The only time I have experienced this on my console is when I have just pulled an all night session or have once again forgotten to turn my box off. Some of my friends believe there is a direct correlation between this type of behavior and increasing your chances of seeing the screen or circles of death with your system.
I would make sure that you are turning off your console when you are not using it, and that it is not piled under a heap of clothes or games. I keep a small fan by mine that circulates the air and keeps the system cool. If you are in a hot environment, running the heater a lot, keeping the console touching your TV/comp that is running constantly, or are even in the upper levels of a building you could be unknowingly subjecting your system to some stress. You could take the gadget way out and by the cooling pads that you keep your laptop on. I have to do this in the summer since it reaches 115 and by the 3rd hour of play my system is hating me.

Can I Play games that require 2.2Ghz in 1.6Ghz

If its a free download or you already have the sim, then try it, otherwise if you must fork out your hard-earned cash, probably not advisable.
The 'need for speed', or higher CPU clock-speed, is to allow the sound, video frames, rendering and algorithm calculations to all run smoothly in sync.
Check if they specify 'Absolute Minimum Requirement'.
On my old PC, an iNtel P4 1.6GHz single processor running Win XP, 2GB RAM, I barely managed to run intensive resource-hungry games, but often ended up with a frustrating 'slide-show' or total freeze.
After upgrade to 64-bit 3.58GHz core-2-duo, 8GB RAM, i'm thrilled at SMOOTH performance.

Hi i keep gettin this error code 80010514 when playin cod all other games work fine do u know what it is?

I have been doing a fair amount of research about this issue. I have found that the majority of this code is with COD Black OPS. As you probably already noticed while playing online if you even got that far was a real choppy game online in the multiple player mode. The game sold and really is Overloading the system they have sat up for the game. Lag, Non booting, and not getting into matches. I am inserting a Web address with discussion. There are a few steps people have done and it worked, and some have tried it and it didnt work. I am passing this along to you for you to make the decission.. I hope this helps you out, or at least understand what is going on..

Can i hook up my xbox to a labtop and get on xboxlive

The Laptop will need to have Internet Sharing enabled, but yes you can plug it into the Laptops Ethernet Jack and use the Laptops Wireless to get onto X-Box Live. This will be slower however, so you will lag playing games that require a faster connection, such as Halo 3 or Call of Duty.

You may want to try the following.

Disable windows search, it may be trying to index files in the background and HD access may cause annoying pauses while playing games.

Check that your anti virus is not running an automatic or scheduled scan when you are playing, this will deffinatley cause jittering.

Are you uning an integrated graphics chipset ? If you are you may want to upgrade to a discrete card AMD 3850 are very cheap and i use mine for Mirrors Edge and Battleforge and it runs great.

Update your graphics card drivers.

Use add remove programs and get rid of everthing you dont use. The apps may have processes running when you are not even using them. iTunes and Quicktime are really bad in this respect.

It you are playing online ensure that you are not running file sharing apps in the background. Also if you share internet access with anyone else check they are not doing the same. File sharing is a nightmare for online playing performance.

Close everything you are not using including IE and Firefox. Flash ads in web browsers can use a suprising amount of CPU time.

Hope this Helps

Lag lag lag lag

Hi there,

Some ways to get rid of your lag is to change internet service providers. If you have a wireless adapter, you may also want to get a new router. If you also have an older router, you may need to change that even you don't use the wireless internet. And for the overheating 360, it should not get hot after that amount of time. Move away from your tv, put it on a flat hard surface.(Not Carpet!), and move it away from a wall that might be preventing it's ventilation.

Hope This Helps,
