It could be a power problem when playing games.
When a games starts up the graphics card starts to draw more power from the system.
Its could be that your graphics card might need replacing or that your power supply might need upgrading. PC systems, more so gaming systems, like to have alot of power.
Also before this I would try and download the latest graphics card drivers, to see if that helps the problem.

Hi, I use asus Pro T5750 series with processor Intel core 2 duo 2.0 GHz with windows 7 ultimate OS 32 I have installed 2 x 2 GB RAM but see, Installed 4 GB (3GB usable) In Bios I see 4096 MB. How I can...


Hi Trifon,
you are detecting a known problem for 32 bit operating systems.
The problem for those system is that they can manage maximum 3 Gb of RAM.
If you want all of your RAM used you have to install a 64 bit operating system. Windows 7 has also a version for 64 bit as well as windows xp (but is not good supported) and windows vista.

Just wondering if I can upgrade my ASUS F5RL M/B to 3Gb or even 4Gb RAM as Vista uses a lot. Thanks


The manufacturer states a maximum of 2 Gb of RAM for your laptop. And if you have a 32-bit version of windows it may only recognize up to 3 Gb, even if you put in 4 Gb. I would recommend not using more than 2 Gb, as this is what Asus recommends, though I've seen laptops such as yours work just fine with more. You know it would work fine with 2... anything more would be taking a chance that it may not remain stable while operating. So it's up to you if you want to try. If it mysteriously re-boots with 4 installed it won't actually hurt the machine. It's just annoying when it suddenly dies and re-starts while you're using it, and then you'll need to remove one of the mem. cards to bring it back down to 2.

I've got a HP Pavilion DV 9700 with 3GB RAM, it's running Windows 7 professional 32bit. It has a video card Geforce 8600m GS, I downloaded the drivers from the Nvidia web page but the driver doesn't seem...


ITS a NOTBOOK, with fixed GPU. (cant change that)
so what was this PC new. what OS? VISTA
and you put on w7?
if yes, did you look up the rules for w7 on that. first.
that is step one, btw.

i think your OS was changed from VIsta to w7
try the Vista driver below. it might work,.

so why not use the HP drivers,for your PC and leave nvida out.
if the HP drivers fails, due to wrong OS, the ask Nvida for help.
not HP. see? If HP does not support w7 , asking them is fail.

first get right 32bit and 64bit, do that first. then pick W7
then pick GPU driver.
ask HP no matter.
they had Nvida chip or Intel, using the wrong chip driver is FAIL

HELP!! my computer screen keeps going black when i play games :(


There is probably something wrong with the card. You updated the drivers
after the problem ,,right.

You have 3GB ram so that is ok. Your cpu and video card are just fine,
so the most possible would be the card is failing.

I have posted a stability test and a benchmark/ stress test for you to check the card, download the one for your OS, xp, vista.

If the card is going, it will act up when you test the card.

I have a problem with fps. When i bought my acer 5315,the fps was good when i played games, but suddenly the fps dropped to 2-8. I have tried updating all the drivers and stuff and dont know what to do


Games always need RAM and Graphics cards to keep the frames from stuttering.Your Acer
Manufacturer: Acer Product MPN MPN Aspire 5315-2153 Key Features Processor dtrquestion.gif Celeron M 1.73 GHz Hard Drive dtrquestion.gif 80 GB Serial ATA Display 15.4 in. WXGA+ TFT Active Matrix Processor Processor Type dtrquestion.gif Celeron M Processor Speed dtrquestion.gif 1.73 GHz Memory Installed RAM 1 GB
is low on both.Win XP x32 likes 3GB of RAM and Vista wants even more.The Frames Per Second is purely a Graphics Processor Hog.
This is from Fixya website;
http://www.fixya.com/support/t1531241-acer_5315_series_laptop_get_better
Your graphics card "is" built in and cannot be upgraded.The latest drivers "from Intel" is your only option for an upgrade. To be less graphics intense decrease your screen resolution by right clicking your "desktop" and clicking "properties" then "settings".Move the pointer left one click "screen resolution".The screen will jump around a bit while it's resetting,hit "apply" and "ok".The resolution will now be less but your game will speed up-some-ultimately this laptop is not built for fast paced games.Sorry bout the news,take care!

OS not showing full RAM


Hi Shibbymusic, as with most Asus boards if not all! The MB
A8N-E does not show all of your 4GB memory. See this FAQ;
http://support.asus.com/faq/faq.aspx?SLanguage=en-us&model=A8N-E&os=17
Like you, I too have 4GB of memory.
Asus A8N32-SLI Deluxe w/4GB memory only see's 3GB
The bios displays 3GB during boot up & so does windows XP 32bit.
You might want to think about upgrading to 64bit os.
Updating your bios should help as well.
(See A8N-E Bios version 1010); http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?modelname=A8N-E&SLanguage=en-us

Thank you for using fixya!
