New Graphic card gives me a blue screen (or shuts pc down) when I go to play a game after 5 minutes or so and then recovers to reboot. Hello, I have a 2.8 gb CPU/1.5 gb mem/IBM ThinkCentre a50p...


Try reinstalling the drivers from AMD. If that doesn't help the problem, use a program like GPU-Z to monitor the temperature of the graphics card. If a graphics card overheats, it will shut the computer down giving a blue screen.
If it ends up it is overheating, try taking the side of the computer while you're playing a game or installing another fan.

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


Hi,
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.


Regards.

turn your graphics settings down.make sure nothing else is running when playing games.Also most games play ok, but a gaming pc works best.And you say your pc is a few years old things slow down over time.make sure u have all service pack updates and windows/firewalls virus removers running in the back ground will really slow you down.disconnect fron net and shut them down

Playing Medieval 2 total war and game crashes


In my experience, game crashes usually occur due to graphic card drivers needing to be updated, they are either old or corrupt. Go to nvidia.com and download the latest drivers. Another thing to check is your device manager for any devices listed that are having trouble or not installed. I can help you more with this part if you tell me what operating system you are using.

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.

What are the Direct X recommendations for the game? Is your direct X up to date.?

You can check if your graphics card is compatible with 3D graphics by going to Start>run (just on the right below search), and type in dxdiag,

This will bring up your direct X diagnosis program and enable you to run some checks.
Check to see if 3D graphics Accelleration is enabled and then run the video and sound checks to make sure that you are having no problems.
