Preferred Solution: Laptop Gaming Question.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A:Gaming laptop question.

Updating BIOS won't do a thing unless there is a very specific reason to do so. It certainly won't help any "lag" problems.

Is the "lag" due to your machine, or could it be simply a lag in internet communication? How fast is your connection?

You might also check to see what else you have running that you can shut down. WMI can slow things quite a bit if running. It needs to run, but you can pause it from a command line:

net pause winmgmt

You should not need to restart it since it will start itself, but if needed:

net continue winmgmt

Something like Bitsum's Process Lasso is also useful (or the free ProcessTamer--the free version of Lasso works well). You could lower the CPU priority of processes you need to keep running but that do not need CPU priority and raise the priority of the game to above normal or high (never use "realtime"--it will lock the machine and you won't be able to do anything). Lasso has a gaming mode. The developer is a very honest and hard-working individual who is always making improvements based on user feedback. Keep an eye out for the frequent updates if you use it. I have it on every machine I own. Once you get your settings the way you want, you can shut down the main program, freeing up yet more CPU, and leave the service running in the background to enforce the priorities. I run it under Local System credentials, but it works fine under any administrative credentials, too.

At a minimum you need to also buy a cross-over ethernet cable to connect those two integrated ethernet adaptors. The cable you buy will likely say "ethernet" and/or "Cat5" on it; the key is to make sure it says "cross-over."

Lots of tutorials available on home networks. Search in Help and Support Center or on the web.

what cpu from the 2 below would be better on a rig built for gaming only (with some web browsing on the side)

this Intel Core 2 Duo E8500 3.16GHz (dual core)


this Intel Core 2 Quad Q8200 2.33GHz (quad core)

both are $189 and about cap's my budget, please post if you have an answer with an explanation


A:Easy cpu question concerning gaming

personally i would go with the 8500. i dont no of any games that really takes advantage of 4 cores.. the higher clock frequency is a plus for gaming. E8500 can power an ati 4870x2.. so u wont need to worry about its performance and i know of E8400 overclocked to 3.6ghz which is sweet for gaming.

however if u want true multitasking then go with the quad..

i recently got a system with a e8400 and a ati 4850 graphic card.. its a pretty impressive system. the dual cores allows for good multitasking and the higher clock speed really shows when playing games.

what graphic card are u planning to get? cause thats where i'd try to spend my money..

Hi all. So I was wondering if you guys had any opinions on gaming headsets for pc. My headphone jack for my computer isn't working so I don't think I can use any wired headsets (if I'm wrong on this please let me know). So I was looking into wireless ones, preferably $100 and under. The three I narrowed it down to were the corsair 2100, turtle beach px4 or 5 (from amazon or ebay) and the PDP afterglow kral. Anybody have any opinions on any of these ones or any other ones you would recommend? Thanks for any help on this!

I have a brand new Linksys wireless router that works fine on my desktop computers. And when I attempt to connect my Xbox 360 or Playstation 3 to the internet it notices and picks up on my wireless connection. But when I try to connect it repeatedly tells me there is a DNS error for both systems and fails. The exact same thing happens whether im connecting them to the router wirelessly or with an ethernet cable.

My router is a Wireless N Gigabite router from Linksys, and my ISP is AT&T. Even when I attempt to manually input all the DNS information into the systems is still tells me there is an error.

A:Gaming Computer Question

You could build your own system for alot less then what you would pay retail for that HP desktop. Also that CPU is not that great. I bet that system listed above is more then $650 am I right? Also that GPU sucks for gaming or anything else for that matter. Intergrated GPU's run off of the cpu which in turn slow the whole computer down.

I will confess. I love my game Diablo II but I don't know donkeys about computers. The speed of the game is directly related to what kind of mood I'm in. I heard that if you load the all CD files to your hard drive, the game will be relatively faster. Right now, Diablo II is the only game I play and would like to load Diablo II on my computer so I don't have to use the CD. IF anyone could help me out, it would be great!

NOTE: I don't know alot about computers so if you try to help me, please keep the computer lingo very simple. Thanks! =)

A:Seems like an easy question to answer regarding Gaming

If you do a full install of DiabloII it will install all the files needed for the game on your hard drive, including music and video. The only reason it should then require your cd is for the anti-piracy cd check, which doesn`t actually load anything from the disk, it just checks that you have an original copy.

Did a fresh install onto the new SSD of Win7 Ultimate x64. Using the SSD as the boot drive, and plan on installing my games on my WD Velicoraptor 300 GB drive. TRIM support is on, and I made sure i turned off any defragging on the SSD.

When I ran Left 4 Dead 2 (Which normally runs flawlessly at highest quality), i noticed stuttering at random intervals. I restarted and tweaked some settings, seems to be a bit better, but i am not sure that sounds normal.

Anyone have any tips or setting tweaks for the SSD that would help me out?

Sorry if im posting this in the wrong forums, My monitor is giving me trouble & i was thinking of buying a new widescreen monitor but since the majority of my games are older titles (Age of Empires, Baldurs Gate, SW KotOR etc.) in worried about how these older game will look on a widescreen, I dont wanna spend $200+ on something and my games look like a funhouse mirror, I do have some games that have widescreen support (Warcraft, BF2142) but i still wanna be able to play the older games that i still enjoy.

A:Gaming on widescreen monitors question

If the games are a bit older, they might look pretty messed up on a widescreen (from what you're used to). Check to see what your games maximum resolution is, and see if it is the same as the maximum resolution of your monitor. If not it may look weird.
It MAY look weird if for example the game's resolution is at 1024x768 and the monitors max resolution is 1440x900
It WON'T look weird if for example the game's max resolution is 1920x1080 and you've set it at 1440x900 and the monitors resolution is 1440x900.

Here's a quick question for you;

I have my operating system on my IDE hard drive and my music and film collection on a SATA drive. I was wondering if it would make games run better if i installed and ran from the SATA driverather than the IDE drive...?

Okay first of all, my laptop doesn't have the sound card to provide 7.1 surround sound, it does however have Dolby Surround Sound, so I was thinking if I purchased a 7.1 surround sound headset, how can I configure each speakers on it? Since currently the only audio channel I have is Stereo.

The headset is plugged in by USB, so it must act like a sound card on its own, if I plug in the USB headset, will it provide me another audio channel for 7.1?

The headset is a Razer Megaladon.

A:7.1 Surround Sound Gaming Headset question

Hello PinoyForTheWin.

Razer devices a pretty powerful when it comes to hardware performance/gaming. They are also well known for providing complex drivers for their products.
My guess is that when you'll install the headset, the driver software will provide you some advanced options to choose from.
Among those, there should be some setting to enable the 7.1 sound experience, by overriding your standard sound card settings, and applying its own.
I cannot however guarantee this as a 100% go, it's just a thought to help you decide what to do next.

Good luck

I just bought a new laptop, it's Toshiba L300. I loved it so much, but then I tried to run Sims 2 in it and it's so slow even though I already lowered all the settings, it's still slow. Now my questions is: Can I increase the specs of my laptop so I can play games in it especially Sims 2 and 4?

A:Is it possible to make my laptop a gaming laptop?

Laptops are very difficult to upgrade. If money was no object, you might be able to do something, but practically speaking you are stuck with what you have.

There are "gaming" laptops, but they are quite expensive compared to a desktop. And they are prone to high temperatures and expensive to repair.

Of course all choices will be yours. I have never heard of a $50.00 gaming motherboard. The first tool you will need is knowledge. Some web sites that can help. These sites will list many motherboards and the information you need to choose one. Many of the subject motherboards are costly. Your not their to choose between a $200.00 or a $300.00 motherboard but to gather knowledge so you can choose between a $50.00 or $75.00 motherboard.

Did you manage to get this online 3D game running in 3D?

From my knowledge depending on game, it does not work with glasses free 3D mode and work with 2D mode.

In your case I would recommend testing the glasses free 3D mode in connection with other games too.

I have a question. I have 4 gigs of ram running in my system. While running the 4 gigs at once i can't get the 1T timing. Only when i use just 2 gigs can i get the 1T timing. Benchmarking with SiSoftware Sandra while using 2 gigs at 1T gives me a bandwidth of 5700 mb/s. With the 4 gigs at 2T i get about 5400 mb/s. I was wondering for gaming which would be more beneficial? Does the extra 300 mb/s make a big difference in performance at all?

My son just purchased the above router with the idea to replace our long running ISP hobbled iConnect Access router.

It appears however, that the new D-Link router needs to be daisy-chained to the iConnect in order to properly function. Is that correct?

Am I to believe then, that the iConnect Access router is integral to the operation and that replacing it with the D-Link DGL-4300 is a mis-guided notion?

My son is an avid-gamer and seems to be really keen on the new router but I'm a bit confused about the need for two routers .... the original iConnect has 4 ports as does the new D-Link one ...

Thoughts anyone?

A:Question re: D-Link DGL-4300 Wireless 108G Gaming Router


This is a fairly normal situation. Just put the iconnect router in bridge. That makes it a pure modem. Just check the manual and it will explain how.

Then run the dlink using pppoe client on the WAN interface. This then becomes the only router in the network. The iconnect simply bypassed for everything except the modem.

Next time, try to post in the correct forum too

So I compared these two laptops but I can't tell which one is better for gaming (I have very little knowledge about this things). Can somebody please help me?

A:Gaming laptop

I am not a professional but I do like playing games online with my grandkids. Two things I see that really make a difference for gaming are RAM and a graphics card. The purchase of my last laptop I got 12GB RAM and a 2 GB NVidia graphics card. I would say a minimum of 4 GB RAM and 1 GB graphics cards would be what you want to keep the game running properly...and for some online games that may not be enough. If you have a particular game you like to play, check on their website and see what their minimum requirements are. Then you might want to get a little better than that if you want good graphics on the game.

I'm getting some lag on Portal when graphics are maxed. I'm thinking my GPU is the bottleneck here, but here are the specs:

8 GB 1333 MHz DDR3 RAM
Intel Core i7 740 QM
ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5650 1 GB GDDR3
500 GB 7200 RPM HDD
1920x1080 OLED multi-touch LCD

Also, it gets pretty hot when I'm running like this. My laptop is barely thicker than a netbook which makes me wonder if a more powerful GPU will even fit in there.

A:Laptop Gaming

There's no point thinking about other GPU's unless the 1 you have is removable which I doubt it is. The GPU (and subsiquent memory) is mounted on the mainboard.

The main problem is that 'mobile' GPU's just don't have the same power as their desktop counterparts and as such, running high performance games/apps will require more than the mobile GPU can offer (depending on in-game settings).

Saying that, you have a very impressive laptop and i'm now highly jealous but i'd look at lowering some of the in-game/app GFX settings and see if the problem still arises.

Another thing to note (and it's just me having my 'standard' head on lol) is that you need to make sure that all fan/heatsync ports have plenty of space as this can cause overheating.

I got my gaming laptop a few years ago and haven't had any problems running Saints Row 4 on max..
I like my Asus ROG (Republic Of Games) G73JW.
It's pretty big and heavy to haul around though. They have several configurations of the new model.
You might be able to find an older model like mine on Amazon a little cheaper than a current ones.

You concerned about battery life, size, or weight?
Fair warning, most "gaming" laptops have very poor battery life and are often heavier than regular laptops.

Just pick a few and read reviews of them. Amazon, Newegg, places like that. see if the positive comments overwhelmingly beat the negative. Even then, remember some new items can be bad or the person just didn't know how to setup or use it right. Read both, positive and negative on the ones your considering, then just go for it.

Are you completely sure you want a laptop rather then a desktop? They're hot, have a relatively short lifespan, lack upgradability and will be considerably less powerful then a desktop of equivelant price.

If you're sure it's got to be a laptop though, Dell and ASUS are both of a reasonable quality, Alienware make some of the best high end ones but are a bit outside your budget.

Hello Everyone!

I've purchased a laptop today off tigerdirect for some gaming since my PC that I have now is ancient and can only run WoW on low settings, it's awful I know. I wasn't looking to go all out, but I did spend about $600 with tax/shipping.

I don't know much when it comes to GPU and their models I've come here to ask for your expertise. I'm looking to run WoW, Diablo 3 and some other games off of Steam.

Here's the rig.

Acer Aspire AS7750G
It has:
- 17,3" - 44 cm HD+ LED (1600 x 900)
- Intel Core i5 2450M (2,5 GHz, 3 MB L3)
- 4 GB DDR3 1066 MHz (with empty slot)
- 500 GB SATA 5400 rpm
- AMD Radeon HD 7670 1 GB Dedicated
- 6-cell Li-Ion, 49 W battery
Can someone tell me what to expect running Diablo 3, WoW and some of the newer games out?

Similar performance. Just a matter of chipset preference. Intel/nVidia or AMD/ATI

Any body help me find good laptops for should be dell

A:Gaming laptop

Personally, I'd stay away from Dell; they have a bad track record when it comes to support.

If you're looking for OEM companies, Asus is the best in my opinion; their laptops are reasonably priced and come with some pretty good components.

If you want to try something different, go with a system builder; XoticPC is pretty good according to reviews. I've talked with their customer support and they are fantastic. They'll help you make a pretty good build, and their prices are not too crazy. They're a bit more expensive than other system builders, but the extra price is worth the great support and reassurance that what you get has been quality tested, will work to your satisfaction and also give you a great warranty.

If you're steadfast about Dell, then go with the XPS series and get at least a 15 inch laptop; anything less than that is not gonna do you justice in the parts nor the screen resolution.

A:Gaming Laptop

You should compare the laptop to the system requirements of any game you want to play. It's always a good idea to buy above the minimum, as high as possible, so that the laptop will not be obsolete when the next games come out.

But laptops in general are not meant for gaming. They are designed for portability and low energy use. Some exceptions exist, like Alienware and Origen PC.

A:Looking to buy gaming laptop

If you can, look into Eurocom to see what you can get for your budget. They have some good laptops and are fully upgradable usually.

Other than that, I've had 2 MSI's and loved 'em. Asus G75 and up series are good and get really good reviews so they're also an option.

IMO I wouldn't really go Alienware or Razer, because like you said they're fairly overpriced for what they are.

The MSI's (and Asus that I had) were all 17" and it was nice for a gaming laptop. You can always hook up a larger display, but for mobile gaming, 17" IMO is plenty fine. One thing you'll definitely want is A GOOD BACKPACK! I carried around 17" gaming laptops for 3 years at college...and I can't stress enough at getting a good / comfortable backpack. Spend the cash to get one with plenty of pockets/storage (you'll be carrying a power brick with you for sure), for laptop, books, accessories.

I've been looking around at all the custom sites like adk and puget and I'm not really sure what to look for. I've also been looking at those Dell XPS laptops. Basically what I'd like to know is a) what's the difference between the different processors available b) what should I look for in a graphics card and c) how do I know I'm getting a good deal. As far as graphics go, I'm looking to play next-gen stuff like UT2k7 and whatever else's coming out in the near future. Thanks in advance for any info.

A:Looking for gaming laptop

in my opinion... Alienware makes the only "real" gaming laptop. I say this because they use desktop CPUs (Athlon64 FX and Athlon64 X2), where as other so-called "gaming laptops" such as the Dell XPS models use the Intel Pentium-M CPU. Athlon64 CPU's by design are superior to Pentiums... especially when it comes to gaming.

To sujest anything for you however, we need to know how much you are willing to spend.

Whatever you decide to do, you need to realize that laptops are generally not upgradeable (except for adding RAM, or a mini-pci card). So what may be a top-of -the-line laptop today, will still be a nice machine in 2 years.... but will not be able to play the newest games anymore.

So... I have about $1500 to spend on a decent gaming laptop but I'm not sure what I should get. I know I want Blu-Ray, 18" screen with 1920x1080, able to play crysis, unreal tournament 3, sins of a solar empire, sims 2 and also be able to watch full screen movies from places like I kinda like the Sony VAIO AW series but want to know if there was a laptop with a tad bit better processor.

A:Gaming Laptop

Maybe the Gateway P-7801u. It has a 1920 by 1200 screen, and a 9800M GTS graphics card, which beats the VAIO. There's no blu-ray, but you could get an external drive.

Hey guys! I am looking for a gaming laptop that would be handle games like BF3, TF2, L4D2, Etc. but I am having trouble finding out what would be the best computer for the lowest price. I need some suggestions! The cheaper the better and the appeal is important to me. I would like to be able to run the games listed above with like 60+ fps. Please leave some suggestions

A:Gaming laptop under $1,000

Option 1:

Has a GTX660M, 8GB of RAM, 3rd Gen i7, and a 1080P display. It comes with Windows 8 since the Windows 7 ones are gone. I wouldn't recommend this at this moment since last week there were 2 other models with a 500GB HDD @7200rpms, which is what you want, not 5400RPM. They are sold out though, maybe they will replenish for xmas since revenues will be released for Q4 soon, or maybe not. Also the 660M may struggle at 60fps on BF @ 1080p, it will play high at constant 40-50 fps (guessing from past experience but not completely sure)

Option 2:

Chose from the configuration you would like. This is MUCH more custimizable and they are great laptops, I would recommend this more.

My old laptop finally went "kaput", now I'm looking for a gaming laptop. I've been looking into some Alien Ware computers, but they seem to have a lot of negative sides to them (from the reviews I've been reading that is).

Would any of you have any recommendations?

I was looking to spend no more than $1300.

Hey guys, I'm looking to buy a new gaming laptop for about £800 and so far i've come across these two systems.
Now the version from Overclockers seems to have everything i want while the one at Novatech will need an OS adding to it and the hard drive upgraded which will cost another £100 on the listed price.

So as you can see the Novatech system will cost more but thats not what i'm really fussed with, I want to know which system will be best for gaming and video editing. If you have another system that you think i should look at then please link it.

Thanks guys. MDK.

I am looking for a laptop. It will be used for writing (Word). However, I will be using it for gaming. I won't play the latest games, but I want it to be able to play some of the good games. Budget £400-£600.

I like Lenovo thinkpads. So much choice, some of the graphic cards look weak. Not sure what to get. Dell?

I am getting a laptop for college and was wondering what is the best I can get for the price range of $900-$1300. I've been looking, but am having a hard time determining what will run the games I want since they are compared based on desktop configurations. I really want to be able to play the games Elder Scrolls: Oblivian, F.E.A.R., WoW, and Half-Life 2.

Thx for any help

A:Gaming Laptop Help

unfortunately Laptops designed with gaming in mind are very expensive. Alienware makes some and so does ABS. But they charge an arm and a leg for them. What you have to look at is what the system requirements are for the games and then look for a laptop that meets or exceeds those requirements. A budget of $1300 is not a lot I am afraid.

I am Tara Covell.
I have think to buy a good gaming monitor under $900. I like to playing online games regularly. So, would you tell me best gaming monitor which enhancing my gaming experience.
I have seen some articles. I see the Dell 15.6-Inch Gaming Laptop(6th Gen Intel Quad-Core i5-6300HQ Processor up to 3.2GHz, 8GB DDR3, 256GB SSD, Nvidia GeForce GTX 960M, Windows 10) under $900. 
So, tell me "it is good enough or not".

A:Gaming Laptop

As long as you realize that for under $1,000, you're going to be buying  a compromise between gaming and price, it's a decent system.  It will absolutely NOT allow you to play high-hardware-demand games without reducing the video settings -- the 960M is a capable chip but it's low-end these days where gaming is concerned.  
If you're looking for top-level gaming, double your budget for a notebook OR buy a desktop system.  $900 can buy or build a very capable gaming desktop with a very good 970 or 10xx GPU in it -- an order of magnitude better than any notebook available at that price point.
The rule of two still applies - a $900 notebook will give you the performance of a $450 desktop, or looked at the other way, you'll pay $1,800 or more for a notebook that gets you what a $900 desktop does.

how would a laptop with these specs:
Intel dual-core 1.46ghz
1GB DDR2 667
Intel GMA X3100

compare to:
Intel Celeron D 305 2.66ghz 256kb cache
Nvidia Geforce 6200 128mb DDR2 agp8X
1Gb PC3200 400mhz Ram
2X 40gb
(my current desktop)

I know neither one will be able to play any games from about 2004-present, but if you had to choose if one were better/worse which one? how much better/worse?

A:cheap gaming laptop

Well the laptop is faster than the desktop ones cause it has a dual-core cpu, and a faster ram speed, but laptops are mostly not really good for gaming, and it depends which game your going to run.

Hello! I would like to see the comments and reviews all of you guys can share about gaming laptops, since I'm planning to buy a Laptop for this purpose in the coming months I'll appreciate if you can say which is in your opinion one of the best brands (and not overpriced) for gaming.

I've keep my eye on the Dell XPS but I believe they are so expensive when you really add the customize good stuff to those. I've seen the ASUS have some good models for gaming, HP web site allows you to customize a decent gaming laptop without being so expensive, and there's also Fujitsu which some models include the ATI HD2600 which I believe is pretty good.

Please leave your comments about it. Thanks!
