like floor tiles go all around the yard. Sometimes when my Sims change clothes they go all black. I want to install more games but I'm afraid it will get worse. My computer has plenty of memory. What's wrong?

Your computer may have plenty of hard drive memory but Sims uses a lot of RAM memory too. This usually slows the game, maybe the problem lies in your graphics card. Although it requirements are very specific, some graphics cards not listed can and will work but can be a little glitchy at times.

Not all of the sims games are very laptop friendly. Have a look on the Sims official forum, maybe they can provide patches for you.
