Graphics for games only 1/2 the screen on Sony Viao desktop

When I try and load a game onto my pc, it loads fine, but then the graphics are only on the top 3/4 of the screen (there is a large black line on the bottom portion). I have tried all sorts of compatibility issues and none of those seem to correct the problem. I know it is not the computer itself because with anything else I have a complete screen. It is only the graphics for games and some of the games are brand new and some of the games are older. It does it for all the pc games. Any thoughts on why this is and any ways to fix the problem?

Check each game under "OPTIONS" and see if the display is set to 1024X768 or what ever. if it is that high, you may need to drop it back to the 800's.
Also, make sure you have the lastest DirectX drivers from Microsoft.

Why wont my acer aspire z5700 pc play call of duty it loads up but its plays very slow


The simple answer is because you are playing a rather modern game on a computer that is not provisioned for playing modern high-end games.It looks like this model of computer includes an integrated Intel graphics chip with only 128 MB at the most. Intel integrated graphics chips are notorious for not being very good with games (unless the game si 5 years old or more). To play modern games, you need a computer with a discrete graphics adapter, and bare minimum 5000 MB to 1 or more GB of memory on the graphics card. Higher end systems might have several GB of on-card memory (it's been a while since I have checked).

Video Scrambles After Loading Screens


Sometimes things like this are much simpler than they seem, but since the problem appears so severe, it freaks you out. I'm assuming since you didn't state it that you haven't tried many if any fixes at all. So I will start with one of the most basic ones.

First try checking the settings on the video options for your video card... "display options" or the geforce console.. if you are using anti aliasing... what setting is it on? 2x? 3x? Other than that, try using the lowest video settings for the game and see if it still does the same distortions/freezing. if not, your settings may have just been too high, gradulally ease them up to the highest setting you can without it having problems during loading.

If none of that works.. try the following options.

1. Try re-installing the games themselves.
2. Try rolling back your video driver.
3. Try updating your video driver to the newest possible version.

Try to remove the graphic card and then clean with soft clothe and then insert it again and test.

Can't loade game into computer


Uninstall and then reinstall your game. This problem happens when a corrupted file was copied to the file directory. If the same error appears after reinstalling the game, acquire a new installer of the game. Not all game cd or dvd are working fine. Mass production of these medias creates a few rejects. I hope get what I"m saying.
