Lags in games.


Hi. Try lowering the video settings on that game, because usually for this game you should have at least a 256mb graphic card and 1GB of RAM or memory. Just make put it on the video settings on the lowest settings posible like 640X480 and also try turning off some video enhancement on that game, if you still having some lagging problem then consider upgrading your graphics card and memory. Hope This Helps

SIR, I WANT TO KNOW HOW TO CHECH AND


hi firstly, the only way to increase your video card memory will be to purchase a pci-e graphics card for your system, system memory could do with putting up if you are playing games as that amount will just about run windows itself, if you have an onboard graphics card these are not very good to play top end games like COD MW2, and things like that, get a 1 gb graphics card for your system this should play 99% of all games out there, and as i said get more system memory at least 2gb ddr2 is what you need especially as you have a dual core this will help you allot, there is a site that has very good priced graphic cards here..www.ebuyer.com try them hope this helps..ps i am a gamer myself..

Dell Inspiron E1705: Getting lines/blocks of color on monitor


From a power off state, press the Fn key and the power button, this will run the BIST which is a diagnostic on the LCD, if you get screens of solid colors.
From what you describe, I'd suspect the video card which could be the motherboard or memory, try the memory modules one at a time, see if the issue only occurs with one module

My computer doesn't work a application program


Make sure your system meets the minimum requirements for the game.
Operating system: 2000/XP Processor:1.0GHz. Memory:256MB Hard Drive: 1.2GB
DVD ROM:8Speed
Video Card:32 MB
Sound Card:direct X 9.0c compatible

If problem is with loading or playing with graphics, there are controls in the game that allow you 'shut down' some of the graphical effects that can help get the game working. Also, shutting down unnecessary programs like instant messengers can free memory needed for game. Right-click items in task area (lower right corner) and exit or close items you don't need during game play.

I have built several gaming computers and if I had your problem, the first thing I would try is to add a stick of memory.Then I would get me a graphics card with some memory built on the board (256 meg). You motherboard should run a pci graphics card with no problem.

Usually with that card, that condition happen if there isn't enough video memory to process the graphics.  Does the memory card memory settings you are using acceptable to the game you are playing?

Computer and video card memory/ram


Hello there.

Answers to questions are reported on the website.
Graphics card memory is independent of main system memory. Your graphics card has 256MB of memory dedicated to graphical tasks, such as playing videos, games and animations. Main system memory is seperate and is used for loading programs and applications.

New graphics cards will have even more memory, so to answer your question: no video memory on the graphics card does not have to match main system memory in the computer.

Possible times when main system ram is used by the graphics card is when the graphics hardware is integrated into the motherboard. Please click here to find out more about graphics video memory.

Hope this helps.

Games so laggy


Integrated Intel graphics are not recommended for games because 3d graphics for games are too demanding. I would try lowering the detail settings and resolution of your games to the lowest possible settings.

It seems that your motherboard has no AGP or PCI express slots for installing a video card i recommend you buy a new motherboard and video card, perhaps a whole new computer will be more cost effective if you want to have better performace for your games.

Here's a video that explains why dedicated video graphics cards are so important, and why integrated video cards are not good for games.
