    Just because it has memory, doesn't mean it's compatible. Most laptops have a shared video where as the games you talk about require a dedicated standalone video card. Only higher priced laptops have those. So your games won't work on the laptop.

Hi I think I have a solution. If perhaps your graphic card is working now with some games then your graphic card is not the problem. When new games come out they require more FPS (frames per second) in which you need an ungrade card. I suggestion is to buy the PC game first then read the PROCESS requirements and for instance mine says RADEON HD 2400 HD and I need a 4800 to play my new game :( go I am giving up on PC games because of the consistant upgrades Good Luck!

ATI x600 displaying checkerboard pattern when playing games


Sounds like specific overheating problems that only affect certain game engines or certain functions in them or is may be memory leak that only happens when computer has been running programs for a period of time.

No One Lives Forever uses Lithtech 2.0: Talon engine, however it was later revised to Lithtech 2.2 whose fixes were included in the latest NOLF patch. Make sure you have the latest patch for NOLF.

Freedom Force uses NetImmerse engine.
If possible try if you have same issues with another games with old NetImmerse engine. See list here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gamebryo#NetImmerse_games

Far Cry uses CryENGINE. Far Cry was actually developed by Crytek as a technology demo for Nvidia display adapters and when the company saw its potential, it was turned into a game. As a conclusion I would say this game is very likely optimized for Nvidia display adapters and issues may be because of ATI display adapter drivers.

If nothing else helps try somewhere with nVidia. ATI has a lot of issues with old games released before or near year 2000, because of its drivers and they do not seem to correct driver issues on old games. When looking nVidia driver release notes you find more often game specific corrections or maybe they just document them better.

My computer freezes when gaming & the graphics becomes corrupted


You can try going to your video card manufacture's website and downloading the latest drivers for your card. Once downloaded restart your computer and try running the game.

My computer freezes when gaming & the graphics becomes corrupted


As a gamer myself, most issues I had like those ended with me up/downgrading my videocard drivers if it wasn't something like a fan/heat problem. Nvidias' newest driver is the best I've used to date, though I have heard others have had problems with it. get a benchmark utility, if you haven't already. try out some of the other drivers available, if your comfortable doing that. go to nvidia's site and let thier engine detect the proper driver. Best of luck ..

What kind of games does my vga support?


ok, you can play any game that dosen't exceed your processor speed and memory capability. I recommend upgrading your ram to 2 gigs. this will insure optimal performance. remember, look on the bottom of every PC game you plan to buy and check the minimum requirement on the bottom or back side of the game box. as long as the requirements don't exceed your processor speed and memory, you are good to go. You can PLay WoW on this unit at this point but, be sure to keep the detail level at the medium setting until you get more memory.

Please rate and have a great day:)
