Video Quality Problems

I play an online game called World of Warcraft and I have to lower the video settings to keep the computer from shutting down. I also have a problem with overheating unless I have a chillmat under the computer when running this game. Sometimes the computer will shut down even with the chill mat under the computer.

Hey,

the laptop is overheating and shuts down to prevent hardware failure. Use canned air to blow dust out from the fans that may improve it a little.

your computer simply may not be able to play world of warcraft anymore. you may need to splurge and buy a more game-intensive computer, or upgrade the video card. good brands to look for are anything ati and nvidia.

I have played Warcraft an have had the same problems before i upgraded my video card,

Normal it goes black or freezes do to the video card not having enough memory to process the request.

Graphics lagging, stuttering in world of warcraft


Try this once
World of Warcraft System Requirements
The World of Warcraft system requirements are impressive. World of Warcraft requires a large amount of memory, hard drive space and, above all, a solid
internet connection.
For a Windows system, the minimum World of Warcraft system requirements are as follows:
- Intel Pentium III 800 MHz or AMD Athlon 800 MHz processor
- at least 512 MB of RAM,
- 32 MB graphics card,
- DirectX 9.0,
- 6.0 GB of hard drive space
- 4x CD-ROM
- 56k internet connection.
However, the recommended World of Warcraft system requirements are substantially higher:
- Intel Pentium IV 1.5 GHz or AMD XP 1500+ MHz processor
- 1024 MB of RAM
- 64 MB 3D graphics card
- broadband internet connection
- A two-button, scroll-wheel mouse is also recommended.
Millions of players connect daily to the World of Warcraft servers, and the amount of information being transferred from any one computer to the main terminals is enormous. But with all of these numbers and with all of these devices, frequent gamers know they will need to go above the minimal system requirements to experience the game fully. The minimal World of Warcraft system requirements only guarantee the game to run; they do not guarantee the game to run in a playable fashion.
There are some other known issues to keep in mind
- Some video cards may experience problems displaying certain textural effects while playing. Graphic issues may include colors shimmering across static textures, textures that appear solid green or white, and patches of texture or even geometry that are invisible.
- World of Warcraft/Burning Crusade requires the latest version of DirectX.
- Also, it is important that your video drivers are up-to-date and compatible with the latest version of DirectX. Outdated or incompatible video drivers can cause a variety of video and game play issues.
Something else you should keep in mind is that World of Warcraft had multiple expansion packs and down-loadable patches and these are also a factor into the World of Warcraft system requirements. Overtime, the specifications have shifted, and will keep shifting in the future; what was once acceptable to run the original game is no longer adequate for some expansions and patches. This will force players to upgrade their computers, if they wish to run the latest versions of the game. Gamers really have no choice; in order to compete, they must have the latest World of Warcraft software and a system that meets at least the recommended requirements; otherwise, you will keep stumbling around.

I play world of warcraft and it wont let me play


In your World of Warcraft directory you have a cfg folder and in it a cfg file. This has all your video settings. You will need to optimize these settings for your display type. Start off in a very low resolution with all your effects disabled. Set any sound effects to 0 as well. Now start the game and go into options. Set the rendering range low and disable other options as you can.

Turn them on a few at a time until slowly until you find what is tripping up your video card.

seems that the NAT setting on your router is not correct... most likely you cannot change this due to your ISP (internet service provider)

Video Card PNY VERTO GEFORCE 8400 GS stop working


adcg,
the world of war craft is played online through servers, not just on your computer. the version is needed to see if there are issues with your video card, Do you have XP home or XP pro?
you have more than 1 mb of ram
at this point I am going to say that you have issues with the video card take it back and get an ATI to replace it, they are better and have less issues.
you could also be having an overheat problem with the CPU and that means you need a new heat sink and fan assembly to keep the CPU cooler when you are running this game.
That is about all the help I can give you , my advice is to take the computer to a service center and have them look at the CPU heat sink and fan assembly to see if it is working properly.
hope this helps

Do you have video card installed in your motherboard?

If you have any do your have drivers installed for your video card?

If you do so pls check your settings for video and check foe the system requirements of World of Warcraft. Adjust your video setting to the specified recomendations found in the requirments for the game. System requirements located at the lower back part of your purchased cd.
