          Your computer is out of date to play Sim3.

            afraid Peter is right.

             

            For SIMs3 you need

            FOR WINDOWS XP
            • 2.0 GHz P4 processor or equivalent
            • 1 GB RAM
            • 128 MB Video Card with support for Pixel Shader 2.0
            • The latest version of DirectX 9.0c
            • Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 2
            • At least 6.1 GB of hard drive space with at least 1 GB of additional space for custom content and saved games

             

            You have :

            os: windows xp professional

            sys manufac: dell

            sys model: dimension 2400 ( on-board video

            processor: intel(R) Pentium(R) 4cpu 2.2ghz

            memory: 382mb ram

            page file 257mb used 663mb avail

            direct x version: diredt x9.oc (4.09.0000.0904)

             

             

            You could add a video card and replace your memory with larger DIMMs, but. . . . .

             

            ( I have one just like this with 1g ram and it is so slow i use it to hold my door open
