Almost all netbooks use "integrated graphics" and many games will fail.
Did you try the link at the top of the forum to get more pixels? It might help but The Sims is unlikely to run on netbooks today.
I have an Aspire One netbook and I want to play The Sims 3 on it, I have all the software, but when it comes to playing it, there is a message saying that no graphics card is detected. Do these laptops come without graphics cards and what can I do if I haven't got one?
