Games will cause more heat as they put your components under more stress. Make sure that you are not blocking any of the vents and also, check them for dust. Give them a vacuum if they are dusty. It sounds like there is not enough ventilation, which causes your computer to overheat and then to shut down.
Very few laptops allow you to change the video, it is integrated (built in) to the motherboard. All computers also have a maximum limit to the memory capacity based on the number of slots and the type and size of memory modules supported by the CPU.
The Acer Aspire 3624WXCi was a budget system with a Celeron 1.6GHz processor. The Celeron series is just not that good at video tasks, such as your flight simulator demands. The integrated video is an Intel Media Graphics Accelerator 900 with 128MB ram, not bad but not optimum for your applications.
The Acer Aspire 3620 series uses DDR2 memory and has two slots. Each memory slot can hold a maximum of 1GB, so the system is limited to 2GB of ram. If you are at this limit, it is true that you can not add more but must move onwards and upwards to a newer more powerful system.
the only way you can upgrade the graphics on a laptop is to purchase a graphics accelerator card that plugs in to the usb slot, its not an upgrade as such but it will allow you to play high res games on the laptop, there would have to be a memory upgrade to go with that also
Nvidia are doing some good laptop accelerators at the moment but they are expensive!!!
it sounds like the video card cannot support or handle the pressure put on it by the game you are trying to play, if it is an OEM game have a look for the minium system requirements that the game will run on, you can also find this information on line, you will probably find out that the graphics card doesn't support the game, do this check with all games you try to play another thing is to upgrade your memory because some laptops don't have a devoted graphics card thus they are relient on the system memory
the problem is not your hard drive, if you are using vista then there are compatbility issues with certain programmes, if yoou are using XP all you need to do is download the latest codecs, this also goes for vista, try not to use XP programmes with vista because you will run into problems
Ok concerning your internet, I am assuming you are using your wireless/card in the laptop right ?
what you need to do,is after you repair the problem and you get an ip address.. note all the information that shows up in the support..
now after you got that written down, click on general and then properties. DOUBLE CLICK ON Internet Protocol(TCP/IP)
Set the first option to Use The following ipaddress and enter
as the same thing you had written down.
Now turn on the option to use the following dns server address and set that to the same ip as your default gateway.
Concerning Your Audio,
Click Start / All programs / Acessories / Entertainment and then Volume Control
On Make sure that the master volume is only set to half, any more than that and your laptop speakers will distort, only set it to more if you are using an external speaker system..
You can also adjust the quality in the equaliser in windows media player.
When downloading large files save it to the desktop and then run it. The problem you experienced is when you lost connectivity for a bit..
