Slow performance while gaming

I'm facing this problem for last 2 months. Earlier the system was working good and i enjoyed gaming. But now when i start playing games, initially the system performs normally, but after a few minutes i hear a sound like fan or something starts moving fast within laptop and immediately the game starts hanging and this continues and then never comes to normal. ultimately everytime i had to quit gaming. The system works on 1GB RAM (Window Vista Home Basic), about graphic card i do not exactly know...Please help me resolving these problems:
1. Do i need to upgrade RAM?
2. Is it possible to upgrade RAM in Lenovo 3000 Y410 Laptops?
3. If yes, How much minimum RAM would you recommend for better results.
4. How much this would cost?

Laptop froze in mid-use. Tried to reboot. I cannot get past the login/welcome screen. I cannot click on anything or open any programs. Please help. This laptop is only 3 months old. Thank you!


There are many reason's why you are facing that problems. To deal with it, make it sure that your laptop is having a good ventilation and not overheated. You must have the ventilator so that it will blow away the heat of the processor and cooling down the hot laptop. Because if the assigned temperature reach the computer will get slow and freeze. Another reason is also the viruses, these viruses will make your computer slow and freeze so you must have anti-virus and latest or updated virus definition.

The remedy

1. When turning on your laptop tapping F8 and then select safe mode. To select you can press arrow up or down and when highlighted the safe mode press enter. In some cases there are appearing on your screen while loading just press enter, ok or yes. Try saving or back up your documents or files to your flash drive, external drive or second hard drive ( Partition hard drive). After back up, Click start and programs and accessories and system tools and look for system restore. System restore has the capability to restore your computer to a good and working condition. Just select the date example you have mentioned that it was 3 months old. Meaning to say that you purchased it last November or December so click that month and select the day then click ok this will take an hour and this will automatically restart and check after loading if still having freezing.

2. Most of the laptop has the recovery software insert it to your cdrom drive and run the recovery. Follow the screen and this process will also restore your computer to a working condition but this delete or erase your entire data. That is why you have to back up first before performing restoring.

Have a nice day

try updating the video card drivers on toshibas website. there are some games that you will not be able to use a high setting on. this system is a good unit but if you wanted better gaming performance would have recommended the x205-sli5 or sli6. the sli systems have two video cards that work together to give you the best possible performance.
