Nba 2k10 is really slow on my computer, i just got the game and its the biggest thing i have on my computer probably. i have tons of space left, why is it so slow when i go into quick games?


Its not really a question of hardrive space. Its of RAM and graphics card memory. Your computer has 3 gigs of ram and the game requires one however if you have other things running while your playing they will also take up ram and when all the ram is being used the computer will run slowly. Try not to have anything running while you play the game and see if that helps.

If its still slow it could be because of video memory. Try to play in low graphics detail which will make it easier for the computer to "process"

Hope this helps.

I just bought a PC game called Viva Pinata for my daughter. I had to upgrade the driver for an ATI Radeon 9800 Pro and downloaded the ''Catalyst'' set. I thought this would take care of the problem, but...


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

My computer shuts down in the middle of the game (Toontown)


Try to uninstall the program and reinstall it. Normally, this happens due to insufficient memory resources like video memory is insufficient and the system RAM.

Game prob


as long as you dont have tonnes of huge games that are all like 6-7GBs you should be fine, the laptop you have was built to support alot of memory and can run most games excellently. as far as i know it should run like a charm and not slow down the laptop at all. by the way, what kind of virus protection do you have.

My laptop is goin really slow and i dont know why. i downloaded my favorite game world of warcarft and it was fine but now everthing on my laptop including world of warcarft is goin realy slow please help...


Did you install many more things after you downloaded the game and before the game had gotten slow?
Sometimes games take a tremendous amount of resources from the computer, and anything else that can be running in the background such as anti-virus software can really bog the system down. If you game crashes to the desktop, this can be a sign that other programs are running and taking up to much of your resources. If you game plays fine, and then slows down after a few hours, and only a reboot will speed it up, than this can be a lack of RAM. I would suggest that you start by turning down the frame rates, and details on the game and see if this helps. Generally, games have the options to do this from the main menu. If this doesn't work, I would suggest that you turn programs off that aren't needing to continually run on the computer.

Slowing down suddenly when gaming


Hi rajiv2612.
Suggest you check for any software update's from GeForce for you're 8600 GT. Also check for any software patches for the game (s). (Include windows update service as well).
The normal stuff like running windows system defrag & disk cleanup utilities should be run once a month for gamers.
Lastly, if you feel heat may be an issue. Open the PC case & leave opened while playing the game that seems to slow down the most. If the game does not slow down (After checking & updating all of the above), than maybe you need to add a 3" fan to the case, so fresh air blows directly onto the 8600 GT.

Good Luck!

No signal


This sounds like your Video card might not be compatible with the game you are playing. You might need a better video card. Before you do anthing else, check to see if your computer is fast enough to play it.

Big games can crash slow computers, also it could just be a bad monitor.

Try checking the cord between the monitor and the computer.
