Sounds like your graphics card is either faulty or overheated. Try looking inside your computer. Does your graphics port come from a card or directly on the board?

Hi i bought toshiba c640 laptop i want play gta game is it good to play or not pls tell me


Hi It would with better if you will use joystick controller to enjoy playing GTA , Its just like your playing game console by using joystick controller. You check the price of joystick controller for your computer online or nearest computer center

-The specification of your computer meets the system requirements and I believe that your not going to have any problem installing GTA also playing GTA.
Minimum System Requirements:

800 MHz Intel Pentium III or 800 MHz AMD Athlon or 1.2GHz Intel Celeron or 1.2 GHz AMD Duron processor
128 MB of RAM
8 speed CD / DVD drive
915 MB of free hard disk space
(+ 635 MB if video card does NOT support DirectX Texture Compression)
32 MB video card with DirectX 9.0 compatible drivers ("GeForce" or better)
Sound Card with DirectX 9.0 compatible drivers Keyboard & Mouse


Recommended System Requirements

Intel Pentium IV or AMD Athlon XP processor 256(+) MB of RAM
16 speed CD / DVD drive
1.55 GB of free hard disk space
(+ 635 MB if video card does NOT support DirectX Texture Compression)
64(+) MB video card with DirectX 9.0 compatible drivers ("GeForce 3" / "Radeon 8500" or better with DirectX Texture Compression support)
DirectX 9.0 compatible sound card with surround sound
Gamepad (USB or Joystick Port)
Keyboard & Mouse

Graphic Rendering The Real World


The real world is filled with complex objects: curves, textures, shadows, and especially the commonplace flaws found in everyday structures that make them real. The challenge for game developers is to duplicate these objects in a realistic manner. A character's face shouldn't look perfect, because there are always small blemishes, wrinkles, and other imperfections. Also, the physics of movement and interaction between objects in the real world have to be faithfully duplicated.

So the challenge for video card manufacturers is to create hardware that is able to support all of the programmatic techniques developed to present a realistically rendered world within a computer. When comparing video cards, you'll often run into terms such as bump mapping, anisotropic filtering, bilinear filtering, MIP mapping, etc. All of these (and others) are techniques implemented in the hardware that let game developers create realistic objects in their games. Let's take a very quick tour of what some of these terms mean.

GPU – Graphics Processing Unit; as video cards become increasingly complex, it pays to offload a lot of the heavy-duty visual processing from the computer's main CPU to what amounts to a mini-CPU on the video card. The video card's GPU does a lot of the computational heavy lifting required to render 3D graphics.

DDR – The term DDR is often used to describe a video card's memory. DDR stands for "double-data rate" and is a type of SDRAM used in video cards today. Double-data rate means this type of memory is able to move data on both the falling and rising edges of the clock cycle. DDR1 SDRAM is the most common memory in use with video card technology today and is able to move data in 2-bit chunks.

Again, the purpose here is to offload graphics rendering tasks out of the computer's main memory and CPU, hence the idea to equip video cards with loads of memory. Nowadays, a cutting-edge video card should pack 256MB of DDR1 or DDR2 SDRAM. Unlike DDR1, DDR2 memory moves data in 4-bit chunks, so data transfer performance is doubled. The newest video cards on the market today are beginning to adopt DDR2 memory.

RAMDAC – Your computer only understands digital, and your eyes can only see in analog. The video card RAMDAC's job is to bridge the gap between the digital and analog worlds and let the computer display analog images on the monitor. Faster RAMDACs (RAMDAC speeds are measured in megahertz) enable the computer to display higher resolutions on a monitor without annoying flicker.

3D Terminology – Today's video cards render highly realistic 3D images. To do this, video cards must faithfully reproduce what gamers see in the real world, including lifelike textures and realistic movements. There are a number of techniques implemented in both hardware and software that let video cards generate realistic 3D images. Let's take a look at a few of the most important:

Z-buffering – A technique implemented in the video card's memory that is used to store information about pixel location as fluid scenes are rendered. For example, if a pixel moves behind another, that information is stored in the Z-buffer.

Texel – Stands for "texture element." A texel is a graphics unit similar to a pixel, except it is used to define 3D graphics. Think of a texel as the base unit that defines 3D graphics.

Fogging – Technique used to simulate haze, fog, or smoke.

Trilinear filtering – Video cards use texture maps to apply textures, such as skin, surfaces, etc., to simplified models of objects called primitives. Essentially, these primitives are "colored" with textures stored in 2D images called texture maps. Textures must not only look realistic, they must also be adjusted, if need be, according to the position and movement of the object. Trilinear filtering is used to make this mapping appear more realistic.

Full-screen anti-aliasing – Anti-aliasing is used to smooth out transitions between pixels with different colors and reduce image "jaggies." This technique minimizes the jaggies at all resolutions.

Programmable vertex and pixel shading – These techniques allow the rendering of realistic lighting and shadow effects. For example, ATI's SMARTSHADER technology allows the implementation of DirectX 9 floating-point programmable vertex and pixel shading. NVIDIA's version is called CineFX.

DirectX 10 – This is Microsoft's latest version of the DirectX APIs that let video developers programmatically exploit the capabilities of existing video hardware. The API lets software developers quickly create games without having to know the intimate details of each

Just bought new speakers i know they work. but the sound through my computer does not work even through head phones. how do i fix this?


Check your computer if the driver of your sound card is installed by play a music/mp3 in your windows media player if no error your sound driver is installed already...if there is a error installed first your sound driver...you can check also your speaker to another computer with installed sound driver, if this working...your computer have a problem with your sound driver..

    Texture Freezing


    download a GPU monitoring tool here.. http://www.ozone3d.net/gpu_caps_viewer/

    check the temps for your video card... if it exceeds 55-60 degrees celcius. its probably heating up. try to upgrade the GPU cooling. "Palit, inno3d, galaxy" these brands usually has crappy cooling systems for their cards. Plus, the nvidia 9800 series is known to produce alot of heat.

    I've had a similar problem like yours... I've had a 9800GT inno3d.. it has a crappy cooling system to i had to buy it a zalman graphics card cooling system. It solved the problem...

    Games wont respond ,says hardware accelarations is off. dont no how to fix it on my computer


    Try this, and let me know what happens. Go to start>run. In your run box type "dxdiag" without the quotes. When it opens up, click on the displat tab at the top. On the left hand side you'll see DirectX features. Make sure the DirecDraw Acceleration , Direct3D Acceleration, and the AGP Texture Acceleration is enabled. You might have something a little different depending on pc configuration but make sure everything in that category is enabled. You can test them if you like. There are buttons on the right to test them. If not enabled, enable them, click on save all information and exit. Try your game again. If this solves your problem PLEASE rate this as fixed. If it did not, do not rate yet. Just add a comment and let me know what happened. I'll be happy to assist you further. Thanks issac.
