Question about Dell Inspiron XPS M1710 Notebook
I have played many games on my 1710 and never had any issues; however, almost all of the more graphical intense games i play (mostly newer 3d games) i get periodic but regular intervals of about 3fps and random flashes of graphic distortions. the problem will last for about 15-30 sec and then frames will return to normal and distortion will disappear. As i said before it occurs on regular intervals. this machine has never overheated to my knowledge. I plugged in an external monitor and i did not see the glitches but still experienced the fps drop to nothing for regular 15-30 sec intervals. games this has happened on: Vangard Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter Company of Heroes Two Worlds WoW This doesnt happen on many games, like: DAoC Ghost Recon (original) Fallout Tactics IL2 and expansions Thank you for your help.
Based on that game list it sounds like the problem is related to hardware T&L(transform and lighting) as the games that cause the problem require T&L and the other games don't require it and their fine. It's a start, also have tried both direct3d and opengl modes? Good Luck
