Sims 3 runs on my machine with Windows 7. The only problems I have are documented bugs that the developers don't seem to be addressing within the game itself; but those aren't related to the OS.

Well it depends on your video card. Every computer HAS a video card, you just have to have one that's compatible with games like these. It should work on most new Windows 7 computers.

it means you don't have a graphics card that supports pixel shader 2.0. and make sure you have an actual graphics card and not an integrated one, intergrated graphics cards are useless for gaming with.

my Dell laptop came with a 2GB Nvidia Geforce GT 525M graphics card.

I have windows 7 on my Lenova laptop and the PC download works perfectly plus NO disc to worry about patches are instant and I love playing sims 2 on my laptop. Just go to Amazon and order the PC version digital download, really doesnt take up much room on your harddrive. Pay and Download your game you can download on up to 5 different computers and your phone. Hope this helps I love it and I am not a computer whiz just a dedicated Sim Fanatic. YOU will love sims3 download. as a note sims 2 disc does not open on my laptop, but no problem with sims 3 download
