There are a few things you can do here. Depending on how big of a gamer you are. I would first make sure that you have the most recent driver updates for your video card and the most recent version of DirectX as well.

When getting into PC gaming there are 3 things that you need to worry about.

  • Processor Speed
  • RAM
  • Graphics Card
With these 3 items the bigger the better, depending on what your motherboard will hold.

I would check to see if there is a flash update or a java update. Usually facebook games use one of these to run their games. I would start with flash.

Chefville will freeze off and on and refresh takes forever


You can be having boot sector problems in your hard drive, or you are not running sufficient RAM to run the game you are playing. Freezing happens when the 'Brain' cant find what it is expected to do next. How much ram do you have? Did you check the system minimums for the game b4 you installed it? Newer games are designed to work with hi tech machines and tend to confuse older machines by their demands.

It may be that your graphics card isn't quite man enough for the job. You'll have to check out the system requirements for these programmes. It may mean the purchase of a new graphics card with a higher rating.

Dvd not read or played


Try to boot from the DVD rive by using any a windows installation disk. If you can't, then boot to windows and download and update your firmware. If still the same thing, load bios defaults, shut down system, unplug system from power outlet, push and hold down the tower's power button for ten seconds, replug system, turn on system, try to use the dvd drive. If still no go, replace dvd drive.
