i bought this laptop some time ago and it does not work with many games.
as soon as i start for example minecraft the screen starts to flicker and after 5 sec it shuts down the game. this happens with all games
does anyone know what to change so that i can play games? tried updating drives , getting windows 7.
my specs are
intel core 2 duo CPU T9500 @ 2.60 hz
4 gB ram
well its about 2.5 years old now. at first i only played world of warcraft and that worked 30% of the times.
when it didnt work the graphics were messed up as soon as i started the game.
Now about 3 months ago i was getting other games and they dont work. as soon as i start them up my screen starts flickering and the game shuts down
This is only with games that must be installed. flash games work fine. Everything works fine except video games. no problems with work and surfing the net and watching HD videos , although it tends to overheat
Do a Bios test of the harddrive before the computer fails. You may have something going inside that has nothing to do with the rest of the computer, but if it fails before you test it you'll be stuck guessing or (gasp) paying someone to check it. With those specs minecraft should run smoothly.
Oh, also, open up the computer and check to see that your hard drive and RAM chips are firmly in place. After that, when was the last time you dusted that puppy out? Can o' air fixes a lot of stuff.
