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.)

Gaming and laptops really dont go well together. It either comes to a performance issue or a heat issue. Now don't get me wrong you can game on a laptop but your performace will most likely suffer greatly.

Hey all,
I'm moving into a cramped apartment with 3 other people next year and won't be able to make room for my behemoth of a CRT monitor. (plus its a pain to move it around)

So, I'm planning on getting a LCD monitor to replace it, strictly for gaming purposes, and was wondering what you guys could recommend! I really have no idea where to start.

My gaming rig is top-notch and I'm willing to spend around $500 for the monitor. Oh, and I prefer quality over size.
Any comments, suggestions, and recommendations welcome!

Does a full-height card fit or is it a slim-line case? Hard to tell.
If a full-size card would fit a 7600GT would be about the most I would think of doing (best option).
If only a low-profile card fits your options are very limited. This is the best cards that would fit:

There is a 7600GS low-profile but none I can see in stock (US).

what is the best gaming graphics card that i could buy for a price around ?100 (bit more or less) bearing in mind the power supplier i currently have is a 400w power supplier

thank you

A:recommendation for budget gaming graphics card

You are likely more limited by a 400W PSU than your budget. First check you vendor and sort by price, then check the specs for the one with 400W or less minimum PSU.
An nVIDIA 650 of some kind may fit you well.

I'm finally deciding to cash in my behemoth CPU for a nice little notebook computer. Problem is, I've always built my computers so I really don't know which company to get my laptop from! Basically I want to spend around 1000-2000 dollars, and I won't be gaming at all on the notebook. I'll be mainly using it for web-browsing, media, and school work. My only real requirement is that it needs to have a DVI port.

Oh and it wouldn't hurt if it looks slick too

I have a Dell mini-laptop - model Inspiron Mini 1018 with a Windows 7 Starter OS, N455 1.66GHz and 1GB of RAM.
Since the day I've first used it, it has been extremely slow.

It takes softwares a long time to go up, opening a video with Media Player Cassic can take almost 40 seconds, browser windows are annoying, and I actually can't watch any Youtube videos since it is so slow it's stuck every half a second (not buffering, just stuck)

It seemed weird to me that Dell would manufacture and sell such a thing, and tought it might be just the way mini-laptops are, but after seeing it wasn't like that with other laptops, it guess it's just mine.

Would you maybe reccomend something I can do to get a better use out of this thing? maybe lower the OS to XP, or maybe there's a "lighter" version of W7 or W8?...

Thank you in advanced.

Well seeing as how you want to go with Lenovo, my suggestion based on the fact you want to do lots of things graphical and such that you will need a decent enough laptop. In this case, here is my recommendation based on your budget.

Its got Dual GPU graphics for when you need that horsepower, a good CPU (Haswell i7), and plenty of HDD space (Its a Hybrid Drive so its got decent response time).

Its a good Lenvovo PC and its portable so if your wanting something to carry around, have some decent power, and be made by Lenovo then you not going to do any better at this range.

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.

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.

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.

I was looking to get another pc and I was thinking of getting a laptop or "desktop replacement." 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.

I was originally in the 4-500 dollar range, but i thought if i sold my 360 and all its games might be able to get something more.

Whats frustrating me is that pretty much everywhere i go, its the same thing as in the 4-500 dollar range except with a dual core i5 instead of a dual core i3 (they are both dual core, clock speed doesnt matter that much to me).

What is the best laptop i can get? i dont need to run the most graphically intensive games, but i want to have a fast laptop and be able to play skyrim on high ish settings.

I mean, a 520m is good, but i can get a laptop with that for 500...same with APUs, etc.
So i want BETTER.

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?

Any info would be appreciated, thanks.

I'm sorry if this is in the wrong area but it seemed best suited.

I am looking to buy a laptop for games. My budget is around $1400. I was thinking about getting an alienware m14x that is essentially the middle one on their website and thought I should get a more expert opinion before making such a large purchase. If anyone has any suggestions about what laptop to get or how to build the m14x the best I can on my budget it'd be very much appreciated.


A:Looking to buy a gaming laptop

Hello Fjork and welcome to the forums

I'm not familiar with the m14x, but I'll have a look at the specs and reviews now.

Have you considered a gaming desktop at all? Just to confirm, so I can look at prices etc., are you from the states?

The m14x is highly customisable so it would help us if you told us the specs you were thinking about getting

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.

Can anyone tell me how good this GPU is for gaming laptop, what its expected performance in games. Can i run BF3 on high for example:


I'm struggling to find any information on the internet such as reviews and comparisons especially FPS?


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.

Would really appriciate any help anyone can give with a few links and stuff


A:Gaming laptop

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

If I try to play a graphic intensive game such as Fallout 3, it tends to lag/stick a little during the game but not all the time, just periodically. I'd like to be able to devote all the pc resources to the game, is there a way I could set up a second account on the laptop with a certain minimised start up, so that the laptop would be able to run the game comfortably with nothing going on in the background?

Am running Vista with 2GB ram and have an nvidia card but I think it is shared memory which may be part of the problem. I figure if I can minimise the programs running in the background I should be able to improve performance slightly, is this right?

A:Laptop lags a little during gaming

Try it out. Create another administrative account, open msconfig.exe (Run, type "msconfig", press enter), open Startup tab, uncheck everything else than drivers(nWiz, nvmctray, the nvcpl can go, then any audio drivers you have, don't disable them). If you're unsure, google all uncertain entries in the list, you should be able to determine what they are), you might want to disable antivirus and firewalls too, just disconnect from wireless (and wired, if you're at it), while using that account to game.
Another reason could be slight overheating. You could want to try running with the laptop elevated a bit from the surface it's on, for example put books on the sides to raise it(if there aren't vents on the sides. Put the books or whatever anywhere where there isn't a cooling vent/grill)... If this seems to help, you might want to get a laptop cooler (a box with fans or passive coolers that helps keep the laptop a bit cooler)

Hey all, I am getting a new laptop in a few days, and my budget is $400. I want one fit for gaming, but not going above $400 dollars. I would like something with atleast a 2.0 GHz and atleast 4 or more GB of RAM. I saw some on best buy, but they were all out of stock (I wonder why? A laptop like that for $400 would obviously be a GREAT choice!). If you guys could recommend me something I can buy online, that would be GREAT! Thanks!


A:$400 Budget for a laptop fit for gaming

Fit for what games?

At what settings?

What are your hopes? What are your expectations? I'm wondering about the difference between the two.

hey all,

i just got a free laptop from a friend of mine, it's an "Acer Extensa 5513WLMI"

What i want to do with it is to upgrade it for gaming, so my question is would it be worth it to upgrade the laptop for some gaming, or just buy a new one xD ? and if its better to upgrade any ideas what would be good for it and at a low budget ?

Current Specs:

- 2Gb Ram
- Intel core 2 duo T5500 1.66ghz
- Intel Media Accelerator 950 [Gfx]
- 120 gb HDD

A:Upgrading a laptop for gaming?

I would sell it and put the money towards a budget gaming PC. It takes a very specific laptop to play games on, and they are all VERY expensive. The few things you could upgrade on that aren't worth upgrading to be honest.

Hey guys, I'm planning to get a laptop for general stuff and gaming. It's important to me that I can play PC games that aren't too intensive graphics wise. I need a laptop that can run games like Skyrim, TF2 and some MMOs at preferably medium to high settings (but I could go for med to low). The laptop I've found is here:
ACER V5-552 15.6" Laptop
Processor: AMD A10-5757M (2.5GHz, 3.5 GHz with Turboboost, 4MB L2 cache)
Storage: I TB HDD (5400 rpm)
6 GB RAM (DDR3) Up to 12 GB installable RAM
Graphics Card: Integrated Radeon HD 8650G
Resolution: 1366x768
OS: Windows 8(.1)
Is this going to work well with fairly easy games or could I go even more intensive for games like Crysis 3 and BF4?
Thanks for your help,

A:Acer V5-552 Laptop For Gaming

That processor is OK for gaming but the built in GPU is a little low if your expecting high settings even at 720p (With a decent framerate of course). On a game like Crysis 3 Which is so heavy on GPU's, you will likely only get low on that. As for BF4, I can say Medium 30+ FPS at that resolution. If you want a gaming grade laptop, your going to have to jump up a few notches for performance.
This is a medium-low end gaming laptop designed more for people playing not as intensive games as your listing. If you have a budget, could you list it and we will make some alternative solutions. Im assuming around $550 since newegg lists that laptop for that price, but with only 384 stream processors your not going to get far with that even at 720p except on the low settings. BF3 for instance on the 7660D (Which is just the 8650D essentially) runs at 58FPS average on low settings on a 720p monitor.

Was not sure where to post this since the Gaming Forum is listed under the Software section. Anyway, so my son's birthday is coming up soon and I'd like to get him a nice gaming headset in the $50-75 range. I have done a lot of research but there are a ton of mixed reviews on so many different makes and models. So I come here looking for your input.

1. I am looking for decent build quality especially concerning the mic and headband. I have lost count of how many people reporting loose to frayed wires that makes the mic useless after two months.

2. Over the ear and not on the ear. Trying to eliminate ear fatigue as much as possible.

Not sure what else to ask. Thanks.

A:Need Gaming Headphones for Laptop

Do you want your kid to be silent to bystanders when he's using them? He'll need 'closed-back' headphones. Otherwise, 'open-back' gives better sound overall, but leaks a little.

Some good brands are Turtle Beach or Razer. I don't know of any specific models, but I have the Razer Carachias and it's pretty damn neat.

Don't bother with 'surround sound' gimmicks.

Hey guys
whats a good notebook/laptop for gaming just under $1000
for a college student

A:Gaming laptop for college

I'd recommend checking out the Dell XPS 17 L702X, which gets a good write up in the linked review. It should weigh in just less than 1,000, although it depends on the exact spec you choose, of course.

The only downside is it's a fairly chunky portable, but if you want a laptop that can really play games decently, then you're likely to end up with some pretty hefty (or something pretty expensive!).

The big plusses with this Dell seem to be the sound and screen, which are obviously two important elements for gaming, as well as the raw processing/gpu power.

Anyway, hope that helps...

Gamers like to have the maximum amount of power, memory and other features available, They become more expensive than anyone else?s. This Asus G50V looks good it offers a cool looking body and a massive amount of features and specifications. The G series is a brand that is committed to gamers and their machines.It has INVIDIA GeForce 9700M GS - 512 MB and now available in india with os- Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium

I think it would depend on the game as some online games don't support integrated graphics.

I want to buy a laptop for gaming, and I have a budget of around 1000 or 1100 dollars. I was looking at one laptop in particular. Here are the specs.:

Asus X83Vm-X1
2.26 Ghz dual core processor Pentium
NVIDIA GeForce 9600M GS with 1GB of dedicated GDDR3
320 GB hard drive @ 5400 rpm
14.1" screen

Is this a good option for playing games like Crysis and GRID or is there a better choice for under $1100?
