May be your graphics card is not supporting the game. Please ensure you've enough space in your C drive, where the game is installed, and increase your virtual memory. Make sure your graphics card supports the game. Now there shouldnt be no problem.

Thanks, hope i've helped you.

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.

My laptop when playing games gets to 88-106 C games such as warhammer online or dawn of war 2 could u tell me what the problem is

Laptops are not really designed for heavy gaming like warhammer.
The reason the laptop is getting hot is because all the system resources are being used to power the graphics card so you get a decent gaming experience, the more you work the laptop the hotter it will get.
If you want to do some serious gaming then it's recommended that you get a desktop for that purpose as with a desktop you can change the internal components to suit you.
If you want to carry on using the laptop then it's a good idea to purchase a cooling mat for the laptop to help keep it cool while play your games.
If you carry on playing heavy games as you are then at some point the graphics chip burn out.

Inspiron 6000 shuts down while playing Magic Match. I have it sitting on external fan, so it's not overheating. This is the only game so far, that shuts it down after 15 minutes of play.

This could be down to a graphics driver that needs updating or a direct x problem. Try updating the graphics driver and see if that resolves your problem.

Not able to select power options properties

It sounds like your BIOS is set to non-PnP.
There is a setting that is a choice of Plug and Play or non-Plug and Play in the board options of the BIOS of most PCs made after 1995.
If that is not the issue, go to Dell and download their updates and drivers (there is an urgent update in the 'System Utilities' sub folder).

Screen remains black

It seems to be the screen of the system has gone bad , but in case if you see DELL on start of the system, it can be OS which is corrupted but the way you are telling that you can see it on external display it it the Monitor.

Good Luck

Video card

Notebook computers unless made specifically for gaming aren't able to play the graphic intense games like gears of war and games that are graphic intense, I run an sli machine with dual graphics cards, ans still cannot play on the highest graphics settings on some machines, the new motherboards are runnong 3 an 4 video cards for gaming rigs. Most notebooks run shared graphics memory and don't have a seperate card for graphics, look at the alienware notebooks, and you will see what I am talking about, unless you have a 'Gaming laptop" custom job, playing the latest games is out for most normal laptops.
