1 Answer

My HP Touchsmart T5850 has an issue with the screen blacking out

I play world of warcraft and when i play the game the monitor will blackout when to much is going on. Ive tried lowering the resolution, shrinking the screen size and nothing seems to help. I have vista on the system and it is brand new. the only software installed so far is WoW. It does give an error about the driver crashing and successfuly recovering. Its a brand new computer i would assume it has the latest driver. I also have a problem with my DVD drive not recognizing that it has a DVDR in the drive when i try to make a backup disk. Thanks

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.

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.

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.

My moniters screwed


Sometimes this is due to graphics cards, but most of the time it is due to drivers. If it does not happen when you are using your PC for other things the problem probably just lies with the graphic card, driver, and this particular game or any game similar. Drivers are the most notorious! Check your requirements on the game for graphics cards recommendations! Let me know!
