My specs:Dell Inspiron 15Intel Pentium processor 2.10 GHz4GB RAM500 GB HD
Every time I try to play games, such as Terrarria, The Hidden, Half Life 2, Killing Floor, etc.my computer shuts down. I make it about 5-10 minutes into a game, and it just shuts off. It might be overheating, but I keep my computer elevated, and theres good ventilation. My computer never used to do this. What could it be?
planning to buy a laptop for all kind of purposes: watching movies, converting them to dvd, play games, surf internet, use word etc.
I am thinking of buying Dell XPS 1530 for $1778 without tax (btw my budget is under $2000) heres the laptop config:
Now i really need ur views on this btw as u can see i am saving $221. Also is it a good choice to upgrade to T9300 for $200 or i should stick with T8100?
i live in Canada Also can someone please confirm if this laptop includes: VGA output for RS232cable, firewire, and svideo. Also would i be able to attach my external desktop speakers or not ? i am also very confuse about the battery like not sure which one to get like 9 or 6 cell ..cuz i heard that 9 cell would be very heavy compare to 6 and weird shape? Lastly is the grainy screen problem still around like i have to tell the representative for LG screen or not ?
I have a big problem with my acer 7520. The problem is that i cannot play anymore new games or even watch any movies on my laptop. I got the laptop about a year and a half ago and everything worked great. I could watch movies even when other applications were open. I could play pretty demanding games on it that ran very well. And now about 3 months ago all that luxury stopped and i cant do any of those things anymore. Even an old game like rome total war runs at 9 fps or lower on the main map, i didnt even bother going into battle. Movies stutter and skip frames, and sometimes even get stuck on the same frame with the sound still going as if everything is fine.
My sound is no longer working. At all even off of my videos stored on my laptop. Around the same time I lost my sound my laptop also stopped playing and videos from the internet (YouTube, Facebook, Etc.) I've installed all the driver as I had read. But and still nothing.
My laptop will randomly turn off. I don't think that it is overheating because sometimes it just shuts off like 1 minutes after i turn it on. I don't feel any heat coming from the fan or anything. When it turns off it doesn't go through the shutdown process it just turns off. Iv'e tried a factory reset and a complete virus/malware scan.
I have a 1525 laptop that wants to stay awake most of the time. I have it set to hibernate when the cover closes. It behaves most of the time, but occasionally it decides to restart instead of hibernating. When it's acting up, it will do the restart if you try to put it in hibernation, sleep or if you try to shut it down. The only way to kill the thing is to do a hard shutdown using the power button. It's annoying to say the least, since you can't just close it and walk away. If it restarts with the cover closed, it gets way too hot.
I am buying a Dell Inspiron 1545 with Intel core 2 P8700 processor rated at 2.53GHZ with 3MB of L2 cache, 4GB DDR2 800MHZ ram, 500GB hard drive rated at 5200RPM, ATI 4330 Radeon HD video card with 256MB of VRAM, and Sound blaster software enabled AUDIO Card.
Also, there are some other stuff like Bluetooth and bluray drive etc etc. It all comes with WINDOWS 7 HOME PREMIUM WITH 64BIT. It has intel GM45 chipset which supports 1066 FSB and it also supports ddr 2 and ddr3....can i upgrade to ddr3 late on since intel states that it supports both? http://www.intel.com/products/notebo...5-overview.htm
Now the question, i m NOT going to play any GAMES on this laptop but i would watch alot of 1080P movies or u could say i would watch bluray movies. Is this laptop going to be sufficient enough to handle all high resolution videos? including YouTube's 1080P videos?....
AGAIN, i m not playing any GAMES on it....should i get this laptop or should i get studio 1558? since i m not playing any games, do u think i m jus gonna waste more money on studio
Until last week this lappy had the old 80Gb HD and Win XP Pro SP3. I play several online games (Silkroad Online, Battlefield Europe, Steam games) and they all played great.
After 4yrs it had some major issue last week that I couldn't recover from, so I picked up a WD Blue 250GB HD and had Win 7 Home Premuim (bought 4 copies for all the PC's here)
After much driver searching, everything works awesome on it except my games. The keep doing a Pause - Pause - Pause. I have been digging into everything, all sorts of video drivers, etc and nothing has helped. Wonder if its something with the Dell 1350 or Broadcom 440x controller. I've looked for the latest drivers from all over but nothing has helped. Surfing, Videos, Office 2007 all work great. It never crashes.
Any ideas? I tend to think its something in the network part of it. Note, my much older and less powerful desktop is running Win 7 RC and has no issues with games. (I race in several rFactor Leagues)
Also the network here is very solid, a Buffalo 54G and all the laptops connect great, and like I said - no issues gaming with Win XP before.
I am not very good with PCs although I have changed the Power supply to my PC in the past!I have a Dell XPS15 Laptop (Specs included at the bottom). Will adding memory or changing the Graphics card work at all? Can I add any memory at all to make it work faster?

My XPS L702x recently slows down when i play video online or play game. My configuration is: i7 2630QM, GT555M, 6 GB.i played video online and played game ( Skyrim, COD, A.V.A online) smoothly. But for 2, 3 months ago, my laptop slows down and spikes very much. When i watch video online, the screen will freeze 3 to 8 seconds but the sound is still playing. And all games that have run smoothly before, now they lagged too much, for example in Skyrim, when i start a conversation with a NPC, the game will freezes 2,3 seconds, and in the combat it freezes everytime when there's a sound is played (i.e screams, sound of sword slashing, footstep).
I have Microsoft Security Ess, no Semantec, Kaspersky, Norton ... And i have re-installed the Win 7 ultimate, but nothing is fixed, i've updated all my drivers, BIOS, Graphic card, sound card, wifi.i can't do anything with my laptop now, even opening Google Chrome is not easy. I'm really stressed.My battery is broken, i use my laptop on AC adapter only, perhaps this is the cause but i don't think so. Because i have a HP Pavillion and the battery is out too, but the HP is not slowing down.
Laptop, model is "E1-531-B9604G50MNKS". Windows 8. I , its a overheating issue, that's not true at all.
I have turned off this feature where it overheats and it auto shutdowns though power opitons, yet, it still does it. I have never see a laptop so cold have a overheating issue so I cannot be that, lets move on.
This laptop is about a year old? This is my mums laptop and I upgraded it to 8.1, re-installed directX which was such a pain (after I tried everything and become desprate ), tried other games, restored it to factor new conditon, did disk error scans, started the **bleep** laptop up though Safe mode, upgraded the drivers, updated every single thing, did deframents. I have really done everything possible even little things from making the game windowed or running Comptibility mode. There is nothing else I can do. I have changed power options, yes. There is no way to fix this peace of **bleep** laptop my mum wasted money on, even the trackpad freezes from time to time while the laptop remains working this lasts for a few seconds. This is the second product of Acer my mum has bought and its not going really well, both of them were not that great and had issues but this is by far the worst state I have seen a laptop being in and now I don't know if its just windows 8 or Acer but from what I have heard as a pretty hard-core gamer windows 8 is not to bad so, acer... I use windows 7 on all my systems and I will probably install it on my mums laptop.
Right now I am limited to what I can do, I cannot download any updates or such for that laptop at the moment It has recently been retorted to factory new or refreshed because it would not start up.
We are not sending it away to get fixed (What a waste of money), if it comes to it my mum will use my HP not ACER laptop while I use my computer. My laptop is what 4 years old? Still works fine compared to this Acer laptop.
I was wondering if its possible to install games onto my laptops second HDD. Right now, its the D: drive. I tried installing BF2 to this drive but an error said its "unsafe." Is there any way around this? The HDD is a Hitachi HTS723225L9A362 ATA.
I have a new Studio 1537, Core 2 Duo T6400 (2mb cache), 250 GB HD, 3 GB ram, Vista Home premium and a Radeon HD 3450 with 256 MB dedicated graphics.
What sort of games will play on this.
I have a desktop PC that play a few games on, Splinter cell and Tour of duty. These games are quite old so only list XP as the operating system. Will they play on Vista and is the Radeon HD 3450 good enough.
What other shoot em up type games will play on this system.

I just want to warn you that you can never play games using Sony VAIO Keyboard, I tested all New VAIO models at store, and they all have the same Keyboard issue, and that's: Let's try FIFA 09 for example, while playing you'll see that there is a problem in the keyboard, when holding arrows Down and Right or Down and Left together to move players, then any letter button to (pass, sliding tackle, sprint or whatever else), the game doesn't response to the letter press.
To confirm that issue, open Word or NotePad, hold Down and Right or Down and Left together, then a letter button for example "s", the letter "s" isn't printed.
So you can never play games using Sony VAIO Keyboard, you have to get a GamePad or an external keyboard.
