Looking at that, I would say you need more RAM, especially if you are running Vista as you need at least 1 gig to meet the minimum spec, either way some more RAM would probably speed things up

How many leagues have you tried to run? What other programs have you running? If you are on XP, then you should be able to run 1 league at least.

Yeah more RAM is essential as technically your lucky your game runs at all as 1GB is the minimum requirement for Vista. RAM is quite cheap. Maybe ftg87 can fill you in more. :D

Woohoo! I love telling people to buy more RAM! :D

1st port of call should be [url=http://www.crucial.com/uk/]crucial[/url] and do their scan, it should tell you how much RAM you need and a cost, like jod says, it aint expensive

I would say you need at least 1.5 to 2 gigs, I currently have 1.5 gig and it takes very little time to load things, and my processor is worse than yours so you should see a big improvement with that sort of amount

You have 894MB so you need around another GB probably to run the game much faster but just to meet the minimum requirements you need 130MB.

It depends on the type of RAM you need and that depends on the model of your laptop. Did you try going to that link ftg87 posted. That will let you know. :thup:

Yeah you have to open up you laptop to put install it and it should not affect any programs for the worse. It will make your FM experience better and also your laptop in general. :thup:

EDIT: Yeah you need specific RAM. What model laptop do you have?

[quote name='penkwolf']doesnt it say at the top? isnt that the model? :) im not sure[/quote]

I think that's the manufacturer. Have you tried using the scanner [URL="http://www.crucial.com/eu/mac/index.aspx"]here[/URL]? It should let you know what type of RAM you need. :)

That link is for macs, presumably that won't work with a PC,

I think you should follow [url=http://www.crucial.com/uk/]this[/url] link penkwolf

I thought he said he had a mac. Maybe I am getting mixed up with the other thread the 2 of us were in. :D

I just reread it. You have Vista. Sorry about that. :o

Go to start->control panel->system and you will see your model number. What is that?

You regard me as the best? :D

Penkwolf, what do you see on the screen when you double click on the system icon?

Does it not have your Windows edition at the top of the screen and then system information in the next section?

Have you looked at the results of the crucial scan that tells you what you can buy from them to upgrade your memory?

Very much so, but I was also told to be honest, however, saying that I think you are the best was a blatant lie, so that one's out the window too :confused:

Told you even the best of us could get confused :D

[quote name='penkwolf']it says 1024 mb, but on my computer properties it says 800 something MB?[/QUOTE]

It has to do with certain stuff the computer uses and what's available for your use. Both numbers are correct in any case.

Ok, have you managed to find your pc model number?

If not, what do you see on the screen when you double click on the system icon that I speicifed above in the control panel?

Does it not have your Windows edition at the top of the screen and then system information in the next section?
