When you play online games it will usually require more system resources to power. Your processor also handles the data that is being sent and received during your online session. Some code for online games have more overhead than others. I do not believe that it has anything to do with your machine, but more the software and network overhead that the multiplayer game requires. If you notice that both single and multiplayer run on seperate executables...

Single Player = C:\Program Files\Activision\Call of Duty 4 - Modern Warfare\iw3sp.exe
Multiplayer = C:\Program Files\Activision\Call of Duty 4 - Modern Warfare\iw3mp.exe

Hope this helped!

Physical memory dumping when l start to play gta


providing the actual dump message will greatly increase the chances of a correct diagnostic of the problem. (yes the message actually tells us why it goes to physical mem dump) other than that i'd check the fans and fins for dust buildup (causes overheating)

I have 880 motherboard with amd phenom quadcore the fan is to loud can any one give me an idea what fan would suit and make less noisy as its to load.


Some fans are temperature-sensitive, i.e., when the CPU is "hot", the fan spins at high-speed, with more noise. For other fans, you can restart your computer, and enter BIOS SETUP, and set the speed of the fan, e.g., 50% or 70%, to make it quieter.

My computer is becoming really hot and noisy. After turning on the computer, everything is good (no noise). Once around 15 minutes passes by or I open up a lot of programs together, my computer starts...


Sounds like the fan is wearing out, as it heats up the fan needs to spin faster and if the bearings are wearing out it will start getting louder and it will also get hotter because the fan cannot keep up the heat being produced. You can replace the fan, most computer shops will carry replacements, also get a can of compressed air and give the inside of the computer a good cleaning. This will help keep things cooler as well. Also make sure that the air vents on the outside of the case are clear as well.

My hp pavilion a6110n product nogg781aa .Has anoisy cooling fan .How do I chang it.


If it's the processor fan that's noisy you can purchase a replacement. The fan and heatsink are normally a complete assembly you can find from many vendors online. This computer has a type AM2 socket; you need to make sure to get a cooling fan for that type. Be sure the replacement will fit into the same space as the original.

If it's the power supply fan thats loud, there may be a couple of possible causes. It may just be a noisy fan, in which case you can replace the power supply. Make sure to get one that has at least the same power rating as the original. Or the fan may be running at its maximum speed. I don't know about this computer in particular, but many computers control the fan speed depending on how hot the processor is (determined by sensors built into the main board). If the fan is running at its top speed, it can be quite noisy. This might be due to a defective power supply or problems with the fan control on the system board
