Question about Dell Latitude D600 Notebook

1 Answer

Gaming Woes Hi, I play games like Halo, Doom 3, and PSOBB but there are times when, while I'm playing the game suddenly slows down- BADLY, even at times to an extent of <2fps. But the thing is, after awhile of painfully slow gameplay everything returns to normal- only to happen again awhile later. It would be greatly appreciated if anyone can tell me why this is happening and/or how to fix it. My specs: Windows XP SP3; Intel Pentium M 1.8GHz; 1GB RAM; ATI Mobility Radeon 9000. Thanks in advance! -Kenji

Try going in to your power settings and change the power Scheme to "Always On". Your M processor may be slowing down.

Computer slow react


If your Hardware is pretty much compatible with game requirements than you have to go through some points before playing game to prevent your PC from slowing down:

- Shut down all running updates
- Remove all temporary files from your system
- You must have enough memory on disc that can support your paging memory
- Stop background running applications
- Run Reginout Utility for extreme gaming experience
- Update DX on your system
- Try putting all graphics on low

It seems that you have problems with your video card, that's a common problem with many HPs. Better go to a service center to fix it. And, the laptops aren't for gaming, if you want to play, buy a desktop.

This isn't a true gaming laptop, and the stresses hardcore gaming is putting on the chip is probably causing it to overheat. I'd guess its running at 90 degrees from what you describe and which is why its shutting down.
Download a copy of Everest system analysis and see what the CPU temp and MOBO temps are.

My laptop have a 1 gb but the games i installed is slow


Well with my knowledge and PC games is that it is more than just memory that plays a factor..
In some cases i have came to find out that it is based on Specs. Usually depending on the game, it will require you to have Directx 9.0 or higher and then some games require your system to have shader 2.0 or higher, but even with all those it still dont work, because it all falls back on the compatabilty, unfortunately the only solution i got for gaming when they play slow on mine is to get a more optimized system for gaming, and if your games are doing that it can be the compatabilty or just hardware too low to accomodate the gaming...
try checking the specs online and do a directx check on your system see which one you have and all..
quick note: to run a directx check, Go to start > then run > then type "dxdiag" in most windows and it will open up the direct X utility and run a test show you the version you are running and also does a 3d test if your system is capable...

Settings on my laptop to make RPG game run better


Not much can be done for gaming on laptops, unless you shell out over $2000 for a dedicated gaming laptop.

Ram could be a big issue, depending on how much you have. The screen resolution that you are playing at, the detail levels, and possible network connection speed can all contribute to a laggy game experience.

Try turning off any background services that you do not need when you are playing (ie. skype, iTunes, etc...), perhaps checking your video card to see if you have the latest drivers as well.

Graphic problem


Too many things are running in the background. Before you start your game, load the Task Manager. Under processes turn off your virus protection, other programs like Sype, Logmein, Adobe, Itunes, Picassa, Google, etc. Then try your game.

could try to add ram. laptops rarely have good video cards for gaming, and its prolly using system ram instead of dedicated video ram. If its using system ram, the reaction time will always be slower than if it had a suficient amount of dedicated video ram.
