A video card with more onboard RAM would help cure the stuttering but it also depends on what you have running in the background. Hope this helps.

Hi i bought toshiba c640 laptop i want play gta game is it good to play or not pls tell me


Hi It would with better if you will use joystick controller to enjoy playing GTA , Its just like your playing game console by using joystick controller. You check the price of joystick controller for your computer online or nearest computer center

-The specification of your computer meets the system requirements and I believe that your not going to have any problem installing GTA also playing GTA.
Minimum System Requirements:

800 MHz Intel Pentium III or 800 MHz AMD Athlon or 1.2GHz Intel Celeron or 1.2 GHz AMD Duron processor
128 MB of RAM
8 speed CD / DVD drive
915 MB of free hard disk space
(+ 635 MB if video card does NOT support DirectX Texture Compression)
32 MB video card with DirectX 9.0 compatible drivers ("GeForce" or better)
Sound Card with DirectX 9.0 compatible drivers Keyboard & Mouse


Recommended System Requirements

Intel Pentium IV or AMD Athlon XP processor 256(+) MB of RAM
16 speed CD / DVD drive
1.55 GB of free hard disk space
(+ 635 MB if video card does NOT support DirectX Texture Compression)
64(+) MB video card with DirectX 9.0 compatible drivers ("GeForce 3" / "Radeon 8500" or better with DirectX Texture Compression support)
DirectX 9.0 compatible sound card with surround sound
Gamepad (USB or Joystick Port)
Keyboard & Mouse

Thinking of buying old Compac Presario from brother in law, with 19" monitor. It is a 3400 AMD Athlon. What would you suggest is a fair price to pay. It was purchased in 2006 and is fine for my use.


Hi

See here for an idea of the 2nd User market price of this computer and its RAM Memory Modules:

http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_kw=PRESARIO&_kw=SR1475CL&_dmpt=Desktop_PCs

This specification of your brother's computer may seem okay for offline, single function-at-a-time computing functions, but will almost certainly be unbearably slow browsing on the internet, opening busy webpages, accessing the internet at peak times, downloading data and updates, multi-tasking and on functions like video streaaming.

No disrespect at all to him, but even at the time your brother brought this computer in 2006, there was better, faster Dual Core CPU and DDR2 RAM technology emerging and widely available.

You would almost certainly need to upgrade the RAM by removing the 512Mb stick installed (and then discarding it - almost nobody needs 512Mb RAM sticks now) and replacing it with 2 x 1Gb sticks.

Because 1Gb DDR RAM Memory Modules are a scarce commodity, no longer in production, much sought after by users with old, slow computers and highly prized and treasured by those who have managed to get their hands on some, there is a rapidly dwindling pool of supply and the price is relatively high.

When you add the cost of the computer and the RAM, you would probably be better off using the same money to buy a faster, more powerful, more up-to-date notebook, netbook, nettop or even a slightly more up-to-date, used Desktop that takes DDR2 RAM rather than the older, slower DDR RAM of your brother's computer.

The best outcome for both of you, would be for your brother to get the highest price he can for his computer from eBay or some similar site and for you to browse Amazon Market Place for the best, most up-to-date computer you can afford.

www.amazon.com > Amazon Market Place features reputable, trusted suppliers trading warrantied products under Amazon's oversight. Pay with a major credit card for further protection from your card issuer.

I hope this helps

I just got cod waw game but computer doesnt support vertex data am i wasting my time. I have acer L3600


Hello there,
COD WAW has a minimum system requirements of the following:
CPU: AMD 64 3200+/Intel Pentium 4 3.0GHz
RAM: 512MB (XP) / 1GB (VISTA)
HDD: 8 Gigabyte
GPU: 256MB Nvidia 6600GT/ATI Radeon 1600XT
One main reason why you cannot play the game, is that Intel GMA 3100 is not capable of rendering the vertex shaders that has to do with lighting.
  • In order to play the game, you need to buy at least greater than the PCIE video card mentioned. It's that simple.
  • For example buy an ATI HD 4670 512MB or Nvidia 9500GT 512MB consider the memory.
  • Click the link for PCIE Video card installation procedure. Installation


Hopefully you will enjoy COD WAW third person shooter game.
Hopefully this information helps.
Thank you for using FixYa.

Videos play slow & stutter


Welcome to fixya.

Since you are able to play the video, New video drivers won't add much to the perfromance.

The stuttering of the video can be of two reasons.

1) If your source cd/dvd or even the file on your comp might have been corrupted.

This can be fixed by geting a new copy of the video or to use some better video players which have a higher error correction.

2) You are running on a low RAM/CPU.

Increasing the Virtual memory can help upto a certain extent but it has a threshold and after which moving the data from Ram to virtual memory and bringing it back to ram will become a overhead to the system and will eventually slow down.

If your system has a very slow processor or has a very low RAM or you are running multiple heavy applications parrellely, Then you may need to go for a system upgrade.
