Sounds like you need a simple reactivation. Try the link and article below. You should probably skip the uninstall instructions.
Hi, This may seem good spec PC to you but the problem is the memory you really need to have 16-GB memory. The game your playing is also graphics heavy if you double your memory then you will run it fine. Please leave me feed back: Malcolm Campbell, Thanks.
I'll assume that your notebook is otherwise working fine. Generally most laptops will play simple games with no problems. They do not have the hardware to run something demanding such as Call of Duty. I don't know what version of windows you have but I think the 530 should have come with Vista. Vista is a wee bit of a resource hog so that is one problem. You only have 512mb of ram and that really isn't enough to run Vista let alone something demanding such as a game. The 530 supports up to 2gb of system ram and that is important for a few reasons. First you need to have enough to let Vista run properly and that will use everything you can give it. If you could get it over 1gb you would notice a substantial increase in performance. The last and biggest problem is the video hardware. In this laptop is uses shared memory. This means it does not have dedicated fast video ram but instead relies on the using the system ram. So while you might have 512 of system ram the video card will take probably about 64 mb of that. If you update it to say 2gb then this can increase to a max of I think 225mb. That sounds like a lot but it is shared slower system ram. You do find new gamer laptops with high spec video chips and dedicated vram but even those do not perform as well as a desktop with the same or smaller amount of video ram. Unlike a desktop you cannot change out the video on a laptop so what you have your are stuck with. When it comes to gaming especially something like first person shooters the video card is the key to everything. I have a dual core laptop with 4gb of ram a very stripped down version of windows and 1gb of system ram dedicated to the video. I also have a old 2.8ghz single core pentium with 1gb of system ram but it has a new 1gb video card (important as these have a video processor and do not use the system one) and this does play call of duty at 60-100fps and anything else I can find to try on it. I tried the video card as an $75 experiment as I was about to replace the system. I didn't do that. It makes that much of a difference.
I hesitate to call these fixes as they really won't get you what you want out of any laptop with similar hardware like yours. That really isn't possible because of the slower system ram and shared ram probllems. The first thing is to max out the ram. It will cost a few dollars but then you can max out the size of the shared video ram.Nothing else will have as much effect as doing this to your laptop. Turn off anything you can in vista to speed up performance. It probably has most of it turned off now due to the low ram you have. Disable anything you don't need running. Fir instance office and adobe will load speed loaders at boot up. They are supposed to make these pop open faster. Disable them and you won;t notice the difference for those programs but you will in the system resources they consume. Also make sure anything like msn or yaho do not start with windows. msmessenger especially can at times be a real hog for resources. There are very few programs that ever need to load something at start up to run. Most are for convenience and each then steals resources. Not a big deal if you are not gaming and have plenty to spare but in your case very important. If you are dealing with simple games such as web based card games then usually the issue is with jave. You may need to download and install the java package from sun. As I mentioned you can't really make it into a hardcore gamer machine but hopefully you can see what the problems are to doing that with almost any laptop (not just yours).
First off I gotta say,bad computer case to work with(Not much room).If you plan on gaming and putting your graphics on high on every game then you might want to consider a new case cause good graphics cards wont fit but I have found some that do and they play every game til this day but I have to adjust some of the settings.I chose the EVGA GeForce GTS 450, and the EVGA GEFORCE GTX 260 hense I have two of this hellions!Both graphics cards I would say are about even now that I am running 8GB(4x2GB RAM),I just added 2 2GB ram sticks seeing as how you can only run 8GB on this motherboard and it already comes with 2 2GB ram sticks not sure of the brand they use but they work with the low profile ram sticks located here ---->http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231253 <----The cool part is they will replace them if they ever stop working for whatever reason!If I were you I would get these pair on the link I showed you and either of those graphics cards and I guarantee you wont feel let down,trust me,I was just gonna start all over with all new stuff before I realized that for like $50-150 I could have reliable computing,networking etc. plus Great gaming quality with the new DirectX11 pc games of today!NewEgg.com also has hand on videos you can watch that will show/teach you how to do it all your self!I hope this helps,good luck! -CB
Make sure you have installed the correct type of ram into the board. Here are the ram specs for that board
• Memory: Support DDR2 533/667 MHz 2 x DDR2 DIMM Memory Slot Max. Supports up to 4GB Memory
Hope this helps
Increasing the RAM does not harm machine it will be faster while accessing multiple applications on the operating system it's very good to have 2GB RAM on a Laptop .Normally u get 1GB RAM on a laptop when u buy
