My laptop freezes when i try to play games


Does your system meets the minimum requirements for those game? If yes and if you don't play games and your system hangs too, do you get a blue screen with error codes on it? (e.g. 0x0000000E), if so it could possibly be a possible driver conflict and/or a hardware problem. Try running this at a command prompt, if your on vista run it as administrator (start > all programs > accessories > command prompt > right click > run as administrator), then on the black box, type /sfc scannow. Works on XP/Vista. It should fix any corrupt system files. Try also updating the drivers for your video card and try running Everest, a free diagnostic & benchmark tool, you can find it here.

Hope this helps.

could try to add ram. laptops rarely have good video cards for gaming, and its prolly using system ram instead of dedicated video ram. If its using system ram, the reaction time will always be slower than if it had a suficient amount of dedicated video ram.

Hi again,

For your posted gaming requirement, the Gateway M-1625 looks like more than sufficient. I am of the opinion that the advantages of DDR3 over DDR2 would not be significant with the games you have in mind. Additionally, Dual Core 2GHz AMD, 256MB memory on the ATI RADEON X1270 and 2Gb memory would of course make most current games happy. However, as stated in your other post, my concern is the the Vista OS which has been known to have so much memory issues which may affect the gaming performance of the machine. Perhaps a way to circumvent this is to upgrade to 4Gb memory. I would not suggest downgrading to XP due to unavailability of compatible drivers.

Wondern if computer can play games alright


Hi,

With that hardware spec, there should be no problem. However, if you would be running Vista, then there might be some memory usage issue. On the other hand, downgrading to XP might likewise have a few hitches due to driver(s) availability. Additionally, it might be informative if you can check other gaming forums and deliberate on the posted comments/experiences of others that have similar specs/machines.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

COD4 Multiplayer makes computer fans loud and hot.


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!

vista is a bugger for keeping bits of everything hidden for a rainy day,i.e half your hard drive. i dont know of a solution to your problem only that if your speck says you have 200g of this and 160 of that,it actually means that it does have that but will only let you see it if you can find the answer to the devista code!!
And if you can do that then your employed by microsoft to show the people that made vista how to get back out.lol sorry
