    Simple stuff:

    - Make sure you have the latest patch for Simcity 4
    - Make sure you have Windows Updated
    - Make sure you have the latest drivers for your video card
    - Defrag, and scandisk

    If that doesn't help, than come back.:)

    maybe....

    hmmm, well after doing all the updates (dont forget motherboard drivers, latest VIA drivers will help if it is a VIA chipset)and the probs do persist maybe it can be one of these things:

    1. CPU is overheating, check your temperatures (if you cant find software, check in BIOS), simcity requires alot of CPU work plus its an AMD chip

    2. Could be a memory problem, check your memory timings in BIOS, try setting the speeds slower, ....

    3. Power Supply maybe failing/or is not enough for your CPU at full load, ...., its a possibility :blink:

    hope this helps, ....
