What about motherboard drivers?
Are you using a 64 bit OS?
Too many things left to chance I fear here. Ask the machine's maker to supply the "OS and driver install plan." Share that here so members can see if something was forgotten.
i am at a complete loss here with the sims 3. i need some serious help with my graphic card settings. ive been reading site after site trying to solve this one.
first my comp and graphics card: board-xfx mg-63mi-7159 / nvidia geforce 7150 chipset / 4 gigs ddr2-6400 / processor-intel core 2 quad q6600 / graphics card-radeon hd 4890 1 gig gddr5 / monitor-hanns.g if251 1920x1080 max resolution. i think that covers everything.
considering my hardware this game should fly off the screen.
issues: horizontal tearing, stuttering on the screen when i scroll. drives me crazy! the game itself has many of its own settings. ive tried using them, ive overode them with the card, i have vertical refresh forced on and have the newest driver. i also read about fps causing issues with the monitor and graphics card. how the heck do you know what your monitor and cards fps are?
i ran a program called frapps but dont quite understand what im looking at.
im beyond frusterated!!! if anyone knows anything about this stupid game your help would be more than appreciated. it will save my sanity.
