Default I can't figure this out! Can someone help?

When I run a game on one of my computers it runs smoothly but when I run it on another computer it just freezes. The computer it freezes on has more hard drive space and more mhz than my other computer.

Can someone help me?

1. what game?
2. system specs on both computers?

If i had to guess without knowing anything about your computers, I would say that the one that runs the game sucessfully has some sort of video card in it. good enough to run the "game".

the other computer that just freezes probably has on board video and just can't handle the game.

And not forgetting the right drivers, and virii.

Need specs... But check for the odd virus on the machines any way.

Probably a video card or memory problem. Also make sure you have the latest DirextX installed.
