At christmas i got a presarlo c700 (i think thts the product name). and i installed all my sims 2 games on and they ran great for a couple of months, but then it started freezing slightly, and after while i couldnt play on them any more they just wouldnt run. its also started doing the same, the dreamfall new game. they all have high graphics so that could have been it, but whats puzzled me is that they all used to work fine, and they all still run on another laptop.
help please?

How full is your harddrive?
Windows uses a swapfile which grows in size as you play games, etc.
If the swapfile becomes too big it will seriously affect your laptop's performance.

Do you ever defragment your harddrive or scan for viruses and spyware?
Regular maintenance is necessary these days
