Re: slow gameplay

Does your machine meet the games minimum requirements?
If so have you tried turning the graphics down in your game interface?
Laptop Graphics cards usually use your systems memory so they have a harder time rendering complex graphics. I play WoW and have my graphics turned up on my desktop but have them turned down to minimal for my laptop.

Vista also takes allot of system memory thus leaving less for your video card. If you are going to play games on it on a regular basis I would suggest you have a minimum of 2GIGs of memory.

My video game plays very slow

Have you been able to play other modern games on your laptop? I'm thinking the graphics card built into the laptop simply might not be powerful enough to handle the game, unfortunately.

That particular graphics chipset has been known to not perform too well on more demanding games, even Modern Warfare 2.

Some steps you might take would be to lower some of the settings in the game. Turn off anisotropic filtering, anti-aliasing, anything you can lower to speed up gameplay. Adding RAM to your computer may also help, but I don't think you'll be able to get a completely fluid game out of that laptop sadly.

Want to upgrade FPS

If you own a laptop you are limited to the Graphics Adapter, Memory, CPU, etc., that's in the machine, more or less. The Frames Per Second are what they are. What you can do is elininate porcesses that are running. Try RAZER GAME BOOSTER at:, It's freeware, you configure the processes that you want to disable. I use it on older machines with limited specs.

Azer aspire 5472z keeps shuttin down when running my online mmorpg

There is an issue of trojen or virus so you should clean it up. Secondly, if it take a few minutes and then repeated the same condition, absolutely you need to clean your fan which is not cooling at all. Contact me further more issue or this problem persist.

Good Luck

I have a problem with fps. When i bought my acer 5315,the fps was good when i played games, but suddenly the fps dropped to 2-8. I have tried updating all the drivers and stuff and dont know what to do

Games always need RAM and Graphics cards to keep the frames from stuttering.Your Acer
Manufacturer: Acer Product MPN MPN Aspire 5315-2153 Key Features Processor dtrquestion.gif Celeron M 1.73 GHz Hard Drive dtrquestion.gif 80 GB Serial ATA Display 15.4 in. WXGA+ TFT Active Matrix Processor Processor Type dtrquestion.gif Celeron M Processor Speed dtrquestion.gif 1.73 GHz Memory Installed RAM 1 GB
is low on both.Win XP x32 likes 3GB of RAM and Vista wants even more.The Frames Per Second is purely a Graphics Processor Hog.
This is from Fixya website;
Your graphics card "is" built in and cannot be upgraded.The latest drivers "from Intel" is your only option for an upgrade. To be less graphics intense decrease your screen resolution by right clicking your "desktop" and clicking "properties" then "settings".Move the pointer left one click "screen resolution".The screen will jump around a bit while it's resetting,hit "apply" and "ok".The resolution will now be less but your game will speed up-some-ultimately this laptop is not built for fast paced games.Sorry bout the news,take care!

My graphics card is fast at one point then slows down!

Make sure the driver for the notebook from the manufacturers website is installed, and not the video driver from Microsoft's Windows Update. After that, update Java, Adobe Flash and Adobe Shockwave. Finally, check for updates for DirectX (version 9.0C). Post back your results, please.

I'd like to upgrade the graphics card in my Toshiba notebook Model Number 8375, Ser No PNB309032182... Which grahics cards would be suitable/compatable? I tend to watch online TV on demand, work with...


To make it simple on you:
1- If you have an intel built in graphics then for sure there is no way to upgrade because you have no graphics slot, be it agp or pci-ex, the graphics is within the chipset.
2- If you have a pci-ex then there is a slim possibility of (a) having the chip plugged in throw a socket and hence exchangable vs. being soldered in and unexchangable, (b) not having any compatibility issue with another chip. PCI-EX is not a standardized technology for notebooks, and thus each manufacturer has SEVERAL standards that they follow!

If you want for your model, let me know the graphics card installed in your notebook.

When i scroll on any page my screen is going so slow im able to se go frame by frame


This is common problem if the graphics drivers are not installed correctly or not installed at all. Try reinstalling graphics drivers. If you do not know where you might find graphics drivers for your notebook, you can download them here.
