Gaming performance I had recently upgraded my PC with GIGABYTE GA-945GCM-S2L(S series) with intel dual core processor 2.0 fsb,160 gb HD,2 GB ram and now using Vista Ultimate but here most of the games can't be played. Games like Assasain's creed, NFS pro street,Ghost recon 2,Cell factor, Kyne and Lynch etc. when started something renderer error is given and it quits.In the self test area of the game the chipset,the pixel shaders are showing not supportable.I had tried in XP sp2 also but still the same persists.What should i do please help as I had upgraded it for gaming purpose and the dealer also convinced me for that?

I figure you are using he onboard VGA with your motherboard. Looking through the BIOS Setup for it, I don't see where it allocates a block of your RAM for use by the video (as a lot of MB's do). All you an do is set the frame size from 1mb to 8mb, max. I suspect the chipset is allocating RAM for the video on the fly.

Regardless, if you want good video performance, you should consider going to a separate video adapter, preferably one that is PCI Express, with a minimum of 256mb of RAM. This takes the load of video processing off the motherboard, and places it on a dedicated GPU, using its' own memory. The Nvidia chipset is popular and well-supported, but most any name brand will do the trick. Shoot for one with PC Express, and as much RAM on it as you can afford.

Hope this helps!

Cheers

Sir,i have install 3 sata hdd on my motherboard gigabyte 945 GCM-S2L 1. 160gb 2. 500gb 3. 1 tb. my pc many times hangs on bootup and freezes then i disconnect the cable to turn off. how to fix that...


Do extensive diagnostic tests:

1. Set BIOS to default settings and do not use overclock settings, check.
2. Memory test, download ISO image, burn it onto cd and boot from it.
If memory fails after several hours testing: Replace memory
3. Flash the latest (original)[beta] BIOS version.
4. Connect just one (1) harddisk and test for longer time. *
5. Add second harddisk and test for longer time. *
6. Add third harddisk and test for longer time. *

* If connecting or adding harddisk leads to freezes, exchange that harddisk and retest.

I have an ET1161-05- can it be upgraded to hold more memory and run faster?


Hi.
Yes, your computer came with 2 gig's of ram in the form of 2 1gig modules of ddr2 ram.

There are 4 slots for memory all together, and each slot can hold 2 gig memory chips in each one, for a total of 8 gig's of ram!

That would cause a serious performance improvement for you.

It also came with a 160 gb hard drive, so if you want to, you can get as larger drive as well.

As far as processors, a dual core, AMD Athlon 64 X2 5600+ Brisbane 2.9GHz 2 x 512KB L2 Cache Socket AM2 65W processor will fit in with absolutely no bios updates required, so all you would have to do is take the old processor out, put the new one in, and turn the computer on.
It will recognize the new processor automatically, and will work right away!

This will have a significant performance boost, possibly doubling the total speed of your computer.

I hope this helps you out, and have a good day !

* The system configuration of Acer Aspire 4720Z PC Notebook is :

160 GB or larger hard disk drive / 5-in-1 card reader / 512 MB or 1GB DDR2 533 MHz DIMM module / Intel Pentium dual-core mobile processor technology T2310 (1 MB L2 cache, 1.46, 533 MHz FSB), Mobile Intel GL960 Express Graphics Chipset.

* Your system have "Mobile Intel GL960 Express Graphics Chipset" graphics accelerator card embedded in the motherboard. Like most of the laptops/notebooks, there is no room for upgrading the graphics card in the motherboard!

* But you can upgrade the RAM upto 2 GB using two DDR2 DIMM memory modules.

* If you want to play 3D games with better performance, switch to Windows XP SP2 and upgrade the RAM!

* If you want to upgrade the memory (RAM), you can check this site : http://www.laptoppartsexpert.com/c-60093-acer-aspire-4720-series-as4720z.html

I want to know that shall i put pentium 4/ 2.4 Ghz/ 533 Fsb/ Processor on this Gigabyte 845GVM-RZ board? will it support ?and i have 1 Gb ddr1 400 mhz ram will this work on this Board?


Yes for the Intel Pentium 4/2.4GHz/533FSB processor. (Socket 478)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Pentium_4_microprocessors#Northwood_.28130.C2.A0nm.29

(Scroll through. What sSpec number is on top of the processor's case? {You are following Anti-Static Precautions, correct? }

Won't support better than a Prescott Core Pentium 4. (Next chart down)

The Gigabyte GA-8I ((Supports 400MHz or 533MHz FSB)

NO to the Ram Memory.
The Gigabyte GA-8I845GVM-RZ supports DDR Sdram at 333Mhz. (PC2700)
IMHO it will not support DDR Sdram at 400MHz. (PC3200)

My reasoning is this;

Ram Memory typically operates at half of the FSB frequency rate of the Processor.

Processor FSB > MAXIMUM frequency rate is 533MegaHertz for the GA-8I845GVM-RZ
Ram memory at 333MHz is doable.
Not 400MHz.

No, you won't be able to overclock, and bring the FSB of the Processor high enough for PC3200 Ram Memory.
(The rest of the motherboard wouldn't work anyway if you did. PCI Express bus, PCI bus, etc., would not match)

I have gigabyte series g31 m-es2L i want use memory pc 5300.... it's support with this mainboard ???? tx pls reply to : it_mid@yahoo.com


Hi,

First, clarification: the closest Gigabyte model is GA-G31M-ES2L... there is no "g31 m-es2L"

For this kind of question the easiest way to find the answer is from the manufacturer: Gigabyte

A quick search of their products results in:

http://www.giga-byte.com/Products/Motherboard/Products_Spec.aspx?ClassValue=Motherboard&ProductID=2889&ProductName=GA-G31M-ES2L

which states that up to 800mhz DDR2 (PC6400) is supported
( 667mhz (PC5300) is also supported. )

Generally with motherboards, if a higher speed of memory is supported, the lower speeds are also supported.

PS: mhz times 8 yields the PCxxxx number, PCxxxx divided by 8 yields the mhz number
