There is a problem of overheating. Maybe the specs are almost exactly the same as the game requirements. So the PC still has to work hard. This causes overheating, which should not happen if it is even perfectly compatible.

So, this means that something is causing the computer to overheat. Firstly, shut down any open background programs. Also, see that the laptop vents are not blocked by any thing around. Remember to dust the heatsinks, fans and the casing. Also, the keyboard and main vents. If you can, vacuum it all and open up the casing to be sure that all the gunk is out.

Slow wont load games even with extra memory


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
- Shut down all background running applications
- Run Reginout Utility for extreme gaming experience
- Update DX on your system

Hi, pls solve my problem. i hve i hve pentium dual core processor with ATI radeon HD 5450 graphics card & 2 GB DDR 3 ram. Every letest game is running in my pc exept Wheelman. when i start the game...


It may be as simple as to many running processes. Different game require different resources, CPU, Memory, Graphics. If the game has setting, adjust to a optimal setting for your machine. OR shut down unnessary processes. On a "slower" machine I use a freeware program, RAZER GAME BOOSTER to shut down unneeded programs. You can download, configure, and try it : http://www.razerzone.com/gamebooster

My lap gets switched off automatically when i played Pro Evolution Soccer


When you are playing games you use a lot of the computers resources.

If you are playing games that use lots of graphics. You might not have enough computer ram installed running your computer over its limits placing to much strain on the cpu central processing unit causing memory dumps and crashes.

If you're not sure if a module is right for your system, use the
Crucial Memory Advisor tool for a list of guaranteed compatible modules. First you will need to select the manufacturer from a drop down list then select your product line from a drop down list then select the model then click find it will take you directly to compatible ram also you will have an option to scan your system You should always ask for a guarantee on the compatibility before making any purchase and try to buy for working pairs if possible. Hope this helps.

My laptop hang when i play any games


The simple solution here is that you've got an underpowered laptop assumingly trying to run newer games. To play any games aside from text based DOS, Recommended specs are:
2gb RAM or more
1.6ghz processor OR MORE
3D capable graphics card with 256mb or more.
