    Hi the keys,

    You can use a USB or SD card to speed up your computer which consequently would allow you to play games that require a lot of memory to live. Windows Vista has a new feature "ReadyBoost" using what you can do the same thing.

    Windows ReadyBoost can use storage space on some devices of removable media, such as USB flash drives, speed up your computer. When you insert a device with this capability, the AutoPlay dialog box will offer you the option to speed up your system using Windows ReadyBoost. If you select this option, you can then choose how much memory to use for this purpose.

    The amount of memory to use for ReadyBoost acceleration recommended is one to three times the amount of RAM (RAM) installed on your computer. For example, if your computer has 512 megabytes (MB) of RAM and you plug in a 4 gigabyte (GB) USB flash drive, setting aside from 512 MB to 1.5 GB of that drive will offer the best performance gain.

  • I am unable to run a trainer for Grand Theft Auto San Andreas.

    original title: why I can't start this program?

    I used to run this program, but after formatting my computer I can't run

    -I don't get any errors at all
    -It does not start

    The only thing I know is that when I double click on the file loading cursor flashes for a second as it will load, but it does not start

    I mean I have not changed my PC and I got Windows 7 before and I still have Windows 7 which would perhaps? I tried as admin, running with compatibility options and everything, but I can't start it!

    To be more precise, the program, I am trying to open is a trainer for GTA San Andreas, I used to use a lot in the past which can be downloaded here:

    Thank you both for the replies, appearently, I needed 3 ActiveX controls

    -COMDLG32. OCX
    -TABCTL32. OCX

    I am proposing to the installation location of the hack / trainer / mod thing and it works perfectly

    Also, I don't have these 3 commands to run before, why he needs them now.

    and another question, why I do not have an error and it does not work and nothing happened, it seemed like a virus :/

    Thank you

  • Can I run GTA4?

    Hello guys, since my purchase that I always wondered if I could run GTA4 on my computer. I am able to run Grand Theft Auto San andreas to the very high heat everywhere. I tried to run but he can't give me no result since Im running windows 7... So, if anyone of you could tell me how the game will work on my computer it would be awesome. I would like to know what setting should I set for the graphics? (very low, low, medium, high, very high) and if I'm going to lag.

    Here are my specs.

    Intel Core 2 Quad Q8300 @ 2.5ghz

    CC, here are the pages of specifications for your computer.  Also, here's requirements for GTA4.  You can compare the specifications of your computer with the system requirements for the game.  From what I saw, it seems it should work well on graphics at high.  Check the specifications of your video card to make sure they meet the system requirements.
