The black ops freezes in the same place over and again i escape the chair i get punced and that is as far as i get i have reinstalled the game starting over and did not work how do i get passed that?


The graphics card doesn't support this game. Many realistic type games "Highly Realistic Graphics" need the added performance of a dedicated higher end graphics card. Example: I'm a huge gamer and I play games that you could/would play on the Xbox One or PlayStation 4. So my Gaming Video Card cost me $480 US dollars. ( High End )
Look at the recommended, supported Video Card for Black Ops and go from that point "Note" If your computer is a laptop; chances are, you will not be able to do any video upgrades. You'd just be out of luck and your laptop wasn't made for higher end games. If it is a Desktop, you might be in luck. To upgrade a desktop: (1) Available video card slot (2) Does the computer case support a video card upgrade (3) What power supply does your computer have and what WATT Power supply does the new video card need. Most higher end video cards need a higher WATT power supply - So standard power supply 350 WATT - Video upgrade average 500Watt to 800Watt.

Hope this helps, Have a great night..

I bought an HP G62 i5 with a VGA card of 1.6GB with a dedicated video of 64MB, i want to increase the VGA card or change it(hardware) totally to 2.6GB and above with a dedicated of at least 1.6GB. Thanks


Hello there,
Unfortunately, it is very difficult to upgrade the graphics card on laptops. May of them are specifically made for your laptop model and may even be soldered onto the motherboard itself. That being said, you might want to take the laptop to a local tech shop to see if they can recommend any upgrades but i HIGHLY DOUBT that you will be able to upgrade it.
I hope this is helpful. Thumbs up are always appreciated.

Was wondering if it can be replaced with a better graphics card


This depends, mspolar1.

Depends on;

1) If it's a Desktop computer, or a Laptop computer.

Desktop computers may, or may not, come with Integrated Graphics.
For those desktop computers that do Not, a graphics adapter card is used.

(Graphics adapter card is also referred to as a Graphics Card, or Video Card)

Desktop computers that Do come with Integrated Graphics, will also have a graphics expansion slot to install a graphics card in.

2) Laptops generally just have Integrated Graphics, BUT there are some models that Do have a Graphics Card, and there is the possibility of upgrading to a better one.

The above relates directly to Toshiba desktop computers, and laptops, as well as a reference to all desktop, and laptop computers.

To explain Integrated Graphics:

Another name for Integrated Graphics is OnBoard Graphics.
ON the motherBOARD.

The graphics chip is soldered directly to the motherboard.

[ Chip and Chipset are slang terms for I.C.
Integrated Circuit,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Integrated_Circuit

A graphics chip has a GPU on it,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GPU ]

Integrated Graphics borrows some of the system's resources.
The Processor and Ram Memory.

The Processor and Ram Memory are trying to take care of the Operating System, and the program that is being ran.
Two Operating System examples are Windows XP, and Windows 7. An example of a program that may be borrowing system resources heavily, is a game.

If an intense game is being played, the system resources cannot keep up with the demand for graphics, when Integrated Graphics is installed.
(Slow frame rates, or freezing. Poor graphics. Even with low settings)

A dedicated graphics card borrows very little of the system resources, or none at all.
A graphics card has it's own Processor, and Ram Memory.
(GPU and graphics ram memory)

In direct reference to Toshiba laptop's, post the laptop Model Number to see if the graphics can be upgraded.
There are some Toshiba laptops where this is possible, and some that are not.
(Post in a Comment)

The one's that use Integrated Graphics, and no dedicated graphics card, are the ones that cannot be upgraded.

I`ve just bought a graphics card and i am struggling to install it in the mother board


hi this sounds like you may have bought the wrong type of graphics card for your motherboard, depending on the age of your motherboard they have changed over from AGP to PCI-e or even ePCI-e now if you have a slot that looks just like a PCI expansion slot at the top on its own away from the other ones, this will indicate a PCI-e or ePCI-e slot, if you have a brown slot at the top of the other ones this will be a AGP slot, just in case you have the right card, for the right slot, there is a locking clip at the end of the AGP slot that you have to pull to one side to put it in check to see if this is the case, then just do that.........hope this helps

If you plan to change the graphics card, then go in for a card that has a lot of dedicated RAM. Not shared. You may be able to do with 2 GB RAM on your PC. Ask the dealer specifically.

If the problem occurs right as the windows desktop comes up from a cold boot, it is not a cooling problem, the card hasn't had time to heat up yet.

You probably have a bad driver, download at http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx your series = Nvidia, model=en7200 series and install new drivers.

Also, check to make sure the card is fully inserted in the AGP slot, I've seen some odd things happen because of a loose card.

Ack graphics card wont fit in any input slots


the adapter u are using is pci express and the dell dimension 9100 are not compatible.. try returning it for either a pci (usually the white slot) or AGP which in most cases is brown.. the AGP will be your best performance.. if return is not an option.. then it seems that a new pc is in your best interest.

HELP FINDING A CARD TO FIT MY PCI SLOT


It is easy to get the PCI & PCIE stuff mixed up. PCI slots are all white doesn't matter who makes the board. PCIE however is all together different from a PCI slot. The PCIE slot sits fauther away from the back of the computer & so does a AGP. PCIE is a very long card. A PCI is not. The short slot you saw is also a PCIE slots. Not for video but more likely for network card. Most people never use them. Most likely the long slot above the short slot is a PCIE. So you want a card that is like what I'm going to list in this link.

Please list the model number of your Dell & I can tell you exactly what video card you need.
please vote... I'll check back in an hour or two.
